From my experiences self-teaching my Maths and Physics A-levels I have a unique understanding of the obstacles school-age students face. Beginning with firm foundations, I work with students to build the intuition and confidence needed to explore these fascinating subjects and excel in exams and beyond.
I work with students to develop a bespoke tutoring package depending on their goals; from complete courses running alongside school syllabi to more casual sessions centred around discussion, I aim to make these often challenging subjects engaging and tractable.
Often have I heard it said that maths and physics are difficult subjects but I fundamentally believe that, with the correct focus on fundamentals, everyone is capable of mastering their study.
I have been tutoring for three years both face-to-face and online and have good experience teaching students with different goals, from exam focus to general interest. Over this time I have taught students from a wide spectrum of abilities and educational backgrounds—from primary school all the way up to A-level.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Physics at the Royal Holloway University of London this summer (2020); prior to this I completed my Maths and Physics A-levels as an external candidate in the summer of 2017. I am now undertaking a Masters degree in Physics at the University of Nottingham.
Alongside my undergraduate studies I also ran Physics workshops in schools through SouthEast Physics Network (SEPnet). I also worked at the Royal Holloway as a teaching assistant for first-year undergraduate students in mathematics and physics in my final year.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Physics at the Royal Holloway University of London this summer (2020) where I achieved a 2:1 overall—in my final year I achieved first-class grades in every examined physics module. I am currently engaged in undertaking a Masters in Physics at the University of Nottingham; in the future I plan to complete a PhD in theoretical physics and begin a career as a professional physicist.
My teaching style is centred on building firm foundations of understanding; I have found that often the difficulties students face in tackling new material can be traced back to a poor understanding of basic concepts and I therefore focus heavily on these. It is my belief that time invested in building these foundations pays great dividends as it makes it much easier for students to both learn new material and remember the old.
I have taught students from a wide array of educational backgrounds and have come into contact with many different course syllabi, from KS3, GCSE through to A-level and even the American school syllabus in Mathematics. My lesson style is flexible depending on the goals of the student but I offer tuition that can follow as closely as is desired the syllabi of school or college courses; from my experiences self-teaching my A-levels I am practised at marking exam papers—therefore my tuition can encompass both ends of the educational spectrum, from casual discussion to formal exam preparation and everything in between.
As a mature student I spent time in the working world before undertaking my current academic programme; as a result of this time, I have learned the value of pride and professionalism at work. I pledge to exemplify both these attributes as a tutor to any prospective pupil.
