Physics PhD Student at Imperial College, Seven Years Experience Tutoring all Ages Across a Range of Subjects

Methodology

I split my classes equally between course-specific knowledge which is required for high performance in exams, and broad contextual knowledge to give enthusiasm to the student.

I find often the most important thing for a tutor is to help the student realise just how great their subject is. However, in particular for A levels and GCSE, a certain amount of specific learning is required and I ensure enough of this is done so the student can achieve the top grade they desire. In this way I hope to be both an academic role model, and help the student directly achieve their academic goals.

Background

Currently studying a PhD in Physics at Imperial College, London. Graduated from University College London with an MSci 1st with honours in Natural Sciences.

Currently I study different materials for use in solar power generation.

Over seven years of experience teaching Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Computer Science. Taught students of all ages (from 6 to 30+).

Taught many different exam boards, including Edexcel and AQA.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £45/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £235
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £450

Details

I have a 24hr cancellation policy. If the student would like to cancel and gives less than 24 hours notice, then a one-hour rate will be charged.
