What I find important in my teaching methods is helping the students understand concepts behind equations and principles so that the students can use their intuition to apply their knowledge to different problems. Understanding what goes on behind numbers is important so that nothing need to be remembered, rather than that they can understand it themselves and use logical steps to get to a solution.
I am a physics student at King's College London. I've always been a very mathsy person but I didn't think I would study physics while I was doing my GCSE's. While I studied it for A-Levels, the way my teacher taught physics really inspired me, he was very passionate about the subject and it turned out all you need to enjoy a subject is a good way in which the material is presented to make it interesting. I'd love to spread that kind of positivity on to other students who are uncertain about what they will do during their degree.
In 6th form my grades were:
Physics A level: B (4 marks away from an A)
Mathematics A level: A
Computer science AS: B
Further Mathematics A level: B
During those A-Levels I did a lot of work on physics in my spare time. This included me doing experiments at home which I did to answer my questions about physics that my teacher couldn't answer. One of my favourites was coding a program that worked out projectile motion including air resistance which is always assumed to be negligible during calculations.
I have proved my great work ethic by achieving those grades in A levels and getting accepted into King’s College, one of the best universities in London, to study physics.
