Senior Stress and Strain Engineer offering maths and physics lessons up to A Levels

Methodology

My teaching method is based on understanding the students personality and particular needs / insecurities (in maths) and tailoring my approach accordingly. I believe that patience and empathy is key to unlocking a student's potential in maths and physics. Also I will always return to first principles if a student is having difficulties with a higher level concept.

Experience

I have a Master of Science in Structural Engineering and have given maths/physics lessons in the past to children aged 6 to 16 with great feedback. I studied maths and physics to a high level (I considered at one point becoming a maths teacher) and I have a great ability to teach and to explain difficult math/physics concepts with first principles. I am also an expert with Excel (including VBA programming), which is one of the main calculation software used by Science/Engineering/Analytic professionals of all sectors. I have worked as a Stress and Strain calculation engineer for 15 years, which enables me to provide great insight into how maths and physics are applied in the professional world.

Main strengths:
- Ability to rapidly understand and handle complex concepts and analytical tools,
- Extensive experience in FE software SACS, SESAM, STAAD PRO, STRUCAD, ANSYS, ABAQUS
- Good experience in both FE structural analysis and detail design through hand calculations
