To get a general idea of my student's needs, I start by discussing their strengths and weaknesses before setting an initial assessment. Because physics is rooted in maths, if I notice that a learner is struggling with a particular mathematical skill, I will address this in the same way that I would tackle gaps in physics knowledge.
I like to set regular assessments, not only because it informs me about the rate at which a student is advancing, but also because it is crucial for learners to know how much they have progressed and the skills they need to continue to develop.
I make the most of technology whenever I can, so if a learner is struggling with a physics problem set for homework, I encourage them to Whatsapp me a photograph of the exercise and reply with a useful hint in order to get them started.
I am a teacher who re-entered higher education in 2014 to study physics. I have passed the module required to teach physics at GCSE and A Level. My end of year results to date are all distinctions (1st equivalence) with the exception of one grade two pass (2:1 equivalence). I am confident teaching the natural science, as well as calculus, algebra, trigonometry, vectors, complex numbers and arithmetic.
For the past four years I have worked as a supply teacher, offering support in schools within the London and Surrey area.
I am a flexible, approachable individual with a good understanding of the benefits of formative assessment, and am practised in tailoring my teaching techniques to suit the needs of my students.
My rates vary depending on the distance of travel and the level of the student (KS3, 4 or 5).
