I can offer personal tutoring via remote learning. My teaching is aligned to the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence. I provide support materials on OneNote and will take you through any part of the Physics curriculum or the general science (S1 - S3) curriculum.
I have a degree in Physics and a masters in Medical Physics, with 20 years experience working with the NHS. I'm making a career-change into teaching physics and science via the PGDE and will be teaching fulltime next year. I will be available from end of May 2021.
