Information about Jack

Hi, I`m Jack, I’m an Oxford graduate (first class masters (MPhys) in Sept 2018) with lots of experience tutoring . I studied Physics, Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and an Extended Project at A-level achieving top marks across the board as well as passing the Physics Aptitude Test and the Oxford admissions interviews. That`s not to say that I found all of that easy or stress free (believe me I didn’t!) so I’d like to pass on my knowledge to students so that I can help them understand the subject, feel confident going into exams and ultimately achieve the grades they deserve.
Of course I’m a massive nerd (you’ve got to be if you want to study physics for 4 years) but I appreciate that not everyone is. If physics really isn’t your thing and you just want to get the grades then don’t worry. I’m the guy for you. I can give an abridged this-is-everything-you-need-to-know- guide to Physics and Maths at GCSE or A-level that’ll help you pass the exam. I’ve also got great tips on revision and exam technique (how to set out work, maximise time in the exam etc.).
If, however, you’re interested in physics and maths like me and are looking to study further or maybe even make a mark on the scientific world yourself, I can give a broader, more in depth approach to the subject that won’t just get you acing the exam, it’ll help you write a killer personal statement, answer technical questions in interview and generally get you thinking the right way about physics and maths.

My approach to teaching is very informal. I don’t really believe in lecturing students but rather having a chat about what it all really means. I like to encourage my students to ask me lots of questions and in return I ask a lot of questions but there are no silly answers or obvious questions. I go slowly and start from the absolute basics so if there’s anything that’s unclear we’ll sort it out. Equally though, if a student knows what they’re talking about this becomes apparent very quickly and I’m not going to waste anyone’s time teaching things that are already well understood.
I like to go through questions mostly from past papers or course books that are written by the exam board. Once I’ve gone through a question I usually like to test whether the student has really got it by tweaking the question or asking something related but slightly different (nobody’s in going to trick me into doing their homework for them).
When I first meet with a student I like to make a list of key areas that they’re finding particularly challenging then I can write a plan of how we’d go about fixing any issues they’re having. It’s no use teaching someone rocket science without them first knowing Newton’s laws.
I am familiar with OCR, OCR MEI and Edexcel courses in A-level maths and physics and I did the Edexcel IGCSE course in maths and the sciences. However, I am confident that I could teach any Maths or Physics GCSE or A-level syllabus.

Availability: I am available every weekday in the evening and at any time over the weekend.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: I tutor online for [contact detail removed], [contact detail removed] and [contact detail removed] and in person for [contact detail removed], [contact detail removed] & [contact detail removed], [contact detail removed] and [contact detail removed] in London.I also teach classes of A level Maths in a day at Imperial College for [contact detail removed] and write A level notes for this site also as their resource development manager.
For years now I`ve been tutoring family members and friends in physics, maths and science more generally.
I have taught younger students in school as part of mentoring program.

Jack is very knowledgable, has a pleasant manner and arrives on time.
We’ve only had about five tutorials but at parents evening last week we were told that Jess’ work had improved.
So thanks very much, Jack.
