As a fun loving physicist, I`ll try to show you the interesting answer to any question, and one that will make you think.
I hold a First Class Master`s degree in Physics and a first class Bachelor`s degree of Science. I was well known in my department, as the person messing around in labs, and still getting great grades. Perhaps I wasn`t always doing what exactly as instructed (and often did quite the opposite), but I was taking the amazing opportunity to really experiment with the equipment, and this experimentation is what makes a scientist.
As science is objective study of the world through observation and experiment, you can`t really understand it fully without knowing how to objectively observe and experiment.
If you learn science with me, there will be homework. I don`t want you spending your time removing foam from your new laptop`s keyboard, or explaining to your parents why the mic doesn`t work and seems to have red goo attached. So experiments will be done in-between lessons, and will hopefully help to cement the ideas that you learn into memory (and if that doesn`t work, at least you`re having fun!).
Experiment has it`s place in mathematics also, but in a different way. With challenges in-between lessons, maths can become not just beautifully simple, but fun!
And for all those interested in programming, or just trying to get the best functionality out of your machine, I offer a free taster session. In this session we will get to know the software, and I`ll also start you on your first hands on task, sending you away with some clear help on how to get started!
My master`s thesis was detecting the Higgs Boson, for which I spent not days, but months on end programming in C and Python. I have now learnt Java and have started on Android App Development. But I can still remember vividly the process of learning, and would love to make it clear and fun for anyone who would like to learn.
Availability: Every day from 5am - 5.30 pm
Willing to travel: 30 miles
Experience: Extensive tutoring experience, and working with children and young adults, such as at summer camps in America.
I have previously tutored ages 8-34, between KS2 and Degree levels. Volunteering with special needs students has given me insight into tools to improve comprehension in even the most difficult circumstances.
Nothing is better than learning from a variety of sources, with methods to suit individual needs. I have collected a wealth of resources, which I share as additional learning resources. These include educational games, puzzles, condensed `cheat sheep`s for last minute revision, and much more!
