Information about Daniel
Hi, my name is Daniel and I`m a Physics, Maths and Science tutor.
I`ve garnered considerable positive feedback for my warm teaching style - I`m friendly and enjoy what I do. This has gone down well with my students. My academic research and teaching background provides my students access to an educational perspective with a very unusual breadth of scope: I teach little ones times tables and how to add up fractions, rooms of KS3 pupils practical science and critical thinking, prepare stressed KS4 pupils for their GCSEs and motivated sixth-form students for A-Levels and university entrance assessments.
Physics up to and including postgraduate-level courses (KS3, GCSE, A-Level and above). See below on degree and PG topics for which I provide support.
KS3, GCSE and A-Level Mathematics (also can teach/support undergraduate maths in science & engineering).
KS3 & GCSE Science (Combined, triple or single).
I provide specific support with:
Helping students with borderline grades obtain secure passes in maths and science.
Helping Dyslexic, SEN and Neurodiverse students.
Supporting students in obtaining top grades (8+/A+) for college and university offers, including subject specific preparation for STEP/PAT, GAMSAT and other entrance examinations.
Addressing issues with maths anxiety and learned helplessness in maths.
Working with home-schooled, and other students with a non-standard educational background.
Undergraduate study skills and help with subject/exam preparation.
Final year and postgraduate research project support.
Topics in a BSc/MPhys course modules that I tutor (please note that I am unable to provide past-paper question solutions):
Foundation year/First year: any module (including mathematics for first-year physics and engineering and any astronomy/astrophysics modules at level 3/4).
Second year: classical mechanics up to L=T-V and PoLA, vibrations and waves, thermodynamics/thermal physics, materials, condensed matter physics, electricity and magnetism up to Maxwell`s eqns, introductory quantum mechanics, special relativity, mathematics for second-year physics and engineering.
Third year: quantum mechanics, solid-state and condensed matter/materials, crystallography and neutron scattering. Linear algebra.
For postgraduate support, I feel confident providing advice and learning support for Level 7/ Masters in topics directly related to my main research interests:
neutron spectroscopy, nuclear materials, computational chemistry, data simulation, fitting and visualisation.
Availability: I teach in one or two hour blocks and will travel to you, meet you in a mutually convenient location or run the lesson remotely using software of your choice.
** During the CoVid sitution, I will be tutoring remotely. **
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: I hold a current Enhanced DBS certificate.
I am a qualified teacher and hold Qualified Teacher Status (Good) and PGCE as a Physics specialist.
I`ve had experience teaching KS3-5 in maths and science, including A-Level Physics, Maths and Further Maths.
I`ve taught undergraduate and postgraduate courses in physics, supervised several final year and Masters project students.

Feedback For Daniel (3)
really really knowledgeable guy and very helpful, would highly reccomend
Daniel has really helped Ben develop a deeper understanding of Physics in preparation for his A-level and Ben is feeling much more confident now
Tutors Response :
Ben has worked hard, remained focused on the fundamental physical principles used again and again at A-Level and has been a pleasure to work with. Very pleased with his progress!
My son is very happy with Daniel and feels it is making a difference in only a few weeks.
