Information about John
I am a professional scientist. After an undergraduate degree (First Class) in Physics and Philosophy, I did a PhD in Physics and have worked in academic research for ~5 years. I am a natural communicator, personable and well-rounded, and am experienced in explaining complex things in a simple way to all kinds of people.
I am experienced in online tutoring, and have a fast internet connection perfect for providing this service.
Availability: Contact to discuss.
Willing to travel: 50 miles
Experience: Specialist subjects:
I have taught extensively at university level and below. In addition, I have a track record of public engagement, education and communication with young people and with the general public. Throughout this experience I have learned to tailor my explanations to any level of understanding.
So, whether it`s A levels/early undergrad, GCSEs, primary school, or a mature student looking for a broader scope of understanding, I can help. For example:
narrow focus - training toward a specific exam or revising a particular topic or method
broad focus - general methods and concepts that will help throughout the subject, e.g., how to use and understand units and dimensions in Physics

Feedback For John (3)
Dr John has been great for our 17 year old son doing physics A level. He is finding the transition from GCSE to A level quite challenging and John is helping with clear down to earth explanations, giving him an invaluable forum for exploring concepts he has had trouble understanding in class.
I am doing a Physics degree via distance learning. John has been fantastic at helping me grasp some of the material I`ve been struggling with. He really knows his field and is very patient. I would definitely recommend him!
Tutors Response :
Thanks so much!
John was brilliant with my 17yo son. We needed him for some mock A level maths revision at very short notice. He was incredibly accommodating, quick to respond, and really helped my son in the few days before his exam. John was, very patient, knows his subject very well, and was very useful in helping my son work through some problems. We will definitely use him again if we need someone in the run up to the final exams.
