I have recently completed my PhD in theoretical physics. I achieved A*s across the board at GCSE, including Maths and Physics, and As in Maths and Physics A-levels, before attending UCL to study Natural Sciences, where I achieved a first-class honours degree. During my PhD I received the Dean`s Award, the award for best PhD in the astrophysics group and an award recognising my undergraduate teaching.
I am a friendly and approachable tutor who strongly believes tutoring is most effective when the student is guided to the right answer but is not spoon-fed. As such I am encouraging and helpful but always aim for students to push themselves to figure out the correct answer themselves.
My PhD research was in theoretical cosmology, and I have 7 published papers. I regularly give talks on my research and have been an invited seminar speaker twice. I was part of the Physics outreach team at Lancaster University and enjoyed introducing participants from local schools to aspects of physics outside of their school curriculum. I strongly believe physics should be accessible to all and take every opportunity to develop my skills at disseminating my research to non-specialist audiences.
Availability: I am very flexible and willing to teach at whatever times are convenient for students and their parents.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have been tutoring for over a year now, with students ranging from the 11+ through to A-level, in Maths, Physics and Chemistry. I can provide more testimonials on request. I have done a large amount of undergraduate teaching, both practical laboratory sessions and theoretical seminars and workshops. Last year I was rewarded with the Lancaster Post-Graduate Teaching Award, Prize for Excellence.Contact this Tutor
I have complementary experience from teaching the piano, which has allowed me to develop a different set of teaching skills and an appreciation of how different students learn in different ways.
I have a full DBS check.
