Information about Michael
With over 20 years of experience teaching physics in schools, I have specialized in GCSE and A level tutoring for the last four years. I have always had a keen interest in physics, particularly the frontiers of physics like cosmology and particle physics.By contrast I have practiced martial arts for over 25 years and I have spent over 10 years as an instructor teaching a variety of ages at my own club.I also regularly enjoy walking, body-boarding and sometimes golf.
I can offer tuition in answering exam questions or more general help with the underlying concepts and the mathematical aspects of physics. I like to adapt my approach to individual students depending on their wider interests and the other subjects they study. I sometimes use a simple practical demonstration to help explain an idea in physics.
Availability: I am available weekday evenings/ afternoons.Mornings can be arranged if the student has free time. I also offer online tuition if required.
Willing to travel: 20 miles
Experience: I have been teaching A level physics for over 20 years in state and independent schools gaining experience of different exam boards and the papers they set.I am currently teaching A level physics at a private school in Leicester as well as providing private tuition in tutees homes. I also have a recent CRB certificate.
I have many years of experience teaching physics so I am familiar with all the practicals that students need to understand and carry out at A level.
Feedback For Michael (11)
One to one tuition is really helping my son with his A level studies, Mikes always on time, and gives good explanations which my son is able to relate to.
Excellent tutor, always explaining topics in detail and listens to your requirements.
My son, Joe, and I have been very impressed by Mike. He is a professional, knowledgeable, patient and thoughtful teacher. My son has found the sessions to be really very helpful, well paced and has allowed him to gain confidence and a much more complete understanding of some complex concepts in A level physics. Joe and I can thoroughly recommend this tutor.
Really Good Tutor.
Explains things very well.
Reliable and Punctual.
Michael Is a very helpful with all aspects of A level physics, as I`ve done the new AQA A level, he has been a huge help, as resources have been limited. Going through topics, questions and queries he`s always got the answers. Also tunes into the type of thinking needed to answer questions.
In addition, Michael is a kind gentlemen who is easy going and really east to get along with. Which makes you feel relaxed when he`s working with you.
Overall, I would certainly recommend Michael to potential physics students.
Michael is a genuine and interesting tutor, well prepared and has the ability to inspire
I sit and listen to Jack having his lesson and although my physics knowledge is zero Michael explains everything so well that even I am picking up things.Jack is finding the lesssons really helpful and I don`t think he would be making progress without them.I am really pleased so far so good.I would recommend Michael.
Michael has helped me achieve a high A grade in my A level Physics which has enabled me to get into my first choice of University. He explains the concepts of Physics in a detailed but easy to understand manner. In particular Michael really helped me with my exam technique by practicing exam questions and looking at how to interpret what each question was asking - vital to achieve a high grade. He also helped me to feel confident with my answers and with my general understanding of Physics. He is thorough with checking you understand every area of your syllabus. I have no hesitation in recommending Michael to anyone who wants help with their Physics!
Really helped me understand key physics concepts with a clear explanation as well as helping with exam technique and how to tackle the more difficult questions
My son was very happy with the service provided
Michael is very professional but at the same time approachable. My son found his teaching style very effective and enjoyed the tuition sessions. He uses good examples and situations to help make the work easier and more understandable. (My son is studying for AS levels).
