Information about Lewis
Having graduated with a First Class Masters Degree in Mathematics and Physics, I know that there is nothing more rewarding than achieving good results. Consequently, I find great enjoyment in helping people to learn and succeed.
I am very enthusiastic about Mathematics and Physics, loving every problem that I ever solved! I also enjoy playing musical instruments, and love driving.
Availability: Currently I am available almost always.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: Teaching assistant to first year Mathematics students for the Computational Mathematics course, teaching numerical methods and coding in Matlab, as well as answering general questions about other units that the students were taking. Helping the students to both improve their skills and also pass their exams on the subject.
I have also spent time as an undergraduate tour guide, showing prospective students around the physics department at Bristol university. Talking to them, the general concern that they hold (and indeed many physicist from my year still do) is that the level of maths required to do degree level physics can be quite a shock. It is important for prospective physics students to be comfortable with A level Mathematics (C1-4, M1, S1), with M2,3 and FP1,2 being very helpful.
Whilst unofficial, I have helped individuals throughout my time at school and university, with one guy attributing his A* GCSE to the help that I gave him during maths lessons at the time.
I have also taken a Cambridge Step paper and so know how much of a difference there is between the levee of questions on those papers compared to the A Level standard examinations.
