Physics Tutors in Nottingham and Physics Tutoring in Nottingham
I am a consultant engineer working on the design and manufacture of research and development test rigs. I have a first class degree in mechanical engineering from Loughborough University and i have experience running STEM activities for groups of 20-30 secondary school students. I am offering GCSE/A-Level Tutoring in Maths and Physics. As I have achieved both academic achievement and practical experience in these subjects I can easily integrate real world applications of the topics being studied which I find helps students to fully understand, and remember, the subject matter. During my professional career I have also mentored groups of students who are carrying out extra-curricular industry led STEM projects. I am also a fully qualified SCUBA diving instructor regularly running courses at Loughborough University and have also worked as an instructor abroad teaching a large range of age groups.
Hi, I'm Dr Chris King - I'm an experienced, friendly maths and physics tutor who has been supporting students online and in person for two decades, with a focus on patience and excellence. I have a strong record of improving people's GCSE and A-Level exam and coursework performance across all main exam boards, as well as helping undergraduate students and adult learners. Not only that, but my tutees tend to find genuine enjoyment in subjects that they might previously have disliked. My effective online tutoring system uses interactive whiteboards and screensharing. My background is a masters degree (2004) and PhD (2008) in physics from the University of Nottingham. Having worked in a north-west engineering company for a few years, I am now back in the East Midlands where I am a Technical Team Lead at Rolls-Royce. I enjoy providing tuition in my spare time, helping people to grow in confidence and ability. I limit my intake to a small number of tutees at a time so that I don't spread myself thinly. Tuition uses a different skillset to my day job so I bring a fresh, energetic approach to my sessions. You get my full attention and support when I am tutoring you. When I'm not working and tutoring I love scuba diving, cycling and hillwalking.

I am a recent honours graduate in physics from the Royal Holloway, University of London; I am currently working in Nottingham until I begin my Master's in physics at the University of Nottingham later this year. I have tutored maths and physics for the past 3 years for a variety of ages and backgrounds, as well as working in school teaching assistant roles and additionally running physics outreach workshops in schools. Before I began my degree I self-taught my A-levels in maths and physics; this gave me an excellent understanding of the challenges presented by these topics and how best to teach them. I also became competent at marking my own test papers and I am very familiar with the A-level syllabus for maths and physics. My tutoring ethos focuses on building the firm foundations needed to equip students to study independently with confidence. As they transition into more advanced stages of their educational career, the ability to work independently of teachers or lecturers becomes increasingly important for students; I believe helping them achieve this is the most economical use of tutoring time.
