I have recently graduated from Durham University with a 1st class Physics Master’s degree and will soon be pursuing a PhD programme working at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. In the meantime, I am offering tutoring services to students looking for help with Mathematics and Physics. As a recent graduate, I have direct experience with preparing for Physics and Mathematics examinations. I understand the concepts students tend to struggle with the most and have developed my own methods for answering some of the most challenging questions. Students will develop fundamental problem-solving skills which will help them as they progress as competent Physicist/Mathematicians. These skills are particularly desired to by the top UK universities.

How would you describe your teaching style?

Throughout my experience in academia, I have found that students tend to learn the most by solving as many questions as possible. Once they have learned the core problem-solving skills, I will construct various problems which are similar to the ones they might face in examinations and interviews. From there, I plan to assess where they excel the most and develop their weaknesses so they become a well-rounded Physicist/Mathematician.

What qualifications do you have?

1st Class MPhys (Master of Physics) degree with honours from Durham University. A-Levels: Further Mathematics - A*, Mathematics - A*, Physics - A*. Future PhD student working at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.

Tell us about your experience...

My master's research thesis was focussed on particle models for dark matter. Experience in theoretical and experimental Physics specialising in particle theory. I also have industrial experience working at BAE Systems as an Engineering Intern. I was part of the team who worked on the Typhoon aircraft, reviewing future technologies and upgrades.

What locations do you tutor in?

I tutor in Bolton or surrounding areas.

What is your personal message to students?

As a recent graduate, I fully understand the problems students tend to encounter when preparing for exams. I am also state school educated and have first hand experience in trying to progress from A-Levels into a top UK university.
