I'm a Physics graduate with a first class honours and years of experience teaching advanced scientific concepts in simplified ways to primary school pupils and I've also tutored Maths and Physics to high school and university students with a 100% success rate of them achieving their desired grade.

How would you describe your teaching style?

I think that the main difficulties people have with learning Maths and Physics is that the concepts can feel very detached from reality and as such, impossible to imagine. A concrete physical example can go very far towards making a tricky concept easy to understand. I have explained quantum mechanics and nuclear reactors to 12 year olds, everything can be understood on some level. Learning science is about re-afirming the level of knowledge you already have, then understanding the level above.

What qualifications do you have?

I have a first-class honours Bachelors degree in Physics

Tell us about your experience...

Having just finished my Physics degree which including a lot of very advanced mathematics, I'm very fresh with knowledge and a keenness to teach. I have always enjoyed teaching others, for years now I have visited my old primary school to give about 10 to 15 different entertaining lessons on aspects of advanced science, in a fun, understandable and engaging way. The kids, teachers, and I all have really enjoyed those experiences and look forward to when they happen again. As far as tutoring goes, I have tutored 2 students, 1 in physics and 1 in maths, both of whom achieved their desired grade. I also have a wide and deep understanding of statistics and chemistry, since they were 2 of the 4 advanced higher sciences I took in my final year of high school.

What locations do you tutor in?

I tutor in the location of Perthshire. I am free to travel to any desired location or alternatively, to host lessons in my house or virtually.

What is your personal message to students?

The hardest thing about Physics or Maths is having a bad teacher.
