Masters level physics student at Royal Holloway University of London currently tutoring in physics, chemistry, mathematics and further mathematics at GCSE/A-level in Wokingham/Reading area. Through my experience of learning science and mathematics at GCSE, A-level and undergrad I wish to share my enthusiasm for the subject with others and to help them overcome many of the obstacles which I myself encountered during my studies. Whenever possible I try to show students the deeper concepts and intuition behind the material they are taught. Not only will this increase their understanding and appreciation of the subject but will also prove very beneficial in tackling some of the more challenging questions on exams. My maths teacher once told me that “maths is not a spectator sport” and it is this philosophy that I apply to my lessons. Maths and indeed physics and chemistry are not disciplines where you can simply memorise an array of facts or passively read textbooks and expect to excel, they require working through problems and applying your knowledge to truly master. It is for this reason that my lessons are typically focused around going through exam style problems and addressing the student’s weaknesses as we progress.
