Having achieved three A grades at A level in Maths, Physics and Chemistry, I read Physics at University of Bristol. I graduated top of my year with a first class degree. I then undertook research on superconductivity as part of a PhD, also at the University of Bristol. Having taught undergraduate laboratory skills at the University of Bristol, I turned my attention to teaching full time.
After completing a PGCE at Imperial College in London and teaching Physics at an independent school in Bristol, in 2013 I became Head of Physics at an independent school in Bath. In 2018 I moved to Poole, Dorset and now teach at a grammar school. I am an expert examiner and team leader for GCSE/A level Physics for the exam board Pearson/Edexcel and I am principal examiner for an A level paper. I am an experiences tutor and also teach on the Easter revision course at an independent school in Bristol.
Physics and Maths Tutoring
I tutor pupils of secondary school age (11-18 years / school years 7-13) in all aspects of Maths and Physics.
I currently teach AQA iGCSE Physics and OCR A Level Physics. However I am familiar with the content of all courses including the new A Levels from 2017.
Oxford PAT Tutoring
In addition to the model answers I provide for the Oxford PAT, I offer tutoring to help prepare students for this test. I can fill in any gaps in knowledge as well as provide help and guidance on the style of questions and go through the past papers. In the past I have offered this to a number of international pupils and those around the UK online via Skype and an online whiteboard.
I am currently only offering tutoring via Skype and in the Poole area.
I am fully DBS checked (the new name for CRB).
I charge £30 per hour.
Unlike some other tutors or tutoring agencies I do not arrange a fixed number of sessions which you have to pay for upfront or in advance. The number and length of sessions can be arranged to suit and paid for individually.
