Personal Message
I have worked as a tutor and mentor throughout my career. I have a passion for supporting individuals to reach their potential.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach both Physics and Maths at all secondary levels up to and including A-Level
Tell me about your qualifications.
As well as a First Class degree in Physics (University College, London), I have Master's degrees in both Electrical Engineering (Electrical Power and Control, Nottingham University) and Nuclear Engineering (Nuclear Reactor Technology, Royal Naval College).
What kind of experience do you have?
I have worked in engineering businesses for my whole career. Initially I started with Rolls-Royce as an engineer, before moving on to business improvement roles in engineering companies. Throughout my career I have maintained my interest in science and engineering, and I have also acted as a mentor/coach both within the companies I have worked, as well as a mentor with the Prince's Trust, and a Non-Executive Director with two local businesses. I have been offered an unconditional offer to start teacher training as a secondary school Physics teacher in September 2018.
How much do you charge?
My charge is a flat £30 per hour. However, I like to have a free initial coffee meeting with all potential clients to explore their requirements and to ensure there is a good rapport between us. I also charge just £15 per hour for the first session as this is used to understand the student's current knowledge level and to put a plan together for future lessons.
Where do you teach?
I am happy to teach at my home, or at the student's home. I am happy to travel up to 10 miles for lessons at no extra charge, and this covers all areas of Derby, Burton, Swadlincote and Long Eaton.
When are you available?
I am available every weekday at all times up to 8pm.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach all secondary age children from KS3 to KS5.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I prepare students for GCSEs and A-levels in Mathematics, and Physics.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Not at present, though I am currently going through the review with another body.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I will use Skype for online tutoring together with equipment to allow for screens to be shared.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
Member of Institute of Engineering and Technology
Chartered Electrical Engineer
