Personal Message
I am an Oxford graduate and former research scientist with five years of tutoring experience.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach mathematics and physics up to KS5.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I hold an undergraduate masters degree in physics from the University of Oxford and a PhD in theoretical particle physics from the University of Southampton.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have five years' experience working as a private tutor, mostly teaching mathematics and physics from KS3 up to A-level, and three years' experience working as a part-time demonstrator, teaching physics to undergraduates. I have also demonstrated at public outreach events.

As well as this teaching experience I also have seven years' experience working in particle physics research—as a graduate student at the University of Southampton and then as a postdoctoral fellow at Indiana University.
How much do you charge?
I charge £30 per hour for KS5, £25 per hour for KS4, and £20 per hour for KS3/2, plus £5 per session to go towards travel expenses.

I travel to students' homes across London, approximately Zones 1–4.
When are you available?
I am generally available weekday afternoons and evenings.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I mostly teach students from KS3 to A-level, but I also teach mathematics to KS2 children and physics and mathematics to adult and casual learners.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I prepare students for A-level and GCSE mathematics and physics examinations as well as IGCSE, IB, and BMAT.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have an enhanced DBS certificate and am registered with the DBS update service.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I am flexible in my approach and adapt to the needs and desires of each individual client or student in terms of how I tutor and how I structure sessions. I am patient and friendly as well as encouraging and enthusiastic. I have an excellent knowledge of my subjects and a clear understanding that allows me to communicate ideas effectively. I am skilled at tracing back to the sources confusion, which is important for subjects like mathematics and physics where new topics usually build upon and require a good understanding of previous ones. I try to make to make the subjects I teach interesting with insights into how everything relates together and what the implications and applications are as well as explaining different ways to think about problems. I aim to leave students with a clear understanding of the material, a justified belief in their own abilities, and an enjoyment and appreciation of the subject.
