I am a Cambridge graduate in Physics with a Doctorate in Physics. I am familiar with the GCSE and A-level exam specifications in Maths and Science. I know that the GCSE Science curriculum is packed and there can be insufficient school time available for students to fully understand and get to grips with the concepts of Science. I help students to understand the key concepts of Science and then guide students to practise applying them to solve problems. I start by assessing students’ schoolwork, homework and school tests to identify key areas to work on to improve performance and bolster confidence, self-esteem and promote resilience. My approach supports students in developing thinking skills and problem-solving which is an important part of succeeding in both Maths and Science. I also teach revision and exam techniques, where the understanding of concepts helps to make revision more effective. I am also available in the lead-up to exam time when extra support is needed for exam practise.

I am a qualified teacher (PGCE) whose teaching experience includes having taught in a top grammar school in Bucks. Students whom I have worked with include: • Students previously obtaining below grade C needing to pass Science and Maths. • A-C grade students needing maximum grades at GCSE. • Students working for maximum grades at A-level for university entry. • Higher ability students needing to be challenged so they remain engaged in their learning to reach their full potential. I have experience of tutoring for Oxbridge entrance exams and university interview preparation which I can also offer.
