About Alistair

I am an experienced tutor who focuses on teaching physics so I well understand the issues and concerns that students can have with this subject.

Availability: Daytimes and evenings

Willing to travel: 15 miles

Tutoring Experience:

I have been tutoring physics off and on for many years, in fact it was my first paid employment in the seventies when I was still at school! I considered a teaching career but instead entered the telecommunications industry where I held roles which ranged from technical development through to corporate strategy. 

During my career I have also been a visiting lecturer to both Aston University and Coventry University. I took early retirement in 2011 and have been focused on delivering physics tuition since then. My hobby is aviation and I also work as a flying instructor. This means that I am well used to providing one-to-one teaching to students with a range of abilities, furthermore I have been trained to teach in a difficult environment - an aircraft. 

I am a patient and understanding teacher with experience of teaching a wide cross-section of pupils and am familiar with many of the common stumbling blocks pupils encounter when studying physics in particular. I only tutor physics so I understand the issues that students can have with this subject. 

As a result I am familiar with the different specifications and have built up a large library of teaching material and worksheets. Wherever possible I try to use the experiences that I have gained during my career to provide real life examples and case studies and most importantly to demonstrate that physics is fun!
