I enjoy making the abstract notions of maths and physics accessible to all ages and abilities. I’ve noticed that much of current teaching focusses on techniques over understanding of the underlying principles. Although, this might get one ‘through’ an exam there will be many holes in fundamental understanding that will show up again further down the road. I believe, where appropriate, spending time getting to the essence of an individual’s learning mechanics has the potential to really anchor mathematical understanding. This can then really broaden and open up the learning process, making it flow more easily.
I have studied in physics for about 10 years with a B.Sc. (hons) in Physics from the University of Exeter, M.Sc. in Nanotechnology from University College London & M.Res. in Quantum Information Science in Diamond from the University of Bristol.
Alongside private tuition i also work as a teaching assistant at Bristol University Maths Department.
