About me

I am studying Natural Sciences at Cambridge, and have been tutoring for 5 years now. I focus on understanding, and finding explanations that work for you. I initially studied Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science and Maths am now specialising in Physics, having achieved all firsts so far, so I have studied all the subjects I teach beyond A-Level.  I am very enthusiastic about Science, and I think everyone should have the opportunity to understand the world around them; I really enjoy being able to help others understand these subjects. I also have previous experience in providing short term, more intensive tutoring during holiday periods.

About my sessions

I think it’s important that ultimately the parents and students have control over what they want to focus on, and am happy to follow with any plans you may have.  That said, many people will not know where they want to start, and are here looking for guidance. I firmly believe understanding is key to everything, and I will begin with helping you to understand the material, by trying to help you work things out for yourself, and most importantly finding an explanation that works for you. I will question you on what we have covered to reinforce, and build your confidence in your understanding. Following from this, we will tackle past paper questions, going through your answers and the mark schemes to find ways to improve, and working on exam technique.

I gave Konrad a very tough spec, and he soldiered on marvellously!

Questions Konrad has answered

How does electromagnetic induction produce a current?

When a wire moves through a magnetic field the wire cuts through the magnetic field lines. This cutting through gives a force on the electrons in the wire, pushing them along, and these moving electrons are the current in the wire. The faster the wire moves, or the stronger the field, the more the electrons are pushed and the greater the current.

How does stimulated emission work?

Stimulated emission occurs under the specific circumstances of a population inversion, that is, when there are more electrons in a higher energy level than one below it. There will be a certain energy difference between these two energy levels.

When a photon with energy equal to the gap passes, it stimulates an electron to drop down to the lower energy level, emitting the energy it lost as a photon with the same wavelength, phase and direction (coherent with) the starting photon.

This differs from an electron spontaneously dropping down an energy level in that the photon is not emitted randomly. If this occurs many times, as in a laser, intense, coherent and monochromatic (one wavelength) is produced.
