About me

I have tutored Geography and Maths for 3 years at both GCSE and A-level standard, of all different abilities. I'm currently reading Geography at the University of Nottingham and it is a desire of mine to eventually become a teacher of the subject due to my immense interest in the area. I specialise mainly in the physical, scientific areas of the subject however I have achieved highly in and taught human geography before. I studied Maths and Further Maths at A-Level, giving me a strong knowledge of the subject for tutoring at GCSE level. 


Geography has been key to satisfying my cravings for knowledge about the world and the reasons for things happening. Snowboarding in the Swiss Alps gave me a fascination for how the process of orogeny worked and the ongoing processes occurring on such a scale; the study of tectonics, climate and glaciation soon became favourites of mine as they answered my queries. Physical geography is a broad and stimulating subject, it allows for very definite answers to why things happen on earth which is something I constantly yearn for.


I hope to translate my love for the subject across to my students so they can appreciate how exciting and interesting it is, this will hopefully drive them to go the extra mile and really push for the best grades.

About my sessions

My teaching style is unique; I like to represent complicated topics in more simplistic ideas to allow for core understanding, making higher learning much more straight forward. I believe a main focus of learning is to build a solid foundation of knowledge, I make sure all students have a very consolidated base of the simpler aspects of a topic as this will make learning the harder concepts far less demanding.


When it comes to maths lessons, I'm very hands on when it comes to showing and explaining concepts and I'm very adaptable when it comes to my students needs. Practice makes perfect and I believe that having just gone through the new syllabus for A-level, I will be the best placed to cater for the new courses.


In terms of the structure of your learning each session, I will begin by finding out any particular weak areas you may be struggling with. I will then support your learning before setting you a couple of tasks. At the end of each session we will have a recap of the topic covered and we will assess from there whether more time is needed in that area. I will try my best to set you some work between sessions to keep your mind stimulated and this will be my way of ensuring you are on the right track.

It's great to work with Dan. He was really responsive when I first enquired. My son has enjoyed his first lesson. Thank you.

Questions Daniel has answered

What processes occur at a convergent plate boundary?

There are 3 types of plate boundary; convergent (destructive), divergent (constructive) and transform (conservative). At a convergent plate boundary, tectonic plates move together. The denser plate will then subduct the less dense crust. The most common case of this is where an oceanic plate meets and will subduct continental crust due to the density difference. The place in which the subduction occurs is known as the Benioff zone, this is where earthquakes are likely to form. Once the oceanic plate has sub-ducted, it begins to melt in the magma mantle. This can cause magma chambers to form underneath the continental crust, which may lead to volcanism. The air pocket left by the melted plate becomes a vacuum which in turn sucks the oceanic plate further into the mantle, presenting a tectonic movement theory known as slab pull. Another scenario which occurs at a convergent plate boundary is where plates of the same density collide such as similar continental crust. In this case, these areas are very prone to earthquakes due to the massive friction and pressure. Instead of full subduction, you may get partial subduction which will cause faulting in the landscape. It can also cause folding which is where barely any subduction occurs and the plates just compress together causing large ridges to form in large up and down patterns called synclines and anticlines. This is one of the forms of orogeny (mountain building).There are 3 types of plate boundary; convergent (destructive), divergent (constructive) and transform (conservative).
