About me

My name is Giada and I am in my first year of studying Physics at the University of Bristol. I really enjoy the the breadth of study of the course as I get to study Physics, Maths and Astrophysics and I also enjoy reading into the more philosophical aspects of Physics. Astrophysics has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember and I never fail to be amazed at how humans, who seem so small and insignificant in comparison to the rest of the universe, can understand its most complex workings and I hope to one day be someone who understands these things too.


I have experience as a tutor as I have volunteered as a tutor for children who were struggling in school, free of charge since I find it incredibly rewarding to see the development of a student and the progress they make. Also, having done my A Levels a matter of months ago I still have the content fresh in my mind as well as popular exam questions and where to find them; as well as a lot of study skill advice to offer.

About my sessions

I have a lot of sympathy for both parents and children currently going through burden of GCSE’s and A Levels, (I can assure you that it does get better at university), since a lot of subjects require rote memorisation which isn’t fun for anyone, even though it does work sometimes. I’ve noticed a lot of students struggle when trying to apply this technique to Physics and Maths because these subjects are more conceptually based. I’ve found that it is much more time effective to reduce the subjects to a set of basic concepts which you can work to understand and hopefully I can help you to do so.


To help students improve, I think it is important to gauge what the student already knows, identify areas where they have trouble and then set up goals to be achieved, whether it be a short term goal of solving a specific problem or a long term goal of increasing one’s subject grade, I think it’s crucial to have something to work toward.


I think that learning is a process that works very differently for different students and it’s important to cater one’s tutoring style to the student’s learning style. So feel free to message me or meet for a free video meeting as I’d love to help you reach your academic ambitions.

Questions Giada has answered

What would be the rate of change of momentum of the earth as a result of a ball of mass m undergoing freefall?

This question requires a thorough understanding of Newton's Laws. The rate of change of momentum may be given by Newton's Second Law, F=m(v-u)/t, and is therefore equivalent to the resultant force. Also we know that, from Newton's Third Law, every action has an equal and opposite reaction, so the third law pair for the force of the ball on the Earth (third law pairs of forces must be equal and opposite in magnitude and must be a force of the same type), would be the force of the Earth on the ball (diagram needed). The only force acting on the ball would be gravity, and the magnitude of the force may be given by F=GMm/r^2, which would give both the rate of change of momentum of the earth as a result of the ball falling towards the Earth (as required) but also the rate of change of momentum of the ball falling toward the ball (using Newton's Third Law).This question requires a thorough understanding of Newton's Laws.
