Who am I?
Hi, I'm Pav. I'm currently a physics student at Durham University and there is very little I enjoy more than teaching. I have a fasincation for the sciences and in my tutorials I hope to be able to get you not only interested but also understanding what you learn.
I have been mentoring students younger than myself for four years at secondary school so I have garnered a lot of experience. I have also been a STEM Ambassador for the past two years which I enjoyed a role as after-school club helper.
What will the sessions be like?
The sessions will be based around what YOU want. For me there is one simple task, understanding, whether this be through past papers, revision, learning from first principles etc.
I will use a variety of methods to convey key concepts, this may include resources outside of the session which you will find highly beneficial. 55 minutes is a long time to be learning therefore I will try to always break down the session into two parts, introduction to concepts and then being questioned to see if you have understood it. Remember, there is nothing wrong with not being able to understand things straight away, the more questions the better.
What if I'm really struggling with a concept?
We will leave it and come back to it. I want to maximise the amount you get from the tutorials and it is often better to revisit an idea in the next tutorial or later in the same tutorial after you have had some time to think about other ideas. In each session I will try to include some reflection time from past tutorials if you so wish.
What to do next?
If you have any questions at all, please send me an 'Webmail' or complete a booking for a 'Meet the Tutor Session' which are both accessed on this webpage. Please jot down subjects, what you are stuggling with and your exam board if you send me a Webmail.
Hope to hear from you soon!

The demand and supply diagram is based on two viewpoints. The demand line is based on the point of view of the consumer, the higher the price of an item, the less they will want to pay, hence the downward sloping curve. The supply line is based on the point of view of the supplier, therefore the higher the price of an item, the more they will want to get in the market and sell, hence the upward sloping curve. Where the two lines cross on the same diagram is the price of the amount and the quantity that is supplied / demanded.see more
A complex number is a number that consists of two parts, a real part, like any number you have been dealing with since you started learning maths, and an imaginary number, often tagged along with a i or a j, for example a+bi. The best way to imagine it is as a vector on a plane, the point not unlike one on a x,y axes but instead on a real, imaginary axes.see more
As often described, a vector is a quantity that has a magnitude and a direction, whereas a scalar just has a magnitude. The easiest way to thing about it is to physically think if you could point in a direction, for example, you cannot point to how much energy was used or which way time flowed but you can point in the direction of your speed, hence becoming a velocity.see more
