About me

About Me: I am a Physics student at Durham University. I am now in my third year. I really enjoy finding out how the world works, all its details and intricacies. As such Physics is exactly my thing! I will always try to convey my passion of the subject to my students and I hope to inspire them as I tutor them. I also really enjoy teaching people, especially the challenging subjects since the rewards are all the greater for it. I have also been coaching fencing since I was 17 so I am used to teaching a wide variety of ages. This also showed me the importance of using many ways to explain a concept to someone, just in case one method is unclear.

About my sessions

The Sessions: During the sessions the primary aim will be to teach understanding. This will be driven by the tutee in the areas for which they are least confident. I will create questions on the topic which are designed to show the inner workings of a particular matter. This will teach both the understanding required to answer the questions and the mechanical ability to get the answers consistently correct. To do this I will use any and all methods I have available to me. These include, but are not limited to, diagrams, analogies, examples and conceptual questions. My aim is to make the sessions engaging and fun! I will hopefully show my tutees just how satisfying science can be.

The 55 minute sessions will provide an ample opportunity for this to be done. What next? If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (Both accessible through this website). I will however need to know both what you’re struggling with and which exam board the topic is from! I hope to see you soon!

Questions Jonathan has answered

When red light is shone on a metal, regardless of the intensity of this light, no current will flow. However if blue light is shone on this metal a current will flow. Why does this occur?

This problem can be solved by first considering the energy of a photon e = hf. ​A photon of red light lacks the sufficient energy to free an electron. However a photon of blue light has a higher frequency and thus has a higher energy. This allows for a photon of blue light to free an electron and thus allow for a current to flow when a large number of photons are sent towards the metal.
