About me

About Me:

I am a Physics student at Durham University. My passion is physics, and by association maths, I will aim to instil a similar passion in students during my tutorials.

I am a highly patient and approachable individual.  I have been coaching fencing since I was 17. This has given me a fair amount of teaching experience with both young and old people alike. It has also taught me the importance of using multiple techniques.

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. This will be prioritised over completing exam questions. This is due to the nature of science where understanding is the most important detail.

I will use any and all methods at my disposal (including diagrams, analogies and practical examples) to explain a concept. I will do this until a tutee is confident enough to use the knowledge they have been taught.

I aim to make the sessions highly engaging and enjoyable. This is so that science can be seen for what it is - fun! 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 bored the topic is from!

I hope to see you soon!

Hello Jonathan thanks for the last session Charlotte said it was good and you had prepared well although a large portion of the explanation was about deriving a formula, Maybe my mistake as I mentioned she needed more understanding of the formula. I think next time if you could spend less time on the derivation of formulas and explain more about the topic and background I think this way when she gets a question she can then use her knowledge of the topic to answer the question correctly, which I feel has been her problem in the past of not understanding actually what the topic is about. Thanks again for your support Kind regards Richard

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 ...

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.
