About me

About me

Hi! My name is Jakub and I'm studying Physics and Astronomy at Durham University. I have been interested in sciences for as long as I can remeber and I really enjoy sharing that passion with others, be it through tutoring or a friendly conversation during lunch break. I have gained lots of experience teaching and helping my friends; now I try to incorporate these skills in the online environment.


The content and the structure of the sessions are entirely up to you! I am very flexible and can adjust my teaching to all learning styles. Recently, I have tutored both small and large groups (3-12 people) as well as provided individual lessons, which allowed me to re-evaluate and improve my teaching methods.

I always try to ensure my students really understand the concepts rather than only solve questions correctly. To do this, I provide various analogies and extra materials as well as check with you that you have fully grasped the given ideas, either in a conversation or through my own examples tailored to your needs. I often choose to use additional resources to offer you an alternative perspective on the problems, at the same time keeping track of the syllabus and past exam papers to make sure you get most of the session.

If you're interested...

If you think I'm the right tutor for you, please send me a message or arrange the free 'Meet the Tutor Session'. Please also specify which topics/questions you would like to cover so that I can prepare the necessary materials:)

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Very helpful explanations and careful planning, thank you!

Jakub is a wonderful IB physics tutor. He is very attentive to the particular needs of the student (in this case, me) in the subject. Classes are structured around targeting the student's needs - so physics learning is never "separated" from the exam component - that is, actually answering physics questions. Jakub achieves this by going through with the student real physics exam questions, for instance, so there is a strong element of how to perform in a physics exam. But if lessons were only going through past exam papers, then there would only be some benefit. Jakub carefully selects questions that are necessarily tied to the student's true understanding of the fundamentals of the physics course content. Not only is Jakub good at following and correcting the student's train of thought and working out (very important aspects of undertaking the exam), Jakub is also very knowledgeable and possesses a high degree of understanding such that he is able to make the student understanding how different aspects of the physics course is connected to each other, therefore deepening the student's understanding. Jakub is a very generous and understanding tutor. In the tutorials I have had with him so far, he has given me a lot more confidence leading up to my physics exam. For that, I really appreciate and thank him for the great work and effort he has put into tutoring me, and would definitely recommend him as a tutor .

Alternating current produced by the generator in a nuclear power plant is supplied to the primary coil of a transformer. Explain, with reference to Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction, how a current arises in the secondary coil.

A typical transformer consists of an iron core with two coils wound around it - the primary and the secondary. Any current-carrying wire produces a magnetic field around it, but because the primary coil carries an alternating current, it's going to produce a changing magnetic field. The alternating magnetic flux from the primary coil is going to penetrate the secondary coil.

Now, let's recall the Faraday's Law:

'The magnitude of an induced e.m.f is proportional to the rate of change of flux linkage'.

Since the flux is alternating, its rate of change cannot be zero or even constant - it has to be alternating as well. Therefore, a changing e.m.f is going to produce an AC in the secondary coil (provided it is a part of a closed circuit).
