About me

Hi there. I'm in the final stages of a PhD at the University of Birmingham, writing corrections to my thesis. I'm still learning!

I love maths and physics - there's so much cool stuff, especially at A Level. I still remember when I first learned about things like calculus and complex numbers in maths, and crazy stuff like wave-particle duality and fission & fusion in physics. There's also some cool stuff at GCSE, like irrational numbers, which keep on going for eeeee...

Hopefully some of my enthisiasm will rub off, as I help you with the concepts and techniques you're struggling with, and help you with exam technique to get the mark you're hoping for.

Don't hesitate to contact me through the website if you have any questions, or book a FREE "meet the tutor" session.

I look forward to meeting you!

About my sessions

These 55 minute slots are all about you. You dictate what you want to cover, whether that's some extra explanation on a topic you're particularly struggling with, tips on improving exam technique, or whatever.

let me know your exam board and the topics you'd like to cover beforehand and i can prepare some relevant material, or you could also come to the session with some particular questions (e.g. past papers) you'd like me to go through with you.

I'm patient,...

I'm patient, and happy to try lots of different ways to explain something if you're really stuck on something. It's always better to try and understand the concepts, then the questions you're being asked make a lot more sense (that's expecially true in physics, where a good understanding means you can sometimes spot a short-cut way of answering the question!) Failing that, there is also the age-old technique of doing lots of questions till you're good at it. Sometimes it is only after doing lots of questions that the penny drops.
