About me

I am currently a student at the University of Edinburgh, doing my 5th year of the MPhys Theoretical Physics programme. I've managed to score an average grade of 81% in year 3, and 72% in year 4 and I tend to consistently do well in my exams, which I believe comes down to 10% intelligence and 90% hard work.

I've also done well in my GCSEs (A*A* Science double award, A* extended maths, A* additional maths) and IBs (7 Physics HL, 7 Maths HL, 40 total), again attributable to hard work and a solid understanding of exam technique, skills that I do my best to transfer to my students.

Figures aside, I am fun to work with and I will try to make a concept understandable in whatever way I can think of.

About my sessions

We will spend about 30% of the session trying to get an intuition for the concepts in question, which is in the format of a discussion where I will be trying to convince you that what you are learning indeed makes sense. The other 70% of the time will be spent on employing those concepts in practice (solving problems).

For Maths and Physics IAs, I can do a written session where I will annotate your work and send it back to you (though I would prefer a free meeting first where you explain what you are trying to achieve first). However, the more beneficial option, in my opinion, is a normal session, as the format of discussion will allow the final work to better reflect your thought process, skills and interests.

Strong IB Math tutor. Very knowledgeable. Jonas was well prepared to help our daughter. He can break down complex topics, add practical insight and point towards new strategies, principles and understandings. Our daughter not only able to better understand the material but also came away more motivated.

Questions Jonas has answered

How do you calculate the probability P(X < x) for a normally distributed random variable X?

If the details of the distribution - its mean and standard deviation are known, the following transformation applies Z = (X - mean) / stdev where Z is now a random variable distributed as normal(0, 1). Now, a lookup table for values of the normal distribution can be used to find the probability you are looking for.
