Degree: MPHYS Theoretical Physics (Masters) - Leeds University
Who am I?
My name is Marcin and I am currently in my fourth year studying Theoretical Physics at the University of Leeds.
I share my energy between two passions which are science and music. Learning about how the physical world works has always intrigued me and I treat my studies of science as a craft that I hope to refine throughout my life and help you along the way!
I tutored GCSE maths whilst in sixth form and have done some form of tutoring since I came to uni. This included tutoring GCSE maths at various schools around leeds and giving piano lessons. I have been playing the piano for 15 years and understand what it's like to move through all ranges of ability whilst starting at absolute zero! I aim to use all of my experience to help you with anything that I can.
Simply put: to help you get the most out of your learning! Too much teaching has been focused on drilling information into you without capturing your interest first. Science is a lot of fun, Maths (believe it or not) can be lot of fun too and Music... well it doesn't even need an explanation!
The sessions will be based around you. I will simply ask questions and prompt you to think about your studies and the learning will be taylored to the way you learn best. By providing you with context, problem solving skills and technical knowledge of the subject, we can iron out any weaknesses and get you feeling more confident after each session.
Ask me anything!
Do not hestitate to get in touch with any question and I am more than happy to chat about any work that you might need help with!

Many pupils struggle when maths questions that are given in a very wordy format. I feel these types of questions can be the most useful in testing mathematical concepts that the pupils have picked up in lessons and developing their problem solving skills.
This is a question which has a few ways of giving you the right answer and it requires some thought.
I will illustrate one possible way of answering the question:
- It takes Alice 15 minutes to walk 2km to meet Bob. Using this information and converting the units to seconds and meters, we get that she walks at a pace of 2.2m/s (1dp)
- When she picks up Bob, they both have to walk 1km to get to school. Since we know their walking speed is 2.2m/s we find that it takes 1000/2.2 = 454.5s to get to school.
- Converting 454.5 seconds to minutes gives us 7.6 minutes
- Since they only have 5 minutes to get to School from Bobs house and it takes them 7.6 minutes then they do not get to school on time.
- They are late by 2.6 minutessee more
