About me

What I like the most about my degree is to be able to understand the physics behind everyday life and some big questions of the universe. Throughout my university years, I have developed advanced problem solving and analytical skills. I focused on theoretical physics, which has a deeper mathematical and computational content. Furthermore, I am from Spain with native level of Spanish and sound knowledge about its literature and grammar. This allows me to impart any type of lessons, including c...

What I like the most about my degree is to be able to understand the physics behind everyday life and some big questions of the universe. Throughout my university years, I have developed advanced problem solving and analytical skills. I focused on theoretical physics, which has a deeper mathematical and computational content. Furthermore, I am from Spain with native level of Spanish and sound knowledge about its literature and grammar. This allows me to impart any type of lessons, including conversational.


My experience in tutoring started when I was 16 in Madrid, where I tutored various kids (ages 9 to 14). Also, I have a younger brother to whom I have been helping since he started high school. These experiences have taught me to be committed to the people I tutor and to appreciate every progress they make.


When I am not crunching the numbers, I enjoy reading classic literature and philosophy or playing sports such as basketball and tennis. Also, since I moved to university, I like cooking (and eating) all type of cuisines, especially Indian.

About my sessions

In my experience, individual lessons allow the student to focus more in the concepts behind the subjects instead of just solving problems and handing homework. Particularly in maths and physics, this applies to numerical abstraction, which is a fundamental factor to the proper understanding of each topic.

 

In my lessons, I will make sure the key concepts are assimilated, and I will offer alternative explanations to those ideas that might be harder to process at high school level....

In my experience, individual lessons allow the student to focus more in the concepts behind the subjects instead of just solving problems and handing homework. Particularly in maths and physics, this applies to numerical abstraction, which is a fundamental factor to the proper understanding of each topic.

 

In my lessons, I will make sure the key concepts are assimilated, and I will offer alternative explanations to those ideas that might be harder to process at high school level. Thus, the student will be able to apply them correctly in the practical problem-solving activities presented during the lessons. I will also provide them with additional material to work on their own, so they can expand their knowledge on the topics learned.

 

The classes will be interactive so that the student gets involved in the process of explaining, which I believe is the best way to engage with the contents. The lessons will be a mix between concept illustration and problem resolution, reviewing past papers and mock exams when the examination period approaches. However, other teaching methods can be explored according to the needs of the student.
