About me

Hi!


I'm Dominic and I'm in my first year studying Natural Sciences at Durham University. I love the way I can choose areas from chemistry, physics and maths that I enjoy learning about. The sciences are amazing as they explain the way our world works, and answer questions about everyday things we take for granted.


I believe understanding the basics in Maths, Chemistry, and Physics is the key to succeeding and grasping new, more complicated topics....

I believe understanding the basics in Maths, Chemistry, and Physics is the key to succeeding and grasping new, more complicated topics. This allows you to apply your knowledge of the basic principles to any situation and work through the problem. I learned this through my time in school and it helped me massively when progressing to harder topics and concepts. By making sure you have the key principles of each subject/topic nailed, I can work through the areas you found challenging and help you improve by applying the basics in a way that you comprehend and will be able to practise.


Exams to me are portrayed as these big looming obstacles, but from my experience if you work through questions regularly, really making sure you understand the area and why a certain method is right, you will be able to tackle all the different types of questions they throw at you and apply your knowledge to unknown situations: this is what I will help you do through regular practise, as I have been through it all as well.

About my sessions

I believe the best way to fully learn and understand topics and concepts in the sciences (and anything) is to not just be told the answer when you get it wrong, but to explain your thought process and then be prompted, in order to get to the answer yourself, using your own knowledge. This was, the process of finding/calculating the answer sticks in your mind so much better, and you understand where the answer came from, as you are the one who found it.

This was, the process of finding/calculating the answer sticks in your mind so much better, and you understand where the answer came from, as you are the one who found it.


This is the way I would structure my tutor sessions - working through questions and areas you find difficult and helping you find the way to the answer, explaining why it is the right answer. All of this will help you a great deal when it comes to having to do it yourself in class/exams (and it really helped me in my exams learning this way!).


One thing that helped me hugely in my exams, and exam preparation was doing lots of past paper questions. This is essential when coming close to your exams as it familiarises you with the exams board's style and structure of questions and not only revises your specific subject knowledge, but also gives you the edge in realising what the examiner is actually asking you. I would dedicate a section of tutorial time to past papers closer to exam time, to get you ready.


I hope this gives a bit of insight about me and how I would structure my tutorials, help you understand your subject areas fully and achieve the best grades you can!
