About me

About Me:

I am currently studying a Physics and Maths degree at the University of St Andrews and am one of the few people lucky enough (or unlucky enough, depending on how you look at it!) to be able to say that I love numbers and have a real passion for my subject, and hope to share that passion with you.

I love working with children, and have previously worked as a volunteer swimming and tennis coach, at a summer camp in the USA as well as a tutor for the past 4 years. From this I experience I understand the importance of keeping the sessions excited and varied, as well as being patient.

The Sessions

I believe that every person is different, and that sessions should be tailored to each individual. Having said this, I know from personal experience that basic understanding is key and this will be my focus in most sessions.

Alongside this, I like to break down topics into small and simple steps, which can be used to build up to tackling more difficult problems.

More importantly, I like to keep sessions fun and varied, working with students using a variety of methods such as diagrams, exam question and discussion. By working together we can cover the material you want, in the way that works best for you.

What next?

If you have any questions, send me a ‘WebMail’ or book a ‘Meet the Tutor Session’ (you can find both of these on this website). It would also be really helpful if you can tell me your exam board and what you would like to cover in our sessions.

I look forward to meeting you.

James has helped my daughter so much from a predicted C to an A in a couple of lessons. She says he is amazing!

Another really good tutorial from James, would really recommend him - he's helping me loads and improving my confidence with harder questions. My teachers at college say they've seen the difference in class already :)

When does a pendulum bob move fastest and why?

A pendulum bob will move fastest when the mass is at its lowest point (when x=0). The reason for this is that in the pendulum system energy is transferred between kinetic and gravitational potential energy, and total energy will always be fixed in the system. Gravitational potential energy wil...

A pendulum bob will move fastest when the mass is at its lowest point (when x=0). The reason for this is that in the pendulum system energy is transferred between kinetic and gravitational potential energy, and total energy will always be fixed in the system. Gravitational potential energy will be at its minimum when the bob is at the lowest point, meaning that kinetic energy will be at its maximum, resuting in the bob moving fastest at this point.

Why is the centripetal force necessary for circular motion?

The centripetal force can be thought of as the force that causes circular motion. When an object moves in a circle a force must always act on it, even when it moves at a constant speed. This is because velocity is a vector (and therefore has both a magnitude and a direction) and the direction...

The centripetal force can be thought of as the force that causes circular motion.

When an object moves in a circle a force must always act on it, even when it moves at a constant speed. This is because velocity is a vector (and therefore has both a magnitude and a direction) and the direction the object is moving in is constantly changing.

This constant direction change is an acceleration, and we know from Newton's Second Law that any acceleration must have an force associated with it.

Similarly, the centripetal force must point towards the centre of the circle, and therefore perpendicular to the tangential velocity, to maintain the motion in the circle. If it did not exist the object would 'shoot off' in a direction tangential to the circle.
