About me

I study Theoretical Physics at the University of York, currently at Masters' level, having achieved an equivalent first class Bachelors' degree over the course of my first 3 years. During my A Levels, I achieved A* A* A grades in Physics, Chemistry and Maths, but I hadn't always achieved marks like this. During my AS Level, I achieved an E grade for my mathematics exams and a C for my chemistry. I had spent years rubbing up the wrong way against the education system, until finally...

I study Theoretical Physics at the University of York, currently at Masters' level, having achieved an equivalent first class Bachelors' degree over the course of my first 3 years. During my A Levels, I achieved A* A* A grades in Physics, Chemistry and Maths, but I hadn't always achieved marks like this. During my AS Level, I achieved an E grade for my mathematics exams and a C for my chemistry. I had spent years rubbing up the wrong way against the education system, until finally developing a system that worked for me, and it is this which gives me confidence in the importance of an individual approach to education, trying to stimulate creativity, not inhibit trying questions.


Since then, discussing science and mathematics, and trying to share the true pleasure which now it brings me, after having felt so helpless, is my most rewarding and engaging pass-time. I have done this via MyTutor and private tutoring, but also I've participated in outreach events to educate the public on science, I've taught in forums within my department to help other Undergraduates with their homework, and I've achieved an outstanding 93% on a staff reviewed talk with feedback "It's difficult to find fault, really". The best moments in my life have been when grateful tutees have sent me emails thanking me for the help that they feel ultimately led them to secure their space at University.

About my sessions

"Cracking tips, not cracking whips" - many more jokes as terrible as this are, unfortunately, commonplace in my classroom.

I provide a conversational exploration of the topic material with my students. We get through what the syllabus requires, for sure but, crucially, the angle that we take is always driven by my students. I know that it's highly important to let my students take the lead at certain, crucial keystones of the material, as it really takes advantage of the one...

"Cracking tips, not cracking whips" - many more jokes as terrible as this are, unfortunately, commonplace in my classroom.

I provide a conversational exploration of the topic material with my students. We get through what the syllabus requires, for sure but, crucially, the angle that we take is always driven by my students. I know that it's highly important to let my students take the lead at certain, crucial keystones of the material, as it really takes advantage of the one-to-one dynamic of the sessions and allows me to tailor the presentation to the way that they naturally approach the idea. Regular, nonconfrontational questions are peppered throughout sessions to make sure that no one is left behind, and I check as to whether there are any questions from the student of me many times throughout (although, I stress that I am happy to be interrupted at any point with questions if something is getting in the way of my student's understanding)!

The bespoke approach is very important to me, and with it I have tutored students with a wide variety of learning differences. I am always happy to accommodate any preferences or educational requirements, so please do let me know!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me a message or book a free meeting!

See you in the classroom!

Jacan has been tutoring my daughter for these past two years in Chemistry and Physics. She started out with a 7 in both and now she has received her GCSE results, and achieved a 9 in both subjects. This was all due to Jacan's patience, dedication and excellent teaching skills. My daughter, not only improved significantly, but she also enjoyed the subjects and had fun during the tutorials. We could not recommend Jacan enough! Thank you Jacan for all your hard work !

I am extremely glad that we found such a great tutor. My son struggles with some elements of learning; Jacan has helped him to stay on track to get his GCSEs despite missing the majority of his lessons at school due to illness. My son thinks Jacan is a really good tutor.

Incredibly helpful, doubt I would have felt so confident about my exams if not for these tutorials.
