About me

Welcome! My name is Jacan, and for almost 5 years, I have loved teaching maths and science here on MyTutor. To give a little personal background, I'm a Theoretical Physics graduate, 1st Class Hons, with a Master's degree in nuclear fusion. I found A Levels difficult, and had a rocky start with my subjects in the first year, getting an E in maths for my first year.

Knowing I wanted to be a physicist I (literally) got on my knees and begged the head of maths to let me continue to...

Welcome! My name is Jacan, and for almost 5 years, I have loved teaching maths and science here on MyTutor. To give a little personal background, I'm a Theoretical Physics graduate, 1st Class Hons, with a Master's degree in nuclear fusion. I found A Levels difficult, and had a rocky start with my subjects in the first year, getting an E in maths for my first year.

Knowing I wanted to be a physicist I (literally) got on my knees and begged the head of maths to let me continue to the next year. They had reason to be skeptical, as I was pleading that I could retake the first year at the same time as proceeding with the second, a pretty drastic feat. I expect it was more the pitiful image of the 17 year old on the floor that swayed them, rather than any real belief, but I ran with it. I drew up spreadsheets, plotted timetables, and wrote log books on my progress.

By the end, I had achieved an A*, A*, A in Maths, Physics and Chemistry, respectively, getting the highest grades in my Sixth Form for Maths and Physics. Since then, I have been working both with students who, like me, struggled with the standard education system, and those students who were looking to polish already good grades into excellent ones. As if the process of talking about science on a regular basis weren't reward enough, I have also been thrilled by watching the wonderful growth of my students under my tuition (see my reviews).

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.
