Maths & Physics Tutor (PhD, Qualified Sec. School Teacher)
I work as a Science and Engineering Tutor at Kaplan International College London at London Bridge. Apart from that, I am a fully Qualified Secondary School Teacher (Science). Over the last 10 years, I have been involved in Private Tuition in the areas of Mathematics and Physics for Exam/College Preparation as well as University Level Courses. I have experience in the UK (GCSE & A-Levels), the International Baccalaureate curriculum in Physics (SL/HL) and Mathematics (SL/HL), the Australian (Year11 & 12) School System as well as Oxbridge Admission tests (PAT/STEP). Furthermore, I have worked as an Academic Researcher (Theoretical Particle Physics).
I am a full-time Private Tutor in Mathematics and Physics. A large part of my work is related to University Level tuition but also the last two grades of High School (exam preparation).
From my placements in UK and Australia, I have extensive experience and knowledge in teaching 1st and 2nd-year Physics courses, such as Classical Mechanics, Classical Electrodynamics, Thermodynamics, Calculus, Statistics as well as more advanced 3rd and 4th-year subjects, such as Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Field Theory, Optics & Lasers, Particle Physics, Special and General Relativity etc.
Moreover, I have taught various topics in University Level mathematics, such as Calculus, Advanced/Multivariable Calculus, Algebra, Complex Analysis, Group Theory, Differential Geometry, Differential Equations, Mathematical Physics, etc.
Furthermore, I have experience in the UK schooling system and currently work with a number of London based tutoring offices, teaching Physics and Mathematics for GCSE/iGCSE and A-Levels (AQA, CCEA, OCR, WJEC ).
I also have experience in GRE Subject Tests (Physics and Mathematics) preparation as well as SAT and GMAT (Math/Quantitative/Analytic sections)
My tutoring teaching methods are highly personalized and are based on result-oriented techniques that help students overcome learning barriers. An initial assessment/evaluation and subsequently a tuition plan is made. Given that feedback is essential, I continuously communicate with the student and her/his family in order to adjust and improve the teaching experience.
More independent students will come up with their own questions and a list of topics from the syllabus that need help with. This is the best way that tutoring works. More challenged students will require a scaffolding and specific lesson structure e.g. full syllabus teaching along with homework, assessments, etc.
As seen from my CV, I have completed a Diploma in Education (DipEd, UNSW 2012) and I am a fully Qualified Secondary School Teacher. I have experience in teaching both at one-to-one and at a class setting.
The rest of my education involves a PhD in Theoretical High Energy Particle Physics (University of Oxford, 2002), a Bachelors Degree in Physics (University of Ioannina 1998) and a Diploma in Business (Kent Institute of Business and Technology, 2012). I also have extensive experience in research (Theoretical Physics, 2001-2007).
MY LOCATION, COSTS AND AVAILABILITY!
I am available for online tuition throughout the week. The cost of online tuition is $60 per hour. Given that my schedule changes very often I recommend that you contact me directly in regard to the availability.
