The University of Manchester - PhD Structural Engineering
I have been a lecturer at University of Manchester foundation year for physics and maths during my PhD, and have been tutoring privately for over 10 years now. Since graduation I have continued tutoring privately and have worked with several educational institutions such as INTO Manchester, and Delta Tutors; teaching maths and physics for GCSE, IGCSE, AS and A-Levels, and the Scottish equivalents NAT4, 5, Higher and Advanced Higher. I enjoy teaching and deeply care about the two subjects. I believe all students can enjoy these subjects, given the right guidance.
Before booking a lesson please get in touch with me so that we can agree on a time. Please give me at least 24 hour notice before paying fro a lesson.
* 4 years teaching Maths and Physics at Manchester University foundation year; helping students to revise what they have studied in their A-Level and prepare them to study further maths and physics for their engineering course;
* Over 10 years tutoring privately;
* I have taught students from INTO Manchester institute. Equivalent of A-Levels, preparing students to apply for universities in the UK;
* 4 years as physics and maths tutor.
I think the majority of students find maths and physics difficult because at some point at school, they have missed the most important and fundamental concepts. These subjects are considered hard because concepts are built on top of each other and if the student lacks an understanding of a fundamental concept, this will create barrier to any further learning. I will invest time to assess student’s understanding of these fundamental concepts and revisit them if necessary.
For teaching, I try to ask questions step by step for solving problems rather than just "lecturing" the students. I find this method more engaging and more helpful to the students because they will be the one who solve the problem. This will give them the confidence they need and they will remember the material for longer as they have worked to get the answers.
I design questions similar to past paper questions, this gaurantees the quality of questions and prepares studetns for the exam right away.
Prior to commencement of lessons, I'd like to have a chat with you to discuss any specific needs and to devise a plan accordingly. Hopefully we can keep in touch during the year to discuss the improvements and the feedback students get from their school. Getting good grades requires a good amount of work and this can be achieved with everyone being engaged.
Thanks for visiting my profile and I look forward to hearing from you.
