I am currently a PhD student in the field of Nanoscience. I achieved my Masters in Physics in 2011 and since starting my initial studies, have fallen in love with academia. I have been tutoring since 2014 and also regularly lead take part in science outreach activities. This ranges from university led primary school clubs to public entertainment lectures.
Physics and Maths to me have a beauty and interconnected nature. I find that quite often the key to understanding is to work with others to find this view. I would definitely say this is part of my tutoring style. In tutoring, I to try and tackle weaknesses from points of strengh.
Due to the interconnected nature of my subjects, there are multiple approaches to understanding a topic. The key to cracking these difficult areas is to approach them from an area of solid understanding.
My session structures are timescale dependent. Ideally I will like to work long term with a student and to explore a subject’s syllabus in full. My goal is that by working together, I can produce a revision guide for exams.
The contents of this guide will quite often be lead from the sessions we have worked on. Ideally, I like small examples of the student attempting to convey the subject back to me as I can be more sure of understanding. In the shorter terms, it is important to identify problem areas from my student’s opinion (and my own taken from the sessions).
Above all it is important to practice questions and past exam papers in order to get an overview from where we are.
