After twenty years teaching experience, latterly as Head of Department, I have tutored several hundred private pupils. Over 98% of these have gained the grades they needed. I have also worked as Head of Mathematical Modelling for Dowty International. I am a member of the Institute of Physics, a Chartered Physicist, a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, and a Fellow of the Institute of Analysts and Programmers. I have a Post Graduate Certificate in Education and CRB clearance


My experience includes:  teaching maths to day-release apprentices, reading to slow learners, physics and chemistry in several comprehensive and private schools, and teaching a University Physics course. I was appointed as Head of Physics at Christ's Hospital, a girls' public school. I then became Head of Science, with a Department of five, in a comprehensive school in Hatfield, where the Headmaster hoped to start a sixth form.


I offer tuition in maths and sciences to primary, and secondary school pupils, and physics to undergraduates. My pupils appreciate that I am always careful to explain the logical connections between mathematical and scientific topics, something which is not always done in schools.  Many of my ex-pupils have gained good University Places some at Oxford and Cambridge. One University Professor told me he was always glad to accept my pupils because they had a good grounding in mathematics and Physics.
