I offer free trial lessons.
Hi, my name is Daniel and I'm a Physics, Maths and Science tutor.
I've garnered considerable positive feedback for my warm teaching style - I'm friendly and enjoy what I do. This has gone down well with my students. My academic research and teaching background provides my students access to an educational perspective with a very unusual breadth of scope: I teach little ones times tables and how to add up fractions, rooms of KS3 pupils practical science and critical thinking, prepare stressed KS4 pupils for their GCSEs and motivated sixth-form students for A-Levels and university entrance assessments.
I have a background in Physics research - 10 years of postdoctoral research and an internationally recognised expertise in neutron spectroscopy, computational condensed matter theory and nuclear materials; you can find my research profile on ResearchGate. I hold MPhys (1st class) and PhD degrees in Physics, have published in top academic journals, been invited to presented my research at international conferences around the world and developed a novel method of interpreting and analysing complex multi-dimensional data from neutron scattering experiments. I`ve also completed the gruelling Initial Teacher Training course, have a PGCE as a Science Teacher (Physics specialist) and hold Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
This adds to my experience in HE, where I lectured to undergraduate and postgraduate physicsts, supervised research projects for final year masters students and trained (and learned from) PhD students and postdoctoral researchers in cutting edge condensed matter physics. I know, understand, have applied and can teach skills that will help students develop specific expertise in university-level topics that, in turn, will enable them to focus on the physics and enjoy their course of learning.
I have additional experience in:
I`ve had experience teaching KS3-5 in maths and science, including A-Level Physics, Maths and Further Maths. I`ve also taught undergraduate and postgraduate courses in physics, supervised several final year and Masters project students.
Topics in a BSc/MPhys course modules that I tutor:
For postgraduate support, I feel confident providing advice and learning support for Level 7/ Masters in topics directly related to my main research interests:
neutron spectroscopy, nuclear materials, computational chemistry, data simulation, fitting and visualisation.
