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.

About Me

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.

Services

I teach:

  • Physics up to and including postgraduate-level courses (KS3, GCSE, A-Level and above). See below on degree and PG topics I teach.
  • KS3, GCSE and A-Level Mathematics (also can teach/support undergraduate maths in science & engineering).
  • KS3 & GCSE  Science (Combined, triple or single).

I have additional experience in:

  • Helping students with borderline grades obtain secure passes in maths and science.
  • Extensive experience working with Dyslexic, SEN and Neurodiverse students.
  • Supporting students in obtaining top grades (8+/A+) for college and university offers, including subject specific preparation for STEP/PAT and other entrance examinations.
  • Addressing issues with maths anxiety and learned helplessness in maths.
  • Working with home-schooled, and other students with a non-standard educational background.
  • Undergraduate study skills and exam preparation.
  • Final year and postgraduate research project support.

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:

  • Foundation year/First year: any module (including mathematics for first-year physics and engineering and any astronomy/astrophysics modules at level 3/4).
  • Second year: classical mechanics up to L=T-V and PoLA, vibrations and waves, thermodynamics/thermal physics, materials, condensed matter physics, electricity and magnetism up to Maxwell`s eqns, introductory quantum mechanics, special relativity, mathematics for second-year physics and engineering.
  • Third year: quantum mechanics, solid-state and condensed matter/materials, crystallography and neutron scattering. Linear algebra.

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.

    Daniel was a wonderful tutor. My son was struggling to get a grade 5 in science in January of this year and found it hard. Daniel came on board and inspired my son and he has just achieved 2 grade 7`s in his science GCSE results. My son wouldn`t have managed this without Daniel’s tuition and these are my son`s words. Wish we had taken him on sooner, who knows what he could have achieved. It just goes to show the value of a great teacher. Couldn`t recommend highly enough. Thank you Daniel.
