Dr Nicholas's Tutoring Profile
Experienced Examiner of Physics and Mathematics, Teacher of All Levels, Ex-Principle University Lecturer
- Queen Mary, University of London (University of London)
- Cardiff University
After obtaining 15 O levels, 5 A levels and 2 S levels at School I obtained a first class honours degree in physics and mathematics with my major physics topic being astrophysics from London University. I am friendly, compassionate and approachable. I am passionate about education, always striving for the best in every student, allowing them to reach their maximum potential. I teach A Level, STEP, NSAA, MAT, as well as undergraduate and higher levels.
I am a very experienced teacher and tutor who has helped numerous students of all abilities in Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry. I was previously a Headteacher of a Secondary school and believe that effort is more important than natural ability. I have tutored up to university level in Mathematics and Physics and taught Chemistry to students up to age 18.
I have been teaching students Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry for over 30 years. I have a wealth of experience getting the best from students at all levels. I have taught Science at Key Stage 3; Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry at GCSE level; and Physics, Mathematics (Pure and Mechanics) and Further Mathematics (Pure and Mechanics) at A level.
I have also taught undergraduate Physics and Mathematics at Honours level to engineering students. In addition to teaching classes, I have tutored over 200 students in Physics and Mathematics at GCSE and A level. Every student has passed their examinations if they have been tutored for a full academic year with most students obtaining the top grade.
I became a principal lecturer at a university teaching of physics subjects and engineering mathematics up to third year undergraduate level and taught for over ten years. I also tutored MSc and PhD students. I then became a school teacher of physics and mathematics and progressed until finally becoming a Headteacher before retiring from full time employment.
I work with most of the examination boards, Russell group universities, the institutes of physics and electrical engineering and provide advice to education committees. I provide on-line tuition to students around the world and teach GCSE, A Level, Undergraduate, and Postgraduate Physics and Mathematics.
