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.
For the past thirteen years I have provided tuition in economics, philosophy, mathematics and psychology on a full-time basis, ranging from KS1 all the way through to PhD level. I have also provided coaching for Oxbridge interviews through the charity Teach First.
I have taught students from various universities including Cambridge, Oxford, LSE, and Harvard. I have also led undergraduate classes at UCL in logic and philosophy, and am a senior mentor for the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust.
