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.
