I've been teaching with TheProfs for almost a year and around 400 hours of lessons. Some of my students are either IB maths and physics but the majority of them are attending BScs in Physics at different universities. I really enjoy teaching any undergrad math and physics courses and I'm happy to help with other useful skills such as scientific writing, exam technique and study schedule. I would be more than happy to teach any advanced theoretical physics too! I try to make topics as easy as possible, often I help the teaching remotely showing little experiments to help visualising the physical processes. My students enjoy the lessons and show a huge success rate at exams, scoring an average mark of 67%.

I've started working as a private tutor during my first year at University. I have a 15 years experience teaching teenagers and adults from high school to university, ranging from Physics to Mathematics to Chemistry. I have also taught severals SEND students. Since 2020 I've been teaching laboratories, QFT and nuclear physics at the University of Southampton.
