What do I enjoy most about tutoring?
I enjoy helping people to become aware of, and understand the natural world and more importantly: how to think.
In the context of young adults, maths and physics have a bad reputation: the stigmas associated with it stem, I believe, from a perceived difficulty. However my opinion is that the perceived difficulty is a learned element - i.e. mathematics/science are not intrinsically difficult, they simply require a different way of thinking - one that stems from a (re-) nurtured innate curiosity.
Helping to guid, and watching that re-kindling that curiosity is priceless.
My Strengths as Tutor
I have a very wide-ranging exposure to various disciplines; more than 15 years professional experience in cutting-edge research. I have contributed to, and am responsible for more than fifty peer-reviewed scientific publications.
While my professional career focused on Physics throughout my educational life, I've completed to high levels, university courses in physics, mathematics, biology and chemistry.
Most important things I can do for a student
In the context of Science and Mathematics, the key aspect is HOW to think. Science requires imagination, innovation as well as an excellent recall and grasp of modern scientific understanding. Mathematics, being a tool - requires the students to be well-equipped with the basic mathematical tools.
To directly answer this question; a tutor must patiently provide information, guidance and advice on how to approach and navigate the field of mathematics and science.
