Physics is my passion. Maths is the toolbox.
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
I have a Master of Physics degree (1st class), which is a combined Bachelor and Master degree, and also a Doctor of Philosophy degree (in Physics), both from the University of Manchester. As well as this I have a University Teaching Qualification, which is a requirement to lecture at university in the Netherlands (although I'm from the UK, I was a professor of physics in the Netherlands for more than a decade).
I have experimented with many different teaching styles but I am a huge fan of project- and problem-based learning as well as self learn with steering from me. It depends on the subject. It depends on the student. It depends on the interaction. Everyone is different and a tailored approach is best.
I have been tutoring since the final year of my MPhys degree, which I graduated in 2001. I began by helping out a neighbour's child with GCSE science. Then, as he progressed to A-level, I stayed with him but also joined a local tutoring agency too and picked up more students from the town. Jumping forwards many years, as a professor of physics at university I found myself again tutoring the neighbours but now in a different language! I love teaching!
Where do I go from here?
You can send Dr. J a message through Sherpa and they will usually get back to you within 24 hours. You'll receive an SMS and email notification when they do so.
How do the introductions work?
Sherpa gives you the opportunity to meet our tutors in a free 20 minute introduction, which takes place through the Sherpa classroom.
How do lessons work?
All lessons take place through Sherpa's online, industry-leading classroom. This is a combination of a collaborative, real time whiteboard and a video call, like Zoom.
