I am currently a Science and Engineering Tutor at Kaplan International College London.
Apart from that, I am a fully Qualified Secondary School Teacher (Science). Over the last 10 years, I have been involved in Private Tuition in the areas of Mathematics and Physics for Exam/College Preparation as well as University Level courses. I have experience in the UK (GCSE & A-Levels), International Baccalaureate Curriculum (SL & HL), the Australian (Year11 & 12) School System, The American AP1 and AP2 Physics and AP Calculus (AB, BC) as well as the Oxbridge Admission tests (PAT/STEP). Furthermore, I have worked as an Academic Researcher (Theoretical Particle Physics).
I am a full-time Private Tutor in Mathematics and Physics. A large part of my work is related to University Level tuition but also the last two grades of High School (exam preparation).
From my placements in UK and Australia I have extensive experience and knowledge in teaching 1st and 2nd year Physics courses, such as Classical Mechanics, Classical Electrodynamics, Thermodynamics, Calculus, Statistics as well as more advanced 3rd and 4th year subjects, such as Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Field Theory, Optics & Lasers, Particle Physics, Special and General Relativity etc.
Moreover, I have taught various topics in University Level mathematics, such as Calculus, Advanced/Multivariable Calculus, Algebra, Complex Analysis, Group Theory, Differential Geometry, Differential Equations, Mathematical Physics, etc.
Furthermore, I have experience in the UK schooling system and currently work with a number of London based tutoring offices, teaching Physics and Mathematics for GCSE/iGCSE and A-Levels (AQA, CCEA, OCR, WJEC ).
I also have experience in GRE Subject Tests (Physics and Mathematics) preparation as well as SAT and GMAT (Math/Quantitative/Analytic sections)
My tutoring teaching methods are highly personalized and are based on result-oriented techniques that help students overcome learning barriers. An initial assessment/evaluation and subsequently a tuition plan is made. Given that feedback is essential, I continuously communicate with the student and her/his family in order to adjust and improve the teaching experience.
More independent students will come up with their own questions and a list of topics from the syllabus that need help with. This is the best way that tutoring works. More challenged students will require a scaffolding and specific lesson structure e.g. full syllabus teaching along with homework, assessments, etc.
As seen from my CV, I have completed a Diploma in Education (DipEd, UNSW 2012) and I am a fully Qualified Secondary School Teacher. I have experience in teaching both at one-to-one and at a class setting.
The rest of my education involves a Ph.D. in Theoretical High Energy Particle Physics (University of Oxford, 2002), a Bachelors Degree in Physics (University of Ioannina 1998) and a Diploma in Business (Kent Institute of Business and Technology, 2012). I also have extensive experience in research (Theoretical Physics, 2001-2007).
