BIOGRAPHY

I used to work as a research physicist at Cambridge University. I have always have had a dual interest in the arts and sciences. I’ve written a novel and several full length plays and got into directing student plays and films at Cambridge. I now co-run a small production company making music videos and adverts and our first feature film is in production.

APPROACH TO TUITION

I am passionate about the subjects I tutor in and education in general. Knowledge is liberating and my subjects especially open many doors. They are not easy and require a willingness to work hard, but I strongly believe that anyone can get to grips with them if given the correct guidance. Most often the problem is not the student but a poor teacher, unresolved conceptual difficulties or lack of motivation. I want to fix these issues for you.
