6 years of experience, friendly, approachable, with in-school experience.
Hi, my name is Duncan - I am a Maths, Science and Physics tutor based in London. I have a real passion for tutoring, and for finding engaging, productive ways to teach. Over the years, I have worked with children and adult learners with various requirements, and I have a proven track record of success.
I pride myself on being friendly and approachable as a tutor – creating a relaxed atmosphere where I encourage discussion and questions. I find this environment leads to a much better understanding of the work and also gives students a real confidence in what they are learning.
QUALIFICATIONS & EXPERIENCE: • BSc (Hons) in Physics 2:1 from the University of Glasgow. • Five 'A' Grades and one 'B' Grade in Scottish Highers. • Up-to-date DBS Certificate. • 6 years tutoring experience in Scotland & England. • In-school experience.
As well as private tutoring, I also have the following experience:
• Workshop leader in NHS funded school workshops to develop and improve communication skills and raise awareness of health issues (12-14 year olds).
• Support worker for weekend workshops (with 15-17 year olds) on performance and writing skills.
• Assistant co-ordinator for open days at University of Glasgow, speaking to parents and prospective students about the degree course in Physics and arranging ‘fun-day’ activities.
My main areas of tutoring are Physics, Science and Maths at school levels, but see the full list of subjects that I cover. I also tutor in Acting and Performance for all ages: audition preparation, accent work, confidence boosting... or simply for fun!
