My name is Tommy and I have always had an insatiable passion for science, a deep appreciation for beauty in mathematics and a real love of sharing knowledge. I graduated four years ago with a first class MSci in Theoretical Physics from Queen Mary, University of London, and since then I have worked as both a graduate teaching assistant for maths, for six months, I have also tutored extensive numbers of tutees both face to face and most recently online. I have tutored students from KS3 all the way up to 3rd year Mathematics. I have extensive experience of the GCSE and A-level curriculum for both Physics and Mathematics, from my in school teaching, my university degree and from working with previous tutees. I also have worked with students with specific learning difficulties, full time, on advance mathematics modules such as, Group Theory, Number Theory and Linear Algebra.
I found that, while in school, my own personal method of learning did not coincide with the general teaching methods of the teachers at school, and so it was only when I was able to revise and learn in my own way, at university, did I feel that I really reached my potential. From this I felt that I obtained an understanding of the many different ways people learn, and have been able to tailor my sessions to the students needs.
Tutoring maths and physics, and facilitating those, 'oh yeah' moments is what I really do love about my job.
Since the start of the academic year 2016/2017 I have tutored many students online, using Tutorhub as well as other online classroom environments. I helped an oxford entry student with their MAT entry exams. Another current student I have is in year 6 who I am helping work towards an early GCSE in mathematics through 'FunTech', where I coordinate all course material. A am a verified maths doctor, and have taken students, GCSE and A level, and have helped over 30 students with their problems in mathematics through that website alone.
"Thomas is simply exceptional and has a refreshing approach to both learning and teaching. His ability to grasp new concepts is exemplary and his commitment to teaching is un-paralleled." - FunTech.
Tommy is a great teacher. He is very patient and kind and will always help, even when really struggling. So I really recommend Tommy to anyone for Maths and Physics.kemmy
