Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

About me

I obtained BSc and PhD degrees from the University of Newcastle and subsequently taught at degree level in the Physics Department of Trinity College Dublin.  I have also taught at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in the Computer Science Department of the University of Durham.

I qualified as a teacher in 2003 and have taught Emmanuel College Gateshead and Barnard Castle School, where I was Head of Physics until I retired in 2017.  The shortage of Physics teachers means that I have continued to teach in a number of schools.  My experience includes teaching both domestic GCSE and Cambridge International GCSE.  At A-Level I have taught the AQA A syllabus, Edexcel Advancing Physics, and also the Cambridge Pre-U course.  As a personal tutor I have I provided tuition for the other exam boards.

 

In addition to my teaching experience I have mentored a number of PGCE students from the University of Durham Department of Education and have been involved with the organisation of two ‘Extreme Physics’ events for the Institute of Physics.
