Hello, my name is Dave Walton, welcome to my website. If you are reading this it probably means that you are looking for a Physics tutor and that is where I can help.
I have been providing A Level Physics tuition for about fifteen years and am currently using communication tools such as Zoom and Skype to offer online lessons.
Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
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.
