Physics - GCSE & A-level ( all boards) Science GCSE ( Synergy & trilogy )

I specialise in effective Physics tutoring. I have 27 years of experience and am also an examiner for Edexcel and OCR (including iAL).
I focus on understanding the key concepts and problem solving strategies. Physics is easy when you know how to approach problems.
I use ICT in a variety of ways to make the concepts clearer - Physics is really just maths with pictures! I will help you develop your visualising skills and show you how to apply different methods to answer questions.

Rico (Ph.D)
Support in exact subjects at every level of education (also for deepening out of interest) by a Ph.D in astrophysics.
Creating a good foundation for the exact courses is useful for everyone. It is especially essential that the teacher is skilled and didactic in building the knowledge. I myself experienced that this was missing when I transferred from MBO level 2 to a Ph.D in physics at the University of Amsterdam. I would like to make a difference and send you on your way with a dose of self-confidence to the wonderful world of mathematics, physics and astronomy. For all secondary school levels and higher education, I can guide you with a plan to increase your knowledge and get the best out of yourself for both tests, exams and exams and deepening out of interest.
