Hi, I'm Peter

I am a dedicated tutor with hundreds of hours of experience in physics and maths tuition. I also have a PhD in Mathematical/Theoretical Physics, as well as an MSc Theoretical Physics (Distinction) and an MSci Physics (1st Class) - in both I was awarded prizes for graduating top of my year. As well as an excellent academic record, I have always prided myself on strong communication skills, which I believe are crucial to science generally, and particularly to education. I have significant experience of working with people of all ages, both within science and wider afield such as in numerous musical projects.
