Hi, I'm Simon

I have always possessed a tremendous thirst for knowledge, and am passionate in my pursuit of it. I believe there are always new fields of study to explore and ideas to engage one`s imagination - I suppose one could say that I simply love learning. I believe it is of the utmost importance that the student tries to understand the mathematical ideas and/or physical concepts behind the topics they are studying - to picture the problem or situation in one`s imagination often helps one appreciate what one is trying to accomplish, and gives one a much better understanding of what is involved in solving problems and achieving success. This approach of getting inside a subject has stood me in good stead throughout my academic career, and still forms the cornerstone of my continued quest for facts to fire my imagination.
