About Luke

Physics phD student at UCL originally from Oxford

Expertise: Physics, Mathematics, c++, Java, Perl, bash and general programming.

If you are experiencing any of these issues I can definitely help you:

1) How to solve exam problems.

2) Understanding a concept or idea.

3) How to overcome difficult problems.

4) Lack of confidence in applying mathematics.

5) Relating ideas between different subjects to consolidate learning.

6) Why the problem is relevant to the real world.

7) How to actually learn independently.

Understanding a subject requires actually doing it, practicing it such as solving problems related to it. I hope to develop the student through 'showing by example' and guidance through many problems. How to think about and solve something when you are stuck is such a valuable skill in exams and in life.

I would never teach anything I, myself, do not understand thoroughly.

GCSE Level Science and Maths

Written by Shirley F
Luke tutored my son during August this year with GCSE Level Science and Maths. This proved to be both a revision tool and general confidence booster. Luke was patient with my son and clear with his advice and direction. He provided detailed explanation throughout the sessions and encouraged my son to justify his answers in order to consolidate/embed information.
Subject:
Science
Outcome:
I feel that my son has retained data from these sessions and has been provided with useful techniques to enable him to plan his future revision sessions independently. He has also gained confidence, w

Luke was an excellent tutor. Always punctual. He taught my son Rishi, Grade 10, some of the fundamentals of Java programming. The classes were very interesting and even though they lasted for two hours, it felt like Rishi was not tired and could have gone on for longer. We were very happy with him. We stopped only because we left London.
Subject:
Java
Outcome:
Rishi now has a better understanding of Java and basic programming concepts and is eager to learn more.
