Tutoring Maths, Physics and Chemistry for GCSE, IB, A-level

I am a PhD student of Mechanical Engineering currently working at Imperial College London. I completed my undergraduate degree at Imperial and have also undertaken a year in industry working for Atkins.

I would like to offer help with Maths, Physics and Chemistry, especially for GCSE, IGCSE, IB and A-level. Although I want every student I help to achieve the highest results possible, my main aim is to develop a firm understanding and interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects so that they may enjoy studying them and have a greater capability to take them on at higher levels if they so choose. I myself have been passionate about science and engineering ever since I learned about climate change back in year 3. Since then I have always wanted to do as much as I can to make a difference and try to help with the problems we face involving energy and climate change.

Outside of engineering I am very interested in my music. I play guitar and I am also a DJ. I have now played at a number of events and venues including London's Ministry of Sound. I regularly attend concerts put on by the wide range of bands that I listen to.

I am primarily able to work in the Bromley area and areas around South Kensington where I am at university, but I am willing to be quite flexible if the need arises. I am also quite flexible with times for lessons, including doing lessons at weekends, so please do send a message asking if I am available.

Reference from Steve Sharp

I taught Mike IB Higher Level Physics at Sevenoaks School. He is a bright, thoughtful and diligent student. He would be a capable and reliable tutor of Physics at GCSE or IGCSE level and of significant help to anyone studying IB HL or SL or A-level.

Great tutor

Michael is helping my 15 year old son with maths and science and is doing a fantastic job. And, my son really enjoys it which is a surprise to both of us. Michael is a very pleasant young man who is enthusiastic, resourceful and always punctual. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

A superb tutor!

Mike is an outstanding mathematician. He is kind, professional and very capable. Every 1 hour session with him, was more beneficial than a whole week of school teachings. I have finally finished my A-level exams, and I am hoping to receive an A in mathematics. I cannot thank Mike enough for all the help he has given me and I would truly recommend him to anyone.
