I completed my PGCE in Science (Physics with Maths) in 2018 from the UCL Institute of Education. I taught both Science and Maths at a range of schools, from ages of 11 up to 18. After graduating from my PGCE I taught at a school in south London, including experience of teaching many students with special educational needs or with English as an additional language. I ran the year 7 STEM club, and was a form tutor with pastoral responsibilities for 30 year 7 students. My experience includes teaching at the following levels:
- KS3: Mathematics and Science
-GCSE: Biology (AQA, Edexcel and OCR)
- GCSE: Physics (AQA, Edexcel and OCR)
- GCSE: Chemistry (AQA, Edexcel and OCR)
- GCSE: Mixed science/Additional Science/Core science (AQA, Edexcel and OCR)
- GCSE Mathematics (Edexcel)
- GCSE: Statistics (Edexcel)
- A-level: Physics (OCR A and B)
- A-level Mathematics (Edexcel)
I grew up in Cheshire, and studied at Poynton High School, achieving three As at A level in Chemistry, Maths and Physics, and an AS level in Drama. I then achieved a First in an integrated masters degree (MPhys) in Experimental Physics. After my degree I worked in a nuclear power station before living in South Korea for four months, teaching English to students from age 4-16.
I enjoy getting to know the student I am tutoring and then tailor the subject matter and lesson style towards both the student’s needs and interests. I am a firm believer that only once a student has found genuine interest in a subject can they make true progress.
What I do when I am not tutoring
I am learning Spanish in my free time and I fundraise for as well as being the Treasurer of the registered charity India Direct. As well as this, I also play rugby and enjoy running.
Ewan is a patient, intervening and vastly knowledge person. I can’t thank him enough for all the help that he gave me, he makes the sessions effective, engaging and fun, he explains really well and I am able to adapt easily thanks to him, with his help I was able to take my work to a next level. I would definitely recommend him as a tutor! -Ali, A level Student
