I've tutored Physics (Newtonian mechanics, Quantum Mechanics and Thermodynamics) and Maths (Complex Analysis and Differential Calculus) at degree level, Oxbridge applications to Physics, Maths, Engineering, Chemistry and Natural Sciences including preparation for the PAT (Physics Aptitude Test), MAT (Maths Aptitude Test), STEP and NSAA (Natural Sciences Aptitude Assessment). I've tutored Maths, Statistics, Chemistry, Physics and Further Maths at A level as well as Statistics and Biology at GCSE. I've taught 11+ for UCS, Westminster, Cheltenham Ladies College and Highgate. I tutored full time for a year after I graduated from my masters. I also worked for a Chinese company teaching Oxbridge applications to classes of around twenty online (around 10 classes). I have written notes on Physics A level and taught revision classes on A level Maths (around 30 students) in person at Imperial College.
After achieving top grades (4A* and A* EPQ) in college, I read Physics at St. Hilda’s College, University of Oxford and graduated in 2018 First-Class Masters. I first discovered my love of teaching and explaining concepts in science and maths while working for an outreach program at university. Since then I have worked as a private tutor in North London and online. I specialise in teaching A level exam preparation and the Oxbridge entrance process as well as the 11+ and 13+.
Since my Masters, I’ve been studying for a PhD. in Biophysics at UCL where my particular interest lies in understanding the way cells stretch and maintain their shape.
I, of course, love Maths and Science but I appreciate that not everyone does! If Physics and Maths aren’t your favourite subjects, don’t worry, I can help. I can break down Physics or Maths, at any level, into manageable chunks. I’ve also got great tips on revision and exam technique.
If, however, you’re interested in Physics and Maths and are looking to study further or maybe make a mark on the scientific world yourself, I can give a broader, more in depth approach to the subject that won’t just get you acing the exam, it’ll help you write a great personal statement, answer technical questions in an interview.
I like to encourage my students to ask me questions and in return I ask a lot of questions but there are no silly answers or obvious questions. I go slowly and start from the basics so if there’s anything that’s unclear we’ll make sure we sort it.
Once we’ve gone over the groundwork, I like to test whether a student has truly understood the subject by tweaking the questions slightly and seeing how they perform with different scenarios to ensure they're not just blindly following a method but rather thinking independently.
When I first meet with a student, I like to make a list of key areas that they’re finding particularly challenging then I can write a plan of how we’d go about fixing any issues they’re having. It’s no use teaching rocket science before first learning Newton’s laws!
What I do when I am not tutoring
I'm currently studying for a PhD. at UCL in Theoretical Biophysics. In my spare time, I enjoy cycling and pub quizzes.
''My daughters have worked with several different tutors throughout the years - for 11+ exams, GCSEs and now A levels. At present, we are very impressed with Jack McLarty, who is attentive, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. He is doing a wonderful job working with our daughter in Year 13 to prepare for her Further Maths A level exams.'' - Mother of year 13 student
