I have a PhD in theoretical physics from Cambridge University, five years postdoctoral experience at University College London working in computational physiology, and professional software development experience at the MathWorks, makers of MATLAB and Simulink. I have extensive experience teaching at Cambridge University and teaching and lecturing at University College London. I'm available to tutor at GCSE, A-level and degree level in Mathematics, Science and Computing, and can also provide tuition in a variety of programming languages and computer platforms. I can provide a reference from the UCL physics Director of Undergraduate Teaching Laboratories as to the quality of my teaching.
