Many connections exist among science subjects. My expertise is to enable you to excel in Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry by treating them as an integral rather than seemly unlimited concepts and formulae.
I started teaching Physics in universities the 1980s. Many students have become successful in their careers internationally, such as Prof Zhang who has published several papers in Physics Review Letters. e.g. 104, 08971(2010) and 103. 186402 (2009). My professional and international experiences over the past 30 years are unique for helping young students who wish to enter into Science, Medicine and Engineering.
If you just need to know how to solve problems, that's fine, although you only access a fraction of my resources accumulated. Ideally, you are a junior student who wish to strategically study Maths and Physics driven by your intelligence development. For senior students, I can also provide just-in-time training and advice to enable you to be get high marks and become an independent learner before you enter a university.
In Brisbane, I have tutored students from public schools, boy/girl grammar/private schools, QA, and university students in QUT and QU. I don't use a particular textbook. Instead, I design lecture note for each student based on his or her profile and potential. If you are writing your thesis, or a paper to be published in a specialist journal, then you can ask me for help.
It is noticed that some senior students who have been taught a particular subject at school. say Calculus or Faraday Induction Law, still have no clear understanding of some basic concepts and their dependence; others would have difficulties in using their graphical and analytical skills, or repeatedly make silly mistakes. It would appear one could hardly say a sign of relief simply by sending kids in a high-ranged school.
Not only have I taught Physics at all levels, but also I have been a senior researcher and consultant in several interdisciplinary fields and made some original contributions to the theory, experiment, and instrumentation of electron and nuclear spin resonance. If you are interested in such hot research areas as medical imaging and quantum entanglement, you could have a short-cut to get there by asking me.
I believe no child is incapable of mastering high-school Physics and Mathematics. As it is unlikely for all kids to be properly taught at school en masse, I think the traditional one-to-one tuition at home will prevail in the 21st century.
I have taught and tutored many students with contrasting backgrounds and different expectations. As a result, I have developed a numbers of methodologies to cater to their individual needs. By observing how a student solves a few problems, I am able to identify what related basic skills need to be improved.
It is noticed that many students who have experienced all sorts of difficulties in Years 11-12 usually had failed in building related foundations in their junior high years. Unfortunately, the current syllabus does not allow students to strategically develop the related skills and systematical background knowledge. I have been teaching students Physics and Maths as early as Year 7. Some of them have mastered calculus in Year 10.
In many a school, Physics is taught by merely demonstrating how to solve problems numerically without explaining how the original ideas and theories had been developed and what kinds of difficulties the physicists had been experienced. I have helped many students to understand concepts and reveal the relations among seemly irrelevant formulae and ideas. In this way, my students have entered universities with both in-depth understanding and wider horizon in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. (Why also in Chemistry? Because Chemistry is based on Physics: rate equation, atomic physics, quantum mechanics, gas law, and some basic thermodynamics such as enthalpy and entropy. )
Some highlights in my recent tutoring experiences includes: (i) Applying mathematical knowledge to formulate ideas and models in physics; (ii) Enabling a medical graduate to prepare for a Physics examination in Europe in one month from scratch; (iii) Enabling a QU student to obtain high mark in his ODE examination; (iv) Helping a master-degree student to study inferential statistics.
Apart from my teaching experience, I have worked in many interdisciplinary fields. I had studied drug-DNA binding sites in the presence of metal ions, such as Cu(II); free radicals in irradiated food stuffs, HIV-membrane interaction, and high-temperature superconductors. Using my expertise in microwave technologies, I had independently developed several new instruments for research and medical imaging.
Recently, I have helped a student of a grammar school in preparing for International Young Physicist's Tournament on behalf of Australia.
In passing, I have met/tutored students who asked me for help at the last moment before an assignment is due. Although some emergency treatments are available, it is strongly recommended that some "early symptoms" be identified.
I graduated from SCNU in China with BSc, majored in Physics and Physics Teaching. I also obtained my PhD in Physics from Monash University. Part of my PhD Thesis has been adopted for teaching postgraduate students in SUNY, USA. I am one of invited authors to write a Handbook on magnetic resonance spectroscopy for researchers in the field. For more information about my background, click the website in CONTACT.
