Hi there!

I'm a research scientist with a doctorate in experimental nuclear physics specializing in mathematics and science tutoring with over 5 years of teaching experience.

In general my rates are:
$50/hr for one on one tutoring for years 10-12
$40/hr for one on one tutoring for years 7-9
$35/hr for one on one tutoring for years 1-6
$30/hr PER student for group sessions
($60/hr for one on one tutoring for extension subjects and IB level courses)

There are discounts for multiple sessions per week when available.

My name is Stuart, I'm 28 years old and I am a scientific researcher in physics, specializing in experimental nuclear physics. I completed my Doctoral degree in 2017 at the University of Manchester in the UK. Upon completion of my doctoral degree, I moved to Finland where I was employed as a postdoctoral researcher in the nuclear spectroscopy group at the University of Jyväskylä.

During the course of my academic career I have been fortunate to travel the world and work at a number of laboratories spanning 4 continents. In addition to the research, I have experience teaching a wide range of students, ranging from early secondary school students to postgraduate students studying for their doctoral degrees.

My general approach to tutoring is to find the method that best suits each individual. In many instances, helping a student find the best way of learning for them is the first step to seeing them flourish. I have a huge collection of personal notes for topics that students often find extremely helpful in addition to the mountains of practice problems and exam style questions I have that ensure that every student is fully prepared come assessment day.

Generally I prefer home visits but I am also able to tutor students at my home if that is preferable. I am also available to offer remote services such as proof reading, assistance in creation of study aids and video conferencing for presentations at an additional cost.

I would like to meet for an introductory session (typically half an hour or so, $30) where we can meet and discuss preferred methods and learning objectives and see if it is a good fit moving forwards. Choosing the right tutor is equally as important in making the decision to get tutoring in the first place.

I offer set hours week, however extra sessions may be requested at particularly busy periods when deadlines approach or during exam season. I will do my best to accommodate the needs of each individual student.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any further questions or would like to arrange a meeting.

Cheers, Stuart

Qualifications

I have a PhD in experimental nuclear physics and worked as a research scientist in the nuclear spectroscopy group at JYFL in Finland before moving to Australia to embark on a career in medical physics at the University of Newcastle. I also hold a First Class Masters degree in Theoretical Physics.

Throughout my career I have been fortunate work in laboratories all across the globe in collaborations spamming numerous countries as well as teaching numerous undergraduate students as a lecturer, tutor and laboratory demonstrator at both the University of Manchester and the University of Newcastle.
