He now enjoys working on subject specialism training such as these, being a tutor on the Troops to Teachers programme, A level Physics examining and even some overseas consultancy.

He remains convinced that most of us learn best from hands-on experience.

Excellent tutor - very supportive and explained aspects in a clear manner. Inspired me in Physics!

We often ask our students to imagine things that can’t been seen so it’s incumbent on us to get the very most from the experiences we do create in the laboratory
