I am a Theoretical Particle Physicist (PhD, Oxford U. 2002) and apart from my research, I teach Physics and Math for all levels.( General Mathematics, Maths Extension 1, Maths Extension 2, Physics Years10-12, International Baccalaureate, College Entrance, Foundation). University Students are mostly welcome.

I am currently Tutoring students on Foundation Courses for Sydney University and NSW University, UTS Engineering, Sydney U. Maths, and Year 11, 12 Physics and Maths in the Sydney area (Glebe, Bondi Junction, CBD).

----- A Minimum Syllabus for College Physics -----

Algebra: properties of polynomials, including the solution of quadratics. Graph sketching and transformations of variables. Inequalities and their solution. Elementary trigonometry including relationships between sin, cos and tan (sum and difference formulae will be stated if required). Properties of logarithms and exponentials. Arithmetic and geometric progressions and the binomial expansion.

Calculus: differentiation and integration of polynomials including fractional and negative powers. Differentiation as finding the slope of a curve, and the location of maxima, minima and points of inflection. Integration as the reverse of differentiation and as finding the area under a curve. Simplifying integrals by symmetry arguments.

Mechanics: distance, velocity, speed, acceleration, and the relationships between them. Interpretation of graphs. Response to forces; Newtonâ€TMs laws of motion; weight and mass; addition of forces; circular motion. Friction, air resistance, and terminal velocity. Levers, pulleys and other elementary machines. Springs and Hookeâ€TMs law. Kinetic and potential energy and their inter-conversion; other forms of energy; conservation of energy; power and work.

Waves and optics: longitudinal and transverse waves; amplitude, frequency, period, wavelength and speed, and the relationships between them. Basic properties of the electromagnetic spectrum. Reflection at plane mirrors. Refraction and elementary properties of prisms and lenses including total internal reflection (mathematical treatment not required). Elementary understanding of interference and diffraction.

Electricity and magnetism: current, voltage (potential difference), charge, resistance; relationships between them and links to energy and power. Elementary circuits including batteries, wires, resistors, filament lamps, diodes, capacitors, light dependent resistors and thermistors; series and parallel circuits. Elementary electrostatic forces and magnetism. Links between electricity and magnetism; electromagnets, motors, generators and transformers. Current as a flow of electrons; thermionic emission and energy of accelerated electron beams.

Natural world: atomic and nuclear structure; properties of alpha, beta and gamma radiation; half lives. Nuclear fission. Structure of the solar system. Phases of the moon and eclipses. Elementary treatment of circular orbits under gravity including orbital speed, radius, period, centripetal acceleration, and gravitational centripetal force. Satellites; geostationary and polar orbits. Elementary properties of solids, liquids and gases including responses to pressure and temperature.
