The tutor – Dr. Tammy HumphreyI have a PhD and a 1st class honours degree in physics from the University of New South Wales. I have previously worked in physics research in Australia, as well as in the U.S. and Europe, with my most recent academic position being a Marie Curie Incoming International Fellowship at the University of Geneva. More detailed information on my research and academic employment can be found on my professional homepage, www.humphrey.id.au.
In 2007 I was looking for more family friendly work (I now have two young sons), and having enjoyed previous teaching roles, I completed a Graduate diploma in secondary education at Macquarie University, taking both science and maths teaching methodology subjects.
I am enthusiastic about the subjects I teach, and since starting tutoring I have enjoyed immensely seeing my students progress in their understanding (and enjoyment!) of maths and science.
