I started teaching Physics because I'm not good at Physics!

What I mean by that is, I went through many years needing to develop my own ways of understanding concepts, making use of different methods of learning Physics, and forming many mental connections (sometimes initially wrong too, though eventually we'd get there) until I could build a rigorous picture of the subject.

There's this stigma that Physics is incredibly hard and only for naturally gifted people. While Physics certainly takes work, I'll fight vehemently against the notion that you have to have a "certain type" of brain to understand Physics (or any Science, for that matter). With our personalised approach at Atlas and the many tools we have at hand to help students build their understanding; I believe that *everyone* is capable of seeing the beauty of Physics, and using it to explain the world around us. It's what our Physics team is united by and excels at.
