Summer Hobby of a Physics Teacher

Key take aways

Previously when Aaron worked in a traditional environment, he'd teach Physics to kids who didn't want to do the subject, but HAD TO in order to pass the exams. The private model proves more fulfilling for the student and teacher, because they're both because of their shared interest in the subject.
Aaron finds that interaction with kids is actually better when teaching online than face to face. It's because the kids are at home and happy with their surroundings that they tend to be more communicative. 
Aaron continues to be excited about teaching because his material is constantly evolving and growing, whether it's to kids at UKVS, or to a crowd of people at his Astrogazing evenings.
