This is how 3 referees rated Alexander:
Hello, my name is Alex I am 21 years old and have lived in Storrington for most of my life. I have recently graduated from the University of Exeter (Ranked in the top 10 Universities in the country and top 100 globally) with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics (classification 2:1). Prior to this I studied locally achieving A levels in: Maths (A), History (A) and Economics (B). I enjoy maths and would like to share my knowledge with others. It is not long since I was sitting important exams myself and I know I will be able to empathise with my tutees.
Despite not having explicit tutoring experience, I believe during my education I have acquired skills that make me more than able to be a successful tutor. During my 6th form, as a part of a CCF program, I undertook an MRI CARDA teaching course which taught me techniques for one-on-one teaching scenarios. At university I participated in a scheme where 2nd/3rd year students would advise 1st year students with their choice of modules. I found one of the most effective ways of understanding maths concepts was explaining them to my friends. Even having them explain difficult situations to me was really beneficial, so I appreciate the student-teacher dynamic.
I will gain an understanding of the tutees aims, the exams that they are entered for and their desired grade. I will then assess the tutees current knowledge of the curriculum to identify which concepts are understood and which need to be reinforced. I will then set a series of agreed objectives which the tutee and I can work towards. Then start a process of
• Explain the theory of the concept
• Present worked examples
• Set practice questions
• Utilise past exam papers
• Teach exam technique
I am available every day of the week past midday (apart from Wednesday), I look forward to your response and I welcome any questions you might have.

Alex is very patience in his approach, helping James to find his own method of working through maths problems to solve them.
Alex tailors each session to what James is currently learning at school for his maths A level which helps to reinforce the methodologies and different problem solving techniques.
