Personal Description:

** I have 1 space left for tuition starting September 2017**

I am a qualified teacher and a subject specialist with an outstanding track record of helping students exceed their expectations. I have a Master in Mathematics (MMath) from the University of Warwick and a PGCE, specialising in mathematics, from University College London. I am also the recipient of the Mathematics Teacher Training Scholarship from the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications in recognition of my potential to become a leader of mathematics education.

Teaching and mathematics are my two passions and I really enjoy working with young people. In addition to my role as the Head of A Levels at one of the most prestigious international schools in the UK, I tutor and mentor a handful of students each year helping them understand and fall in love with mathematics.

Outside of teaching I like to expand my mathematical knowledge keeping up to date with the latest research. I am currently conducting research with University of Cambridge in the field of Artificial Intelligence and neural design. I am also an associate member of: Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, London Mathematical Society, Royal Statistical Society, Mathematics in Education and Industry, Mathematical Association, and National STEM Centre.

Tutoring Experience:

I have extensive experience teaching mathematics across all age groups and “abilities”. I am currently teaching A Level mathematics and further mathematics, University Foundation Programme (UFP) mathematics and GCSE mathematics. I also help students prepare for competition mathematics (UKMT and BMO), university entrance papers (STEP, AEA and MAT) and school entrance papers (11+). I have received outstanding rating (the highest possible) for 4 consecutive years for my teaching. My students consistently attain excellent results.

In addition to my teaching, I play a key role at my school in preparing students for any mathematics or mathematics related university applications which includes but is not limited to help with UCAS application and mock interviews. I know what is required to, and have helped students, get offers and secure places at the best institutions in the world such as Oxford and Cambridge.

Tutoring Approach:

I fundamentally believe that every student can attain the top grades in mathematics given they have the right guidance. My experience and qualifications place me in a perfect position to help students achieve this goal.

My sessions are tailored to each student. I raise attainment by first making sure that students are comfortable with the “foundations of mathematics”. Then we move onto progressively more difficult concepts, using past exam paper questions to familiarise students with the style of questions they will face in their final exam. I take note of, and constantly reinforce areas that need further developing, reviewing them periodically to make sure that the student has a true understanding of the concept at hand.

In my teaching, I always emphasise the importance of understanding rather than just being able to apply a procedure and strive to achieve understanding with all my students. As an experienced teacher, I appreciate that each student has a different learning style and my tutoring reflects this. As a subject specialist, I am aware of a variety of different methods available to tackle a given question or explain a given mathematical concept. Furthermore, I can derive them from first principles. I believe these qualities are key in getting students to truly understand mathematics as I can provide them with multiple representation of theorems and they can choose what makes sense to them.

I always make the effort and take the time to get to know my students. I look to build a relationship of trust and have excellent rapport with my students. This is of paramount importance as student’s need to feel comfortable to ask questions no matter how trivial they think the question is.

For all my students, I create a “tutoring plan” which will outline the aims and objectives for our tutoring sessions as well as provide a schedule for what we will cover. Furthermore, for those students who commit to frequent tutoring sessions I create a “working folder” that is tailored to their needs. This folder will contain resources and the notes from each tutoring session.

In my teaching, I always look for opportunities to create a sense of awe about mathematics and aim to develop a long-term love of the subject. As part of my mentoring I encourage students to be intellectually curious and inspire them to pursue academic lines of enquiry. I aim to motivate students to be proactive about their learning and fall in love with the process.

I have invested in the latest technology to ensure my online tutoring sessions are as close to the real thing as possible. Students will benefit from outstanding teaching with little compromise. Before students commit to any lessons we will have a 30 minute skype call, free of charge, to test the connection and for the student to get a taster of my online tutoring.
