Christopher

Cambridge Tutor

Now entering my final year of Mathematics at Cambridge, graduating in June 2019. Available to tutor all year. Familiar with new A level specifications. Also have experience preparing candidates for Oxbridge Interviews, STEP, MAT. Can also provide personal statement advice.

I'm a polite, fun and easy person to get along with. I have 5 years experience as a DBS certified tutor, something I really enjoy doing alongside my current roles. I'm in the second year of my Mathematics Undergraduate degree at Queens' College, Cambridge. In my first year, I have tutored around 10 people in various parts of Cambridge, cycling for one-to-one lessons in the evenings, weekends, and weekdays, right up until they sat their exams. This is something I'm very passionate about doing, and I find this fits in as a nice break to my university studies!

Previous roles:

BMLL, Data Scientist (2017): Modelling stochastic financial processes, and temporal clustering of market states based on inherent market micro-structure features.

University of Cambridge, Mathematical Tripos (2016)

Alphasense Ltd, Data Scientist (2016): Coding in Python on Linux OS, representing complex data structure in Convolution Neural Networks and Bayesian Neural Nets.

Belfast Royal Academy (2007-2014): High achieving in academia, but also participating in a range of extra-curricular interests that have helped cultivate my social, communication and leadership skills (Rugby, Music, Chess, Bridge, Drama, Duke Of Edinburgh's Award (Silver) )

Coding (2016-present): Python, bash scripting using command line interfaces and text editors, proficient using Linux systems. I also use LaTeX, typesetting Mathematics assignments for students.

Tutoring Experience

Mathematics Tutor (2012-present): I have been tutoring since I passed the exams myself, meaning I am fully up to date with the process for these subjects and the learning and topics that are involved.

Tutoring Approach

My in depth and extensive knowledge of the subject has been collectively organized and applied in a way that reveals many shortcuts to all standard syllabus questions on GCSE and A level examination boards. I produce hand outs, and in-depth solutions covering fine points and aiding retention. By assessing the students capabilities in the subject by a series of weekly assignments, I am able to pinpoint exactly where to direct our focus. I also encourage the student to think independently. Complex problems, when solved, can bring a sense of unique satisfaction unlike no other.

Many of my lessons take place online via Skype. Students find this to be a very positive experience, and learning from the comfort of their own home.
