Personal Description:

Reading Mathematics at Cambridge, I'm 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.
