Online Maths and Entrance Exams Teacher

Hey! I m Dan. I m a young and passionate mathematician, with a joint math degree from Imperial College London and MIT. Currently, I am pursuing a Ph.D. in math at Imperial College.

During high school I went to Maths Olympiads and now I am studying for a PhD. I like explaining maths, talking about maths or anything related to it.
And I also like teaching. It s something that I think I can make a difference in.

I strongly believe teaching should be more like a guided self-education process. For an extensive list of past tutoring experience, please consult the 'Teaching Experience' section.

I usually do sessions of 1.5-2 hours. I feel this is a good duration to accumulate knowledge and not get too tired. I usually prepare exercise ahead of the session to consolidate the topic we discuss. I am looking forward to teach for any of these subjects, as well as for any other similar international qualifications/ university admission tests/maths university degrees.

Tutoring Experience

2 years of private tutoring in London. My most relevant teaching experience is:

-GCSE and IGCSE (4 months)
-A Levels -Pure and further pure (all modules), S1,S2 (1 year)
-American/ International syllabus (9 months)
-IB Further Math (5 months-online)
-Pearson Functional Math Test (only a few sessions, before exam)
-Olympiad (2 months, over the summer)
-Oxford & Imperial admission test- MAT (privately and during the summer of 2020 via Imperial)
-University (about 25-30 sessions, with Maths/CS majors from Birkbeck, Imperial, Leeds, Manchester, UCL)
-First year tutor at Imperial College London (9 months)
-Graduate teaching assistant: Stochastic simulation, Markov processes and Applied probability courses

I feel my ability of teaching is best reflected at highscool, university admission tests / university level. I have an excellent understanding of Mathematics (supported by my results at Imperial College, where I scored in top 5%), which allows to me draw connections between fields and explain concepts in easier terms. I am positive this helps me instill a sense of confidence in my tutees.

Nevertheless, I have extensive experience tutoring at other levels too and I always try to match individual needs.

Tutoring Approach

I strongly believe teaching should be a guided self-education and not anything else. I am happy to provide articles or materials for my tutees and work through them together or even better, give the materials in advance such that we spend our time better with harder questions. This way, there is some kind of natural learning ability that makes us feel more interested about maths ( or any field in general).

Unfortunately, I do not offer free trial sessions.
