Personal Description:

A tutor who offers GCSE and A-level tuition in mathematics (including further mathematics). I also offer tuition for students taking STEP papers.

I'm originally from Sheffield, where I did A-levels in Mathematics, Further Mathematics and History (all A grade) at Loxley College (now Sheffield College). I was an undergraduate at the University of Bath, where I obtained a masters in Mathematical Sciences (MMath: 2:1) a second masters in Mathematical Biology (MSc, merit) and a PhD in Mathematical Biology.

I have very fond memories of my GCSE's and A-levels, and try to inject all of my lessons with energy to get my students equally enthused. My students find me easy to get on with, and I've developed a strong working relationship with all of them.

Tutoring Experience:

I have extensive knowledge of both the GCSE and A-Level syllabi, all the way up to STEP papers. I've taught the entire A2 course in A-Level Mathematics and Further Mathematics, and have also tutored many other taking a range of different courses, under a range of different exam boards.

I have experience at the University of Bath teaching mathematical modelling and mathematical biology, meaning that I am experienced in teaching PhD level mathematics to a non-expert audience.

When at university, I was heavily involved in the Latin and Ballroom Dancing club, and taught both small classes and one-to-one basis on a weekly basis as well.

Tutoring Approach:

During my A-Levels, I was completely self taught in both mathematics and further mathematics, as the college I attended didn't offer the qualification. Without a teacher, I had to develop certain strategies to succeed, such as self-reliance, self-confidence, and the self-motivation, which have served me well through my masters and doctorate. When I teach, these are the habits I try to pass on to my students, because when you're sat in the examination room and the clock's ticking, you only have yourself to rely on.

The next most important thing is practise. I try to drill my students in answering as many past paper questions as I can. Although this can be daunting to begin with, becoming expert at answering past exam questions can be one of the most exciting and rewards aspects of the process. For those who want the best, there is no substitute for hard work.

I recommend that those who are seeking tutors find them as early in the academic year as they possibly can. It's vital to develop the good working habits early in the academic year, because cramming in the few weeks before the exams is worth much less than spreading the effort over the entire year.
