Daniel

Cobham Tutor

Hi! My name's Dan and I teach maths and science, having graduated with a first-class Master's degree in Natural Sciences (biology, chemistry, maths) from University of Cambridge in 2011.

Before university, I passed the 11+ to attend Tiffin School in Surrey from 2000 to 2007. Academic highlights include 11 A*s at GCSE (including a top-ten ranking in GCSE physics from 5338 candidates and 99% in GCSE maths); three As at A level (maths, chemistry, biology); a Gold Medal in the Junior, Intermediate, and Senior UK Maths Challenges; an Advanced Extension Award in Biology with Distinction; and a Gold medal in the British Biology Olympiad.

I am friendly, down-to-earth, and patient. One of my main strengths is my ability to teach maths and all three sciences to a high level. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me and I will get back to you ASAP!

Tutoring Experience

I am a full-time tutor, with hundreds of hours of teaching experience. Whilst at Cambridge I taught maths to small classes at the Oxbridge Tuition Centre in Surrey, and since graduating I have had hundreds of my own lessons teaching maths and all three sciences. I am pleased to say that I have helped to achieve lots of great results and make lots of parents very happy along the way!

Tutoring Approach

I am fully committed to all of my students, building great relationships and making every effort to be there for them when they need my help. As just one example of this, if any of my students have technical questions on homework or anything else in between lessons they are free to contact me for help.

I am generous with motivation and praise - I focus on building confidence and stimulating interest as much as teaching itself. I teach so that my students can understand, rather than just recall, what they are being taught. Time permitting, I teach from the ground up. As well as teaching subject material, I can advise on general study skills and revision techniques. I have been in the position of taking the same exams very recently myself. I know what it takes and can pass on the soft skills I have picked up along the way. I provide homework on request, the difficulty and length of which can be tailored to individual needs and aspirations.
