Jacob offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
I am a full time professional tutor and graduate of Imperial College London where I received a BSc in Physics. Maths is the language of the sciences and understanding it is critical. I like to get students excited about science by developing not only students' understanding of maths but also their appreciation of it.
I like to swim, cook, hike, exercise, read (history, philosophy, autobiographies and spirituality) and travel.
I have tutored maths for over 7 years and physics for 6 years gaining over 2000 hours of experience. My experience includes:
7 years of one-to-one GCSE maths tuition and 6 years of one-to-one A level maths and further maths tuition.
6 years of one-to-one A level physics tuition. During this time, I have become very familiar with all specifications and a wide range of helpful books and other resources. For the past couple of years, I have been writing my own exam style questions to help students make the transition from the more straight forward questions found in most books to the less obvious questions found in the exam papers.
3 years of tutoring GCSE sciences both one-to-one and on a small classroom basis.
In addition to working as an independent tutor, I was head hunted to work for one of north London's most respected tutoring agencies.
A term working as a voluntary assistant teacher of A level maths and physics.
My approach to tutoring is systematic and highly organised. When I first meet a tutee, I find out where the student stands with respect to the specification of their course. I always consult the specification to keep lessons focused and make sure that all relevant subject material is discussed carefully. I emphasize the importance of understanding and appreciating the relevant information.
I am patient and capable of developing a multilateral approach tailored to the student's need. I tutor with enthusiasm, patience and a calm manor. Tutoring is something I have always enjoyed and am willing to go the extra mile for.

Jacob knows his subjects well and had done all necessary background research into the Examination Board modules that he was taking and their requirements, prior to teaching our son, so that he knew exactly what needed to be taught and what the Board were looking for.
Jacob is an excellent teacher. He creates a wonderful rapport with his pupil and sustains a kind, gentle and generous attitude during the lessons. He was encouraging and yet firm enough to retain discipline and order. Lessons were structured properly and there was a plan and outcome to each session. Jacob was also extremely courteous and helpful when explaining to us, his parents, what he had taught that session and what additional work would be necessary as practice.
During the school holidays we asked Jacob for an intensive programme to essentially go through the entire syllabus for Maths and Physics. Jacob prepared a full set of guidance notes which our son found most helpful, and he arranged the learning days in such a way as to maximise time and effectiveness and we were all very grateful. They were long days and yet much was learned.
We would thoroughly recommend Jacob as a Maths and Physics tutor.
My son says 'Jacob gave me the confidence to progress further with maths even when I thought I couldn't'.
