Personal Description:

I am a 22 year old student, studying for a Masters degree in Mathematics at the University of Southampton. My academic history in mathematics is strong ; I was awarded four A* grades in my A - levels (Double maths , Physics , Extended Project) and got over 85% in years 1 and 2 of my degree so far. I hope to become a postgraduate researcher and teach mathematics for a living.

I offer tuition for all GCSE levels and any A - level mathematics material excluding statistics and decision.

I currently tutor at the residence of the pupil, or at a place of their choosing.

Tutoring Experience:

During the spring , summer terms of 2016 , I taught mathematics at a secondary school in groups of 1 - 6 pupils (GCSE and A level). I had to plan all my lessons to suit each individual , often setting my own questions to find their weaknesses. Since then , I have continued to teach individually alongside my studies. This experience is with both teenagers and adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that exam success is down to practice. I have a very large collection of questions, from Foundation GCSE, right the way up to A2 further maths. Some questions are old examination questions and others are self designed, intended to stretch pupils. No mathematician is a stranger to mistakes, but I believe our handling of mistakes plays a role in how good we are at maths. One to one tuition tends to put people under a bright spotlight, so I encourage everyone to try their ideas out, and how to properly go about dealing with potential errors.
