Personal Description:

Hello, I’ve just finished a 1 year masters course in mathematics at Cambridge university although I began my undergraduate studies with an adventure to Nottingham to study medicine. I graduated from Nottingham in 2006 but during my first year of work rethought my career plan and decided to switch to maths. I completed my first year as a junior doctor (the ‘F1’ year) and then returned to Newcastle to study maths. I graduated top of my year from Newcastle's 4 year maths masters program with a first class honours degree in June 2014. After spending a year tutoring maths I went to Cambridge to do the 1 year masters (part III, focussing mainly on algebra and number theory) which I successfully completed. Having done 2 degrees I'm no stranger to studying and exams and after finishing my course I thought it would be fun to spend some time tutoring in a subject I love.

Tutoring Experience:

I began tutoring in the university’s maths drop in service ‘Maths Aid’ in 2014 after taking a 2 day course on tutoring provided by the university. Over the following summer holiday and academic year I tutored undergraduate students in both engineering and statistics as well as tutoring students for A-levels and GCSEs in mathematics. I also spent some of my time in Nottingham teaching medical students practical skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a relaxed, friendly approach to tutoring. I normally find that working through examples helps to both reinforce the material and to suggest new topics to discuss and practice but if you prefer a different approach to learning I'd be happy to discuss that with you. I don't enforce homework, however, I definitely think you should be doing some practice in between the sessions to get the most out of tuition so if you would like some extra work set to supplement the work set by your school/university I'd be happy to do that and review it with you.
