Information About Lewis - Ellesmere Port tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Lewis:
Hi, my name is Lewis and I am a university lecturer in mathematics with particular expertise in actuarial mathematics, probability theory and statistics. I have completed a PhD in Actuarial Mathematics and a Masters degree in Mathematics (First Class) at the University of Liverpool. Although my current position is within the area of Financial and Actuarial Mathematics, my own education during my undergraduate and masters degrees covered a broad range of mathematical topics.
I am currently the module leader and lead lecturer for three degree level mathematical statistics courses entitled: Statistical Modelling, Linear Modelling and Multivariate Statistics. Prior to this position, I was employed as a lecturer for two Masters level courses as part of the Financial and Actuarial Mathematics Masters degree programme. In addition, during my PhD studies I was employed as a general teaching assistant providing tuition for a broad range of mathematics modules, including pure mathematics, applied probability and financial/actuarial mathematics.
Due to the nature of the algorithmic techniques within mathematics, I encourage a very practical approach which involves solving as many problems as possible until the method (and theory) are fully understood. In my opinion, simply being able to answer the question in order to pass an exam is not enough. By understanding the theory behind the problem, you build confidence in your abilities to tackle many different types of the problem, even if it deviates from the standard style of question.
