I have been working as a Maths tutor since February 2011. At the same time, I have also worked as an external tutor in various London schools. My expertise lies mostly within pure maths, so my main focus is to lay the clear foundations of maths with my students for an extensive and in-depth understanding that can be transferred in any field they choose to study in the future.
I am also in possession of the Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) from the General Teaching Council for England and a member of the Tutor's Association.
Have been working as a maths tutor for pupils taking GCSE, IGCSE, A-levels and undergraduates, for the past six years.
Modules covered include: for A-levels, C1-C4, FP1-FP4, S1-S2, M1-M2; and university subject areas, Analysis, Calculus, Linear Algebra, Analytic/Differential Geometry, Probability, (1st year) Statistics.

Tuition during the past period has been mostly face to face, with individual students or groups. It was only last year that I attempted to expand my lessons to the online realm. And it was not in vain.
I have had pupils from all over UK that were looking for the best fit of a tutor, or university students that studied in London but wanted help even when away (during reading weeks, holidays etc). Thus, I have now shifted my focus to online tuition and I'm trying to provide the most suitable environment not only digital with the necessary learning tools and aids, but also in terms of learning styles for each individual student.
"I like Panos' way of teaching as he guided me to get closer to the answer with great patience instead of giving me the answer. He also knows where I get stuck and he gives clear explanation to clear the confusion I have! Thank you!"
"Very happy with Panos as a tutor, definitely one of the best decisions I have made. He makes things nice and easy to understand and this is by far the most comfortable online learning experience I've had. Helped me get an A* predicted for my undergraduate foundation programme!"
"I am studying and require maths as part of my bachelors’ degree. My tutor is quick in giving me what is needed. I want to thank him, because he goes above and beyond with his help. Our sessions are online and are very effective."
I'm very friendly and passionate with what I do. I'm enthusiastic with teaching and maths and trying to pass this feeling to my students as well. Maths is not plainly something you have to learn but something fun you can learn. Of course we all care about grades but what counts most at the end of the day is the new mindset you have acquired, upon which you can carry on building within any discipline.
As for my tutoring method, I strive to create a well balanced relationship with pupils. I set clear targets for my students and expect them to develop throughout our sessions. Additionally, I emphasize on the suitable approach for each individual in order to have the best results possible. Finally, I consider humour an essential part of my sessions as it creates a better learning environment and a more enjoyable session.
