Personal Description:

I graduated from the University of Cambridge with a BA and MMath in Mathematics, before starting a Theoretical Physics PhD at the University of Liverpool, where I wrote a thesis about black holes, string theory, and the mathematics that underlies them. After postdoctoral work which took me to South Korea and Germany, I am now working for a London-based startup applying statistical techniques to try to predict outcomes in football matches.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been providing private tuition in London since April 2016, with a focus on A-level Maths/Further Maths, and mathematics modules in undergraduate courses, e.g. Physics, Engineering, Economics. Before this I worked as a Tutorial Assistant during my PhD, running problem classes for various mathematics modules at the University of Liverpool. In addition, I have experience in tutoring students studying for Oxbridge entrance exams.

Tutoring Approach:

For many students, higher level maths can be a daunting subject. One of the advantages of tuition above the regular teaching environment is that the tutor is able to improve a student's performance not just by helping them with the technical aspects of answering a problem, but also with things such as the way that they set out their solution.

My experience is that students benefit enormously by being able to clearly articulate both what they're trying to achieve and why they're taking each step in a solution. Maths is fundamentally a logical subject, and I aim to get students to a stage where each step in a solution becomes the "natural" thing to do, giving them the confidence to tackle much more involved problems than they otherwise would.

I believe that it's important to let students figure out not just "why does this method work?" but also "why wouldn't this other method work?", which means providing an environment where they're comfortable testing their own ideas.
