Personal Description:

I have a First Class degree in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge and a wealth of experience sharing my passion for maths with students, achieving excellent results. Over the past eight years I have tutored students from a wide variety of ages and abilities, from those struggling with the course, to talented students who can be offered further challenges.

Tutoring Experience:

Over the past eight years I have gained extensive experience of helping students achieve success at all levels, including receiving offers from top independent schools and Cambridge University. I specialise in A-level, IB and pre-U tuition, having a thorough knowledge of the different syllabuses, exam formats, concepts and methods. I have experience of offering private 1-1 tuition in the following areas:

· 11+ Maths independent school entrance exams
· 13+ Maths independent school entrance exams
· (I)GCSE Maths: Edexcel, OCR, CIE and AQA
· 16+ Maths grammar and independent school entrance exams
· AS / A2 Maths and Further Maths: C1-C4, M1-M5, S1-S2, D1, FP1-FP3: Edexcel, OCR, MEI, AQA
· IB Maths Higher
· Oxbridge applications: Interview preparation, MAT and PAT entrance exams, STEP and AEA
· Undergraduate: Fundamentals of Mathematics for Engineering (Teesside University), Engineering Mathematics
and Modelling (London South Bank University), Mathematics for Economists (Kings College London)
· Postgraduate: Maths for Computer Science (UCL)
· Adult Learner: QTS Numeracy, Numerical Reasoning, casual learner

I have hundreds of hours’ experience working with students in regular weekly lessons to complement their studies, in small study groups and short term focused revision or interview preparation. I find that the sooner gaps in knowledge and understanding can be addressed the better so that in the build up to exams the focus can shift to past paper practice. I have also worked with talented students who are looking for an extra challenge, tailoring a programme of study for them that goes beyond what they would learn at school.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is driven by the student. I believe that with a base understanding of core concepts and the self-confidence to employ them, every student is capable of academic success. I work collaboratively with parents and pupils to produce a programme of study which is tailored to the needs of the individual student, set goals and structure the tuition.

I am passionate and enthusiastic about learning and teaching and bring this positive outlook to every lesson. I make my lessons fun and engaging, introducing core theoretical concepts and working with students to apply these to problems. I encourage my students to ask questions, try things out and think out loud. I set homework which is then discussed the following week.

I am patient, empathic and have a good intuitive understanding of how and why students may not understand something. This enables me to communicate complex, abstract ideas in a simple, accessible way that ‘clicks’ with the student.
