I recently graduated from Oxford University with a high First Class master's degree in mathematics and am going on to further research in the United States next year. I have always enjoyed tutoring on a casual basis, and since researching maths is a sadly underpaid vocation I thought I would formalise this.
My maths course at Oxford covered a broad spectrum of topics across both applied and pure maths. Topics included: algebra, differential equations, analysis, fluid dynamics, functional analysis, probability, statistics, and mechanics. I am well qualified to help students prepare for GCSEs, A-levels and equivalent qualifications (IB etc.), university entrance tests and university-level maths.
I AM CURRENTLY OFFERING SKYPE TUITION ONLY There is a 50% discount on the first hour, and my timings are very flexible - we can choose a slot that suits you.
I have taught maths on a casual basis to friends, extended family, and other students at my college. This tuition has spanned everything from GCSE to university-level maths. This has given me a good breadth of experience in teaching people of differing age, ability and motivation.
I have also taught in a more formal environment. I was a volunteer teacher in a special-needs school in Dubai for six months, helping quite young students with a variety of learning difficulties.
As someone who has lived in India, Dubai and Russia (as well as the United Kingdom) I consider myself pretty international, and am very experienced in working with tutees from a wide range of backgrounds. I appreciate the benefits that an international education can bring.
The fact that many of my tutees so far have been acquaintances has shaped the way in which I approach tutoring. I avoid a hierarchal student-teacher dynamic, and place great importance on helping students discover their own potential. While I can "teach to the test", I also try to aid students as they develop their own knowledge and analytical skills. I firmly believe that there are no "stupid questions": often what seem to be the very simplest questions can be much more complex than they first appear, and answering and unpacking them can be a very valuable thing to do. I encourage a very interactive tuition experience, with a lot of student questions: this is what best helps tutees to learn, and in a meaningful, long-lasting way.
