Ellesmere Port Tutor

Since completing my doctoral studies in applied maths at University of Kaiserslautern, Germany, in collaboration with Fraunhofer ITWM, I have built an active and successful academical career, combining applied mathematics with computer science. My main interest are multidisciplinary projects, which mix skills and techniques from different fields into a common goal to find efficient and reliable solutions. I have a strong belief in the use of applied mathematics and scientific computing to model and investigate real-life issues, and am convinced that it represents an efficient and effective way of extending our knowledge and improving techniques in a range of applications.

Tutoring Experience

With more than nine years of teaching at academic level at Bangor University, Oxford Brookes University and University of Chester and more than twelve at different levels, including private tutoring, I have an extensive experience in subjects like GCSE and A-Level maths, applied maths, physics, probability and statistics, econometrics, mathematical modelling and simulation, computer vision and graphics, image processing, information and scientific visualization, data exploration and visual analytics, numerical methods and iterative algorithms, programming, graphic design and web technologies, and computational fluid dynamics.

Tutoring Approach

My main teaching goal is to continuously involve learners into the taught subjects by using plenty of exercises and real-life examples, enhancing their ability to focus and understand the topic better. From my experience I discovered that students react very favourable to tasks and assignments which challenge and allow them to express their creativity and interest. Moreover, in my teaching I tend to use modern methods and online available resources, continuously modifying and improving my materials, aspects which attract students’ interest and makes them engage more in the learning process. Over the past years I have developed and improved my online teaching skills, receiving favourable feedback from my tutees.
