## Personal Description:

Maths is my second language, if not the first! With a first class honours degree from Edinburgh University, I further studied maths at Cambridge to master level.

Now I am running a startup in London. I keep on tutoring during my spare time, because I like to share my insights on scientific subjects, and glad to help students to build their confidence in studies. Moreover, I do believe tutoring is a two way communications, and I have learnt a lot from my students as well. They span from GCSE to my classmates at uni , all the way up to graduate students from Imperial College. Best of all, I became friends with them after tutoring.

Moreover, I have been involved in a charity project on education, and I would like to build my experience in this area regardless what my day job is.

By the way, if you want to try Mandarin, I am more than happy to help:)

## Tutoring Experience:

I believe tutoring is a two way communication, and I have learnt a lot from my students as well. They span from GCSE to my classmates at uni , all the way up to graduate students from Imperial College. Best of all, I became friends with them after tutoring.

The whole learning process is structured and organised. Thirdly, when specific questions are discussed, in addition to cover the general points, I would emphize the points that he/she is struggling with. And always try to guide student’s thought process so that they can think of the solutions independently thereafter. Last but not least, when I summerize a subject, I would always try to link the syllabus in a more intuitive way, so that students will be more comfortable and confident with the subject.

Some of the modules I have taught:

General Relativity

## Tutoring Approach:

1) Not only do I know how, but I fully grasped why as well.

2) I would first and foremost try to understand student’s difficulties and objectives out of the tuitions. And then propose a bespoke tuition outline for the student to agree, so that the whole learning process is structured and organised. Thirdly, when specific questions are discussed, in addition to cover the general points, I would emphize the points that he/she is struggling with. And always try to guide student’s thought process so that they can think of the solutions independently thereafter. Last but not least, when I summerize a subject, I would always try to link the syllabus in a more intuitive way, so that students will be more comfortable and confident with the subject.

**Reply from Xuan:**Thank you Garima! It's been a pleasure working with you on the hardcore maths. You will thrive in your future career! Wish you all the best!

Xuan

**From Alison ( /5):**

*(University Maths)*Excellent teacher, gives great support for students and very easy to work with. Would highly recommend.

**Reply from Xuan:**Thank you Alison for the feedback. I am glad that Irene has got a FIRST at last,which exceeded her expectation. She is such a polite and bright student. Wish you guys all the best!

**From Juan ( /5):**

*(GCSE Maths)*Xuan is completely fluent in Maths! You won't need an answer book because she'll be able to work out at least two ways to solve most questions.

I'd definitely study with her again

**Reply from Xuan:**Juan, your motivation is extraordinary, and it's always nice talking maths with you.

**From Robin ( /5):**

*(A-Level Maths)*Xuan has helped my son revise for his Mechanics modules for A level Mathematics. She is highly organised and an excellent tutor. Mechanics is not an easy topic to cover but she has managed to increase my son's confidence considerably. I would definitely recommend Xuan.

**Reply from Xuan:**Thanks Robin! George is a bright boy, and I enjoyed tutoring him as well :)

From Garima (5/5):(University Maths)Xuan tutored me very well for my final year exams of a maths degree - I hardly understood any of the concepts at first but she was patient and explained things well. She was also kind enough to continue tutoring me online during unsociable hours when I had gone back to university and was busy during the day. I would highly recommend her as she is an excellent tutor and committed to her students’ improvement.Scored a first in almost all of the modules she tutored me in when I was only getting 2:2 grades before.
