Hi, my name is Luke and I am a graduate from UCL with a degree in Math. I have been building up my math tutoring experience throughout my studies since A-level. I helped my friends, classmates and family members understand complex or new mathematical terms and concepts by simplifying and explaining the logic behind them. When people approach me with math problems, I always think from their perspective to find out the gap in their understanding. Then I can better help them in learning and comprehending the logic and principles of maths. Furthermore, whenever I learn a new operator or concept, such as Laplacian operator or divergence, I prefer to understand their geometrical meaning and intuitive interpretation. I believe this approach will inspire my candidates and stimulates their interests in maths and physics. Regarding exams, practice to apply the logic and principles to solve problems is indispensable. I am good at summarising techniques and practical methods to help others crack maths problems. Practice using these methods with me is easy to get started and to follow in their studies. By understanding maths and practising solving problems with me, tutees can improve their proficiencies in solving maths problems and therefore improving performance at exams. Patience is one of my biggest strengths, and I tailor my lessons to the needs and personality of each tutee and help them succeed. I have a natural passion for teaching and tutoring interactively and intuitively.
I have taught German in schools for over 20 years, which included working with individuals, small and class-size groups of all ages. Having gained first experience in teaching German while working as a British Council Foreign Language Assistant in East Devon, I decided to follow a career in teaching German at secondary and tertiary level. 'Born and bred' in the north of Germany, you will not struggle to understand my accent. I speak - what many people refer to as - „Hochdeutsch” - (Standard German) as spoken in/around/north of Hanover. However, you might notice that I tend to say „Hamburch” rather than „Hamburg”. And of course, I tend to stretch my vowels - all part of being an „echter Norddeutscher”. If you wondered how to pronounce „Sönke", it's a bit like "Z"-"ea" (as in "ea-rly")-"n"-"k"-"ea" (as in "ea-rly"). I am a native speaker and have a BA and a MA degree. Most importantly for language learners, I am a qualified teacher with a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) in teaching secondary German (with French and Geography). I am also a current Assessment Associate for Pearson/Edexcel (GCSE and A Level), an IoLET Affiliate Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists and a Supporter Member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting, studying towards a TransDip. The 2017/2018 examination season was yet another very successful year for my tutees. I do not only keep my 100% pass rate; all my A Level tutees outperformed they predicted grades (based on their 'Mocks') by two grades and my GCSE/IGCSE tutees improved their predicted grades by at least three grades/digits. Many of them outperformed their target grades (where possible) and one of them improved by five grades/digits compared to her predicted '4' ('Mocks').
Back in France, I gave English lessons to aged 11 / 13 when I was at university, between 1983 and 1985. It consisted of help with the homework and finding an answer to questions the pupils had about their school lessons. I strived to get my students motivated about English and would suggest a few simple TV programmes to help with proper English phonetics and develop the vocabulary. Then between 2001 / 2004, while I had been living in England for 6 years onwards, I gave after class French lessons to 11/15 . Plenty of homework involved but also getting very involved with the French cultural and economical life. I would recommend books, find articles in the press and we would discuss those. I also gave extra work to be done using those materials.
