I am currently in the second year of my PhD in pure mathematics at the London School of Geometry and Number Theory (Imperial, UCL, and King's). Before that, I was an undergraduate at the University of Queensland, Australia, where I earned a Bachelor of Science with Honours Class I with an extended major in Mathematics. I also have a Diploma of Languages majoring in German, and spent a year of my undergraduate degree studying in Munich. As an undergraduate, I gained a variety of experience from both private tutoring and teaching in university environments for students ranging from high school to undergraduate level. Before I began university I did a gap year working for a prep school in Surrey, where I primarily helped students between the ages of 8 and 13 who were struggling in class and/ or being disruptive. I also helped prepare students for the 11 and 13+ exams. I believe that mathematics is an under-appreciated discipline, and I have a passion for teaching maths in an intuitive and relatable way that applies real-world examples. I have ample experience in communicating complicated ideas to students of all abilities and in guiding students to their own understanding.
I am a respiratory physiologist working in paediatric medicine with a masters degree in Human and Applied Physiology from King’s College London. I also possess a first-class honours degree in Sport and Exercise Science. Between my two degrees I travelled to different parts of world to places such as the USA and Cameroon. This gave me the opportunity to learn about different cultures and a stronger ability to overcome challenges when they presented themselves. I am looking for tutoring opportunities across London in zones 1-6. While doing my undergraduate and masters, I have developed an in-depth knowledge and understanding of several scientific areas, with a focus on physiology. I believe that I can impart my enthusiasm for education and science on younger students and help them succeed academically. My mission is to make the goals that students are striving for a reality and see the success they have earnt take them to their chapter. I am very motivated, driven individual and I will work to ensure each session is beneficial bringing the goals set out closer to fruition.
Hi, my name is Mohamed and I'm a graduate from UCL with a degree in Physics and I have 4 years experience tutoring A Level maths. Throughout my work as a tutor, I've noticed that many students lack the understanding of where certain concepts in maths that they learn in school come from, which in turn usually leads them to not being able to pick out important information in questions that they may find in their exams. This sets the foundation of how I approach tutoring. So I always take time to explain what the purpose is of performing a certain mathematical calculation. I also believe that its very important for students to be interested in the subjects that they're learning. I personally still love seeing how maths and physics is used in the real world and this is something I like to share with the students I tutor to help them develop an appreciation for the subject that they're learning.
I am currently a 2nd year BSc Economics undergraduate at University College London who has achieved a First Class in the first year. My course entails mostly Maths and I have taken Maths and Further Maths A-Level. I have experience teaching Pure and Further Pure Mathematics, Statistics and Mechanics modules. During my gap year I was employed full time by a leading sixth form as the Maths Workshop Tutor. I taught 20, 90 minute, timetabled classes a week for A Level students who required additional support in their Mathematics studies. This entailed going over the syllabus and helping students to improve their exam technique. I enjoyed providing the support and encouragement my students needed in order to achieve their best. I use my own experience as a student to explain concepts to my students in a way that is accessible. I also privately tutored students outside of my employment at the college. I can gage exactly what my students need and help to give them that extra push to achieve their best. A private tutee of mine ended up achieving an A* with his hard work and my help after his teacher only predicted him a B/C grade! I hope to inspire and encourage my students to believe in themselves.
I graduated earlier this year with a high 2.i in Physical Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge. I am an experienced Science and Maths tutor up to degree level, I have experience teaching children with Speech Language and Communication needs, and I tutor for Oxbridge Personal Statements and entrance exams. I therefore have a vast amount of experience teaching children of all ages and abilities, and in a wide range of subjects (Maths, Science, Music). I find teaching and educating incredibly rewarding, and believe every student has the potential to achieve. I had the privilege of being a member of the National Youth Orchestra for two years, with my second year being spent as the co-principal second violinist. During my time with the NYO I played in two BBC Proms performances, and worked with world-renowned conductors such as Sir Mark Elder, John Wilson, Ed Gardner, Ilan Volkov, Paul Daniels, and Francois Xavier-Roth. The repertoire ranged from immense symphonic works such as Mahler’s 5th and 9th Symphonies, to groundbreaking new works by Unsuk Chin and Anna Meredith. Teaching Experience I have been tutoring for Science and Maths since my second year of A-levels. I have found that my pupils achieve their best when they feel comfortable expressing themselves and asking questions about the subject. I see teaching as a two-way process and pride myself on ensuring my pupils are empowered to do this. My most recent GCSE Maths student managed to increase his grade from a level 5 to a level 8/9 in the period he was working with me. I am currently employed part time in a North London Secondary School and Sixth Form, where I work in the SEN department as a Science and Maths specialist. This has given me a great deal of experience in teaching children with ADHD, Autism, and Dyslexia. I also run the Science and Maths clubs at the school, where I take learning beyond the curriculum. For three years I have been working as an Oxbridge Interview Preparation and Personal Statement Advisor at my old Sixth Form College, BHASVIC. In this time I have built up a wealth of experience of the Oxbridge Application Process, including the newly introduced admissions tests for Natural Sciences (NSAA). In this time BHASVIC has maintained its status as having the highest Oxbridge application success rate of all state schools in the country. Having taught 20+ pupils over 4 years, I am an experienced Piano and Violin teacher, specialising in beginner-intermediate level. “My daughter often felt daunted by new or tricky pieces but Ollie’s kind and patient approach really helped her to grow in confidence. She got a distinction in her Grade 1 exam so it definitely worked!” – Lucy Foy, mother of Esme, Piano Pupil.
I am currently studying Biochemistry at University of Oxford having finished schooling at North London Collegiate School where I gained 45/45 in the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme. I have had previous experience tutoring IB biology, chemistry, English, maths and economics as well as GCSE French, English, maths, biology and chemistry. I believe in altering my teaching style according to the student and have had experience in tutoring a variety of different academic abilities and ages. I am extremely organised and am happy to go above and beyond in regards to preparation and gathering resources to help the student. My experience in tutoring for IB and GCSE means that I am good at ensuring that all parts of the syllabus are covered and that the student is well informed of what’s expected in the exam. One of my IB students was recently admitted to Tufts University in Massachusetts while other students that I am currently tutoring for SAT are currently applying for numerous highly ranked American Universities.
I am a trained professional physicist, having studied at both undergraduate and graduate levels at two of the worlds leading universities, and currently working as a radiotherapy physicist in an NHS hospital cancer treatment centre. I have 6 years experience in tutoring in physics and mathematics one-to-one and in small groups, with students of primary school age through to university undergraduates. I also have one year of experience working as a TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) instructor to Japanese students. As a professional physicist I am highly skilled and knowledgeable not only in physics, but also mathematics, statistics, computer programming and IT systems. I take a keen interest in all areas of science, and can confidently tutor in all of these subjects up to A-level. I have always been fascinated by science, and as a high school student was initially interested in studying medicine. Unfortunately, I found myself feeling faint at the sight of blood and guts, and doubts as to my suitability for the profession began to creep into my mind. I had an amazing physics teacher at A-level, who inspired me to instead pursue physics at university. I excelled in my undergraduate studies and then progressed on to PhD level overseas, where I undertook fundamental research in experimental nuclear physics. This involved smashing atoms together using a particle accelerator in order to understand the properties of nuclear matter, reactions such as nuclear fusion and nuclear fission, as well as to synthesise new 'superheavy' chemical elements that do not exist in nature! Funnily enough, my experience working with particle accelerators, electronics, and radiation detector technology lends itself very handily to working in the healthcare sector, both in the treatment of cancer using high energy X-rays, and in various diagnostic imaging techniques using both ionising and non-ionising radiation. So I have now come more or less full circle from my high school ambitions to work in medicine, except now I get to avoid the blood and guts! During my GCSE years, in fact I really didn't enjoy physics due to poor teaching at school, and strongly considered not taking the subject at A-level- I only did so reluctantly in the belief that it would aid my application for medicine. Without the excellent teaching that was provided by my A-level teacher, I am sure I would have followed a very different and perhaps less satisfying path. When I tell people I am a physicist, I often receive replies of 'Oh wow! You must be so smart!' Many people struggle with physics and maths in school, and are highly intimidated by the subject. What if I told you that physics, based upon the fundamental rules of nature, is in fact the easiest subject in science? It is my goal as a tutor to transform their perception of physics from an intimidating subject that must be endured throughout school and then never thought of again, to a way of thinking and a toolbox of skills that will be useful for their future in many aspects of life. In tutoring in my subject I hope that I can instill a curious interest in the fundamental aspects of nature such as my favourite teacher did for me, as well as keeping my own understanding of physical principles and teaching skills sharp for use in my science career.
"I just wanted to say thank you for your tutoring for my A level exams. I ended up achieving an A* in maths" "I am going to Warwick university as I had hoped. ... S2 was one of my best exams, I got a high A up from a C last year. Thank you very much for all your help, I don't think I'd be going to the Uni I wanted without you!" The foregoing statements are taken from emails which I received from students or their parents this year. I have found that because I am very patient I can create an atmosphere in which people feel free to ask when they do not understand, both in a group and in an individual setting. There have been a few cases over the years when some people have only needed a few sessions because just one or two things were getting in their way and they had not felt able to ask about them when in a class. I started out teaching GCSE mathematics in a private tutorial college in Wales 1987-1988. After that I returned to my home town and started giving tuition here in September 1988. I get about half of my students on recommendation. Every student who has come to me to resit the GCSE has obtained at least a grade C or the new equivalent. Many of my students have obtained grade A* at GCSE or A level. In 1997 I graduated with first class honours in mathematics from Goldsmiths College London where I won the Stanley Hails Prize. From 2009-2017 I taught maths from GCSE to Further Mathematics A Level AEA and STEP at an academy in Essex. I will always answer queries between lessons by email. I do not cover Decision Mathematics or Modelling With Algorithms at A level.
Hello, I’m a graduate of Brunel University with a BSc in International Business. I teach Maths, Economics and Business studies and have taught over 100 students of ages 11-21. I’ve been teaching for the last five years throughout my studies and am now a full time tutor. I am young, fun and friendly, keeping my lessons relatable and engaging for my students. I focus on applying knowledge to exam technique as this can sometimes be the most challenging part of the course! I make sure to spend plenty of time showing students how to plan answers to achieve maximum marks - I have a brilliant structure which students can easily use for any essay based questions. I tailor my tuition to suit the student, maintaining a comfortable pace whilst challenging the student to reach their full potential and build confidence in the subject. It's important to keep lessons fun so I use a range of activities and "real life" examples relating to the course to make sure the student can enjoy learning the subject as much as possible.
