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.
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 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.
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 covering ages 11-21. I’ve been teaching for the last four years throughout my studies. 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.
Hi, I'm Jacob, a graduate with a first class degree in History and a strong background in Maths with an A* at A-Level and a prize in Further Mathematics. My History experience focuses on modern imperial history and I have a strong foundation of many of the GCSE and A-Level History topics. At heart I'm a very curious person with a strong interest in all of the subjects I tutor. I’ve always found it rewarding to be able to help others; over the years I’ve gravitated towards teaching roles, whether it be tuition in school or coaching on the sports field. During my GCSE years, I offered one-to-one Maths mentoring to struggling students aged between 12 and 14. One a weekly basis I spent fifty minute periods working through problem questions and explaining core concepts with pupils. Whilst at University, I also spent time tutoring and providing university admissions assistance. I am proud to say that many of the students that I tutored achieved their subject and university admissions goals. It’s inspiring to be able to help someone else achieve their goals, so when I tutor I aim to take pupils through what they have accomplished, and what could be improved. This way, students become more aware of how they have developed over the course of the lessons, hopefully adding to confidence in their abilities.
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.
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.
As a native French speaker, I am a passionate linguist with a degree in Linguistics and Phonetics with English and Spanish from the University of Lyon III. I have been teaching as a private tutor, and a supply teacher for numerous years now. I have gained invaluable experience in teaching international students at all levels and ages, this includes tutoring privately for clients in London. I am passionate and patient when it comes to teaching. I always tell my students , that they actually know more than they think they do. My methodology is as follows: - Adapting every lesson to the strengths and weaknesses of the student. - Helping to improve understanding and consolidate the fundamentals of learning a foreign language. - Restore the confidence of the student and fill in the gaps with remarkable results. Many of the students I tutored passed their exams successfully. - As a language tutor, my main focus is developing the student’s verbal fluency, I worked with different school years, preparing the students to lay the foundations for GCSE and A level French, English and Spanish . I have been fortunate enough to travel extensively while working as a private tutor (Switzerland, Greece, Spain, UAE, England). Each destination has left me with a plethora of linguistic skills and invaluable knowledge of each society and the culture within.
I'm currently in my fourth year reading Medicine at University College London (UCL). Having achieved a 1st class honours award in Medical Sciences with Immunology, Infection and Cell Pathology last year along with a certificate of distinction for my examination results, I aim to pass on my excitement and passion to anyone I teach. I specialise in Maths, Chemistry and Biology; GCSE, A-Level and Pre-U. As an academic prefect and debating president at Marlborough College, I tutored primary school students debating skills and encouraged them to start developing the skill of critical thinking. On a less formal setting I tutored younger students in my boarding house in subjects such as Maths, Geography and the Sciences. At UCL I have been a mentor for first year students, helping them not only in challenging parts of the Medicine course, but also looking after them in a pastoral setting. On top of this I am also a member of the Medical Society committee in charge of organising a mock clinical exam (mOCAPE). This entailed organising mock clinical stations for over 150 students, as well as examining some of these students and then giving them feedback and tutoring on how they can improve. My 12 A*s at GCSE point to my ability to teach most subjects, especially those where exam technique is key in achieving first class results. As a medic I naturally have a particular passion for Biology and the Sciences, along with Mathematics (I am currently undergoing a Mathematics course within my degree). Complementing this, I have excelled in medical entrance exams (BMAT and UKCAT) and medical interviews, plus I can offer tailored UCAS advice for any subject.
