As someone with experience guiding students through activities that range from undergraduate Maths modules to choirs and orchestras, I have the patience and ability needed to connect with my students and find the best way to improve their understanding, tailored to them. My invested interest in both the sciences and the arts allows me to devise new ways of explaining various theories and find a common ground with students. My interests include composing, theatre, golf and rugby.
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 an enthusiastic tutor from London, currently reading Ancient History at King's College London and predicted to graduate with First Class Honours.

During my two years of tutoring, my students have achieved As and A*s in all of their exams and have been to gain places on various prestigious internships. During my time at university, I have secured internships at Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg LP, Sabre Fund Management ( a London based hedge fund). I was the best novice speaker and the semi-finalist of London's largest debating competition - SOAS IV, hold committee positions at various societies, including my university's investment fund. I am responsible and committed to helping others reach their academic potential and grow.
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.
Hi, I’m Dharani! I am a third year medical student at King’s College London. I have been a tutor for 3 years, teaching maths and science up to A-Level. In addition to my 3 years of tutoring, I have experience as school mentor, helping a group of Year 12 students with their AS Biology during lunchtimes. The Sessions: Before the session, it would be helpful if you could let me know what you would like to cover. At the start, I will give you a topic overview and then we can do some exam questions to find out which areas need more work and to develop a good exam technique. I will try to be enthusiastic and make the session enjoyable so that you will be more engaged and therefore grasp the concepts better. I'm applying to medical school - can you help me? Yes! I have been through the application process and am familiar with how intense and demanding it can be! I hope I can impart some of my knowledge and advice to reduce the stresses of your university application and hopefully enable you to go into the process feeling a little more clued up.
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.
