It was a really good lesson, he was very well prepared and explained things clearly. He was also well organised and had specification points to tick off after the lesson. Overall a really good lesson which helped me to understand a topic that I had been struggling with.

Maths with Oliver T

Kind and Enthusiastic Tutor

5.0

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.
