Ex Cambridge & LSE Maths and Statistics teacher

With over 3000 hrs experience tutoring students from all the top UK universities, I have helped over 200 students improve their grades.
I have taught classes at Cambridge, LSE, and Kings College London, and to schoolchildren in Southwark. I have also marked exams for the LSE.

I have a Ph.D. (LSE), M.Sc. (Kings) & B.Sc. (Queen Mary) in mathematics, as well as a professional qualification from the Royal Statistical Society. The result of this is that I have extensive knowledge of many areas of maths and statistics. I have also completed 2 short teacher training courses, but most of my teaching skills come from experience.

I can help you with mathematics, statistics, econometrics, operational research, financial maths, and computer programming.
I teach mostly university students (both undergraduate & postgraduate), but can also teach A-level and GCSE.

I give clear and in depth explanations, and show different ways to approach problems.
- What are degrees of freedom exactly?
- What is a p-value?
- Why do we divide by n-1 instead of n?
These are the kinds of questions that are often not well explained in university lectures. I can help you get a clearer picture of the fundamental concepts and theories.

I also believe it is important to focus on the core skills of algebraic manipulation. I will work through problems with you, showing you the tricks you need to know to solve problems faster.

Finally, over the years I have amassed a large collection of lecture notes and past papers from the various maths and statistics courses of different UK Universities (Cambridge, Oxford, LSE, Durham, City, CASS, UCL, Imperial, Kings college, and many more), and have also written revision notes for my students.
I can provide you with relevant exercises and revision notes to help prepare you for your exams.
