Allow me to help you learn better from my experiences

As a Mathematics Scholar and PGCE graduate from King's College London, I believe I can inspire many students to see their education as something more than a mere set of instructions that need to be followed.

I believe that learning is an art and should be treated as so. People learn differently, but a good indicator that someone has learned something is their being able to not only replicate what they have been told for themselves, but also use that knowledge to go one step further and apply what they have learned to harder problems (particularly in Maths). When learning anything, it is important to understand the fundamental principles as these are the building blocks that will enable you to integrate these concepts, develop fluency and allow you to take on more miscellaneous problems.

Excellent Tutor

Joy has helped me massively in Mathematics. I struggled in my first academic year at university but Joy’s tutoring in my second year helped me gain more confidence and increase my understanding of the course.
Joy throughout the two years I have known him has shown himself to be an exceptional tutor and someone who is very reliable. On the occasions where I have lacked motivation or wanted to give up Joy has always been patient with me and encouraged me to keep trying. Joy has excellent communication skills, which have allowed him to always manage to effectively explain advanced mathematics in a way that is much easier to understand. Joy has not only helped me understand difficult mathematical concepts but also increased my confidence in myself and my capabilities. The enthusiasm with which Joy teaches also made the sessions in which he has tutored me much more enjoyable and it is clear how passionate he is about mathematics and how much he truly enjoys helping.

In my first academic year I attained a low 2.2 while in my second with Joy's help I was just a couple percent short of a 1st which I now believe I am capable of achieving because of Joy.

Great Tutor!

Joy is one of the nicest people you will ever meet! He helped me throughout my first year at University with all of my maths modules, even ones he didn't do himself and volunteered his time whenever I had any questions, no matter what time! He was so good at explaining things and making it easier to understand. I would highly recommend him to anyone, 10/10!!

A great tutor!

Joy has been helping me with Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics A-levels and has been completely helpful. He ensures that each specific area is completely understood before moving on to something else which I find extreme useful! Whilst tutoring, He comes up with analogies that automatically converts something that seemed extremely complicated to what's more easier to get a grasp of. I would recommend Joy for anyone as he is a jovial and enthusiastic tutor.

Good role model

Joy is an excellent tutor , He has helped me with my maths GCSE.
He is definitely a strong role model .I find him very motivating .Whenever I find myself stressing or panicking he stops me and explains why am I wrong and then , explains the correct way to complete the task. Joy`s teaching methods are very logical which makes it easy . I strongly believe that whoever he teaches will be a very lucky and will learn a lot with him .

A Level Maths

Joy was an friendly and approachable tutor, who provided help during his free times on many occasions at the school I attended.

He was quickly able to spot my weaknesses in my maths and correct them by providing additional work to improve these areas. This helped me strengthen my knowledge of harder topics in A level maths. He was able to help me in all areas of my maths course, including Core Maths and additional topics such as Statistics and Mechanics. The explanations and techniques he gave to solve the difficulties I had were very easy to understand and memorable so they could be used again.

Joy was an excellent tutor and I highly recommend him for maths tuition as he is very knowledgeable in all areas of maths and has a highly effective teaching method.

I finished with a B in A level Mathematics which was needed to study Economics at university. His help in weaker areas such as Statistics helped me improve my grade substantially. I believe Joy's

Tutor for maths

I started maths tution pretty late into the year. Having Joy as my tutor helped me a lot. In a couple of months we tasked the hard questions that would probably would've took 2 retakes. Overall, he helped me in a short amount of time and if anyone is considering having Joy as their tutor, I recommend it.
