About Kevin

Mathematics specialist, from school entrance to STEP

I have taught Mathematics for a total of seven years at Westminster School and Dulwich College and at Birkbeck College in the University of London. I have 1st class Masters degrees in Mathematics from Magdalen College, Oxford and an MSc in Applied Statistics from Birkbeck as well as a degree in Law. I am friendly and reliable and very much enjoy one on one tutoring and the opportunities it gives to enable individual students to make rapid progress.

As well as teaching in person I have taught many students via Skype. I have a popular YouTube channel about Mathematics and so am very well set up for this type of lesson. Either in person or online, I always have several ideas in mind about how a lesson might develop and a range of my own materials which means that sequences of lessons can follow a good structure whilst each individual lesson is flexible and adapted to the student's needs and interests.

I am able to provide tuition to all ages and abilities, though I am particularly suited to getting the most out of relatively able students. For example in preparing students preparing for 11+ and scholarship examinations, or who want to push themselves to the A* boundary and beyond, or supporting students who are preparing for university entrance examinations. Recent students have been successful in applications to St Paul's Boys and Girls and in securing STEP offers for university maths courses.

My approach is problem based and diagnostic. This means that the student is actively engaged in solving problems for almost all of the lesson whilst I am responding to their answers by asking questions which reveal any underlying misconceptions. I work on the basis that students difficulties in mathematics usually arise from an insufficiently rich understanding of 'easy' topics. By investing time to revisit some of these easier areas and studying them in a more thorough and enriching way, students can subsequently make rapid progress whilst gaining an appreciation and enjoyment of their studies.

Kevin was very helpful and clear, even over Skype. We are grateful that he managed to make time for us in his busy schedule. My daughter felt a lot more confident after just one session with him. Highly recommended !
