Mathematics specialist, from school entrance to STEP

Sept 2017: Central London: Saturdays
Bath/Bristol/Online: Weekday evenings

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 a 1st class Masters degree in Mathematics from Magdalen College, Oxford and recently (2016) won the prize for best performance on an MSc in Applied Statistics. I am friendly and reliable and really enjoy one on one tutoring and the opportunities it gives to enable individual students to make rapid progress.

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 young 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.

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.

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.

As I teach full-time, I have limited availability and mainly tutor in South and Central London at weekends and during the school holidays, though other times and locations are sometimes possible, so please contact me to discuss your particular requirements.
