To teach is to inspire, motivation is the drive.

I choose to study mathematics for my degree as an interests. (so is my interest for physics) After the studies, it is come to me I should share my enthusiasm to younger students as well. Private tutoring is a good point to start, with the help from me, I hope students to find the subjects more interesting rather than a dull subject to part in the school.

Experience-wise, I've become a private tutor for three years now and I had taught over 250 students. The subject include mathematics, physics and mandarin. Range from KS3 to degree level.
Dec 2012 - Feb 2013: Teaching Assistant at Lister Community School
Oct 2014 - Jun 2015: Maths & Mandarin Tutor at Greig City Academy

For the mathematics and physics teaching, I believe the conceptional understanding is much more important than memorize the method. Once the concept has been absorbed, the method of solving problem become rather trivial. Of course to maximize the efficiency of learning, an interests in the subject is essential. Hence I'd like to increase the students engagement by given information on more practical use of the knowledge or more news on advanced study.

Note: for people asking for degree level maths. I will ask lecture notes or at least syllabus. Though undergraduate maths is taught at similar level, there are variation for each modules due to each lecturers' style. Just list a module name hardly tells what topics are required to study. Lecture notes are used to see the way that particular lecture taught, otherwise give me a syllabus I shall use my own lecture notes.

Clearly knows what he is doing, patient and explains concepts very well.

I needed someone to assist me with University Level Mathematics, so I needed someone who knew what they were talking about and explained things well. Liu broke down difficult concepts easily and was patient in doing so. My confidence in approaching difficult questions has increased significantly. Thanks!

Preparation for Statistics Exam

Thanks to Liu, he helped us to understand statistics before our exam. His explanation is clear and easy. We had no clue about statistics before we met Liu, he could provide real life examples which helped us to learn how to apply theory. In our first exam we got 84% and also wrote our final and feel confident about our results.

A new way to learn!

I had Liu tutor me in both A-Level Mathematics and Physics. I really enjoyed his lessons as his teaching style made the content relatable and enabled me to understand the work, not just knowing how to do it.

Very Recommended! Especially so if you wish to learn in depth about a subject.

Still awaiting my results, although I felt very confident and comfortable with my tests.

Liu was an excellent tutor throughout my statistics lesson with him.

The bottom line is, Liu provides great value for money in his lessons, and I would go to Liu again if I ever needed tutoring on another subject

not suitable for GCSE Physics

For my daughter's first lesson with Lui, he decided to assess her conceptual insight into maths and how it relates to Physics!
This was a 1 hour session and she has her exam in at least 3 weeks! I felt he wasted time at the begining of the session!
The latter part of the lesson, he worked on the equations from her physics paper, this was helpful for her.
However, he seemed unprepared, lack of equipment!
I don't think he is suited to GCSE more A level or Degree level (concept theories).
Subject:
Physics (GCSE)
Outcome:
Not continuing, but I hope this is helpful to him and parents!

Physics A Level for GAMSAT

Liu taught me physics A Level from scratch (7 years after my GCSE) for a graduate entry medicine exam. In response to my non-scientific background and time constraints he made sure I was confident with the basics and then prioritised the essential material in a structured and concise way. I was impressed by the range of clear examples he draws from memory, finding ways to explain things from a different angles both verbally and with diagrams and making physics come alive outside of the textbook. He was very patient and willing to go over topics as many times and in as many ways as it took for me to understand. Since the requirements of my specific exam went beyond A Level-style questions, Liu adapted the lessons and we painstakingly went over all the past papers I could find in the run up to the exam and he answered any questions I had between lessons via text message. From being daunted by the prospect of learning physics, I was surprised to find it fascinating and Liu's enthusiasm for his subject was a major factor in my enjoyment. Liu was always professional, flexible and encouraging and I'm extremely grateful for his help.
Subject:
Physics
Outcome:
I scored in the top 2% of GAMSAT candidates overall.
