ABOUT ME:

I have recently graduated with a mathematics degree from the University of Birmingham. I'm a hardworking and self driven individual who knows how to get things done. I'm a strong believer in setting goals and I always put my maximum effort in aiming to achieve these goals. I`m also a pretty chilled and easy going guy. These qualities along with my passion for mathematics and rigor have helped become a good tutor and mentor.

MY EXPERIENCE:

I taught maths GCSE and A-level in a School in Italy for a year. I currently tutor privately and teach maths A-level in a private school near Earls Court. . I started tutoring in September 2011, I have tutored GCSE Mathematics, IGCSE Mathematics, IGCSE Further Mathematics, A level Mathematics and further mathematics and tutored people with a wide range of mathematical abilities. I've also tutored the mathematics access course.

MY APPROACH:

I believe mathematics should be fun and enjoyable, this comes from understanding what your doing and not just getting by in school with formulas. My approach to tutoring is helping my tutee think like a mathematician and helping him/her understand every concept of what he/she is doing and tackle every possible type of problem that they could face in the examination they are going to do, this will help my tutee's confidence because practice is one of the best ways to build confidence . My goal is to help him/her to the point where he/she doesn't need me anymore and he/she is confident in their mathematical abilities.

Peter was my undergraduate tutee from September 2014 to June 2016, the 2nd and 3rd years of his BSc Mathematics degree. Peter graduated in July 2016 with a 2.1 degree, including excellent marks in Multivariable and Vector Analysis (92%), Numerical Methods and Programming (85%) and Real and Complex Analysis (78%).

I had most contact with Peter during his second year. During weekly tutorials, Peter would enthusiastically take part in problem solving and present written solutions on the blackboard. He is a good mathematician and has excellent communication skills - in particular he is calm, patient and methodical, vital aspects of conveying mathematics. I also taught him Numerical Methods and Programming that year - again his work in group computer lab sessions was excellent.

Peter is a very pleasant and agreeable person - I found him very easy to deal with as a tutee, and we have had some very interesting discussions about careers and further study. He was clearly well-liked by his peers and I believe that other students would look to him for help with their work in the group study space.

I believe Peter will make a very good tutor. He has the right balance of excellent communication, a calm and pleasant manner, and strong mathematical ability.

Peter has been a tremendous tutor for me, helping me in areas of maths I have struggled in, and his help enabled me to achieve above and beyond what I expected in A-level maths. I would highly recommend Peter as he is friendly and helpful.

Maths

Outcome:

A*

Peter was an absolutely brilliant and first class maths A levels tutor to my daughter. Peter tutored her for 4 hours a week. He was professional, extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter, punctual, and reliable. Peter is calm with a very pleasant teaching style which brought out the best in my daughter resulting in a B grade in her maths A level. His explanations were clear, and easy to follow. He is not a clock watcher and generally completes a lesson when the question has been fully explained. We are extremely pleased with his high standard of work and was very fortunate to have Peter as my daughter's tutor.

Maths

Outcome:

A high B grade in A level maths

Peter has shown himself to be a clear and dedicated personal tutor which was apparent when he helped me revise areas of C3 and C4 in June 2017 in preparation for my important upcoming exams. He did this by asking me which areas I found the most challenging, testing me on them and then coming up with a worked solution until I could reproduce the answers, which I find an effective way of learning. One of the areas which I found more challenging, construction of differential equations for rates of change by translating English into Maths, came up in the C4 exam. However because of the practise we had undergone together I was able to answer it with ease, I am very happy as that could have cost me my A* in Maths!

Outcome:

A* in Maths and feeling more confident with subject areas.

Peter is an excellent tutor. He is young and enthusiastic and knows his subject well. Both my boys struggled with Maths concepts but Peter made them easy to understand. He is a conscientious and polite (always punctual) and someone my boys really related to. Both passed their Maths GCSE and one achieved a grade A! I cannot recommend Peter highly enough.

Subject:

Maths

Outcome:

Good passes at GCSE gained by both my sons.

Peter was a fabulous tutor. He was punctual and never cancelled any sessions. He came prepared with work for my daughter and was also aware of the new GCSE syllabus. He developed a good relationship with her which allowed her to grow in confidence. I would highly recommend Peter.

My daughter obtained a grade 8 in her maths GCSE and will be doing this subject for A level

Peter only began tutoring my daughter in January when we were told by her school that they were concerned she wouldn't reach the minimum grade 4 pass in Maths. She passed her GCSE with a Grade 5! Peter immediately installed a belief in my daughter that she would succeed with his calm, patient and supportive approach. His lessons were structured and well thought out for my daughter's needs. A rewarding mix of lots of hard work but laughter too!! I would highly recommend Peter to tutor at any level of Maths required.
