Expert Mathematics Tutor - Oxford and Imperial graduate

I'm an Oxford graduate and qualified teacher (PGCE) with great experience helping students grow in confidence and achieve great results in Mathematics.

A lot of my work is with A-Level Maths and Further Maths students. I can help with all the modules of A-Level, from the transition into C1 up to the challenges of FP3, including Mechanics, Statistics and Decision modules up to a high level. My goal is to make sure that everything is understandable in a clear and simple way so that we can build steadily on good groundwork.

At a GCSE level, I encourage people to take Higher level GCSE but I will also tutor Foundation level if appropriate. In the last year, I've tutored for GCSE Double Maths (Applications & Methods), Additional Maths FSMQ, GCSE Statistics, and IGCSE.

I sometimes get asked for help with specific high level statistics which I'm happy to offer. I've tutored bankers, neuroscientists and surgeons, and I've given statistical advice to TV game shows.

Tutoring sessions with me have a student-led style - we will normally cover anything the student wants help with, whether that is extra help to keep up with classwork, building on a weak area, or trying more challenging questions. As lessons progress, I ensure we are guided by the syllabus content and I will often use past exam papers and exam-style questions to make sure my students are fully prepared.

My work extends beyond exam technique into advice for UCAS university applications, personal statements, how best to meet the grade requirements safely and pass the tests, including STEP, Medical and Oxbridge entrance.

I have practical experience of using maths, since I've designed a successful puzzle app for iPhone ("Pokergreen Puzzles") and I've worked in Statistical Genetics research (MSc Imperial College London). Students value my insight into how maths can be used in real world applications.

Applying for American Unis? I got 2390 in a recent SAT with Subject Tests at 800 for Math Level I and II and even 780 for Biology. I've helped British and American students reach the same level. UK students should be aware that the application schedule can start early in Year 12 and that multiple choice questions still demand a lot of strategy and careful practice!

A kind tutor who can explain advanced concepts with fun techniques

I am preparing for scholarship exams and Ronald was able to improve my confidence and challenge me. He slowly builds up the level of difficulty so he can first understand what you need to work on by revising the basics to the point where you really understand the process, and then on to a far more advanced level of maths.

I will continue to use him during my next school breaks. He really knows his stuff.

Helpful and trains you well for exams

Ronald is amazing! His style helped challenge myself and think carefully about math concepts! He also tends to tailor the way he teaches according to the needs of students. Along with this, he knows the exam requirements really well so he trained me really really well for it.

Brilliant!

Ronald was extremely helpful all through the time he tutored me. He was especially helpful for my D1 module with which I struggled a lot! He could explain all the parts of the questions very well and really supported me to get my A in both Further Maths and Maths AS level. I can now transfer to A2 Maths with confidence and in the knowledge that I can ask Ronald for help if I start to struggle! Ronald was kind, understanding and really helped me.
