Oxford graduate teaching maths through its history

*Please note that I am currently finishing my PhD thesis and will not be available to tutor until December 2015.*

I am currently a final-year PhD student in History of Mathematics at the Open University. Before that, I did a degree in Maths at The Queen's College, Oxford. I have taught History of Maths to students at Oxford University, and I have tutored Maths to students of various ages.

I believe that maths is often best learned by understanding how it developed through history. Where possible, I use examples from history in my maths teaching, humanising the subject and making it relevant and interesting to the learner.

Rosie - What a Star - Great grade improvement

My daughter was having quite a hard time with maths leading up to her AS Levels. She's received an E in a mock test and was feeling like she would never be able to catch up and get a better grade.

She tells me that Rosie was a joy to work with and that she helped to improve her confidence as well as her understanding of some of the key maths areas.

Rosie was organised and logical. Helping my daughter to plan what should be covered in the next tutoring session and even going back to some key principles from years ago to help her improve her speed in those areas so she could concentrate on the new things.

I can't rate Rosie highly enough. We're looking forward to using her to move on to the next stage of A Level.
Subject:
Maths (A-Level)
Outcome:
Grade improved from E at mock to C at AS. Confidence was well improved too.
