About Sunny

Maths and physics; experienced Cambridge PhD tutor

PhD and MMath (First class all 4 years) in Applied Maths, University of Cambridge.

I am a friendly and experienced tutor, love to teach, and am able both to improve results and motivate learning. After graduating from the University of Cambridge, I have also used maths for applications in industry and in finance.

I enjoy teaching students of all levels - students have moved from D to A/B grades, while students already achieving A grades have consolidated their knowledge and taken the next steps in their understanding and enjoyment of the subject. I have taught
GCSE, A level, IB SL, IB HL, PAT, MAT, Oxbridge admissions, STEP, undergraduate, and have over 1000 hours experience teaching in small groups or one-to-one.

I focus both on improving results and engaging students in the subject matter, which work together to help motivate students. The tutorial format is great because I see enormous progress being made compared to teaching in large groups, where it is just harder to cater for every student. For tutorials I can tailor the time in the most effective way for your current ability, having had experience doing this in over 1000 hours of tutoring. Following 2 tutorials I set out a plan for the next 2-3 months, and I also discuss throughout the pace, the content and your progress.

Outside of work I enjoy exploring places on long bike rides, rock climbing, swimming, and reading history books and books about the mind.

Highly recommended

Written by Alina M
I was very impressed with Sunny as a tutor to prepare my nephew for his A-level physics exams. Sunny provided numerous test papers for homework and made good use of the tutoring sessions to provide feedback and develop my nephew's knowledge in his weakest areas. Sunny also sent reviews after marking the papers which were really helpful for my nephew’s revision. I will be happy to use Sunny again as I feel that my nephew has really benefitted from the tutoring sessions and would highly recommend him to anyone considering using an online tutor for A-level physics exams.
Subject:
Physics
Outcome:
My nephew thought that Sunny was an excellent teacher, thorough, patient knowledgeable and professional. My nephew has benefited well from his tutorial sessions . Thank you Sunny it was a pleasure to

Great math tutor

Written by Eloise F
I'm aiming for a 7 in IB mathematics, to match an Oxford offer, and Sunny has been a remarkable tutor to help me achieve this. He is very efficient and helped me cover a large amount of material in a short amount of time, while also keeping it easy to understand. He gave me a lot of exam techniques ("tips and tricks"), and overall was a huge help.
