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.
Sunny is reliable and comes well prepared for his lessons. He is patient and good at picking up on the issues my son needs help with. He has been helping him to know how to approach the trickiest A level questions.
Greater confidence and knowledge in the subjects covered so far, my son returns buoyant from his lessons
excellent teacher, develops intuition for subject

Sunny is an excellent teacher and explains concepts with great clarity. I particularly appreciated his emphasis on developing intuition in maths. He taught me linear algebra and numerical analysis, which proved very useful when I went on to research projects in physics.
Greater intuition and confidence in maths. Overall First Class Degree

Sunny is a very good teacher. My daughter struggled so badly with A level Maths and I got in contact with Sunny at a very challenging time. He pulled her up to feel confident in facing her exams, improved against all odds.
Sunny is passionate about maths and physics and this came across in lessons and rubbed off a bit on my son. Well prepared on the topics and syllabus. Good understanding of what's needed to get thru exams
Sunny is a fantastic tutor, with a in-depth knowledge of the subject. He transfers his skills to teaching in a brilliant way, being very thorough and ensures understanding. On top of this he is very motivating, would 100% recommend.
I feel much more confident. I have a greater understanding and more ease in tackling questions.

Sunny is a fantastic tutor. He carefully selects concepts and gives an analysis behind the mathematical skills needed to succeed under examination conditions. Moreover as a student myself I felt Sunny can give additional resources that cannot be be found anywhere else. Most importantly Sunny is tutor which is well formed each of modules. He is also a genuine person who is encouraging. Sunny is highly recommended as a tutor.
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.
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

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.
I have only had a few lessons with Sunny, but he has been very helpful. I have already learnt a great deal in my lessons. Sunny is very patient when explaining tricky topics or questions, making sure that I understand them before moving on and always aims to give me a deeper understanding of the subject than only what is required for my exams. I highly recommend Sunny to you.
