About the lesson
I will teach anyone up to A-level but in the last 5 years have mostly taught GCSE students. I am looking to tutor online unless we can arrange a place to meet that is close to where I live. The way lessons will be taught and the structure is completely decided by the student and/or parents of the student. In the past I have usually based my lessons on working through topics the student struggles with until they feel confident about it. If there are no particular topics then aim to go through the syllabus, working through the trickier topics if possible.
I have done 2 years of studying Economics at the University of Bristol. I have been tutoring for the past 5 years around my hometown and Bristol area. I achieved an A* and a 9 at GCSE Maths as well as an A at A-level.

- Anthony's response : All went really well

Anthony, has been very supportive and encouraged my son throughout his GCSE revision and exams. He has recognised the areas that needed progress and tailored his sessions to suit his needs. This has improved his results and aided revision techniques. I can’t thank him enough for all his support.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Anthony, he tutored both my children, one preparing for GCSE's and the other a year 8 student. Both children did exceedingly well and both would happily recommend Anthony for his ability to making the subject much easier to understand and doable.
Anthony is a very reliable and professional tutor. He tutored our son in Maths at GCSE level after a recommendation from our local secondary school. He was always prepared, arrived on time and enthusiastic. He was extremely knowledgable in his subject and used a relaxed informal style which suited our son down to the ground. I would have no hesitation in recommending Anthony as an excellent mathematics tutor.
Anthony was my tutor for A level maths last year.
He gave very good straight forward teaching that was easy for me to follow and was very good at explaining things in a different way in order for me to be able to understand them
In my opinion he is a great tutor and definitely the one to go for . In the end I went from getting C's in maths to getting an A in my final exam which I wouldn't have done without his help
My daughter was taught Maths by Anthony between her mocks and her gcse, she went from a D to an A during this period, which I think speaks for itself! Highly recommend this young man, easy to get on with and flexible with what she wanted to work on. A+++
Anthony tutored my son for his GCSE maths for over a year. He was always reliable, punctual and flexible . He made the sessions interesting and productive with my lad who wasn't always receptive to home tutoring but after a few minutes with Anthony he would get stuck in. I would highly recommend Anthony and would use him again without hesitation. My son got a very decent Maths GCSE after missing a large chunk of school thanks to the excellent tutoring of this lovely young man.

When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
I loved maths from a really young age as it was the subject I was most comfortable with. This interested only developed more and more over the years, expanding into other maths related topics such as science, business and economics.
Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).
I only really offer maths tuition as it's the only subject I feel 100% confident that I can teach all topics up to higher GCSE. I am able to offer A-level maths tutoring but I would need more of a heads up with lessons to make sure that I remember and can teach the chosen topics.
Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
I have definitely got on better with my maths teachers than in other subjects over the years. But what inspired me to dive deeper in maths and science was a science monthly magazine aimed at kids/young teens which I read for years and really peaked my interest in great concepts and topics.
What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
The best quality to have as a tutor is to be flexible and to adapt to each and every student. Knowledge and confidence is definitely key, but the ability to understand a student's level, understand what they want to achieve and find the best ways to teach each specific student is what will make the most difference, especially in children as learning can often be seen as boring and a chore. Catching and maintaining the student's interest will often result in faster learning and comprehension of topics.
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
When I was 9/10 years old, I'd often read the science magazines mentioned above at the library during lunchtime in the school I was at in France. Lunchtime was 1 hour 30 mins so I had plenty of time and often read the same ones I'd read before as there weren't many. Because of this, my family ended up subscribing to the monthly magazine and my entirely family loved it too!
What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?
The first real difficulties I faced in maths were in year 13 where statistics and mechanics felt tougher and out of reach. I still did well in my A-levels but that was the first big obstacle. Economics at university has been a real challenge and the level of maths needed has been a lot more than I realised. I have finished two years of the course but I am actually switching to a completely different course (Spanish and French) as I simply haven't enjoyed the level of maths and what the course has to offer. I still really enjoy maths up to and including sixth form level, but have not enjoyed undergraduate level and will therefore not take it any further.
Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?
I have found that over the years, the reason why I love tutoring is because I really care and want to help my students. Seeing the progress and change in confidence in my students has been very rewarding, especially when I have been able to bring them up to their desired level and help them achieve the grade they wanted.
What makes you a Superprof (besides answering this interview questions :-P) ?
As mentioned above, I will really care about what it is you want to achieve it, and will give my best to help you to do so. As a university student, I am very flexible with lesson times and dates and will always do my best to cater to your needs and timetable.
