Camilo - Dalston - Drum

Methodology

I am an experienced teacher (14 years) & musician. I teach maths as the science of patterns; these patterns can be beautiful and pop up all around us in our everyday lives: within music, architecture, physics & computer algorithms, to name a few.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach maths, physics and music technology. I teach many different aspects of music: production, theory, performance, recording and analysis.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I graduated from the University of Huddersfield with a 1st class BA (hons) in Music Technology. I have A-levels in Maths, Physics and Music Technology, all to grade A, and an A in A/S-level Music. I have 8 A*'s, 2 A's and a B at GCSE.

- How much do you charge?

Generally I charge £45 per hour. This rate will be reduced for lessons that are longer than one hour, e.g. £65 for 1.5-hour and £80 for 2-hour lessons. The exact amount depends on how far I have to travel. If students can come to me then I will charge a reduced rate of £40 per hour. I am happy to teach groups at a reduced rate (for each student).

- Where do you teach?

I am based in Dalston, Hackney, East London. I am happy to travel to most parts of of North & East London, and also some parts of South East London (e.g. Deptford, Brockley, New Cross, Lewisham).

- When are you available?

My timetable is quite flexible. I am happy to work evenings and weekends but weekdays are preferable (except Tuesday and Wednesday).

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

The majority of my students are between the ages of 9-18, but I also teach older students who are working towards degrees and teaching qualifications.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE, A/S-level, A-level, QTS (Qualified Teaching Status) numeracy, 11+ school entrance exams (verbal/non-verbal reasoning also) and SATs

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I am happy for people to e-mail me their work for advice and feedback. Alternatively we can talk through Skype or any other means of instant messaging and I use Scribblar software to facilitate this.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

The more you understand a subject, the less you actually have to memorise. Even times tables, which are generally taught by rote, can be broken down into very clear patterns. Maths is the science of patterns, and numbers are just a tool for quantifying these patterns. I really enjoy helping my students find beauty within these patterns, which hopefully makes the subject easier to understand

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching for 10 years. I have prepared students for many different exams, including GCSEs, A-Levels, 11+, QTS Numeracy, SATs, but I also teach students over the course of many years to boost their confidence and help them enjoy their studies.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes.

Camilo has helped our son with his maths. This has been a very useful and enjoyable experience for him and I can whole heartedly recommend Camilo as a maths tutor.

Camilo tutored our son in preparation for his Maths GCSE. He has great subject knowledge as well as a passion for Maths, is creative in his thinking and very patient and methodological in his explanations. He's also a really nice guy :-) We know Camilo's guidance had a big part in our son receiving an 8 in his final exam. We recommend him wholeheartedly.

Camilo was my daughters Maths tutor throughout the run up to her GCSEs in 2019, for around a year in total.

I can highly recommend him as a tutor and my daughter benefitted from regular tutorials with him.

He was flexible and would sometimes help with homework, or nearer exam time go through past papers and helping with especially difficult topics. He was able to explain complex concepts which enabled her to gain in confidence as she got nearer to the actual exams.

He also taught her good exam technique and helped her generally feel much less anxious about the whole process.

He was reliable and punctual and and the end result was she went from being predicted a 4 in the Higher paper to actually achieving a solid grade 6 in her actual exam, which she was delighted with.

Before Camilo, I was struggling to engage with maths and started to under-perform in exams. Camilo helped me for around 2 years and was able to break down the complicated maths into simple understandable steps which I was then able to practise and apply in mocks exam questions he provided. Camilo’s brilliant teaching and ability to make maths an enjoyable experienced allowed me to go from struggling to get a C, to achieving an A in Maths GCSE. For anyone wanting to excel in Maths, I would highly recommend Camilo.

Camilo is very accomplished, as a mathematician, as a musician and as a sound engineer. He has much teaching experience, and is relaxed, very focussed and a good listener.
I came to know him as his tutor in many subjects, 20 years ago, but in many fields he has outgrown my knowledge.
I recommend him as a tutor, and as an encourager of studying and taking a delight in learning. He is a very positive presence.

I asked Camilo to start tutoring my daughter when I was told, six weeks before her IGCSE Maths examination, that she had little chance of passing the exam! Camilo worked wonders, he calmed my stressed daughter down and re-instilled her confidence and love of the subject. My daughter achieved a B in her exam and is happily studying for her A levels. I really cannot recommend Camilo and his tutoring methods highly enough.

Camilo tutored my son for 2 years, whilst he was in the middle of his GCSE Maths course. My son was not enjoying maths at school and needed support and inspiration. With Camilo's help he managed to achieve an A* and, to my surprise, even chose to carry on studying Maths to A/S level, where he got an A. Camilo is a very calm and extremely friendly presence, he communicates very well and is always punctual. Without a doubt, having sessions with him has helped my son gain confidence and ability.

K
Kaya (GCSE Maths student)

Unlike my maths teacher at school, Camilo didnt get stressed when I asked for help when I was stuck. He had an excellent knowledge of the Maths syllabus and he helped me feel more confident. He is very friendly and I felt very safe with him. He never made me feel stupid and calmed my panicking. Thanks so much Cam! I got a good B in my exam after being told I would fail it!!!

J
Joe

Camilo has greatly increased my ability and enthusiasm for maths and I would not have been able to achieve my GCSE grade 5 without him. His down to earth and chilled teaching style made it very easy to learn from him. Never once was his large knowledge for the subject presented as patronising when explaining topics, instead he was easy to relate to and overall a very patient teacher who I would recommend to all students who are struggling with maths.
