Graduate student in Applied Maths gives home lessons in Maths (Middle school, high school, undergrads)

Methodology

A global and overall understanding of the course material is the aim during these tutoring sessions, not only assignment-specific knowledge. This method works, since it gives the student global tools to restore his/her confidence, and to answer new math problems for all levels (mid/high school, undergrad).

The tutoring aim at strengthening the basics, while getting a better understanding of specific and new features. Making sure that all the previous concepts in maths are acquired before getting into new and more complex fields. Most of the time, this is those basics that are a little weak, bringing low grades (lacking time during exams, not being sure, not knowing how to argue a result etc.)

In math, “Simple” means “essential”, those basics are often causing difficulties when seeing new fields, no worries, I got you covered !

I used to tutor in public places, like libraries, because we induce a separation between the places we work in, and the places we relax in. This is a neutral area, although we can also meet at your place. This confusion between work and distraction is the cause of many small problems for students. Most of my students were talented yet a little passive and distracted. Lacking confidence and starting to procrastinate more as they were entering high school (caused by many different distractions). If that description sounds familiar, don’t hesitate, I know this profile because I was the same at the exact same age!

A session usually lasts 1h30 since it is a good trade-off between a long and a bearable session. In terms of focusing, 1h30 is perfect. I charge £20 for 1h30, and advice one or two session per week, depending on the student’s needs.

Background

I am 23, and both my parents are teacher/professors (maths and physics), I am quite fond of teaching to be honest, I also teach bass guitar (and more recently French). I am doing research in the department of plant sciences in Oxford university, and I have been studying maths, statistics, psychology, cognitive sciences, neuroscience, and physics. I have been helping the others in maths since middle school, until I had to need a tutor myself in high school. I realised that it was just a matter of strong basics, and confidence.

I have been tutoring for 5 years now and helping students mainly to pass or prepare A level (what we call “high school diploma” in France).

Rates

Rate for a 1-hour lesson. : £13/h

Details

Lessons usually takes 1h30 and are £20. One hour and a half is the perfect focusing time, that allows to review what the student knows, to correct him, sum up the lecture notes and to go further into the teaching. A neutral working environment could be a plus, so that the student separate the working and the relaxation spaces. If you prefer, we can still meet at your place.
