I am very friendly and make my sessions interactive and engaging. I adapt my sessions to suit the individual pupil as Maths problems can be solved and explained in several ways, the key is to find the best method to suit the pupil. I think it's important to teach the subject for knowledge instead of just exam preparation as exams can be very unpredictable.
I am a Masters graduate with a Distinction in Applied Mathematics, I am currently working as a Software Engineer with 5+ years of tutoring in Mathematics. I have tutored a wide range of ages and abilities including Primary maths, KS3, GCSE, A-Level Mathematics and Further Mathematics and first year undergraduate Mathematics students.
I have inspired students to appreciate Mathematics through my passion for the subject, and thus seen a great improvement in my students grades.
