I teach students by showing them how to DO maths in the most efficient and clear way that will deal with problems of simple and complex nature. I am not prescriptive, any method is fine as long as you get the correct answer and you do not make mistakes. But for me technique is just as important as knowledge and what I will bring to the table, you generally wont find in books.
I have been teaching mathematics at all levels (KS1, KS2, KS3, GCSE, A Level, Undergraduate and graduate level). I have taught 10,000 of students in my lifetime so far. I have had particular success in helping 11 and 13 year olds get into their school of choice. I have lots of experience and success in also teaching mature students who have had trouble with Maths. Although I am not specifically qualified to teach students with special needs I have had a number of successes here too. Many of my students achieve top grades at GCSE and A level. I have also had examiner experience at national level since 1980, with different UK Exam Boards
If I need to mark work, such as exam scripts I will charge a reasonable extra amount (flat rate to be agreed/script), but it will depend on the length of the script
BSc (Hons) Mathematics (Imperial College, 1972)
PHd (Theoretical Fluid Dynamics) (City University, London 1982)
I have published over 110 technical papers and reports. I have reviewed and refereed numerous technical papers, books on mathematics, engineering and NDT and have presented papers at national and international conferences. I received the ‘John Grimwade Medal’ from the British Institute of NDT (BINDT) for best paper in 1989 on Geometrical Theory of Diffraction, as well as winning the BINDT ‘Ron Halmshaw Award’ for the best paper on Radiology in 1997 and again in 2003.
I Was Associate Professor at London Southbank University (LSBU, School of Engineering, 2010-2016). At LSBU I was the module coordinator for the three main mathematics modules taught in Engineering. This involved co-ordinating, lecturing and the assessing of Mathematics to some 45 different degree courses each week, which involved about 900 1st and 2nd year undergraduate students. I was also Course Director for the BEng and MEng courses in Mechanical Engineering. In 2013, 2014 and 2015 I was nominated the ‘most outstanding lecturer’ by the student body. In 2014, the University nominated me for a National Teaching Fellow Award in the United Kingdom.
Dr.Georgiou had been my math lecturer during Undergraduate at London South Bank University for three years. He was one of the kind, helpful and approachable lecturers at the faculty of Engineering. Dr.Georgiou was renowned in the faculty as a person who welcomes you with questions and gives appointments as soon as possible to assist students with their set of problems. As a student, when you raise problems, he spots them precisely to lead you in the right way towards solutions, no matter what level of knowledge you have.
Dr.Georgiou used to spend a lot of time and energy over tutorials to make sure that everyone’s happy with the contents. As we had solved a range of questions during tutorials, we were confident with math exams and were not overstressed like other engineering module tests at the end of semesters.
Despite my previous experiences, I do not remember tiredness at Dr.Georgiou’s lectures as he shows enjoyable ways of learning and practical understanding of mathematics. He tries to vary the learning disciplines to make them more pleasurable and perceivable for students.
Dr.Georrgiou is capable of handling big groups of students, at London South Bank University we had lectures consisting of 400 students in the same hall and Dr.Georgiou was always kindly and patiently responsive to people’s questions. Everyone was happy at the end the class.
I have to confess that I was not personally interested in mathematics until I attended Dr.Georgiou’s lecturers and received motivations to endlessly work on my math skills. At the end of each year, I achieved marks of 90, 96 and 100 out 100 respectively for engineering mathematics and modeling modules.
Besides his profound knowledge in mathematics, I deeply respect Dr.Georgiou for his amazing personality and great effort to transfer his knowledge generously to students and learners.
Georgios is a fantastic tutor - he tutored my son for 2 years and he just got A* in his GCSE! He is also tutoring my 13 year old daughter. He is always on time, patient with the children but ensures they cover the work they need. I would highly recommend him!
Georgios was my mathematics professor for two years whilst at university. I'm dyslexic and over the years I have had quite a few maths teachers. Georgios was the best! Georgios has a very advanced understanding of the history of mathematics and the history of mathematical developments i.e who discovered what. Georgios was able to tell us exactly the real world application of mathematics for each field or topic of mathematics he taught us. Georgios has a passion for mathematics and is very enthusiastic about teaching. Georgios always took his time and was able to break it all down and share with us. He could explain. His notes were succinct, easy to follow and on point. His command of the subject is undeniable. Georgios also made very few mistakes and errors. Remarkably, Georgios made us a promise, 'If you do all the work, you will definitely pass'. He was of course correct! I am supremely confident that Georgios was the best lecturer at our University and probably one of the best lectures in the country (not just mathematics).
