« I have had over 5 different tutors for mathematics, and Tim is definitely the best, as well as good value for money. When I am struggling with any problems that I cannot solve on my own or by browsing the internet, Tim is the person I rely on not only to help solve the problem but to teach me the underlying concepts so that I can solve similar problems on my own in the future. I highly recommend him! »

I have +7 yrs of maths tutoring at all levels & hold a PhD in maths (U.o.Sheffield), 1st class MMath (Durham University). I have also aided adult learners such as young professionals with numeracy tes

Methodology

I use the unique insight gained from both my PhD in Mathematics and broad teaching experience to emphasise the intuitive nature of the subject (drawing parallels between topics) and to simplify problem-solving processes. I enjoy working together with students at all levels (both in person and online) to explore the beautiful patterns and structures of this fascinating discipline which underpins so much of the world around us. 

Equally as important, I maintain a relaxed and supportive environment where an individual's confidence is built up through breaking questions down into small, logical steps.

Background

In addition to many secondary school pupils, I have tutored students self-studying Further Maths and others completing courses at Bristol University, Open University, Leicester University and Oxford Brookes University. I have extensive experience with online tuition, teaching around 8 hours per week, and I particularly enjoy using my specialist expertise to help all learners reach their full potential.

As well as many UK students, I have taught international students from places such as China, India and the Middle East in my role as teacher at Queen's University Belfast (81% of my students achieved A/A* grades). Furthermore, I have taught trainee secondary maths teachers at Stranmillis University College where I received a rating of 98%. Prior to this I led undergraduate tutorials at the University of Sheffield and lectured at Sheffield International College.

I have had over 5 different tutors for mathematics, and Tim is definitely the best, as well as good value for money. When I am struggling with any problems that I cannot solve on my own or by browsing the internet, Tim is the person I rely on not only to help solve the problem but to teach me the underlying concepts so that I can solve similar problems on my own in the future. I highly recommend him!

I'm a good judge of character and he is a good character!
He is very motivated to impart his knowledge in a way that the student can understand and apply. He also checks back and makes sure the topic has been retained and student can recall formula/topic etc.

I would recommend tutor Tim 100%
There's a lot of well educated teachers out there, but not all of them can teach!
