Imperial Mathematics Graduate; Covering Greater London; Specialising in GCSE and A-level Maths; Based in Merton

Methodology

I am a recent mathematics graduate of Imperial College London (2013-2016).

I have been providing maths tuition since 2012 to a diverse range of people. Whether a high school student or an adult learner, my experiences have allowed me to adapt well to any student and exam board. My patience is unwavering and enables students to feel comfortable coming forward with any difficulties.

When presented with a maths question, you usually know within a few seconds whether or not you can solve it. After comprehensively covering the relevant topics, my mission is to connect all the dots in my student's mind, so that eventually they can have complete confidence when faced with any maths problem.

The main way to learn maths is through solving problems. When you hit a brick wall and struggle to solve a problem, then suddenly have a moment of enlightenment to lead you to the answer - that's the moment when real learning occurs. My role is to guide the student through maths problems, bridging the gap from struggle to enlightenment.

Depending on the student's mathematical foundation, we can cover as much or as little theory as needed before diving into problems. If the student wishes, we can delve deeper than the syllabus requires and derive proofs from first principles. Intuitive understanding is also important, for which I try to introduce visual or real world examples of maths concepts.

Note: In order to make lessons as efficient as possible, I give the option of setting homework, so that during lesson time we can focus on what the student has already struggled with.

Experience

Before university, I completed intensive A-levels in just one year and achieved the following results:

A* in Mathematics (Edexcel),
A* in Further Mathematics (Edexcel),
A in Economics (WJEC).

My twelve examined maths modules were: C1-C4, FP1-FP3, M1-M2, S1-S3.
Having also self-studied the other mechanics modules, I am comfortable teaching up to M5.
I performed particularly strongly in the seven pure (C and FP) modules, averaging above 98%.

After my A-levels, I took a gap year and began to tutor maths in order to save money for university. Hence, I have now been tutoring for four years. My students during this time have been numerous and with differing needs. I can cater to any plan or time constraint set by the student, but commitment and hard work on their part goes a long way in achieving success. Those who have been committed have gone on to achieve A* and A grades in their maths exams.

My tutoring experience has made it very clear that hard work trumps natural ability alone. In addition to any direct help with maths problems, I try to motivate the student to develop good working habits in general.
