Math PhD student offers maths and physics lessons at university level in London

Methodology

I believe there is no, and there should not be, a unique method to teach. As learning is very personal so should teaching be more based on the students' needs. In teaching maths and physics, I have always found helpful for students to explain even abstract concepts by beginning with concrete examples: I often base the content of a lesson on useful exercises. Usually, in my classes or during private tutoring, I start off the teaching hour summing up with a few bullet points what the students have been learning so far, I then highlight what will the topic of the day be, and while I explain things I like to interact directly with students, ask them to solve little exercises or answer simple questions.

Experience

I am a theoretical physicist pursuing a PhD in mathematics. I have a wide experience of teaching to late high school and university level students, both private and in groups. During the first three years of my PhD I have been a teaching associate for probability, calculus I and II, differential equations, and dynamical systems.

Francesco is good tutor. Learning with him is a great experience because he manages to give the good examples to help me understand and also explains the issues clearly.

Beatrice

Francesco is a friend of mine. We met when he was still studying physics at Uni. Already back then he was really passionate with both learning physics and maths, and teaching them. I was a computer science student at that time and he helped me out with my first year courses of physics and calculus. He is really patient and he always tries to find an intuitive way to explain concepts, even the tougher ones!
I deeply recommend it to anyone who wants to understand/learn more about quantitative sciences. Whether this will be for passing a university exam or just for passion, Francesco is the good one to support you with your plans.

Francesco has been tutoring me for over 2 years now throughout my Bachelor in Mathematics. He helped me with various modules such as Differential Geometry and Complex Networks. Im very very pleased with the quality of lessons and his teaching style. Hes always very well prepared and has in depth knowledge of the topics. Also hes a really nice guy and fun to work with.
