I currently teach KS3, IGCSE and A-Level Maths at an international school, where I specialise in Cambridge International Examinations. My lessons consist of doing a starter based on a previous topic or background knowledge needed for the new topic. Then I teach the concept, do a couple of examples and I let pupils try exercises on their own, with scaffolding if needed.
I have been teaching for 2 years now, having taught over 100 students. Last year all my students bar one passed their IGCSE exams with at least a C so I believe I have the ability to get the best out of students.
I am a full-time teacher currently teaching IGCSE and A-level Mathematics. I graduated with a master’s degree in Digital Signal Processing and a bachelor’s degree in Electronic Engineering. I am a self-motivated, reliable and hard working person able to work well independently or as part of a team. I have good technical skills & analytical skills and I am passionate about teaching. I am a curious and flexible person always wanting to learn and to take on new challenges.

Mathematics teacher at CLIP:
August 2016 – :
- Teaching: Currently teaching KS3, IGCSE and AS Maths
- Team work: Worked well as part of the Maths Department, including developing curriculum for KS5 Mathematics.
Great professional, has a lot of knowledge. Has a masters degree and knows how to break things down so it is easier to understand the equation at hand. Very smart as an individual and person.
Based on the long association with him and of the knowledge of the growth of his personality and integrity, I can state without fears that, Mr Hamilton handles responsibility well and he is a self-motivated individual. I firmly believe in his exceptional teaching capabilities and strongly recommend him without reservation.
I have known Hamilton for the past two years. During this period, Hamilton has proved to be a valuable member of the Mathematics Department. Students enjoy his lessons as his explanations are clear and accurate. His mathematical knowledge is vast and he is quite experienced in solving exercises from different examination boards. He will definitely be a great acquisition!
