Medical student in Edinburgh - I teach AS and A level Statisics!

Methodology

The best way to learn statistics, is to do statistics. I normally use past paper exercises to keep as close to the style of questioning as you will get in your exam. Understanding comes with practice, practice, practice!

Experience

My school in Cape Town was tiny, and we lost our statistics teacher early on. I started tutoring AS Stats 1 (Paper 6) while I was studying for my Stats 2 exam (Paper 7).

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £15/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £65
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £130

Details

I charge £15 per hour with private lessons, and £12 per hour if in a group.

Sara was my tutor the year I wrote my A-level statistics exam. She really helped me understand each topic extremely well. I admire her super friendly attitude and always going the extra mile to ensure the work is covered thoroughly. Overall, she helped gain confidence in statistics and have the never give up attitude!

Sara tutored me in A level stats and it was the best experience with a tutor I have had. She helped me achieve the A in statistics that i would not have achieved without her help. She has a really solid understanding in the work bit would explain it in a way that made it so easy to understand. She would make sure we finished each topic with a thorough understanding and would print out lots of practice questions for the topic from past papers in order for us to get a feel of how it would be asked in exams. She explained all topics very nicely and would not hesitate to help me with any problems. She made me enjoy stats to the point where I still continue to do it as a module in university. I highly recommend her as a tutor to anyone
