MSc Actuarial Mathematics and Data Science student offering A-level maths and physics lessons in Edinburgh.

Methodology

Studies show that rote learning is the worst way of remembering new concepts.
My teaching methodology would consist of primarily in helping the student understanding new concepts and continued scheduled practice in these concepts. This specific method of teaching is called the 'Active Recall' which has worked wonders for me so far.

Experience

I am currently a student in the MSc in Actuarial Management with Data Science programme in Heriot-Watt university and graduated with a 1st in Actuarial Science (Mathematics with an emphasis in Probability and Statistics for Finance and Insurance).
I finished my A-levels with two A*'s and an A in Mathematics, Physics and Further Mathematics respectively, as well as an A in As-level chemistry

Ahmet

Ashley's maths and stats skills are excellent. He is very polite, patient, articulate and knowledgeable. Whenever I struggled understanding, he used different approaches until I understand everything. I strongly recommend him for anyone for any level.

S
Smit

He's very well spoken and knowledgeable. Helps with doubts whenever possible. Honestly, one of the more helpful professors on this site.

C
Calvin

Ashley is very patient and thorough when explaining maths equations and he always can decompose a complex math formula into small and simple steps. He is extremely helpful and always puts a big smile on his face. I have always enjoyed his lessons and tutoring. I wouldn’t achieve what I have achieved without his support. So I highly recommend Ashley to you as a math tutor/teacher.

M
Mohamed

Ashley is an aspiring Actuary and tutor with a specialty in teaching Mathematics and Statistics.

Ashley was a top student in our cohort during our undergraduate degree. He is able to deliver detailed lessons and posseses a deep appreciation for mathematics.

Above all I would recommend Ashley as a tutor because of his qualifications and his diligent approach to teaching.

A
Alex

Did my undergrad with Ashley and his ability to explain complex material in a simple way had proven very helpful throughout our degree. He has a solid grounding in statistics but has a broad knowledge base in other fields of mathematics at and beyond A level standard.
