My way of teaching mathematics starts by understanding my student's intuition and level of knowledge. Building from this, I will guide the student to link their intuition to the abstract, giving them ample room to develop their own insights. This fosters a deep understanding of the specific topic, while simultaneously providing the student with the tools to make learning maths easier, quicker and more fun.
I am an academic mathematician, in between research jobs. I have over 12 years of experience with teaching in various forms, from high school tutoring and exam training to university lecturing and collegiate tutorials. I am looking forward to applying my experience to A level tutoring, and to give my students a chance to not just get good at maths, but also enjoy it.
Most recently, I was a Postdoc at the University of Copenhagen. Besides doing my research there, I also lectured and supervised several student projects, and took a pedagogy course.
Before this, I was a PhD student in Pure Mathematics at the University of Oxford and a member of University College. While at Oxford, I received the departmental teaching award for my tutorial teaching.
Before this, I was a Master student in both Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Utrecht, and I did my Bachelor's in both Mathematics and Physics at the same place.
At every single stage of my academic career I have taught in some form, my full CV can be found at:
Perfect! Thomas is an extremely capable educator - very clear and adaptable to the students needs.
Paul is clearly well motivated to learn, and pro-actively seeks out resources. During the lesson he asks clear questions and carefully processes the responses.
