As someone studying mathematics at the University of Oxford, I teach with a focus on creative problem solving, as well as looking at the foundations of the mathematical methods. In this way, students can expect to fully understand the techniques they are using rather than simply apply them mechanically.
I have been giving private lessons for over three years, teaching students at pre-GCSE, GCSE, and A-level. Apart from students grades improving, I am happy to report that all previous students have said they enjoy mathematics more after being tutored by me and have had their confidence greatly improved.

Allie has been fantastic - it was obvious from our first lesson that she both loves the subject and is extremely sympathetic to problems people have learning it. I'm not really a maths person, but she was able to bring things into the discussion that I actually found interesting and helped me see maths as more than just memorizing steps. She knows the syllabus really well, and was very good at discerning which parts I needed the most help with and focusing on them. Overall a great experience.
