Oxford University graduate, mathematics postdoc specialising in applied analysis. Available to teaching in the areas of Brighton & Hove, and Oxford.

Methodology

Always build upon what you know. My preferred method of teaching involves drawing upon easily digestible examples, and how they relate to the content at hand. Looking at the simple case can really help guide ones understanding of the general problem!

Experience

I obtained my mathematics BSc at the University of Sussex, followed by a mathematics DPhil (PhD) at the University of Oxford.
During my time at Oxford I took part in many teaching opportunities, and have designed and lectured my own syllabus at a Cambridge based summer school.
