While teaching maths, I avoid powerpoints and slides. Maths is best taught on pen and paper (for upto 4-5 students) or black/white board (more than 5 students). I like to take the students step by step through the process, working out the details in front of them. At the end of the class, I give them fully written handouts which they can consult later. I also make it a point that they understand general principles so that they can apply what they learn to solve other similar problems in the exam, not just those that I taught them. The mode of delivery can either be in person (if student is in Oxford) or else online through video call. For statistics, I provide hands on training and demonstrations, so student should have a laptop for that, even if the session is face to face in Oxford.
I am a scientist at the University of Oxford. I have a PhD and I research and teach Maths/Stats at the University. But in my spare time, I also like to tutor and mentor students to make them strong in these subjects.
1) Tutor/Demonstrator at University of Oxford, UK (2019 to present)
I teach maths/stats and computer science to university undergrads both one-to-one (tutoring) as well as small groups (in the lab). This is part of my full time research job at the university as a postdoctoral scientist. I also teach the same to high school students part-time (evenings and weekend).
2) Tutor/Demonstrator at University of Otago, NZ (2016 to 2019)
While doing my PhD, I also taught (part-time) maths/stats and computer science to university undergrads. I also taught the same to high school students part-time (evening and weekends).
3) Data Scientist at HPSNZ, Govt of New Zealand (2016-2019)
Again, while doing my PhD, I worked part-time as a statistical analyst or data scientist at High Performance Sport NZ, where I analysed NZ national sports data for the government.
I completed my PhD from University of Otago, New Zealand. My previous degrees were BEng and MEng. Areas of study has been engineering, mathematics/statistics and computer science. I received a full scholarship for 3 years from the Government of New Zealand for my PhD. My PhD project received the Diane Campbell Hunt Memorial Award for contribution to ecological conservation of New Zealand.
