My teaching method is to encourage the students to discover Maths for themselves, thus re-creating in the classroom the role of a professional mathematician. I prefer this approach over instructional methods as I believe that students will retain knowledge discovered for themselves for longer than information that they have been told by someone else.
I have taught Maths for six years: Two years in a private school in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and four years in an Oxford state-funded secondary school. I am a qualified teacher with a PGCE (Secondary Maths) from Oxford Brookes University, I also have a BSc (HONS) from Edinburgh University.

Ivan is a patient and helpful tutor. He is able to convey his knowledge of complex math in a manner that is easily understood by students. I will definitely recommend him as a tutor.
Ivan changed the way I looked at Math, from a negative to a positive. Am glad to have had him as a teacher. Highly reccommend him if you want a teacher/tutor who really gets you to a place of understanding!
