Recently graduated with a master's degree in physics, offering maths tutoring in the York area

Methodology


I really care about helping the student improve and succeed. I believe in patience, friendliness and kindness during tuition, but very much value perseverance of both tutor and student. I like to put great effort and thought into what I'm doing with them. Each individual student will vary on what they need to focus on and in what proportions - background theory, preliminary questions or past papers. Sometimes a topic will have to be approached from different angles to bring about understanding and I believe my patience and creativity in this area help.

As well as understanding the actual maths, I also feel it is vital to understand the exam process - where marks are given in exams and what the examiner likes to see. I look through past exams and use my experience of exams from my own studies. I then always try to give the student consistent processes to repeat when it comes to exams so they maximise their number of marks.

Experience

Hi - I'm Joseph. I achieved a First Class Masters degree in Physics at the University of York. I love to help people maximise their potential, finding particular joy in helping with maths - I always get pleasure from seeing someone can now do a particular area of maths by themselves after my help. I take great pride in any work I do, always striving to do my best.

In my spare time I love to read, watch films and play football and, when I get the opportunity, to lay on a beach.


I have volunteered to help several people with their maths studies in my free time and I really found it very satisfying.

I recently tutored a family friend's daughter online (video chat) about 2-3 times a week in her final year of her VWO studies (highest level of secondary education in the Netherlands - similar to A-Levels). She has an educational learning difficulty called dyscalculia, a condition which makes it difficult to acquire mathematical skills (along the lines of dyslexia, but for maths). She was a very promising student in Philosophy and History and planned to go to Leiden University but needed to pass Maths in her final year to do so (in the Dutch system a wide range of subjects need to be passed, unlike UK A-Levels). I'm happy to say to she passed and is studying Philosophy at Leiden University in August 2018. I feel this opportunity gave me a great experience of adapting my teaching style to suit someone with learning difficulties.

I helped my brother with his GCSE maths. My strength has always been in maths/science subjects whereas my brother found it more difficult, but I worked through different maths topics with him, before helping with example questions and past papers.

I also helped a younger student at the University of York whilst I completed my Masters project, in particular helping him with the physics behind the project I was completing, since he would later be doing a similar project around that subject area.
