I believe that young people are more capable than they often give themselves credit for. Under conditions and an environment in which they feel more comfortable, people are able to wildly exceed the limitations that they can feel from themselves or others.
I hope to take students and show them that they have what it takes to exceed in maths, even if they don't consider themselves a "maths" person. I like to teach through examples, providing well defined steps to ensure that we can pin point what the student understands and where they are having difficulty. I often tell students that "Everything is difficult until you know how to do". This is something I've experienced first hand many times in my life; I believe something to be too difficult until I properly learn it. Then, upon reflection, I see how it wasn't so bad all along. This is the destination where I wish to help students get to, where they can look back on everything and realise it wasn't too difficult for them after all, they just needed some help along the way.
Shane is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
I graduated from my masters in Mathematics and Statistics from University of Manchester in the summer of 2020. During this time, I studied Mathematics Education while also holding Study sessions for first years.
I am now working as a Statistician in the University of Oxford and do tutoring on the evenings and weekends. I have been giving tutoring sessions since September of 2020.
Perfect! Shane is an exceptional maths/statistics tutor, would recommend highly!
Perfect! Shane, is a very good math tutor. He can solve the University statistics questions so quick even without I noticed and I hope that he will have more times to solve more questions. Thank you so much !
Perfect! Shane is excellent at explaining difficult theories and is patient to work through topics with me that I find difficult . He always comes well prepared and is great at checking that I understand each topic.
We discussed statistical concepts used frequently in higher education, such as hypothesis testing and logistic regression
Perfect! Shane taught me Year 2 A level Maths. His delivery was excellent which really helped me understand this difficult subject. His is very knowledgeable in Maths and I highly recommended him
We had productive discussions surrounding proof by contradiction, proof by contrapositive and the roles of rational/irrational numbers
Shane really took time to find out what exactly is needed and to prepare for the lesson! Very thoughtful and thorough approach. I recommend Shane with pleasure.
Shane helped me a lot at university (he was in the year above and part of the peer tutoring scheme). He took difficult concepts and explained them in a way which made sense to me. He was really good at picking up on my personal style of learning and what does and doesn't work well for me.
Shane is an incredibly Maths/Statistics tutor. He gives a lot of examples, goes through the intuition, and thoroughly prepared my for my exam. I would definitely recommend him - 10/10.
Shane is excellent at explaining difficult theories and is patient to work through topics I find difficult. He is always well prepared for each lesson and is great at checking if I understand everything ok.
Shane is very knowedgebale in Maths as exemplified by his maths degree from a top class university. He spent a lot of time preparing for the lesson and asked in advance so he could prepare better to make the lesson more useful. Highly recommended. He was on time for the lesson and is very reliable.
