Warwick University student offering tutoring in Maths up to university level in the Coventry area

Methodology

My method is less exam-focused and more comprehension-focused. First I make sure they know how to solve the problem, then I explain how and why it works. I am quite patient, so if this process requires more than one session I will keep notes to make sure the student isn't getting lost or falling behind. Of course passing exams is always the priority but comprehension helps when you're under pressure... Like, in an exam!

I will focus on developing understanding and confidence. When both are achieved, exams won't seem so intimidating :)

Background

I did my work experience teaching music to young children. Also I have a habit of explaining complicated maths ideas to my friends, which they sometimes actually enjoy. I have a passion for mathematics that tends to be contagious and am often told that I am a good teacher.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £10/h

Details

I may add charges for travelling if I am coming to your home. Not for the free lesson though, and it shouldn't cost too much.

I have known Rowan personally for many years and ever since I've known him I've thought a great deal of him; he is a very friendly and approachable guy and has been more than willing to take things right back to basics and explain various aspects of mathematics to me in plain English, helping me to understand problems I've been stuck on for some time several times in the past. He is a great listener and communicator and one of the most knowledgeable people on natural mathematics that I know of.
