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 :)
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.
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.
Postgraduate Mathematics student at Warwick University, with a Distinction at Grade 8 for the violin (ABRSM). I am an enthusiastic and creative explainer who enjoys the process of breaking down complex ideas in Mathematics, Physics and Music into simple chunks then rebuilding them in order to help people better understand them. I am also fluent in English, French and Welsh.

I’m known Rowan for most of my life and he’s an absolute legend. He’s a really fun guy to be with, full of enthusiasm and always has something interesting to say. I think he’s a very trustworthy tutor because he’s got so much passion and always wants to share it with others.
Rowan is such a friendly, patient and approachable person who is passionate about learning and makes for an excellent tutor.
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.
