About me

As a Physics student I encounter maths on a daily basis. It's a daunting subject for many and I hope, for the students I teach, I can change the way they think about maths. I want to spread the enjoyment and fulfilment I get when tackling pages of numbers and help people overcome the fear of complex equations and graphs. Throughout my school life maths was an area I wanted to pursue further, partaking in additional research and always looking to improve and fine-tune my skills.

Throughout my school life maths was an area I wanted to pursue further, partaking in additional research and always looking to improve and fine-tune my skills.


I've taken a lot of maths exams while I was at school, and even while I'm at Uni! They are hard, but not impossible. With help anyone can tackle even the hardest questions by working slowly, carefully and in a comfortable environment created by the teacher. I think this is the most important part of any lesson. Having the confidence to just 'have a go' isn't something everyone possesses but is something everyone can gain.


I also enjoy creating and playing music. I play guitar and drums. I love going to the gym regularly and spending time with friends. A healthy balance of work and play is an important part of everyone's life.

About my sessions

My lessons will be a in a relaxed environment that will make it easy for my students to answer questions with confidence. Getting an answer wrong is not something to be scared of and is actually the first step to improving your skills in maths. Being able to explain your method and how you reached your final answer is an important skill that will help you not only find your mistakes but most importantly also get to the correct answer and bag those precious marks!

My lessons will be a in a relaxed environment that will make it easy for my students to answer questions with confidence. Getting an answer wrong is not something to be scared of and is actually the first step to improving your skills in maths. Being able to explain your method and how you reached your final answer is an important skill that will help you not only find your mistakes but most importantly also get to the correct answer and bag those precious marks!


I will discuss with students from the outset how they would like their lessons structured and where they feel they require the most support to allow me to forward plan for the most effective use of our time. However working on topics that they find easy wont help them climb the grade ladder! I will encourage students to stretch themselves to help them achieve the highest grade possible.


It is important for students to complete past papers to assist me in identifying areas that students need extra support in and for me to track their progress. I will give questions to practice on after our lessons and to come back with so that if further help on a topic is required I can give that to you. When working on a new topic a gradual progression from the basics to advanced techniques is an effective way to fully grasp each concept. Once the theory has been taught applying the knowledge is the next step. I am open to any method that the student finds most comfortable!
