Degree: Natural Sciences (Mathematics and Philosophy) (Bachelors) - Durham University
I’ve been tutoring maths full time since I graduated from Durham University (Mathematics and Philosophy) in 2014 and I have learnt a lot in that time. My experience means that I can effectively tailor lesson plans to individual students needs. I have also become used to recognising any weaknesses students might have in the basics and over time I have built up a backlog of methods for addressing these as and when they arise.
Instead of simply reiterating methods students may have covered in classes I focus on getting students to explain their thought processes as we work through problems; this way students can tackle a variety of questions, instead of just memorising techniques.
Most of all I thoroughly enjoy tutoring and getting to know my students. For me, helping to build confidence is key, I want my students to be able to go on and tackle classwork and exams confidently outside of our lessons.
I’m free Monday-Thursday evenings but if you are looking for a different time, maybe even during the daytime, please let me know as I am very flexible.
I look forward to hearing from you.

My favourite way to remember whether my answer is positive or negative when I multiply two numbers is to think of the following:
a) If you multiply two numbers with the SAME sign (i.e. two positive numbers or two negative numbers) the result will be POSITIVE.
+ x + = +
- x - = +
b) If you multiple two numbers with OPPOSITE signs the result will be NEGATIVE.
- x + = +
+ x - = +
6 x 2 = 12
-6 x -2 = 12
-6 x 2 = -12
6 x -2 = -12see more
