If there's one thing you ought to know about me, it's that I love mathematics. From simple word problems to integrating complex functions, mathematics is a powerful (and beautiful) tool in understanding the world we live in.

I believe the key to success in mathematics is a combination of a strong and thorough understanding of the theory underlying a topic, along with plenty of practice applying it to real exam questions. I aim to develop this complete understanding with my students by introducing a topic from first principles, building upon the student's existing knowledge,

I encourage my students to be active thinkers, considering the properties of each problem carefully, before rushing into a solution method that could lead them to doing loads of unnecessary work. I will often present and work through more than one approach to solving a problem: this is an important aspect of teaching mathematics, as it enables students to bring in techniques from a wide range of topics when they are faced with a question that doesn't fit the pattern of standard textbook examples.

About my sessions

Prior to the online lessons, I will contact you to discuss the needs and goals of you/the student and plan so we can spend as much time as possible doing maths. If you are struggling understanding the theory of a topic and how the maths works, I'll recommend we use the lesson to re-introduce the topic and all its intricacies, doing some short practice questions throughout to make sure you're getting it. If you are having trouble applying the theory to exam questions, we could either u...

Prior to the online lessons, I will contact you to discuss the needs and goals of you/the student and plan so we can spend as much time as possible doing maths. If you are struggling understanding the theory of a topic and how the maths works, I'll recommend we use the lesson to re-introduce the topic and all its intricacies, doing some short practice questions throughout to make sure you're getting it. If you are having trouble applying the theory to exam questions, we could either use the lesson to work through some practice problems together, or you could try some questions beforehand and we'll work through any difficulties you had whilst doing them. After each session, I will send you a summary document of the content covered as well as some additional practice questions to try for no extra charge.

During the sessions, I will encourage the student to always ask questions so that they understand what is going on at every point; for example, instead of simply accepting that the derivative of ln(x) is 1/x when we use it, we would spend a few minutes working through the proof, which provides valuable insight into how the mathematics works, meaning that, when exam time comes around, more is understood and much less needs to be learnt to use parrot-fashion.

I would like to thank Sam very much for tutoring my son in year 13. The new curriculum was challenging, but with Sam’s help my son could achieve a very good grade and was happy with his final result. Sam was always very polite, has deep knowledge and always ready and I would recommend him to any student who wishes to achieve high grades in Maths. I can’t thank you enough and wish you all the best! Dina

Donna - parent Sam was a great help to my daughter. She found her lessons with Sam Useful and informative. She learned techniques and topics that were on the spec but not taught at college. She felt she gained a solid grasp on formulas and their application and also consolidated her existing knowledge. Lessons were structured and extra work set when required. He improved her confidence and also went through exam techniques. Any technical glitches were dealt with immediately but this was not a frequent occurrence. Any messages or questions in between sessions were answered very promptly and politely. Sam was flexible in his availability when needed and overall has been an excellent tutor for my daughter and I would highly recommend. Thank you Sam.
