About me

I am a third year Mathematics Undergraduate at Balliol College, Oxford University.In school I was very keen on extracurricular maths- I achieved a distinction in the British Mathematical Olympiad Round 1. I have experience with the Oxford Mathematics Admissions Test. I am also happy to teach the IB syllabus.

I have had experience tutoring GCSE maths and A Level Maths and Further for the last summer in London. I also tutored KS3 students whilst in my sixth form.

-Tutored a International Chinese Student with the MAT applying for maths at Oxford during summer of 2015 via "Teamviewer" (passed MAT and reached interview stage)

-Online tutor for mytutor for the school's programme in the previous academic year

-I have had much experience learning online as a student- mostly when I was applying to university. I often watched videos such as Khan Academy so I know what a great online learning experience feels like. Even now while at university I regularly use things like MIT opencourseware for video lectures and the slightly more interactive format too to supplement my live classes, tutorials and lectures.

About my sessions

Tutoring Approach
Friendly and very encouraging. I have had experience giving remedial lessons to younger students falling a little behind at school and also to stronger students so can adapt approach well.  One challenge is students who doubt their abilities or are afraid to get a question wrong. I constantly encourage that mistakes are okay, and they shouldn`t be afraid to tackle a difficult problem. I often find that it takes a lot of experimenting with stupid, less fruitful ideas in order to reach a brilliant one. Prompt when stuck and hold belief that it is the journey to solving the problem that is most important than the final answer and most fun of course :) Despite being guilty of not doing this many times in my young mathematical career- It is important to realise that Mathematics is not a spectator sport- much of learning comes from actively solving many problems.

Nahom helped me prepare for the MAT and boosted my confidence before the exam. The lessons were great and were extremely helpful in improving my understanding of many mathematical concepts as well as improving my multiple choice technique. Overall, a brilliant tutor.
