About me

Hi! I'm Tom and I'm in my final year of studying Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh. I've always enjoyed learning Maths because of the fantastic simplicity of the manner in which it underpins the world around us day to day: such as how the relationship between two probability distributions tells us why buses come in threes.

I think the problem with how Maths is taught in schools is that this connection to the real world is lost; throughout my extensive tutoring experience I've found that reestablishing this connection is the key to improving your confidence in your own abilities. I'll try to nurture this confidence to help you achieve the results you're capable of.

About my sessions

During our lessons we will go over what you have learnt in school each week, discussing exercises and homework questions. Getting the correct answer is less important than understanding how you got there, so we will walk through each method together to re-enforce your understanding. At the end of each lesson I will give you a few questions to check you have fully understood everything, and at the beginning of the following lesson we will briefly recap what we covered last time, and reiterate...

Maths is very individual so it's important that everyone can go at their own pace. I will tailor my lessons to you to make sure you don't feel like you're falling behind. We will focus more on those parts of the syllabus you struggle most with, and we will go over everything as many times as you need until you feel like you have fully understood and are ready to move on.

Alison Parent from Tayport

9 Aug

Mild panic set in when my son failed his Higher Maths Prelim! He had gained an A at Nat 5 level but was clearly struggling with the step up to Higher level. Over the course of 12wks Tom gave my son 1-2-1 online tuition (once a week) which resulted in my son gaining a B in the final Higher Maths exam. Delighted with the progress achieved.
