About me

I am a patient listener and have an excellent understanding of the subjects I teach, especially mathematics, which I have studied rigorously throughout my time at university and at school. I graduated from Oxford in July with a masters degree, and have published a paper in mathematical cryptography (see here: https://eprint.iacr.org/2017/1160).

I have tutored maths on a personal level for a number of years, and can help at all levels from GCSE up to A level and Oxbridge applications. I love teaching maths because it inspires me to see students work their way through problems they once found difficult. Maths is confusing for everyone at some level, but I believe that everyone can progress with the right guidance and willingness to work at it!

I believe in creating a strong tutor/student rapport; I feel this is the best way to help foster the enthusiasm in students required for learning.

Most importantly, I create a fun learning environment for my tutees so we can work together towards success.

A little bit about me personally: I love playing and talking about football and sport in general. I am a professional scuba diving instructor, so have experience teaching outside the classroom as well, and adapt methods I have learnt for teaching diving to teaching students online. I enjoy playing the guitar and trying to sing along (much to the annoyance of my friends and relatives!)

About my sessions

I will centre most of our lessons around building towards answering past paper questions on the topics you would like to cover. This means I'll start by finding out how comfortable you are with the material, covering the theory by going through some basic examples together, and then trying to move onto the more difficult examples in past papers. When you are comfortable, I'll set a few bonus questions for you to go over in your own time for when we next meet, as a way to measure your progress and ensure you reach your targets!

Generally, I aim to cover material from the ground up, ensuring you have the strong base knowledge required to reach your goals, and am entirely adaptable towards you when it comes to teaching! We will work together to find the best way for you to learn, and have fun while doing so!

I recommend using Daniel for mock interviews, especially if you are applying to Oxford. He has already been through the process and so knows exactly what style of questions to ask.

Amazing help with the MAT exam, went through multiple papers very thoroughly so I could understand all of the questions.

Questions Daniel has answered

Can you explain what a logarithm is?

We can think of taking the logarithm base a of a number b (logab) as "the number of times we need to multiply a by itself to get b". So for example, log2 16 = 4, since we need to multiply 2 by itself 4 times to get 16 (2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 16, or 24 = 16).In more detail, logarithms are the inverse operations to exponentiation. This means that if you are given a number x and told to raise y to the power of x to get z, then logy z = x. i.e. if we have the operation "raise y to the power of ___", then performing the operation "take the logarithm base y" gives us back our original input ____. So if yx = z, then performing the inverse operation to both sides gives us back x: logy yx = logy z ==> x = logy zWe can think of taking the logarithm base a of a number b (logab) as "the number of times we need to multiply a by itself to get b".
