About me

I have plenty of experience of tutoring GCSE, A-level and Pre-U Mathematics and sciences, I also provide help with UCAS application including Oxford MAT and Cambridge CSAT. I have tutored students from schools including Eton, Wycombe Abbey, Rugby, Dulwich, JAGS; many of whom have entered Oxbridge and other world class universities.


I achieved First Class degree in Physics from UCL with a year spent at the University of Washington. I am now pursuing a Master’s degree in Computational Chemistry. In high school, I achieved A* in Further Maths, Maths and A in Physics and Chemistry. I also obtained gold medals for UKMT Senior Maths Challenge and AS British Physics Olympiad.


I'm also an avid musician, I have performed piano concertos with professional orchestras and sung jazz at the Adelphi Theatre. I am also a freelance photographer.

About my sessions

Tutoring is very much an interactive process and I see three steps in my tutoring method.


1. Explain difficult topics in textbooks and help my tutee with assigned work from school. Conceptual understanding is much more important than memorizing a particular method.

2. Deliver a custom-made course of the exam syllabus, offering much more clarity and depth compared to lessons at school. Supply information on more practical uses of the knowledge.

3. Act as a guide for my tutees to develop independent problem-solving skills and learning pattern which would maximize their own potential.


The tutoring approach will evolve during the course of tutorials to make sure all three steps are covered and all the specific needs of my tutee are met. Due to my younger age, I have been told that I engage better with the tutees and I am confident with explaining topics clearly and delivering easy-going and effective sessions.

Questions Zitong has answered

How to complete the square

Completing the square refers to the process of rewriting a general quadratic expression into the form of a(x+b)2 + c.For example we are asked to complete the square for 2x2+ 4x + 5. The best way to do this is to expand the expression and compare the coefficients.1:Expansiona(x+b)2 + c = ax2+2abx+ab2+c, notice that the coefficient of x2 is a, the coefficient of x is 2ab and the coefficient of x0 (constant term) is ab2+c. 2:Compare the coefficient. Since the completed square form has to be the same as the original expression, we can see that a = 2, 2ab = 4, and ab2+c = 5. We can then work out b = 1 and c = 3. The answer is therefore 2(x+1)2 + 3. If you want to check this, you can expand this and it will be 2x2+ 4x + 5.
