About me


I am currently in my first year studying Mathematics at Cambridge. I tutored over 20 students during my gap year in maths, chemistry and physics from KS3 to A Level. Having gone through the process and the same exams as you have, I understand what a student might find hard about it and can teach them any tips and tricks that I have learnt. I can also provide any specialist preparation in olympiads, MAT or STEP.


I have achieved 4A* at A Level, graduating from Tiffin School, and achieved a 97 UMS average in Maths and Further Maths. I have achieved a distinction in the BMO in Year 12 and 13 and also attained medals in the IMO from years 9 to 11. I achieved S,S in STEP 2 and 3.


I am very friendly and approachable, and aim to make my sessions enjoyable by tailoring my lessons for them. I will ensure that the student is confident in their work and ensure that they exceed their targets.

About my sessions

I will mainly be using past exam questions to ensure that the student is ready for these types of questions. We will occasionally do some timed questions and short tests to ensure that your knowledge is sound. I will mainly focus on your weak points and also help you with any exam technique. I hope that we have relaxed learning environment where you will be comfortable asking any questions.

Questions Jim has answered

integrate 1/(x^2+4x+13)

The first step is to notice that this is a standard integral in the form of 1/(x^2+a^2). In order to reach this form, we must first complete the square. Then we have 1/(x+2)^2-4+13=1/(x+2)^2+9. We can then use the substitution u = x+2. du=dx to obtain 1/u^2+3^2, our required form. Using a formula booklet, we see that this integrates into 1/3 arctan(u/3). We then substitute for u giving 1/3 arctan(x+2)/3The first step is to notice that this is a standard integral in the form of 1/(x^2+a^2).
