About me

I'm a student studying Physics at Loughborough University. For many years I myself struggled with maths and physics and it took a long time for it to 'click', and so I know that feeling of stress that it can bring about, but the sense of achievement that arrives at the completion of any difficult problem is something I want to share with those I tutor.

About my sessions

My sessions will focus on helping the student figure out the answer themselves, as not only does it help foster a feeling of confidence, it makes the lesson much more easily remembered. Not knowing how to approach a question or getting the answer wrong is not a bad thing at all, and in fact just giving it a go is usually one of the best ways of learning! Questions will be approached in a methodical but relaxed manner, with a real emphasis trying to pick apart the wording so the student knows...

My sessions will focus on helping the student figure out the answer themselves, as not only does it help foster a feeling of confidence, it makes the lesson much more easily remembered. Not knowing how to approach a question or getting the answer wrong is not a bad thing at all, and in fact just giving it a go is usually one of the best ways of learning! Questions will be approached in a methodical but relaxed manner, with a real emphasis trying to pick apart the wording so the student knows exactly what needs to be done, and not get caught up in jargon.


In the beginning, students will be asked how they would like the lessons to be structured and what they would like to work on. Together we will form an outline of how best to use our time and which topics to tackle.


Students are free to come to me with any of their own questions and queries, or I can find the appropriate level exam paper and take them through the questions. Students often have their own way of doing things and I will structure my lessons around their preferences. Having your own way of tackling problems isn't an issue and is actually the mark of a good mathematician!

The teaching was very good as he helped me to understand everything I did not and he was very friendly so the sessions were very enjoyable. I have confidence that I can get a good grade in my GCSE after the sessions I have had with Michael
