About me

Hello! I'm Gabriel, I'm 19 and from Leeds, and I'm a second year Mathematics student at Durham University. I've always loved Maths, one of my favourite things about my subject is the way that concepts from all over the subject appear in places you wouldn't expect them to! I also love how beautiful Maths can be when you look beyond the simple algebraic equations you see at GCSE; fractals are a fantastic example. I am experienced in both GCSE and A level Maths and Further Ma...

Hello! I'm Gabriel, I'm 19 and from Leeds, and I'm a second year Mathematics student at Durham University. I've always loved Maths, one of my favourite things about my subject is the way that concepts from all over the subject appear in places you wouldn't expect them to! I also love how beautiful Maths can be when you look beyond the simple algebraic equations you see at GCSE; fractals are a fantastic example. I am experienced in both GCSE and A level Maths and Further Maths, having taken all these subjects recently (GCSEs in summer 2016 and A levels in summer 2018), so I know how the exams work and the content is still fresh in my mind! I enjoy teaching as it is a very effective way for me to reinforce my own learning whilst helping others to understand more about Maths. Outside of my degree I'm a keen musician, I play piano and bass, as well as singing, and I'm a member of various musical groups such as Symphony Orchestra, Folk Music Society and I'm in a band! I also love sport, especially football and cricket, and I'm a big Newcastle United fan.

About my sessions

With Mathematics exams I find that the main way of doing well is understanding basic concepts of Maths, such as algebraic manipulation or differentiation, as these can always be applied in many situations - even places you wouldn't expect! Explaining the reasons behind why things happen is a big part of this, all too often at school you are told to use a mathematical result without any explanation, which is often confusing, so I will ensure students are taught the reasons why mathematical...

With Mathematics exams I find that the main way of doing well is understanding basic concepts of Maths, such as algebraic manipulation or differentiation, as these can always be applied in many situations - even places you wouldn't expect! Explaining the reasons behind why things happen is a big part of this, all too often at school you are told to use a mathematical result without any explanation, which is often confusing, so I will ensure students are taught the reasons why mathematical concepts work.


Maths is very easy to measure progress in, as the best way to get better at Maths is to practice! Exam style questions help reinforce learning and ensure the student can apply mathematical concepts to the questions you would get in an exam. Being able to explain how you reached an answer to another person is also very important as it shows whether you truly understand the question or not, so I would encourage students to practice explaining their answers to me!


Lessons would be based partly on explanation of important ideas that may not have been fully understood in class, and also on working through exam style questions with tutor support.
