About Me 

Hi, I'm Joe, a third year mathematics student studying at Bath. I am a friendly, approachable and patient tutor who takes pride in making mathematics easy and understandable for students of all abilities. As I have recently left sixth form and am now at university, I am still familiar with exam techniques as well as the best ways to manage time and nerves during exam periods. 

University maths has given me a new perspecitve on the subject, and I have gained an insight into how many things that are assumed at A Level are proved and derived, which I find greatly helps when describing new ideas to students.

I spent the 2018/19 academic year on a placement year in the asset management industry, where I will be returning full-time in August 2020, so I can help with any questions about careers in finance, banking or technology.

Academic Credentials 

I'm an accomplished mathematician, currently working at towards a first class degree (70%+) with an average of 76.7%. In June 2016 I achieved A* grades in A Level Maths, Further Maths as well as Economics. As part of this I scored 100/100 UMS in five Maths/Further Maths modules: Core 3/4, Mechanics 1/2 and Further Pure 3. I also have 5 A* and 4 A grades at GCSE including an A* in Maths, scoring 97%.

About my sessions

My Approach To Tutoring

I am experienced in tutoring students in an enjoyable way as this is often the best way of explaining maths. A typical session involves the student coming to me with a particular topic. We begin with an exam question, where I explain my own thoughts, as well as warnings of common mistakes and how to verify correct answers in the exam. I then give the student some questions to go through, giving them more independence as the session goes on. My 60...

We begin with an exam question, where I explain my own thoughts, as well as warnings of common mistakes and how to verify correct answers in the exam. I then give the student some questions to go through, giving them more independence as the session goes on. My 600+ five star reviews at the bottom of this page show that this approach has been effective for several students.

My Tutoring Experience 

I am a very experienced tutor, having tutored during sixth form before joining the website in October 2016. I have tutored students from the United States to Brunei and several locations in between, also helping mature students. This means that regardless of your ability, I have almost certainly helped out somebody in your situation! I am able to teach all Maths modules as well as most Further Maths modules. Although I took my exams on the old specification, I am fully familiar with the new system as well as the content required as I've encountered much of it at university. Thanks for looking at my profile, please send me a message and I'll get back to you as soon as possible!

Joe has been helping my daughter with A Level maths for a few months now as she was struggling to achieve the grades she needs to apply for her chosen university. The jump from a grade 8 at GCSE to the standard required for A level has been difficult and my daughter's confidence was suffering. Joe recommended teaching "ahead" so that she goes into lessons already confident in the subject matter and this approach had made a huge difference, making her independent work after lessons more productive. She is happier and enjoying maths again.

Joe is a remarkable young man. My son feels he has built up a good relationship with Joe, and is really positive about his tutorials. He was able to explain to me a long and complex maths equation this evening, his new enthusiasm for maths is all down to the ''Joe effect"

My son has been working weekly with Joe for the last two months, supporting and coaching him ready for his Mock Maths papers. Josh had previously been really struggling with the subject and with confidence around maths generally. We had fifth form parents' evening last night and my son's Maths tutor was incredibly pleased with his sudden improved performance. Her exact opening words were: "I am extremely impressed with Josh's work lately, he got the top marks in the class by far...." This is incredible progress - I know he is not in the highest set, but we were so proud of him and grateful to Joe for helping him reach his full potential. He absolutely would not have got there without Joe's help and wants to continue working together to help him further in readiness for the actual GCSEs. Booking Joe was such a good move, we haven't looked back since and would highly recommend him to others.

Today wasn't my best day at maths but Joe was very patient and helped me get through it. Fully undertsand the sketching graphs topic. I haven't done much extra work outside of the tutorial so most of what I have learnt has come from Joe. Great session!
