About me

I'm currently studying Mathematics at Exeter as part of an integrated Masters course. Having achieved A*s in Maths, Further Maths and Physics at A-level, I decided that maths is what I really enjoy and wanted to continue with it at university. I'm passionate about all aspects of maths and particularly how it can be applied in the real world. I love how almost anything we experience in everyday life is built on mathematics, from weather forecasts to populations of species in the wild,...

I'm currently studying Mathematics at Exeter as part of an integrated Masters course. Having achieved A*s in Maths, Further Maths and Physics at A-level, I decided that maths is what I really enjoy and wanted to continue with it at university. I'm passionate about all aspects of maths and particularly how it can be applied in the real world. I love how almost anything we experience in everyday life is built on mathematics, from weather forecasts to populations of species in the wild, and it's this excitement that I hope I'm able to pass onto you.

Having only just gone through A-levels myself, I know exactly the kind of hard work and dedication that is needed to achieve your targets. Over the past several years of tutoring I’ve improved communication skills that are vital in explaining problems in a clear and logical way. By teaching you the problem-solving skills I've learnt over the years, I aim to give you all the support you need to achieve the best possible result which it comes to those final exams.

About my sessions

My sessions are all about flexibility. It is important to me that we focus on the particular areas of the course that you struggle with, so in our first meeting we can discuss this and plan our sessions according to your needs. What will make our sessions successful is ensuring that you are learning in a way that is suitable for you. So, my priority is to get to know you and what methods of teaching you will respond best to, be that working through past questions or me explaining the basic co...

My sessions are all about flexibility. It is important to me that we focus on the particular areas of the course that you struggle with, so in our first meeting we can discuss this and plan our sessions according to your needs. What will make our sessions successful is ensuring that you are learning in a way that is suitable for you. So, my priority is to get to know you and what methods of teaching you will respond best to, be that working through past questions or me explaining the basic concepts which we will then build on. Most students learn with a mixture of the two and it is my aim to bring both into my sessions.

From my experience at school and in my own revision, learning a concept and then applying it to exam style questions will lead to a better understanding as you can see straight away how it will come up in exams. When it comes closer to the end of the year and we have covered in detail any particularly tricky topics, I like to move onto past papers as I have found they can bring together several topics into one question and it is important that you are prepared for anything that could possibly come up.

My son is having KS3 Maths lessons with Jake and has had 8 lessons so far . He thoroughly enjoys his lessons and his confidence has improved . Jake is perfectly amiable and patient and adapts the lesson according to the pupil. I have no hesitation in recommending him.
