About me

Hi, I'm Sam and I'm a fourth year mathematics student at Durham University. In terms of my academic background, I achieved an A* at GCSE maths, before going on to study maths and further maths at A level and obtaining a high A* in both. I am currently on track for a first class degree. I am interested in all areas of my subject, particularly the applied side; I am planning on a future career in financial services having spent several years working for the Royal Bank of Canada in the C...

Hi, I'm Sam and I'm a fourth year mathematics student at Durham University. In terms of my academic background, I achieved an A* at GCSE maths, before going on to study maths and further maths at A level and obtaining a high A* in both. I am currently on track for a first class degree. I am interested in all areas of my subject, particularly the applied side; I am planning on a future career in financial services having spent several years working for the Royal Bank of Canada in the City of London.


I have had a lot of experience tutoring in the past. One of my proudest achievements was having a student moved up from 3rd set to top set in maths after 6 months of tutoring him. I have also had 3 years using the mytutor interface and making the most of online tuition.


I have also held other positions of responsibility including being president of my secondary school's council and head boy at my sixth form. Outside of my studies, I love to travel - I recently journeyed through Europe and took part in an expedition to Tanzania a few years ago. I'm involved in long-distance walking, and had a brilliant time trekking the 192 mile coast to coast path across Britain.

About my sessions

I'm very willing to tailor what I teach to each individual's needs. Whether you already know the topics you're struggling on and need some in depth sessions, or you're looking for more general guidance across the board, I'm here to help. I will take time to identify your personal needs, strengths and weaknesses so sessions can be planned to suit you. I believe in mentoring people to think for themselves. I am happy to answer as many questions as needed and to explain how I...

I'm very willing to tailor what I teach to each individual's needs. Whether you already know the topics you're struggling on and need some in depth sessions, or you're looking for more general guidance across the board, I'm here to help. I will take time to identify your personal needs, strengths and weaknesses so sessions can be planned to suit you. I believe in mentoring people to think for themselves. I am happy to answer as many questions as needed and to explain how I would go about solving problems myself, in order to give you the skills you need to be confident. I understand what it's like to be completely lost and have plenty of patience for anyone who is struggling. I aim to make all my sessions thought-provoking and fun - I guarantee you will come away feeling you have gained a lot from them.


If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch. Hoping to see you in the classroom soon :)

Very clear and helpful Tutorials with Sam, he is always well prepared for each lesson and my daughter has found these sessions very useful and informative. Sam has certainly been a great help in the lead up to Jessica's GCSE's and she has enjoyed learning from him. I would highly recommend Sam to anyone needing help with Maths.
