Hi! I’m Sanmay, and I’m in my third year of studying Maths at Oxford University, achieving a first in my first 2 years. I love how surprising and widely applicable maths is, and I would love to help you enjoy maths too!

A big problem with school learning is how little emphasis is placed on understanding, in favour of restrictive methods of solving problems and memorisation. With a wider understanding of the mechanisms of maths, we can apply our knowledge to a lot more scenarios. This will help you adapt to unfamiliar question formats, cope well with exams and effectively use maths in other contexts.


When I was at sixth form, I tutored one of my friends at A-level maths, while I did Further Maths. By focussing on understanding, and why each step in a method is important, he became much better at the weird questions, and more consistent overall. With weekly sessions, he raised his grade from a D/E to an A, even scoring 99 in M1!


Working together, you can achieve your potential, and see your grades soar!

About my sessions

I will tailor each lesson according to your needs, whether it be exam preparation, help with homework or recapping topics. In the introductory session, we can discuss what you’d like to cover in each lesson, and ask me any questions you may have, and I will prepare a suitable selection of questions/discussion points. 


As a loose suggestion, a good general structure is:


1)Before each session, we would have a quick chat about what we wanted to do in it, so...

I will tailor each lesson according to your needs, whether it be exam preparation, help with homework or recapping topics. In the introductory session, we can discuss what you’d like to cover in each lesson, and ask me any questions you may have, and I will prepare a suitable selection of questions/discussion points. 


As a loose suggestion, a good general structure is:


1)Before each session, we would have a quick chat about what we wanted to do in it, so I could prepare a couple of past papers/example questions. 

2)I'll introduce the key points from the topic very briefly and you let me know which bits you'd like to do in more detail.

3)We look at some examples from the topic and think about why each step was performed.

4) Then you'll do a few questions, and I'll help out and discuss steps when necessary.

We would progress from simpler to tougher questions, and eventually past paper questions.

5) It might also be helpful to do some questions on your own to consolidate this knowledge so I'll set a couple of (possibly exam-style) questions for you to do before the next session. (optional)


Before the next session, I’ll mark any questions I set, and let you know what you did well, and how to improve. Above all, the sessions will have a relaxed tone, and we will work through the material at your own pace.
