About me

I am an undergraduate studying Mathematics at Durham university of all places! I achieved an A* in both A level Maths and Further Maths, as well as at GCSE. I know this does not always make you the most equipped to pass on knowledge to other students, but I believe in my case in does. I have spent a great deal of my school and university time helping friends and other students in all aspects of Maths.

I am an undergraduate studying Mathematics at Durham university of all places! I achieved an A* in both A level Maths and Further Maths, as well as at GCSE. I know this does not always make you the most equipped to pass on knowledge to other students, but I believe in my case in does. I have spent a great deal of my school and university time helping friends and other students in all aspects of Maths. I enjoy the fact that everything isn’t immediately obvious, and some things may be very challenging for a long time, until eventually it becomes clear to you and you never look back from then on! But tutoring is not about me. It is about the student and how their potential can be maximised by utilising the tools I have from my vast experience as a student of Mathematics.

I will provide extensive knowledge in the best ways to be successful in Maths, as well as the extensive knowledge I have in common errors in maths and how to avoid making mistakes in Exam questions. I believe I have the tools to make even the most difficult topics as simple as possible, as I have crafted and developed my own techniques, from a great deal of time I have spent trying to make questions and topics as straightforward as possible for myself. I believe these methods will remove most of the difficulty from all questions that students find particularly challenging.

About my sessions

My main aim for the lessons is to give the students what they want from the limited time that we have in the sessions. Before every lesson, I will ask the student how they would like the lesson to be carried out. Whether they want me to provide exam questions, write my own exam-style questions, go over questions that they have prepared or explain a topic in full, I am equipped to do all of the above. I will also find questions or write my own questions after a set amount of lessons and we can...

My main aim for the lessons is to give the students what they want from the limited time that we have in the sessions. Before every lesson, I will ask the student how they would like the lesson to be carried out. Whether they want me to provide exam questions, write my own exam-style questions, go over questions that they have prepared or explain a topic in full, I am equipped to do all of the above. I will also find questions or write my own questions after a set amount of lessons and we can tackle these in exam-style conditions. We can then look over what mistakes were made and then try some similar questions, where these errors can then be eradicated. I believe this level of discipline will definitely be the recipe to success throughout the academic year. However, this will certainly not be pressured in any way, and will simply be an opportunity to see what has been fully understood over the previous lessons. One final point to mention is that I don't believe a tutor should just be a tutor just within the time of their lessons. I believe they should be readily available to help student outside of lesson time. This is why I have created a YouTube channel named 'Joshdoesmaths' so that students can send me questions that they are struggling with between lessons, and I can upload the solutions onto YouTube straight away!
