About me

Hi! I'm Ruby and I'm currently studying maths at Oxford. While there are so many interesting aspects of my subject, I love the general problem-solving techniques it provides you with - a lot of our lives revolve around using the information we already have to draw new conclusions and find other pieces of useful information, which is exactly what maths is.

Hi! I'm Ruby and I'm currently studying maths at Oxford. While there are so many interesting aspects of my subject, I love the general problem-solving techniques it provides you with - a lot of our lives revolve around using the information we already have to draw new conclusions and find other pieces of useful information, which is exactly what maths is. This idea is what forms the backbone of my lessons. I believe that in order to have a good knowledge of maths, you need a good foundation, which is why I aim to structure my lessons so that knowledge is retained, rather than forgotten about when left unused for a few weeks. Aside from maths, I really enjoy reading, rock climbing and dog walking!

About my sessions

My general lesson structure is to spend around a third of the time covering the general theory/content, with the remaining two-thirds spent practising exam/textbook questions - practise is invaluable when it comes to maths! Prior to the lessons, I will talk with the student about the topics that they would like to cover and will select relevant questions from online resources. Depending on student preference, students can also send me any specific questions that they have prior to the lesson,...

My general lesson structure is to spend around a third of the time covering the general theory/content, with the remaining two-thirds spent practising exam/textbook questions - practise is invaluable when it comes to maths! Prior to the lessons, I will talk with the student about the topics that they would like to cover and will select relevant questions from online resources. Depending on student preference, students can also send me any specific questions that they have prior to the lesson, which I will then prepare solutions for us to work through in the lesson, in addition to any questions that they may ask during the lesson. At the end of each session, I spend a few minutes chatting with the student about their progress during the lesson and discuss topics that we will cover in future lessons. Every few lessons, I'll direct the student to some optional exam questions that I can mark, which can be used for both of us to see how they are progressing.
