About me

I am a second year student at Durham University studying for an integrated Master’s in Mathematics and Physics. I have two years of experience tutoring GCSEs, IGCSEs and A levels. I have taught Further Mathematics, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics at these levels and have experience tutoring the new GCSE specifications. I also have access to 90 new specification GCSE maths papers to add to the limited number of freely available new specification papers.

I am a second year student at Durham University studying for an integrated Master’s in Mathematics and Physics. I have two years of experience tutoring GCSEs, IGCSEs and A levels. I have taught Further Mathematics, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics at these levels and have experience tutoring the new GCSE specifications. I also have access to 90 new specification GCSE maths papers to add to the limited number of freely available new specification papers.


I have five A levels with Further Mathematics, Mathematics and Biology being at grade A* and Chemistry and Physics being at grade A.

I have an A* with distinction in IGCSE Further Mathematics, and in GCSE Mathematics, Science, Additional Science and Further Additional Science I achieved a grade A*.


As an experienced tutor I have practice explaining things in multiple ways and can teach several different methods for solving problems. This allows for easier, more efficient and more effective methods to be incorporated into the student’s repertoire, allowing them to tackle problems they may otherwise struggle with. I can also offer advice on examination techniques and help focus revision on the topics that are the most likely to come up.

About my sessions

Lessons will be taught differently for each student, subject and topic. Each student has a unique learning style and therefore lessons need to be tailored to maximise the effectiveness of the tutoring.

Lessons will be taught differently for each student, subject and topic. Each student has a unique learning style and therefore lessons need to be tailored to maximise the effectiveness of the tutoring. My lessons will not be simply memorising facts but instead will consist largely of building understanding and learning how to apply the knowledge gained. The ability of students to apply their knowledge to unfamiliar and more complicated situations is often required in exams and this is therefore a focal point of many of my lessons. Lessons may be focused on covering content or on doing questions to consolidate knowledge and students will be tested on a regular basis to evaluate their progress. This will most commonly be done through past papers and short quizzes.

Revision resources and homework can be made available for regular students.

I am definitely starting to feel more confident about my maths ability. I didn't realise 2 hours of maths could go so quickly!
