I am a student at the University of Sheffield, studying Mathematics. I admit to loving Maths, and I have a passion for helping my students exceed their goals, as well as inspiring students to gain a thorough understanding of the subject.


I am confident tutoring all A Level and GCSE Mathematics/Further Mathematics exam boards (including International). I have a lot of past experience tutoring A Level and GCSE students, as well as students preparing for the MAT and STEP Entrance Exams, and those crafting memorable Personal Statements.


In addition to my degree, I am a Scholar on the "Future Teaching Scholars" Programme, meaning I have recent and ongoing experience working with Y7-Y13 students at a local Grammar School, teaching and assiting teachers in Maths lessons. I have completed modules on "Effective Teaching Practice", "Preparing Lessons" and "National Curriculum Requirements in Mathematics", meaning I have a strong knowlegde of the current curriculum, and how to teach it well. Also, I have lots of experience working with Young People aged 11-18 by volunteering with a local Youth Group. I have a recent Enhanced DBS Certificate.

About my sessions

I am aware of many of the problems/misconceptions students have with various topics, and I easily anticipate and try to prevent them. This is the key to being an excellent tutor, along with giving clear explanations, making the subject relevant to life and keeping it engaging/exciting! I will challenge you to not only be able to do things, but to understand how things work. This will help your confidence in exams.

I am aware of many of the problems/misconceptions students have with various topics, and I easily anticipate and try to prevent them. This is the key to being an excellent tutor, along with giving clear explanations, making the subject relevant to life and keeping it engaging/exciting! I will challenge you to not only be able to do things, but to understand how things work. This will help your confidence in exams.


As your tutor, I will work in whatever way you want - you can decide how sessions will work. Some prefer to come armed with questions to look at, whereas others just have a topic in mind. In which case, I will teach the content with some worked examples, and we will then put it into practice using various real exam questions. We will quickly revise content in previous sessions to cement it in your long-term memory. This may help to draw connections between topics which you may not have noticed before! I spend a long time tailoring each session to my students. If you're not sure what to cover, I'll help you figure out any weak spots or find some interesting questions to challenge/deepen your understanding.


We can build a plan of action in our first lesson, which may be particularly helpful if you're preparing for an exam. I have a wealth of exam-style questions which can be used for revision, and I'll gladly mark and provide feedback on any work you do. (I will not complete/mark your assessed coursework)
