About me

When I was in school, I always loved maths, this was partly due to me being lucky enough to have passionate teachers that wanted to pass that passion onto their students.

I believe that maths isn't taught well overall in the UK, that it should be driven by curiosity rather than mindlessly repeating questions.

After loving maths in school, I went on to study pure maths at the University of Edinburgh, where I achieved a first class degree with honours. During this time at univer...

When I was in school, I always loved maths, this was partly due to me being lucky enough to have passionate teachers that wanted to pass that passion onto their students.

I believe that maths isn't taught well overall in the UK, that it should be driven by curiosity rather than mindlessly repeating questions.

After loving maths in school, I went on to study pure maths at the University of Edinburgh, where I achieved a first class degree with honours. During this time at university, I tutored many students one-on-one and also taught in classrooms around the city. Now that I've graduated, I was missing teaching maths and immediately began tutoring again.

Outside of tuition, I work in finance and compete in some UK sports leagues.

About my sessions

To structure a lesson, I begin by asking the student if they have a preferred lesson type, if they would want a tutorial on any subject, practice questions with details on each step, or if they would want to just jump in and begin at the start of the course and do a blend of questions and tutorial, with a focus on any areas they're confused by.

To structure a lesson, I begin by asking the student if they have a preferred lesson type, if they would want a tutorial on any subject, practice questions with details on each step, or if they would want to just jump in and begin at the start of the course and do a blend of questions and tutorial, with a focus on any areas they're confused by.

To help students achieve their goals, I study past papers from their subject and look at exactly the types of questions asked, which ones are asked regularly, and ensure the student will be able to work out any question they are given. To do this, I work subject-by-subject through the course, delivering questions on each subject. For example, if we were to study logarithms in one lesson, I would end the lesson by working through all the past paper questions on logarithms with the student (there is one in every higher question paper).
