About me

Hi there, I’m Alex and I am a first year student at Oxford University (Magdalen College). I am approachable, fun, and friendly, as well as being extremely hard-working. Throughout my time at school I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of Maths, from participating in Maths challenges (achieving Gold certificates and going on to further rounds) to studying additional courses (teaching myself both Additional Mathematics at GCSE Level and then the first module of Further Mathematics at A-Level).

Hi there, I’m Alex and I am a first year student at Oxford University (Magdalen College). I am approachable, fun, and friendly, as well as being extremely hard-working. Throughout my time at school I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of Maths, from participating in Maths challenges (achieving Gold certificates and going on to further rounds) to studying additional courses (teaching myself both Additional Mathematics at GCSE Level and then the first module of Further Mathematics at A-Level). It is this passion for Maths that makes me keen to help others achieve their full potential at a subject that can be really interesting when you begin to understand it more fully! A prime example of this is the fact that I helped set-up and then run a ‘Maths Clinic’ (where we tutored younger students with either a great zeal for Maths, or those whom were struggling with material) at school. I coached several students over my final two years at school, one of whom was re-taking her GCSE Maths and required an A grade to gain a University offer – ultimately, she was able to accept her desired offer at Durham and she is currently studying there.

About my sessions

For the tutorials I shall design specific lesson plans and aims that align with the goals of any given student. In tailoring the lessons to the student I shall be able to offer an individual experience that best fits their needs. At the start of each lesson there will be a recap of material previously covered to assess whether this must be re-visited or not. Then I will begin to cover ground on a new topic through the use of explanations, diagrams and examples. The remainder of the lesson sha...

For the tutorials I shall design specific lesson plans and aims that align with the goals of any given student. In tailoring the lessons to the student I shall be able to offer an individual experience that best fits their needs. At the start of each lesson there will be a recap of material previously covered to assess whether this must be re-visited or not. Then I will begin to cover ground on a new topic through the use of explanations, diagrams and examples. The remainder of the lesson shall focus of this new material by setting the student questions and helping them work through the challenges. At the end of the session, work will be set so that the student may practice little and often in order to best learn the skills required. Whenever larger topics within the syllabus are completed a test shall be given and then marked as a means of assessing progress and working out whether the speed of the lessons should be adjusted or not.
