About me

Hi! I'm Josh and I am currently studying Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Warwick. I am about to begin my second year, having completed first year with an average of a first. Due to me studying a heavily mathematical degree, my knowledge is still fresh from what I learnt during my GCSE and A-Level courses.

Hi! I'm Josh and I am currently studying Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Warwick. I am about to begin my second year, having completed first year with an average of a first. Due to me studying a heavily mathematical degree, my knowledge is still fresh from what I learnt during my GCSE and A-Level courses.

The thing that I love most about mathematics is that there is always a correct answer: there is no room for ambiguity, which there sometimes is in other subjects. We can take an incredibly complex problem and simplify it or break it down into a number of easier problems, in order to make the original problem easier to solve.

Whilst at school, I completed my GCSE in Maths in Year 10, before completing a Further Mathematics GCSE, in which I achieved A* Distinction. As part of the university application process, I also completed all three of the STEP papers.

I have experience in tutoring, having worked with many younger students on a voluntary basis whilst at school. I think this experience will help me when tutoring you or your child, since it gave me ideas of how students learn in different ways.

About my sessions

I believe that every child learns differently, meaning that no two of my tutoring sessions will be the same. Before embarking on tutoring, I will discuss with the child what they believe their areas of weakness to be. I understand that some students will want to learn the specific content of a certain topic, whilst others will be interested in tackling exam-style questions on the topic. If suited to the student's needs, we’ll then go over some relatively straightforward problems on this t...

I believe that every child learns differently, meaning that no two of my tutoring sessions will be the same. Before embarking on tutoring, I will discuss with the child what they believe their areas of weakness to be. I understand that some students will want to learn the specific content of a certain topic, whilst others will be interested in tackling exam-style questions on the topic. If suited to the student's needs, we’ll then go over some relatively straightforward problems on this topic, so that they can understand the basics of the methods being applied. Then it will become more important to tackle more applied questions that will be like those that come up in the examinations. This should then give the student the confidence to tackle any question. It would be my aim that the student would be able to recall a step-by-step method for each type of question – something that would be useful at both GCSE and A-level.
