About me

Outside of tutoring and teaching, my current interests are in the use and abuse of statistics in Big Data and Machine Learning. I follow sport, especially international cricket, enjoy pottering in my garden weather permitting and going for walks in the forest.

Tutor Experience

I believe that a good tutor combines teaching and mentoring in a way that encourages students to use their own thinking and ability, set their own ‘agenda’, ask questions and then works with them to improve their self- confidence and ability in the subject.

I have degrees in Mathematics, Statistics and a postgraduate certificate in Teaching. I focus on teaching Mathematics and Statistics at Advanced, Foundation and University levels to a variety of students.

I teach A-level Maths and Statistics at school and also tutor students studying for AS, A2, IB exams under various boards (OCR, OCR/MEI, Edexcel, AQA, MAT/STEP, GRE). Topics covered with students:

Core Maths (Y1/AS & Y2 A-level) - covering Pure & Applied (Statistics & Mechanics)
Further Maths . I have certificates from MEI for teaching Further Maths across all syllabuses
Further Statistics
Further Mechanics
Statistics A-level (Edexcel, AQA)

I have taught courses in Maths and Statistics at University level. I have tutored University level students on topics covering:
Probability and Statistics,
Statistical Inference / Mathematical Statistics Theory covering classical statistics (point estimation, interval estimation, hypothesis testing, Bayesian inference, decision theory)
Stochastics Processes/Models
Time Series Analysis
Regression Analysis - Simple, multiple, Logistic(Binomial), Log (Poisson) models
Linear Statistical Models , Generalised Linear Models
Quantitative methods for Economics & Business students
Medical Statistics
Monte Carlo Simulation
Statistical Learning and Data Science

Testimonials

Virender was extremely helpful and patient with me, particularly on some difficult material that I encountered in my statistics course, and seemed to come to an understandable explanation no matter what I threw at him! I would not hesitate to request further lessons from Virender in the future. Thank you again. Best wishes, Sean Sean (OU Mathematical Statistics student)

Virender (Bobby) Verma is an exquisitely competent teacher who never fails to explain a concept or question. He has been instrumental in aiding me to understand key topics that I had difficulties wrapping my head around. He has been able to do the same with exercises which I would get stuck on, effortlessly going through them whilst explaining each step of his working. Thanks to Bob, I have improved my performance by two grades, going from a C to an A. Overall, I would highly recommend you choose Virender (Bobby) Verma to be your next maths tutor. George - A-level Maths student

Virender (Bobby) Verma was an unbelievable help in developing my exam technique and gave me a huge boost in confidence. I found covering more complex questions with him really useful as we quickly identified any weak spots in my approach, and this made me become quicker and more efficient with my problem solving. His tutoring helped me to decide the best approach to a problem before answering it. Overall I’m very thankful for having Bobby as my tutor and I recommend him to anyone taking the Further Maths course. I achieved A* grades in my Maths and Further Maths, gaining a place to study Mathematics at Warwick University, UK. Freddie (A-level Further Maths student)
