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.
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, CIE, Edexcel, AQA, MAT/STEP, GRE). Topics covered have been in Core Maths, Further Maths and Statistics. I have certificates from MEI for teaching Further Maths across all syllabuses,
I have taught courses in Maths and Statistics at Universities. Also I have tutored University level students on topics covering Probability and Statistics, Linear Algebra, Complex Analysis, Numerical Analysis, Fluid Dynamics, Quantitative Methods in Business, Actuarial Maths, Financial mathematics.
Statistical Inference; Statistical Linear Models; Regression Analysis; Statistical Learning; Experimental Design; Data Analysis using statistical software (R/RStudio , Excel)
Very helpful, got me thinking a bit more about the underlying reasons for doing the mathematical manipulations.
Difficult material today, but we got there in the end! Very helpful again talking it through.
Was able to tackle some difficult material. Very helpful.
Really helpful, as the lesson helped my understanding of some core material.
Excellent class, looking forward to the next one.
Lesson was very helpful
I enjoyed the class and found it useful.
Very helpful. Making progress with R gradually.
Bob explained (and patiently) the basics of Rcommander. Very helpful thankyou.
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)
