In my undergraduate mathematics course I specialised in applied mathematics - studying topics such as quantum theory, quantum computing, special relativity, fluid/solid mechanics and biomathematics.
The research comprising my PhD is in the field of mathematics and mathematical modelling, specifically using mathematics to describe the distribution and interaction of drugs injected into the human eye to prevent blindness. Over the 4 years of my research I have published 3 papers in well respected academic journals.
My name is Laurence, I have a PhD in Mathematics from The University of Oxford, where I also attended for undergraduate, completing an MMath integrated masters degree in mathematics.
I have 5 years of tutoring experience and have tutored at several Oxford independent schools alongside privately tutoring many students. I cover secondary school Mathematics, teaching students from the 11 up to the age of 18, covering everything from year 7 Mathematics to Further Mathematics A-Level. I am most experienced in tutoring Mathematics/Further Mathematics A-Level, GCSE and IGCSE.
I additionally offer university entrance exam and preparation, covering the MAT/STEP exams required to study Mathematics at Oxford and Cambridge, respectively. I also offer interview preparation for prospective Oxford and Cambridge mathematics students.
In addition to Mathematics tutoring I also offer tutorials covering introductory and advanced MATLAB, having spent the last 4 years using the software to complete my research.
“Laurence is a great Maths tutor - he explains solutions in a very clear and concise way to make them easy to understand and sets a formula to help solve similar problems. We worked through questions until he was certain I 100% understood them and why the solution worked. I saw him leading up to my A levels and would not have done half as well as I did without his help!” Martha - A-Level Maths
“Laurence is a genial teacher who has transformed our 12 year old’s appreciation of Maths. By listening to what’s on his mind, then approaching the highest level work in a simple structured way, he’s made it a thrill not a chore - and top marks too. Very highly recommended.” Father of Thomas - Secondary school entrance exam preparation
“As someone who was self taught A-level maths I looked for a tutor and came across Laurence. Without him I wouldn’t have achieved the incredibly high marks I did in my A-levels let alone attend university to further study in Dentistry. He provided a basic understanding of complex concepts, as well as constant help no matter where I was in the world. He helped me gain confidence in my work and understanding, was very accommodating and friendly and I wouldn’t have achieved my academic position today without him. Thank You!” Beth - A-Level Maths
“Laurence was a brilliant tutor. He could explain everything I needed to know, and was really helpful. He really boosted my confidence in maths and I’d highly recommend him.” Lizzie - GCSE Maths
“Laurence is an excellent tutor. He helped my daughter gain confidence and in her words, 'helped me to understand the concepts behind mathematical principles.’ She benefited enormously from his accessible and supportive approach.” Mother of Lily - GCSE Maths
“Thank you for teaching me. I feel very good about our lessons. With your help, I can figure out most questions independently and I can get inspiration from lessons which improve my mathematical thinking.” Evelyn - A-Level Maths
Another brilliant lesson!
extremely helpful and very kind and considerate.
Laurence taught me new methods that made it easy for me to understand the concepts. I feel more confident in being able to solve similar problems in my Further Maths IGCSE paper.
Excellent tutor. Highly qualified in academia and teaching.
Very helpful and enjoyed it thanks
Excellent Lawrence was very helpful thank you
