***I AM CURRENTLY NOT TAKING ON NEW STUDENTS***
***I'm afraid there is no way I can make exceptions to this***
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's last completed A Level Further Mathematics job with Nick: 1-2 hrs/week - My son is a Year 13 A-Level student in Music, Maths and Further Maths. He has offers from his preferred Universities to study Music and Maths Joint Honours, however he needs some support in Further Maths, particularly Mechanics and Vectors.
Laurence's last review in A Level Further Mathematics from Thomas: Another great lesson!
I am a very experienced online maths tutor who has worked with many A level and GCSE students to improve their grades. Recently I have supported many students during lockdown and helped to minimise the disruption to their education by covering missed content and revising work they had done earlier in the year. As we work through another year of uncertainty I can provide the extra boost you need to understand and learn maths by identifying gaps in your knowledge and working to fill them in.
I teach A-level maths and further maths, GCSE, iGCSE, OCR FSMQ, the QTS Numeracy test and the TMUA.
I have been a professional tutor for over 30 years and have taught online for 8 years. I have helped to improve the results and confidence of many different types of students. Often I have been asked to tutor younger siblings and get new students via recommendations.
For the further maths A level I can assist with CP1, CP2, FM1, FM2 and FP1.

Lindsay's last review in A Level Further Mathematics from Natalie: The 2nd chapter of core pure year 2 - Maclaurin series and series expansions of compound functions. Very helpful, clear explanations of questions and laid out solutions in a very organised way that made it easy to spot any mistakes I had made.
I have vast experience of teaching mathematics and further mathematics to A Level, having taught in three different sixth form colleges for a total of 25 years. I thrive when working on maths with learners; it's a subject I love, and the question of how best to communicate it is one that fascinates me. I'm well-qualified; my first degree at Cambridge University (where I won a scholarship) was in Mathematics and Education, and I have an MSc in Mathematical Research from the University of East Anglia. I also have a Cert. Ed. from Cambridge University and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Professional Studies in Education from the Open University. I'm a keen member of the Association of Teachers of Mathematics, and I'm constantly trying to improve my teaching in discussion with others.

Nigel's last review in A Level Further Mathematics from Ruqaiyah: Good lesson
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.

Virender's last review in A Level Further Mathematics from Zara: Further Maths - Zara to advise Thank you! Very useful and helped me understand very clearly
Private tutoring (2015 - ?)
- I have taught more than 40 students on various levels of Maths from secondary to undergraduate level.
- I have designed tests, mock interviews to help students prepare for standard exams such as A Levels (any exam board), AP, IB (SL, HL), GRE (Quant), SAT, and SSAT.
Teaching assistantship at Imperial College London (2017 - 2019)
- I taught a group of year 1 undergraduates on a weekly basis to help them transition from maths in school to more rigorous maths in university.
- I helped run a summer school aimed at preparing students for MAT and STEP tests (admission tests to Oxbridge and Russel group universities)
Teaching assistantship at Stony Brook University (2019 - ?)
- I am currently teaching or have taught undergraduate courses such as Fourier analysis and differential equations & dynamics
- I help run the Math Learning Centre in which students can drop in anytime to ask tutors any maths questions
- I grade coursework and give review classes for some undergraduate courses
Willie Rush's last completed A Level Further Mathematics job with Ishika: 1-2 hrs/week - I am currently in year 12 and am doing the OCR exam board for Further Maths. I will be taking the Core Pure, Discrete, and Advance Pure papers and would need a tutor who can confidently go through random questions on these topics and help explain parts of these topics that I don't understand as well as give me tips on how to pick up more marks in exams. It would also be very helpful if they could assist me in the same ways with Maths A level (also with the OCR board).
I have been working as a maths tutor since 2011 and online exclusively since 2015, with over 6000 hours of experience. During this period, I have successfully assisted students studying for their GCSE and IB/A-levels all the way up to university modules and exams. This has taken place both privately and while holding external tutoring roles in various London schools. In the online realm, I have worked with students from all over the world, those studying for UK specifications as well as undergraduates in English speaking universities or wishing to attend UK universities. For instance, I've had students, among others, from Germany, Netherlands, Spain, France, China, USA.
Areas usually covered for undergraduates include analysis and calculus, analytic and differential geometry, financial maths, linear algebra, statistics and probability.
Regarding my tutoring method, I strive to create а well balanced relationship with pupils. I set clear targets for my students and expect them to develop throughout our sessions. Additionally, I emphasize оn the suitable аpprоаch fоr eаch individuаl in оrder tо hаve the best results pоssible. I further cоnsider humоur аn essentiаl pаrt оf my sessiоns аs it creаtes а better leаrning envirоnment, eliminates inhibitions, and promotes а more enjoyable session.
Lastly, in my lessons, I put a lot of emphasis on the background knowledge of every topic and method - dry memorising is of no use. This has proved valuable for students in tackling the challenging and 'unseen' questions in the exams. What is more, exams aside, analytic skills accompany students throughout their studies in various areas.

Further Mathematics job with Kaushik:
1-2 hrs/week - Hello
I have a 16 year old son, Ishan Mitra, who goes to Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School (Birmingham) and is currently in year 11.
He is performing well in school and is within the top 5-10 in the whole year. His GCSE exams were cancelled this year. I attach his GCSE mock results from the school where he attained 80 points from all ten subjects (66 points from his top eight including Grade 9 in Mathematics).
I was wondering if you maybe available to offer him tuition services in Further Maths. He would like to strengthen his understanding of Further Maths for A levels and maybe pursue a career in Maths in university.
I look forward to hearing from you.

I have tutored many students from Primary School level through to Cambridge undergraduates - including preparation for GCSEs, A Levels, STEP, UKMT Maths Challenges and private school entrance exams. My experience with a wide range of ages and abilities (as well as other challenges such as a blind GCSE maths student), have given me a well rounded ability to approach problems from the correct direction for the student, as well as the depth of understanding to adapt to a student's preferred methods.
Many of my tutees have gone on to be very successful in their Mathematics, including 100% scores in UKMT Maths Challenges, and scholarships to high profile schools.
