I have been teaching Economics, Statistics and Econometrics since I was in college. After leaving college, I became a full-time professional tutor. I have worked with students who were complete beginners, as well as those who were facing challenges in mastering advanced topics.
I completely understand the initial struggle in decoding the concepts and formulas. I am adept in breaking down these concepts so that students can understand them. I use simple examples so that students can make sense of these topics. I don't encourage memorization and simply recalling the formulas, instead, I focus on the 'why' and 'how'.
I understand that every student has a different way of understanding things. Some students understand the concepts when explained through analogies, others when shown mathematical foundation behind them. I modify my teaching methodology depending on what the student is comfortable with.
During 2018, Marco has been academic lecturer at the University of Pavia, Italy, teaching the course Quantitative Finance with R, which is a special section of the MSc in Finance course Quantitative Finance. Moreover, during the previous academic year, he was tutor and teaching assistant for the course Econometrics (3rd year BSc in Economics) at the University of Genova, Italy.
Marco has also a relevant tutor experience. He taught both in person and online to a variety of student at BSc and MSc level. He is specialised in quantitative subjects such as Econometrics and programming.
Holding a BSc and two MSc, Marco definitely gained expertise in structuring dissertations in Statistics, Econometrics and Financial Econometrics (subjects of his three dissertations). In addition, doing research on a daily basis for his PhD strengthened his taste for original works and for literature review building.
I cover all levels of Mathematics from primary school all the way to SATs, GMAT and degree level . I focus particularly on A level and GCSE teaching all relevant modules including Stats, Core and Mechanics. I have a proven track record coaching students for AQA, Edexcel and OCR exam boards. I am always patient and encouraging and know how to get the best out my students. I enjoy making tricky concepts easy to understand by using everyday examples. There is no substitute for practice and I will set numerous problems to be completed before the next lesson. This is the only way to be sure topics are sinking in. I always emphasise full understanding of problems not just simply learning methods.
I provide intensive exam preparation and my pupils have frequently achieved top grades. My students are normally referred to me from other satisfied pupils and I tend to get very busy. However I am taking on new students at the moment and do have some availability.
My earliest stint with teaching dates back more than a decade when I helped my mother take private tuition at home. Fast forward to 2017 when I was conducting workshops in my MBA school to help students prepare for their semester exams (in subjects such as Financial Markets, Corporate Finance, etc.). In order for me to be able to explain the subject matter, I need not just be well read. I need to be well spoken as well. I am a voracious reader and a passionate public speaker and have represented my school and college at the national level in different competitions. Brewing my interest in the incessant world of finance, I cleared my CFA Level 1 and 2 and FRM Level 1 exams in the very first attempt and am currently awaiting my FRM charter and preparing for my CFA Level 3 exams simultaneously. I have been a subject matter expert reviewer (Finance) for Study.com wherein I reviewed 2500 questions in a span of 6 months (of which 2499 reviews were correct). Of late, I have been a finance tutor on Chegg USA and have completed 200 odd lessons with a 100% success rate.
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.
Statistics. Econometrics. STATA. Macro/Microeconomics.
I have been tutoring for more than 10 years, across a range of skill levels from GCSE to degree level. I come from a family of teachers and tutored students from the age of 16.
I have a lot of patience and ensure that the student understands the concept thoroughly before moving further. I follow a Socratic and Engagement method of teaching.
My greatest skill is in teaching the student any concept in the most logical and the most easily understandable way.
My last 3 yrs of tutoring has been focussed heavily on the IB and IGCSE and the Indian ISC grades.
I also provide IA help.
Achievements include :
a) Helping a student from India secure all India rank 47 in the IMO.
b) Helping many students in the US with their AP courses(AP Calc AB, BC and AP Stat)
c) Helping many students clear the SAT math subject test with a score of above 780.
d) Helping 2 super-achiever students in the US with advanced geometry lessons dealing with AMC, Mathcounts and Kumon worksheets.
e) Helping a student in Dubai secure an admit into the prestigious Dubai College.
f) Helping a student secure a 97% on his Multivariable calc college math exam in one of the semesters.
g) Helping many students in the middle east and India with their CBSE, ICSE math courses.
h) Successfully coaching many people from Europe, the middle east and India and helping them secure A* in their igcse exams.
i) Successfully helping a student in Germany secure a 65% in his IB Diploma Options Calculus paper which was a huge improvement in his grade.
j) Helped a student crack a Nation-wide newspaper sponsored exam. She received a cash prize and an all expenses paid trip to Kellogg University.
k) Helped 2 students secure a perfect 7 on their IB.
l) Helped an average performer secure a 6 in his IB DP final.
m) Helped an academically weak student secure a 5 in his IB DP final.
I have tutored up to and including the Masters level. I have never failed to guide a student to their target grade. I have always begun with an assessment of the tutees level of understanding with regard to a specific subject matter and then crafted lesson plans to strengthen their fundamentals before progressing onto more complex subject matter.
I have found this to be the most effective method, having used it in the past to take a student without mathematics beyond GCSE to Achieve a merit on an MSc level "Statistics & quantitative Techniques" exam. I also like to tailor the experience to be compatible with the most effective learning style for each particular student. I have used more visual means for those with attention difficulties to ensure constant engagement with the subject material.
Over the past 15 years, I have been helping students with their studies in Economics, Finance, Statistics, and other Business-related subjects, primarily at the university level. Moreover, I have had extensive experience in thesis writing and assignment supervision, research guidance as well as academic writing. During this time, my zeal, in-depth knowledge and overall tutoring skills have enabled me to develop a good reputation, thus having a consistent and loyal base of students on a weekly basis.
