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 Admissions MAT job with Steven: 1-2 hrs/week - I’m Steven from Scotland and needs help with MAT.
I have taught first year undergraduates in Imperial College focusing on improving problem solving skills. I have been employed by the university to teach in summer courses preparing pupils for the MAT. I have also taught privately covering the syllabi of A-levels and IB.
Federico's last completed Admissions MAT job with Mia: 1-2 hrs/week - Hi Federico. I am currently working towards my application for Computer Science and I am looking for some help with MAT and A level maths/further maths. I had a particularly bad last set of exams so I just want to make sure I am able to recover from this. I feel my problem lies less in the maths concepts themselves but more in being able to get "unstuck" from difficult problems when my other attempts to solve it have failed, and doing problems under timed/pressured situations. Having said this, there are also some areas of mathematics from the A level that I would like to consolidate. As a result, I would like someone to help me go through particularly difficult problems (both hard a level problems and MAT q's) and develop techniques in doing problems efficiently, knowing what to apply where and finding familiarity in different situations. I have another internal exam on August 28th, thus I am looking to have lessons a few times a week in August and then less frequently leading up to the MAT exam. I hope this can work, thanks and best wishes - Mia
Federico's last review in Admissions MAT from Steven: 2016 MAT This is my last lesson with Federico before the real MAT exam and I know I’ll be missing him after I’ve finished the MAT. Federico is the best maths teacher ever and one of the best MAT tutor available online. He is really patient when teaching lessons and when I didn’t understand a concept, he was always patient enough to explain it again until I get it completely, and as a result of it, all of my lessons wth him were extended but with no additional cost. When he is teaching a concept, such as the binomial probability and transformation of points by applying matrices, he was always able to find real life examples, which makes learning really interesting and makes maths fun. Federico always encourages me to ask questions, but sometimes I was too shy to ask. Federico was able to notice it every time since I sounded confused, and he would give me a more thorough explanation to make sure I understand everything. Sometimes, he asks me to explain things in my own words to him again after he have done the explanation just to make sure that I’m not pretending. As a result, I learned a lot from each lessons. After the lessons were finished, I were given problems to complete. A lot of times, I could only do one or two of the questions, but he was always very supportive and helpful. He marked my answers with no additional charge and were able to recognize that my attempts were really good though I couldn’t arrive at the final solution, and he were always able to give me informative hints and feedback quickly. He was also extremely nice; when I got rejected by unis, he gave me lots of encouragement and when I got accepted, he congratulated me. I wasn’t able to find a test centre nearer the time of the deadline, and he helped me to make phone calls to several test centers for which I really appreciate. I really couldn’t thank him enough for all of his help!
I have tutored A-level, Undergraduate and Masters Physics and Maths for three years for pupils aiming for levels from C-A* (and 1st Class Honours), as well as Oxbridge entrance exams and interview practice.
Academically, I graduated top in my year from Cambridge with a Masters' in Astrophysics, and am now undertaking a PhD in Princeton, following a one-year research placement at Harvard.
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.
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 Teaching, and have taught 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 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.

I focus on holistic, personalised learning experiences. I realise that everyone absorbs learning differently. For this reason, I’ve created a suite of right-fit learning solutions that cover every angle of personal, technical and professional development in a way that works for each student. My idea of tutoring is not just about maths and physics; it’s about growing and developing individuals into self-confident and creative problem solvers. I work tirelessly to enable my students to achieve their education and career goals. I am fanatical about creating new experiences and challenges for my students to keep them engaged and passionate about their maths and physics experience.
I specialise in IGCSE, IB, A-level, Higher, Advanced Higher, NAT5, SAT 2, GMAT, MAT and University exams preparation.
Apart from many years of maths and physics teaching at different high schools, I am a university lecturer with over 10 years of work experience. Now, I work at North East Scotland College lecturing maths and physics statistics. My professional experience spans over broad spectrum of academic needs from tutoring friends and family for their high school and entrance exams to advising and supervising BSc, MA's, MSc and PhD students at the university (subjects include advanced calculus including variational, linear algebra, data analysis & statistics, mathematical methods of physics, quantum mechanics and quantum fields theory). Over last 30 years, I have built private tutoring portfolio helping students of various levels and backgrounds ranging from primary schools to colleges (including Eaton, Wycombe Abbey, Fettes, Stewart's Melville and St George’s School Edinburgh) and universities. I am offering you professional, extensive and up-to-date knowledge of science mastered to the expert level during my own scientific research, and experience of working with students gained at different educational establishments of effective tutoring of students on all academic levels.
