I have over 6 years of experience in teaching Maths. I have tutored over 80 students and taught 4000+ hours of online lessons with various tuition agencies. Most of the students I have taught have been year 7 - 9, GCSE, A level and Further Maths A level students. I am familiar with the GCSE and A level syllabus for the following exam boards: Edexcel, AQA, OCR, OCR MEI and CIE. I have worked with students who are dyslexic or struggling with Maths and also high-achieving students.
I am a 1st Class BSc Honours maths graduate and have been a private maths tutor for 3+ years now. I have helped many students understand topics they could not get to grips with. I specialise up to GCSE maths and have helped numerous students overcome questions they did not feel they could answer. I have also helped retake students pass their re-sits.
I break difficult maths topics down to the basics and build the students’ confidence up. I am very good at spotting gaps in students’ knowledge and target on their weaker areas. I have the new (9-1) resources for all topics in the Edexcel exam board but these can be applied to other boards if needed.
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.
I have gathered extensive tutoring experience as a private Physics and Maths tutor in the Greater London area since 2014. I have tutored and prepared students from 11+ groups all the way to A levels, and have managed to specialise in the GCSE and A level curriculum. I am currently working for a VIP family in Dubai preparing their son for his A levels this year.
I have also gathered significant experience in the past while being a Mechanical Engineering Student at the Simón Bolívar University, in Venezuela, when I had the opportunity to tutor students in Maths as well as in Physics, as a preparation for their university entrance tests. I also helped younger promotions of students as well as fellow students of my own promotion at university, in order to gain a better preparation for evaluations in different engineering topics.
I have an excellent ability to communicate and connect with students of all Ages and I am able to mold my teaching so that everyone of my students internalises the topic. I am very passionate about teaching and I believe that with patience, the right focus on the details of the subject, as well as a general vision of it, and a dynamic comprehensive way of tutoring, you can tutor everyone till the extent of excellence. I am confident that my passion and experience are the qualities you are looking for.
I have seven years of tutoring experience with a strong track record of success in my pupils. I started teaching whilst at secondary school in Scotland and have since tutored Maths for Scottish Standard Grades and Highers as well as English GCSE and A Level. I have experience tutoring the AQA, Edexcel and OCR syllabi. I have a passion for making Maths fun and from experience I feel sure that by working through questions together we can build your confidence - so that you will enjoy Maths much more and achieve the result you deserve for all the hard work you put in.
Over my time at Cambridge I have tutored lower year Chemical Engineering students and peers and have never had a tutee achieve less than a 2:1.
Studying at Cambridge has given me four years of experience in the concentrated "Supervision" style of teaching used at Oxbridge. These lessons last for an hour and are taught by one academic to a maximum of three students. Four years of these kind of lessons allowed me to pick up the best teaching tricks from truly outstanding academics and teachers.
I feel that learning in this style from world-class academics has given me a lot of insight into how to coax the best from a student in order to encourage independent thinking and robust understanding. I achieved a first class MEng in Chemical Engineering from Cambridge.
I have a PhD in Engineering and a First Class MEng (Honours) in Ship Science from the University of Southampton. Since graduating I have gained over 5 years of experience in lecturing and tutoring engineering subjects, all of which required a strong background in maths and physics. I have always been keen to inspire students of all ages and abilities in STEM subjects and as such have a very varied tutoring background including undergraduate and postgraduate level at university, secondary school level during outreach workshops and lectures held both in schools and at university, and teaching industry professionals engineering at a university in Singapore.
I am experienced in teaching using a range of learning techniques including quizzes, demonstrations, example questions, and linking problems to real world situations, allowing me to tailor sessions to meet the requirements of the individual. If a student is struggling I am experienced in breaking down complex concepts into a number of simple steps in order to build the students knowledge and help them to progress. Above all I aim to make the subjects interesting and enjoyable to the students.
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.
The subjects that I primarily tutor are Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry. My 4 years of tutoring experience has found me tutoring students from year 8 to year 11 and providing valuable SAT preparation lessons.
I am fully aware of the GCSE/pre-GSCE subject matter and requirements. I have tutored numerous international students and their improvements stand testament to my ability to tutor various syllabuses. In addition, the 2 years of calculus, 2 years of chemistry and 1 year of physics that I completed at university, has adequately prepared me for all content appearing in different syllabuses.
Most of my client base is a result of referrals from other students, due to their improvements and belief within my tutoring capabilities. My tutoring ethos is built around a core of patience, passion and pride within my student's success. My experience has taught me valuable techniques for explaining difficult concepts in an easy to understand manner. I always recommend practicing the covered content after the lesson, and provide my own problems/questions if there aren't any available. I also provide lessons for overall test/exam preparation where I provide useful time saving tips among other things.
I am a qualified Maths teacher having PGCE and QTS as well as Bsc (Hons) in Mathematical Studies). I had been teaching/tutoring for nearly a decade with an excellent record. It can be a daunting experience for pupils who feel they are struggling to keep up with the ever increasing difficulty in the Maths curriculum as it goes through various changes. I am there to support them as a mentor, breaking down the various complicated aspects of Maths to make it easy for them to understand the subject more no matter what level they are at. It can also be a struggle if they have to deal with dyslexia, ADHD, dyscalculia and other issues.
I'm a primary maths specialist and have worked with children from ages 4-11 in booster and extension groups. I am experienced at teaching children with gaps in their understanding and a variety of SEN. I use a concrete, pictorial and then abstract approach to building mathematical understanding with a focus on reasoning and problem solving. I am particularly experienced at teaching the KS2 primary maths curriculum but also have experience teaching the KS1 curriculum and early years number and shape, space and measure. As a teacher, I know exactly how to enable my students to pass tests particularly their KS2 SATs, maths GCSEs and 11+ examinations. I was a year 6 teacher for two years and in both years all of my maths set reached the expected level with 30% of children in my sets achieving greater depth. I have also developed an in depth understanding of the reading, writing and SPAG assessments for KS1 and 2 and have prepared whole classes and small groups for these assessments. If you haven't found your academic passion yet, I will help you find it.
