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.

Dr Steve's last completed
job with Oli:
1-2 hrs/week - I am currently struggling with the structuring of my TOK essay, and how I am meant to develop my arguments. I have completed a rough draft of my essay. I need to develop and improve my knowledge questions and am also looking on some guidance on how I should use knowledge questions to help develop my essay.
I chose the title "Too much of our knowledge revolves around ourselves, as if we are the most important thing in the universe", why might this be problematic?
Dr Steve's last review in IB from Oli: TOK essay Helpful in developing my idea for my TOK essay
My passion is to develop in students a commitment to their own life long learning and develop the associated skills to achieve their aspirations.
In tutoring, my goal is to support students to achieve to the best of their ability by helping them understand their role in learning, supporting them to develop the necessary subject specific skill competencies as well as content understanding.
Recent students have achieved over 80% in their university entrance exams with just a few sessions including some focus on exam preparation as well as content. Another student with a commitment to her own success achieved a 7 in IB Business Management with one on one teaching over only one year, where I coached her to develop and apply her learning to achieve her desired results.
In the initial free meeting, I will help students to identify and plan their learning goals, then coach them to achieve those goals in future lessons. I also seek to engage with parents from the beginning to ensure students have as many levels of support for their learning as possible.
David's last completed IB job with Annabelle : 1-2 hrs/week - I am studying IB HL Economics online through distance education, with Pamoja Education. I am looking for some personal assistance to clarify the concepts and review my assessments, on an ongoing basis (1-2 times a week). I am struggling to understand the content due to the lack of interaction. Not all of the material is covered in our zoom classes, so I may need to be taught some concepts.
David's last review in IB from Annabelle : Review of micro revision and progress with ToF Reviewed the progress on my Internal Assessment and went through the best way to approach it. Also went through some content from the current topic, which furthered my understanding. Thank you!
I have got over 200 hours of tutoring experience, teaching mostly the IB Diploma and MYP Curriculum, also online. I also got experience in preparing students for SATs and University Mathematics Exams. (Maths for Business, Economics and Finance)
I am comfortable with using new technology to facilitate learning. (Graphics Calculators: TI Nspire, TI-84, Autograph, Skype, Zoom, Microsoft Sharepoint, Bitpaper.)
In my most recent job, apart from the scheduled lessons, I have supported my students in one to one support sessions and I am very proud that many of them achieved 6 or 7 in their Mathematics Higher and Standard Level exams and got admitted to prestigious universities. (Oxford, Imperial, Kings College, QMC, LSE)
My many years of teaching experience enables me to assess student knowledge and learning style quickly and address it with appropriate methods.
