Federico's last completed
MAT job with Emily:
Intensive - I am really struggling to pick up my mat score
I have tried the step support programme and past papers
I just don't know what to do
Federico's last review in 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.
Oliver's last completed MAT job with Megan: 1-2 hrs/week - I am struggling with getting into the MAT questions and I intend to sit the exam at the end of this October. I've only been able to attempt the multiple choice questions on the 2014 paper and had to use hints and mark schemes so need quite a lot of help. I think the main issue is seeing what the question is asking and how to approach it.
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.
Jonny's last completed MAT job with Mark: Intensive - I want improve my ability with approaching the questions
Jonny's last review in MAT from Mark: Free trial. Jonny was really nice and I liked him a lot. Unfortunately, I don't think online tutoring works for me very well. I prefer real life where it is a bit easier to interact with my tutor on a single piece of paper.
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.
Virender's last completed MAT job with Megan: 1-2 hrs/week - I am struggling with getting into the MAT questions and I intend to sit the exam at the end of this October. I've only been able to attempt the multiple choice questions on the 2014 paper and had to use hints and mark schemes so need quite a lot of help. I think the main issue is seeing what the question is asking and how to approach it.
I've tutored students for the past five years, initially only GCSE and Key Stage 3 mathematics but later including A-Level (and IB) maths (and further maths), first year undergraduate maths (except for pure modules e.g group theory, real analysis, number theory), and also all sciences up to GCSE level. I've covered all exam boards extensively and am very familiar with the individual syllabuses. For the past two years, I have offered specialist tuition to those preparing for entrance exams and interviews for the top universities in the UK, and have had very high success rates getting students into the mathematics degrees at Oxford and Cambridge in particular.
I've consistently tutored for around ten hours per week over this period, and thus have amassed thousands of hours of experience. I've been buoyed by the positive feedback I've received from students and parents, and thus am always eager to take on new students - irrespective of ability level or educational goal.
