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 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
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!

Daniel's last completed MAT job with Rory: Intensive - Succeed at MAT mathematics in order to give myself the best chance to study maths at university
Daniel's last review in MAT from Rory: Free meeting Very clear and concise. Well paced.
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.

A tutor who primarily focuses on understanding the 'why' of problems and content rather than rote learning material.
During my undergraduate in Warwick I gained ample teaching experience, leading two groups of five first year students for over 80 hours in helping with assignments and consolidation of class material.
Since starting at Queen Mary I have gained further experience in delivering undergraduate material to large classes, delivering a variety of outreach lectures to secondary school students introducing them to basic topology and random graphs, as well as delivering a range one-to-one tuition sessions from GCSE to A Level up to early undergraduate for a total of more than 50 hours.
I also have experience teaching younger students (7-14) the basics of programming in Python as a CodeToday tutor, where I taught real programming in a very hands on problem solving style.
I have 7 years experience providing teaching and tuition in AS/A level Further Mathematics. I have over 10 years experience of providing revisions sessions and events for AS/A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics. I have over 6 years experience of lecturing undergraduate mathematics courses at all stages of a degree course. I have co-authored textbooks and revision guides for AS/A level Further Mathematics.
I have been a mathematics tutor at St Anne's College, Oxford. I love teaching and giving intuition to the mathematics, which makes it much easier and enjoyable to do mathematics. I believe that everyone can do well and enjoy mathematics.
