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.
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'm a postgraduate teaching assistant and [email protected] tutor, as well as an online tutor. I love maths and enjoy encouraging students to discover its beauty and usefulness, and I am very skilled at presenting maths on a level matching the knowledge of my students.
I have been teaching Economics, Statistics and Econometrics since I was in college. After leaving college, I became a full-time professional tutor. I have worked with students who were complete beginners, as well as those who were facing challenges in mastering advanced topics.
I completely understand the initial struggle in decoding the concepts and formulas. I am adept in breaking down these concepts so that students can understand them. I use simple examples so that students can make sense of these topics. I don't encourage memorization and simply recalling the formulas, instead, I focus on the 'why' and 'how'.
I understand that every student has a different way of understanding things. Some students understand the concepts when explained through analogies, others when shown mathematical foundation behind them. I modify my teaching methodology depending on what the student is comfortable with.
I have successfully taught all subjects I am offering up to and including A Level. Experienced with AQA, OCR, Edexcel, and Eduqas. As a senior leader I have coached and mentored new and experienced teachers giving me a deep understanding of teaching methodologies. Skilled in differentiating learning, my student-centred approach ensures all students make progress. I am dedicated to developing the passion for lifelong learning in others.
I have 8 years of on-ground teaching experience. Since last two years, I have teaching Economics, Statistics and Econometrics online.
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.
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.
6 Solid years helping students from all ages, countries and ability to gain a better understanding of mathematics and statistics.
Key areas that I like to focus on his:
Keeping a steady pace, based on the learner
Allowing for exploration of the student to come to a solution on their own. I can chime in when needed, but I will guide you.
With training and experience in a proven method of successful communication, Motivational Interviewing, I am here to reflect and guide what you need.
Calculus, Probability, Statistics, Trigonometry, Geometry, Vectors, Distributions, Differential Equations, Graph theory, I could go on. Some times it is the student who upon explaining the problem, are they able to reach a conclusion.
