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.

Mathematics job with David:
1-2 hrs/week - Hi Laurence
We need a tutor for our daughter doing IGCSE maths and further maths this year.
She has just completed her mock maths exam and scored a 7, and needs help to improve her grade to an 8 or possibly a 9. She also needs help toward her further maths exam in May/June this year. Our daughter is also looking to continue with maths as one of her A level subject next academic year.
Laurence's last review in Mathematics from David: Laurence taught me new methods that made it easy for me to understand the concepts. I feel more confident in being able to solve similar problems in my Further Maths IGCSE paper.
I’ve been working in universities and colleges for 15 years and have over 2 years experience of private teaching (1000+ hours). I’m an expert in linear algebra and elements of probability theory and have a range of experience teaching optimisation theory (including game theory), advanced calculus and complex analysis. I’ve delivered private lectures to A-level, IB maths students and undergraduates from prestigious UK universities. I teach students to learn the crucial concepts of maths more easily through concrete, clear examples. During my tutoring sessions I always reveal connections between different areas of mathematics, which appear highly non-obvious at first. This helps my students to obtain a deeper understanding of the curriculum. I always tailor sessions to the needs and requirements of my students and the main focus is on the practical application of the theorems.
Zoltan's last completed Mathematics job with Rehan: Occasional - I’m a second year maths student. I need help with a question from a past paper of my differential equations module.
Zoltan's last review in Mathematics from Rehan: Separation of variables to solve PDEs Very helpful and informative
Coming from a family of science teachers (Maths and Chemistry) it was my dream to become a Maths teacher since the age of thirteen.I have graduated with a bachelor degree of science from University of Manchester in 1997 and obtained my QTS in 1998. I have been teaching Maths for the last 22 years in schools and colleges and have a big experience on online teaching.
I love Maths and there is no greater pleasure to transfer this to my students. The way I teach a topic varies on each student. I have helped many students get their target grade and I will always aim for my students to get an A. All they need to do is study hard.
KONSTANTINA's last completed Mathematics job with Daghni: 1-2 hrs/week -
KONSTANTINA's last review in Mathematics from Kenji: Ms. Konstantina used the e-board to go over a past paper, explaining the way to solve it, and also how to understand what is actually being asked.
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.

Mathematics job with Philip:
1-2 hrs/week - Hi
We're looking for a Maths tutor for our son Bobby who will be starting his A-Level courses in September (hopefully). He is currently in year 11 (16 years old) in his CGSE year.
I understand he wants to take Maths and Further Maths at A-Level.
He is a student at Graveney School, London SW17 and I am searching to confirm which exam board they use - I should have that info soon.
We are flexible with times but it would be good to set up a regular weekly slot please. We are happy to start at any time soon.
Phil Wells (Dad)
Panagiotis's last review in Mathematics from Philip: Thanks Panos

Daniel's last completed Mathematics job with Will: Occasional - obtained 9 in maths, A* in further maths at GCSE wants tutor to help him to A* in maths and further maths A Level currently expected to get A in both, also would be beneficial if tutor could assist on Cambridge entrants exams.
Daniel's last review in Mathematics from priscilla: love this meeting, the best one ive ever had. I really learnt a lot. thank you
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.
Toby's last completed Mathematics job with Thomas: 1-2 hrs/week - Some things need refining in my maths and further maths. Looking for two A's, but struggling - need a bit of help. Want to start tuition asap.
Toby's last review in Mathematics from Molly: Tutor missed the class.
I estimate I have at least 6000 hours of experience, having been a tutor since 2011. I initially started teaching Maths and Physics to Engineering students at University and I gradually expanded into secondary school level tuition. I have worked full time as a tutor since 2012 and during that time I have taught Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Engineering.
I have taught A Levels, IGCSE/GCSE, IB, Pre-U, AP and I have covered nearly every exam board including Edexcel, OCR, AQA, WJEC. All of my students are seeking to get into top Univeristies.
What makes me a good tutor is my ability to break down a subject and cover it in a particular order so that a student who might not have a good understanding can understand how to progress through the topics. It doesn't hurt that I have a sense of humour and make my lessons actually fun and enjoyable.

Mathematics job with Jennifer:
Intensive - IB Math Start Immediately
My daughter will need intensive revision for an exam up until January 23rd in 10th Grade Advanced Level Math. Afterwards, we would like to fix weekly sessions twice or three times weekly, for the duration of the academic year. The last topic covered was “logarithms”.
Shahid's last review in Mathematics from Suzy: Introductory meeting I don’t usually like maths classes but this one was very enjoyable. Shahid was very patient and helped guide me through the questions so that I can get to the answers myself instead of telling me and I found this very useful. The recording of the lesson is not available though.
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 a postgraduate certificate in Teaching. I focus on teaching 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 certificates from MEI for teaching Further Maths across all syllabuses,
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.
