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 4 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.
Laurence's last completed Mathematics job with Natalia: 1-2 hrs/week - My daughter Manuela is preparing her IGCSE exams and she is struggling with Maths and Sciences. She will be available as from November 19.
Laurence's last review in Mathematics from Jake Calvert: Come prepared with questions and topics from the book or papers to discuss. Looking forward to seeing you again! fanbrillaint
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 20 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 sean: Intensive - I am struggling on OCR a2 level math, I finished the course but I forgotten much from the beginning. Need help plz:(
KONSTANTINA's last review in Mathematics from Nusrat: past papers Konstantina is best Mathematics teacher a student can. She tutored my daughter in A Levels and she got A and now she is tutoring my son for his IGcse and its helping him a lot . I highly recommend her .
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.
Shahid's last completed Mathematics job with Grace: Over 2 hrs/week - My Epp is coming up soon, it will be on all chapters from the first book on Pure Maths and all chapters on statistics&mechanics(first book). I need intensive revision to get through everything as quickly as possible. As it’s the new silibus I will take out questions from both books to go through and I have an exam paper to go through at the end
Shahid's last review in Mathematics from Emilia: Maths it was really good 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’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 Hila: Occasional - Im second year in Bachlers in Mathematics. Unfortunately i have missed abut 10 days of classes and have fallen behind- main subject of difficulty for me right now is differential equations. We're doing proofs of existence and uniqueness of solutions for the initial value problem at the moment and i need some help with the homework..
Zoltan's last review in Mathematics from Rhiannon: Vectors Very good lesson with Zoltan on Vectors, drawings shown clearly as well as explanations
I have worked for Spires for 5 years, and have considerable experience teaching young adults. I have coached rugby and tutored informally for nearly 10 years, and when I joined Oxford University in 2014 I began to tutor professionally.
I stand out as an A Level tutor due to my experience at identifying how young adults think and learn - especially when they are confused or distressed - and tailoring my tutoring accordingly. My aim is to instill calmness and build confidence, by getting to know my students and identifying their underlying issues. This allows me to help them develop a deep-rooted and permanent understanding, at top speed.
When it comes to maths and science, miscommunication is often the biggest problem! Not everyone clicks perfectly with their teacher. This is where I would love to help.
Samuel's last completed Mathematics job with George: 1-2 hrs/week - I am an Alevel student studying maths and AS further maths, and would also like to take the TMUA for my Durham University application. I would like support to achieve an A* in alevel maths and AS further maths and a good grade in the TMUA. I would like to start as soon as possible. The TMUA will be taken on the 31st of October and my alevels will take place in May. Thank you. George Lawn
Samuel's last review in Mathematics from Jacob: Mechanics Cont. Good class- continued to work on mechanics and was very clear and concise
I am a volunteer for a number of organisations which aim to help disadvantaged students reach university and have tutored a number of students to success in their exams so I have a lot of experience of working with young people and helping them to reach their potential. I am happy to help as a subject specific tutor for GCSE or A-Level, or help students through the sometimes daunting university application process and admissions tests.
About my tutorials:
Sessions are always student-led. I plan tutorials which reflect the student's level of understanding, giving access to notes, including suggested exam questions, which the student can add to during the tutorial, or use as a memory-aid following the tutorial.
I have received lots of positive feedback about this approach.
I can also help students through questions or tasks which they bring, and the best tutorials involve this collaborative input.
The pace of sessions is determined by the student, and I am happy to go through any topic with a number of different approaches until we find one which the student finds helpful.
Chloe's last completed Mathematics job with Divya: Intensive - I am struggling with all the modules (Pure Mathematics, Statistics and Mechanics) in the new AS and A Level maths syllabus from 2017 due to poor quality of teaching in my school. I’ve been failing so badly this year and I need a lot of support. I need to at least get A in Maths to get into the course I want to study at university next year (Actuarial Science).
Chloe's last review in Mathematics from Fiona: Just let me know at some point this week :) Technical issues, but a great class.
I teach A-level maths and further maths, GCSE, iGCSE, OCR FSMQ, the QTS Numeracy test and STEP Assignments.
I have been a professional tutor for over 30 years and have taught online for 7 years. I have helped to improve the results and confidence of many different types of students. Often I have been asked to tutor younger siblings and get new students via recommendations.
For the further maths A level I can assist with CP1, CP2, FM1 and FP1.
Lindsay's last completed
Mathematics job with Duncan:
1-2 hrs/week - I take the Edexcel exam board.
I would like some guidance on the following topics:
1. Integration (By parts and substitution)
2. Trigonometric identities
3. Sequences and Series
I'm aiming for an A* in the upcoming exam.
Lindsay's last review in Mathematics from Salim: Questions from worksheet Really nice teacher. :)
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 taught Mathematics and Statistics at Advanced, Foundation and University levels to a variety of students.
At the Advanced level, I have tutored 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.
At the University level the topics covered have been Probability and Statistics, Linear Algebra, Complex Analysis, Numerical Analysis, Fluid Dynamics, Quantitative Methods in Business, Actuarial Maths, Financial mathematics.
Virender's last completed Mathematics job with Matthieu: 1-2 hrs/week - Need tutor who gives me good exercises and trains me
Virender's last review in Mathematics from Charles: Initial lesson - we can cover a topic e.g. coordinate geometry, and discuss your requirements. It took a while for my daughter to get used to the technology but she got very satisfied when she got the hang of it.
I have been tutoring and teaching for over 14 years, and over half of that has been spent in the position of Head of Science or assistant principal. I believe that I am easy to be around and students feel comfortable when working with me and are confident that they can ask any question, no matter how silly they may perceive it to be. I always try to think of relevant and engaging ways to tackle a topic to enable all abilities to understand.
Having left teaching in September 2018 to spend more time with my baby daughter, I've set up my own business that designs lesson resources for other teachers. This not only means that I have access to hundreds of resources that I share during lessons to back up the learning but also means that I'm aware of the intricacies and key details of all of the specifications, including the International ones
Gareth's last review in Mathematics from Namphet: Resistance of a wire i feel more confident on this topic thanks to Gareth
