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.
During 2018, Marco has been academic lecturer at the University of Pavia, Italy, teaching the course Quantitative Finance with R, which is a special section of the MSc in Finance course Quantitative Finance. Moreover, during the previous academic year, he was tutor and teaching assistant for the course Econometrics (3rd year BSc in Economics) at the University of Genova, Italy.
Marco has also a relevant tutor experience. He taught both in person and online to a variety of student at BSc and MSc level. He is specialised in quantitative subjects such as Econometrics and programming.
Holding a BSc and two MSc, Marco definitely gained expertise in structuring dissertations in Statistics, Econometrics and Financial Econometrics (subjects of his three dissertations). In addition, doing research on a daily basis for his PhD strengthened his taste for original works and for literature review building.
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’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.
I have the experience, knowledge, passion and tools to help students master Physics, Mathematics, Statistics, and its applications (to Engineering, and Business). I can help you with A-level Physics, IB Physics and AP Physics. I hold a Ph.D. in Physics from University of Missouri. I have been teaching and tutoring students for the last 15 years. I have been an Assistant Professor of Physics at a major university. I have conducted more than 5000 hours of online tutoring over various platforms.
What you can expect from tutorials with me:
Concise, clear explanations: You will end each tutorial confident in your understanding of the topic. You will be able to answer related exam questions, apply concepts in coursework assignments and see how different topics fit in the greater picture.
A tailored program: Whether you want to spend time revising a particular topic, practicing exam questions or discussing a particular topic more in depth, tutorials will be designed to suit your needs.
An hands on approach: At the end of each tutorial, I will send you further material to practice and revise the material covered. Ahead of the following tutorial, I will then correct your work and provide useful feedback. This can take the form of written questions, past papers, programming assignments, etc.
I am looking forward to hearing from you!
The main idea of tutoring is to bridge the gap between the student and knowledge and to make it easier for him/her. For each student, the tutor should have a way that suitable his/her level.
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.
I treat every client uniquely (everyone relates to material differently) and kindly (there are no bad questions).
I have 4 years of experience with The Profs and won their "Top Tutor" award in 2016.
I always tailor my style to the needs of the student. Identifying what the student wants out of tuition is the crucial first step in making the experience a successful and fulfilling one for all engaged. I have many years of experience teaching all manner of Mathematics and Mathematical Programming Subjects especially using Matlab. I am an exclusively online tutoring specialist and have designed my classes and teaching style to be an interactive and effective learning experience.
