Tutorials are on a one-to-one basis and usually last one or two hours.
Location and availability
After tutoring in London for over five years, I have now moved to
Australia. Tutorials with UK students take place online via Skype after 7pm Sunday to Thursday. Students in Australia can arrange
tuition with me in person via the Melbourne Maths and Physics Tutor
Tutorials are always focussed on the student's needs.
My aim is to improve the student's understanding of the subject, rather than only teaching facts to pass an exam. However, at A-level and above it is understanding rather than regurgitation of facts that leads to exam success.
A number of recent students discovered an interest in maths or physics that they never knew they had, and are now pursuing further study in those areas.
I teach a wide range of students:
During term time I help students from state and private schools in London (such as Albion College, Camden School for Girls,
City of London Boys', City of London Girls', DLD, Dr Challoner's, Godolphin and Latymer, Graveney, Hampstead, Harrow, Highgate, JFS, Leyton,
Lycee francais, Merchant Taylors, North London Collegiate School, Queen Elizabeth School, St Hellen's, St Marylebone, St Paul's Boys',
St Paul's Girls', Southbank International, South Hampstead High School, University College School,
Westminster and Westminster Kingsway),
and from further afield (such as Bedford, Caterham, Eton, Kings College, Marlborough College,
Roedean, Rugby, St Swithun's, Winchester College and Worth).
I help prepare the students for A-levels, International Baccalaureate and university entrance exams (such as the Oxford Physics Aptitude Test, the Oxford Maths Admissions Test or the UKAT and BMAT exams).
I help students from universities that have so far included Bartlett, Birkbeck, Cass Business School, Durham, European Business School,
Greenwich, Imperial College, Imperial College Business School, I.E., King's College London, Leeds, LSE, London South Bank, Open University,
Oxford, Queen Mary, Regent's Business School, Southampton, Staffordshire, Stern, TRIUM, UCL, and Westminster Business School.
I help the students with topics in their degree that are related to physics, maths, quantitative methods, statistics or finance. I also help students prepare for admissions exams, such as the GAMSAT.
I also help executives improve their numeracy and maths skills. This can help them with their job, if they have to sit a numerical reasoning exam as part of a psychometric test, or a qualification such as the Certificate of Quantitative Finance.
Some students are studying for fun or to keep their brains active. One student used the concepts explored in tutorials as inspiration for her art.
I have a CRB Enhanced Disclosure Certificate, and refuse to teach under-16s in person unless an adult is present.
