Matt

Maths

 

Subjects and Levels Taught

Maths (11+, GCSE, IB, A-Level)

About Matt

I've always been fascinated by numbers and everything mathematical, even from an early age back in primary education. Ansd that fascination drove me to continue my studies in maths right up to degree level where I graduated from Cambridge with a BA in Mathematics.

Teaching Approach

I am passionate about maths and I love to share that passion in my teaching. Many students find maths difficult, which is often because they have missed out on learning the necessary building blocks along the way. By securing this basic grounding I help students to gain confidence. I'm always keen to breathe some life into a subject that so many are scared of, by using real world examples and showing students how maths is used in everyday life. Often children just need a bit of extra help to develop confidence, at which point their test marks will start to improve.

Personal Interests

I'm a keen cyclist and am usually out at the weekends tackling the Surrey hills. I'm also a novice climber and am enjoying getting to grips with the sport.

Feedback

"Thanks very much for tutoring Joe. I'm pleased to say that he was awarded an A* in maths and that was due in part at least to Matt's patience and ability to engage him in a subject he's never really excelled in. Matt is polite and professional and always kept us informed about Joe's progress". Mrs Hepworth, London

"Emily has always enjoyed her lessons with Matt. He manages to break down difficult concepts and explain them in a way that makes sense.  Matt was always enthusiastic and encouraging and has helped to build Emily's confidence. Thanks". Mrs Kaur.

 

    Sarah

    Maths. English

     

    Subjects and Levels Taught

    English and History (11+, GCSE, IB, A-Level)

    About Sarah

    I studied undergraduate English and history at the University of Durham and graduated with a BA (Hons) in English Literature and History. I also have an MA in English and modern culture from University College London. I've been tutoring in English Language, English Literature and History for over three years now and have found it a thoroughly rewarding experience.

    Teaching Approach

    Every student is different and I'm always keen to ensure that I adapt my own teaching style to their needs. I like to use a variety of teaching materials to enthuse students depending on the area of study. I find using quizzes and multimedia help to engage and motivate students. I love to study literature and enjoy opening this world to students, whether through Shakespeare or Austen or more modern texts.

    Personal Interests

    I love to cook and I also enjoy cycling and walking. I'm also never too far away from a good book!"

    Feedback

      Maths Tutor

      Deb

      Maths

      Subjects and Levels Taught

      Maths (GCSE, IGCSE)

      About Debasish

      I studied undergraduate Mechanical Engineering at Jadavpur University in Kolkata. I also have an MBA from the University of Edinburgh.

      Teaching Approach

      I believe in bringing out the best in every student by ensuring they understand the basic mathematical concepts using a systematic approach. This means in adopting a specific method to improve grades, which is bespoke for individual students. It is important to walk before we run. Education, in my opinion, is about all round development where it is best to set realistic goals for students to enable them to achieve more in the end. What matters to me is to ensure that the student tries their best to achieve their potential grades along with gaining accurate and essential understanding of the subject matter.

      Through perseverance and commitment I have taught many students to achieve the highest grades.

          Teaching Approach

          Through years of practical experience, I am very comfortable in bringing lessons to life. I can draw upon personal experience (some of which is amusing), and even amusing  anecdotes from third parties. Very caring and altruistic, and I provide free materials to students. I believe in education rather than learning, meaning that I do not believe that lesson material should be restricted to just helping a student pass an exam, but I believe it should go beyond that, to be useful perhaps even in future employment. I pride myself in the grades achieved by my students with more than a 75% pass rate, and A Level students generally reaching A or B grades. I am very committed and reliable.

           

          Personal Interests

          I have included first world war history in  my “subjects taught” because I have written a biography (not yet published) about my grandfather, which needed extensive research into the first world war. The story deserves to be made into a film, and I have researched this possibility. Have been a football supporter for 60 years, and some of this come across with examples in my lesson material. With my accountancy knowledge and interests in football, it follows that I have a great interest in football finance. A former treasurer of the Football Supporters Association (London Branch). Now engaged in writing a book on Business Ethics, and have just been offered a contract from a publisher.
