Subjects I teach: GCSE: Mathematics and Further Mathematics A-level: Mathematics and Further Mathematics Higher level: Mathematics and Further Mathematics Most familiar exam board: Any Languages: English - Native speaker Preferred student age group: GCSE and A-level students (15-18) About me: Hello! I am a recent graduate from Brighouse, West Yorkshire, with a first class Master's degree in Mathematics (MMath) from the University of Nottingham. I had a great deal of success at degree level - having won academic prizes in all four years and conducted my own research on carbon fibre preforms. I also spent time using statistical techniques to conduct impact analysis at the University of Bath, where I was a PhD research student. In terms of tutoring, I have taught Further Maths A-level to a group of first year undergraduates and Further Maths GCSE to year 11 students. On top of this, I’ve had a number of online and face-to-face students, across a range of qualifications and exam boards. I love watching the lightbulb spark in my students and confidence blossom over time, allowing them to achieve their full potential. Finally, in my free time I enjoy going to the gym, running and doing puzzles.

With experience in tutoring all the way up to Undergraduate level in Mathematics, Engineering and Physics, I can provide a high level of support and assistance in these fields. I am currently working towards a Doctorate in Engineering with the Universities of Exeter, Warwick, and Cranfield. After completing my A Levels in Mathematics, Physics, and Geography, I completed a bachelor’s degree in Electronic and Electrical Engineering achieving a First-Class degree in which I developed a smart electronic prosthetic system using soft robotics. Alongside my academic experience, I have developed a wide portfolio in my field. From industrial experience in Formula One to renewable energy generation, Artificial Intelligent systems and plant-based wetsuit designs, I am able to provide insights and the knowledge you need pursue Science and Engineering after your A Levels and GCSEs if you wish. I don’t just tutor and research all day either! I (try to!) surf as much as I can and I also work on various wildlife film projects, many being underwater shoots. I’m not here to judge you on your abilities. There are no stupid questions. I won’t be shouting equations at you. I like to work in a relaxed and supportive environment where we can focus on your needs and targets together while tailoring the sessions for you so that we can achieve our goals. During my time on Gostudent, I have clocked several hundred sessions, setup a purpose built tutoring desk environment with multiple cameras/ lighting to aid in tutoring and taken students from low confidence and little understanding to a point where some even chose to pursue their once hated subjects at higher level and are excelling at university/ new careers. I am confident in my tutoring abilities, have been recommended by multiple parents and become invested in my students to do the best they can. It saddens me to say I will no longer be taking any new students or trial sessions while Gostudent continue with their decision not to pay tutors for trial sessions

How can maths tutoring improve grades and self-confidence

Many students struggle with studying and improving their grades and sometimes it’s not just a matter of method or will. In many cases, poor performance in school can be caused by low self-confidence or self-esteem.

Unfortunately, even though qualified teachers in schools do their best, the school system often neglects these two aspects causing both parents and students to underestimate the importance of soft skills in academic success. This root cause can be addressed with the help of a private tutor giving online lessons.

Maths is a complex subject with many levels of understanding, maths tutoring refers to one-on-one tuition and private maths classes for those wanting greater support. Whether you are looking for maths help at GCSE level, A Level or University, maths tutoring can provide support tailored to your child’s needs. For students, maths tuition is an opportunity to enhance their maths knowledge and maths grades, improve understanding and get more from maths.

What are the benefits of maths tutoring? Maths tuition can provide the following benefits

  • Greater confidence - There are many misconceptions around maths, a lack of confidence or not understanding something makes it even harder to master. An online maths tutor can help your child focus, work at their own pace and build confidence in maths and maths-related subjects

  • Improved grades - Tutoring is usually one-on-one so your child is able to get more individual attention, covering any areas of maths that need some extra support or revision-

  • Improved understanding of maths - An extra pair of eyes across your child’s maths work can help find mistakes, highlight parts that need attention or point out shortcuts

  • Maths homework support - maths tutoring can provide maths homework help so your child will have a better idea of the expectations

Teachers in school rarely have time to stop a lesson and repeat the concepts for those who didn’t understand. Private teachers are not part of the traditional school system, which makes it easier for them to explain topics differently and to adapt their teaching style to a single student.

The advantages of studying maths

A fundamental definition of mathematics is an education in numerical sciences that includes algebra, calculus, and basic arithmetic, among other techniques. Mathematics is useful in a wide range of fields from economics to physics. Maths as a university subject frequently focuses on comprehending and verifying theories in mathematical and scientific discourse - or "pure mathematics."

Some students who are skilled at maths and enjoy problem solving don't seriously contemplate studying the subject at a higher level because they are unsure how it will benefit them.

A widespread misunderstanding is that a maths degree is useless unless you intend to teach maths. However, those with maths degrees have access to a wide range of exciting and fulfilling career opportunities.

Maths helps build analytical skills and a critical mindset. You learn to pay attention to all of the assumptions that go into a specific problem or situation, as well as how to break down a complex challenge into manageable pieces. You develop the habit of critical thinking, which involves checking conclusions and results to ensure that they are founded on sufficient data and sound reasoning.

Employers, as well as graduate and professional institutions, hold such skills in high regard. A bachelor's degree in mathematics indicates that you are capable of learning the types of analytical procedures required in a given job or profession, even if those procedures are not specifically mathematical.

Employers understand that if you can perform arithmetic, you can do any job that requires exact analysis and deductive reasoning.

Having a degree or some knowledge in maths gives access to several different career and job opportunities. The main jobs related to maths are:

  1. Auditor

  2. Data or Research Analyst

  3. Computer Programmer

  4. Medical Scientist

  5. Financial Analyst

  6. Statistician

  7. Actuary

  8. Economist

  9. Software Developer

  10. Data Scientist

When the student knows that the time of the lesson is entirely dedicated to them, this makes it easier for them to take their time to understand new concepts without rushing or feeling pressure to keep up with other students’ pace.

What topics can be covered in online maths classes with a qualified tutor?

Maths tuition for primary school

Some parents may feel that maths tutoring at primary school level is unnecessary. However, primary school is one of the most important times in your child’s education and the building blocks laid down during primary years are what determine success later in life.

Having a private Maths tutor at primary school is an excellent way to maintain a good standard of Maths and prepare for the future. Studying basic arithmetic will help students when they come to study subjects like biology, chemistry and physics in future.

Our tutors can help all levels, from Key Stage 1 upwards. They also provide extra support for maths lessons before SATs or other primary school exams like the 11+.

Maths exam preparation and maths revision

Preparing for exams can be very stressful for students. Procrastination is common when it comes to studying. Children will often try to avoid it which only serves to increase anxiety and cause poor performance.

This is the case for all subjects, but especially for scientific ones such as maths, which many people struggle with.

AS & A-level preparation is essential to score well and gain access to the best universities in the UK and the world. AS & A-levels are usually taken when students are in their final years of school, but they can also be taken as adults. For the AS & A-level, each student must select 3 or more subjects (maximum 5) and the preparation takes place over two years.

AS levels and A levels for maths are taught similarly, but A levels are more advanced and take longer to complete. The AS levels are the exams students will take first, followed by the A levels the following year. The grade of the A levels depends solely on exam performance.

If your child is getting ready to sit these important exams then now is the right time to get started with one of our friendly and professional tutors and prepare your child well for their exam.

Whether your child is studying for a maths GCSE or A level in England or the National 3,4,5, maths Higher or Advanced Higher in Scotland we have a tutor who knows the curriculum well.

Especially if time is tight, a tutor can help your child quickly learn and internalize the essentials so that they can go to their exam as stress-free as possible and get the grade they want.Maths homework help

Many students are unable to achieve well in maths because they struggle with class content or find maths pointless or useless. This may be because their class teacher doesn’t have the time to explain things fully or does so in a way that doesn’t spark interest.

This translates into the student hating maths homework and seeing it as a chore. However, maths homework can really help boost a student’s grades.

Maths homework helps students learn new concepts that they will use when completing future work in their classes. It can also help them develop study skills and habits. Most importantly homework can help students get better grades in their classes. Homework is proven to help students stay on track with the rest of their class.

Parents are often not able to help as the curriculum has changed since they were young or their skills just aren’t good enough and it’s much better for students to have support while doing their homework to get the best out of it.

For this reason, our tutors offer maths homework help. This will help your child to keep up with the material at school, have good experiences in maths lessons and to strengthen their self-confidence.

Maths tutoring at degree level

Pure maths, statistics, and applied maths are often included in standard maths degrees. In the first year of studying maths at a higher level, students will most likely be required to take fundamental modules that cover a wide range of topics. In later years, they are able to specialize even more if they so desire. For example, students can elect to take mostly statistics modules, earning a degree in statistics rather than mathematics.

Alternatively, it’s possible to apply for a degree in maths and statistics or applied maths, which are more specialized. However, students will most likely be required to study a wide selection of core subjects in the first year, so initially, there may be little or no difference in practice.

Typical first-year topics include:

  • calculus

  • algebra

  • analysis

  • mechanics

  • probability

  • statistics

  • geometry

  • vectors

  • computational maths

More specialised modules vary by university. A number of options overlap with other subjects, such as:

  • mathematical finance

  • mathematical physics

  • mathematical biology

  • actuarial maths

  • history of maths

  • special relativity

  • quantum theory

  • medical statistics

It's critical to have access to as much help as possible during this critical time of studying in order to prepare students for assessments, assignments, and exams along the path to obtaining a degree in mathematics.

The best way to achieve a top result from a maths degree is to make the most out of each test, coursework assignment, and year. Students can relax in the knowledge that they are not alone in their studies with the help of one of our maths tutors. With tutoring, students receive all the extra attention and support they need throughout their maths degree.

If students are falling behind on their homework or having trouble with specific topics, private degree-level maths tutoring may help them overcome these obstacles. Tutoring will help students build confidence in their knowledge and ability so they can finish their maths degree feeling like a true professional in the field.

All of our Degree level maths instructors have excelled in their studies, allowing them to provide professional guidance on what to expect and how to prepare for everything a university course entails.
