I have been tutoring in my spare time for the last seven years and I very much like helping students gain confidence in mathematics
. In school I enjoyed helping my classmates with problems, in college I worked on the physics
homework help desk in my university, worked as a teaching assistant and private tutor for college and high school students. My last tutoring experience was in Oxford, where I finished my PhD in applied mathematics this year, and in London. I had tutored 10 students of middle and high school level to prepare for exams or general review. I also have experience with younger students -- for two years I was helping 10 and 11 year old students prepare for entry exams into Eton College, Winchester, and other top boarding schools in England.
I would love the opportunity to help you or your child gain a better understanding of their subject and learn to approach mathematics problems with confidence, in school and everyday life.
