About Me

I am currently a teacher at the specialist King`s College London Mathematics School.

I teach AS Computer Science, and support with preparing students for the mathematics admissions tests of various universities (Oxford MAT, TMUA, STEP).

I also run outreach sessions for y10 and y11 students covering areas of mathematics beyond the GCSE/A Level curriculum.

Tutor Experience

I have three years tutoring experience of GCSE Mathematics, as well as A Level Mathematics and Further Mathematics. In addition, I have eight years experience supporting students with mathematics admissions tests (MAT, TMUA and STEP).

Aside from this, I have worked at King`s College London Mathematics School for eight years, teaching AS Computer Science. My role has also involved mathematics outreach for y10 and y11 students. We take a very socratic and collaborative approach to learning, where we encourage students to explore rather than just "telling them the answer".

Before working in a school (during my PhD), I took on a range of tutorials for undergraduate mathematics students, mainly based on 1st and 2nd year modules, covering introductory calculus, analysis and abstract algebra.

I am currently open to tutoring maths at GCSE and A Level, as well as select university maths modules (mainly in pure maths and other intro courses). I am also available to help with Computer Science at GCSE and A Level.

Over the summer, I am much more flexible with tutoring sessions. However, during the school term time, I mainly offer weekend sessions (with weekday evenings open to negotiation).

Topic Expertise

My main area of expertise is in mathematics, which I studied at university for both of my degrees.

My secondary area of expertise is in Computer Science. I have been teaching AS Computer Science for the last 8 years.
