Maths tutor for all ages and abilities. Happy to help with exam preparation

Maths is a highly useful skill in all areas of life as well as most fields of industry. Maths has been a passion of mine since my school days where I managed to achieve an A at A-level in one year. My focus was mechanics and calculus but my teaching skills extend to all levels of from A-level below. My focus on teaching is to try and bring maths alive with the more fascinating ways in which different areas of maths can conjoin and impact the real world. Why are beehives hexagonal shaped for example? Why do spider webs mimic certain road maps?

I've been a chess tutor as well as a maths tutor for some years and enjoy the process of teaching, having taught students as young as 5 all the way up to adults. Feel free to contact me whatever level you're at whether studying for an exam, or just curious to enhance your understanding!

About Me

Growing up play in chess clubs and in tournaments online my passion for chess grew from an early age and at university I taught private students around central and west London. After leaving I started teaching in schools such as st. Pauls in mill hill and Christchurch school in Hampstead before returning to private tuition due to the covid pandemic. My teaching style tends to be informal and I like to make them as fun and therefore as engaging as possible. This can include playing blitz games playing variants of chess such as king of the hill or 3 check. I’m a big fan of ideas and principles that can be applied at all stages of the games and I try to encourage my students to play principled chess.

Education

Kings College London, MA in Philosophy with a dissertation in moral Philosophy
DLD College; 3 As at A-level in maths, economics and physics

Reviews (2)

Simple yet effective way to teach little ones. My daughter is always looking forward to her chess session. I highly recommend Mark!
Mark has been teaching my six year old son chess for about 6 months. My son always looks forward to his lessons and has made great progress throughout this time. Mark is professional and friendly, and I would happily recommend him to anyone looking for a teacher.
Chess is a great game for having fun and sharpening the mind. Suitable for all ages, I offer classes for beginners to advanced players from ages of 5 upwards. As an online player myself with a blitz rating of 2440, I find the study and play of chess endlessly rewarding and hope that some of my passion can rub off on you. I offer lessons on all aspects of the game from the opening to the endgame, from simple queen and king endgames to Novotny interference I can provide puzzles and exercises for any level.

I am a telecommunications engineer graduated from Télécom ParisTech (Master of Science in Digital Radio) I passed my French Baccalaureate in 2006 (Bac S specialty Mathematics) and I obtained a mention very well and the complete score in mathematics (20/20) I can help students prepare for exams and baccalaureate math especially in the French education system.

Jess
Economics, Maths, English or general exam preparation
I can teach economics to alevel or maths and English to gcse level. I have a plethora of experience in tutoring and mentoring children from young ages up to the end of their school careers! I am keen to help and give back to students having had a wonderful and successful academic experience. I would be best at general exam preparation for younger students embarking on the more challenging side of their education.

Sidra
Learn numbers, reading, and much more with Miss Sidra
I am a graduate in Economics, securing a first class honors, with straight As back in school. I have 6 years of tutoring experience, including teaching at schools too. My approach to teaching is more student centric, with the focus of individual needs of the student, not a general teaching style. Hence the practice work, strategy and ways are customised. There is no one size fits all. I do make sure however to be a friend of my students rather than a strict teacher, in a way that thye remember even after leaving. I love children since always and teaching fulfils me. I feel happy to see children learn, grow, and become more confident after bettering their skills. I hate to see students and give up simply due to lack of motivation from school.

Matvey
Mathematics and Statistics (A-level, GCSE, pre-GCSE)
Preparing for university? Just need to pass your GCSE? Or simply want to brush up on maths pre-GCSE? My teaching method, if to be summarised in one word, is pragmatic. The modern syllabus contains a lot of "noise" and explanations that often over-complicate or provide a single style for explaining abstract concepts. I provide different views, catered to you, to help you understand that concepts and give you the tools to solve problems independently. You will not be spoon-fed, you will not be left to your own devices, you will receive an honest and effective framework to approach mathematical problems for key pre-university exams in Mathematics and Statistics. Having taught kids as young as 10 all the way up to undergraduate students, I have experience with various age groups and topics and can shape my approach to best suit the student.

Zineb
Private Maths and Physics lessons in French or English, French lessons
Recent graduate from a French engineering school, I am now a postgraduate student at Imperial College. I have always loved mathematics and I would like to share my love for the science with anyone who needs it. My goal is to make maths and physics simpler and funnier to study in order to help as many students as I can. I have already given mathematics classes in France and have developed a certain way of working. Usually, I first go over the lecture with the student, we read the principles and I take as much time is needed to answer any questions they might have. Then, we move on to exercises for the student to practice and apply what was learned in the lecture. The only key really in to go at your pace, there is no rush and the goal is for you to reach the understanding you desire.

Camille
Centrale Paris student in master at Imperial College, tutoring & private lessons, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Info
Hello, I am a student at Ecole Centrale de Paris, currently in the Msc Sustainable Energy Futures master's degree at Imperial College London. I offer private lessons in mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science and engineering, for students from middle school to high school. I had the opportunity to deepen these subjects through two years of preparatory classes at Stanislas (MPSI & PSI *) then an engineer training. I therefore offer a follow-up adapted to each one, with an emphasis on learning the course and exercises of increasing difficulty in order to work over the long term. This method works: the 3 students I followed last year all increased their grades in a few weeks. I can go home in the Hammersmith / Earl's Court / Kensington and surrounding areas, or by videoconference. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, Camille
