About Dan

I have been teaching for more than 10 years, working exclusively with The Profs for the last 5. I teach finance, statistics, econometrics, and a broad range of other topics from applied mathematics and statistics up to PhD level. I have an extensive familiarity with the undergraduate and postgraduate syllabuses of many UK institutions, including LSE, Durham, Bristol, UCL and Warwick.

An early and enthusiastic adopter of online teaching methods, I pioneered their use at The Profs. I now teach more or less exclusively online, believing this to be the superior teaching solution in most cases. Before teaching I worked in data analytics, and still enjoy doing some freelance data science in my spare time, using many of the same ideas I teach my students.

About Dr Arjun

I believe my role as a tutor is to provide my students with individual assistance and support with their problems, and equally importantly, to try and ignite their interest in studying. I try and engage my students, to stimulate them, while still making them feel comfortable around me. It is essential that students not only get good grades, but also understand concepts, learn to think mathematically and solve problems themselves.

Rather than just showing them how to solve problems, I encourage students to think and work through things themselves, while only gently prodding them in the right direction. This tends to greatly enhance their knowledge and self-confidence, and many are surprised at how well they do.

About Dr Bess

I hold extensive experience in teaching academic writing and research at BA, MA and PhD level, successfully supporting students at Sotheby's MA Art Theory and Business of the Arts, UAL, RCA, Goldsmiths BA Media Studies, SOAS Curatorial Museum Studies, University of Nottingham and Bristol University BA Art History.

I support students in developing critical, analytical thinking and ways to structure ideas which the higher-order and complex thinking that academic research and writing demand. Working internationally, I practice a deep understanding of the challenges that a student with English as a second language face in studying in the UK.

Students tell me that: "I am hopeful you will be around to help with tutoring (what you are so good at)!

" I just wanted to let you know that I got my results back for the thesis and I got a 1st! (78.5%!) I could not have done it without you, and I am so grateful."

"I remember and benefit from Bess's inspiring, encouraging and empowering approach. She just gave me that extra nudge to go for the goals that I want to achieve and to have the courage to "cross the Rubicon."

Professional feedback states that: "Bess has proved she is a flexible and responsive teacher. She looks carefully at the needs of the student and responds accordingly, devising and structuring schemes of work and lesson plans which meet the differentiated needs of the learners. Bess also uses enjoyable and relevant topics which motivate the learners and help them access the experience in a fun and stimulating way.

About Dr Tobias

Archaeology, which I studied for my first degree, remains a passion of mine. As my academic career has progressed, I have moved slightly away from it in recent years but it remains an area of study which I still value a lot and try to engage with on a volunteer basis as regularly as possible. The shift I have experienced myself, changing from a science based degree to a far more humanities orientated degree, has really helped me to gain an insight into the scale of change many students can feel moving from GCSE to A-level and then to university and this has been reflected in my approach to tutoring. I always try to show my students that learning should be fun and not as daunting or intimidating as it may first seem. My greatest passion is teaching and I have always loved helping students find their own way around new concepts and also for me to learn from them, which is something with makes one-to-one teaching so fun.

Outside of education my other passions lie in the fields of art and computers. I combine these two interests in my own digital art which is something is really really enjoy. I believe that it is vial for people, no matter what stage of their life they are at, to remain in touch with the things they love and are passionate about, beyond their own schooling or career.

About Jack

I am an enthusiastic, approachable and highly qualified scientist with a PhD in Geoscience with Biology (Newcastle University) and a First Class Research Masters Degree in Geology (University of Liverpool). I have experience in academia and in industry and I have given lectures internationally, winning numerous awards for communication. Although I have a lot of experience, I have not lost sight of the challenges that face students as they use my tutorials to learn and develop their own knowledge base.

Originally from Wirral, I developed a keen interest in Natural Science from an early age. I have always been passionate about science and I sympathise with students who learn best on a one-to-one basis because I was once in the same boat. I also understand how different students prefer specific learning styles and I work hard to incorporate these qualities into my tutorials.

I know the importance of tailoring every session to match each student's specific objectives, whether it be grade-driven, university exam preparation, general foundation or out of interest. Through my online tutorials, we will push the boundaries of online learning, through practical lessons, web-based field courses and other innovative activities. I also run more traditional, taught learning style lecture courses. Each are optional and tailored to the individual's preferences. I can help with anything from GCSEs to A-levels to undergraduate and post-graduate degrees. I have personally been through each stage myself and I know each grading system well.

Together, we can meet our goals and succeed.

About Katie

After graduating from Edinburgh University, I worked in a media agency for ten years across such clients as Apple, Virgin and Estee Lauder. In 2008 I decided to take a career break which lead me to teaching. I've enjoyed it so much I never looked back!

Four years ago, I started working with the Pronunciation Studio who trained me in phonemics and accent reduction. Since then I have worked with business clients in blue chip companies to help them communicate more clearly and confidently to their clients and colleagues.

IELTS preparation is a speciality of mine. Also, what used to be the standard requirement of around 6.5 has crept up over the last few years to 7 or even 7.5 as the top universities increasingly demand excellence from their applicants. Preparation is absolutely vital and I have achieved excellent results from those prepared to work hard.

In my spare time I am a stand-up comedian and have performed all over the UK, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
