We Can make the difference


I went from 43% in first year to receiving a masters offer at the LSE! Having almost failed my first year I decided to get tutoring from The Profs in my second year. Thanks to the brilliant quality of the tutors I managed to score a 1st in my second year and receive an offer for the LSE Masters in Management. A big thank you to The Profs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ace your exam with mathematics tutors at the top of their field.

maths is hard. It is the language of science and can seem daunting to the novice. Enter The Profs’ mathematicians to show you how simple it can be with proper guidance and support. We will provide you with a logical, step-by-step and easy-to-follow approach to solving equations and understanding their significance. There’s no better way to learn maths than to drop the textbook and have maths lessons with an experienced and professional private maths tutor who can guide you through problem sets and exercises.

Whether you are a university student and need a university-level maths tutor, need a mathematics degree tutor, have a daughter or son requiring an A-Level maths tutor or GCSE maths tutor or are a professional who needs to sit a maths test: Whatever your needs, once we teach you the short-cuts and tricks of the discipline, you’ll have no problem tackling even the most challenging problem set, assignment or exam.

The Profs will expertly match you with a private maths tutor from our network of professional and supremely-qualified educators. Omaths ur tutors are incredibly experienced teachers, many of whom have taught at the university level and hold advanced degrees. We interview all maths of our tutors before joining our network and assess their teaching standards. Only the maths top 3% of tutors that apply make it through to work with The Profs.

Our Client Liaison Managers will take our requirements and approach the best maths tutors wit relevant experience. We will provide a shortlist of maths tutors. We are proud that 90% of our students work with a specialist in their exact field of study.

Most of our maths tutoring sessions take place online but can, in some cases, be face-to-face. The lessons will take place at times that suit your schedule and your tutor’s.

We’ll call you after your first maths lessons to check that everything is going well. In the unlikely event that you’re unhappy with your match, please do let us know your feedback.

We find the best maths tutor for you! We only feature a small selection of our tutors on our website. If you see a maths tutor that interests you, you can submit a contact form to book them if they have available.

If your perfect fit isn’t online, we’ll find you the ideal maths tutor using our expert matching process. Our Client Liaison Managers will use your information to identify the best online maths tutor from our 450 strong tutor base.

The Profs maths tutors undertake to provide the best help and advice. You’ll be working with an expert who has delivered maths tuition at an advanced level for many years. The tutoring will be tailored to your exact and unique needs and scheduled to suit any timeframe or deadline you may have.

Your maths tutor will arrange an initial consultation to establish your goals and time limit for the tutoring. After that point, you can use their recommendations and can book as many sessions as you need to achieve your desired objectives.

We pride ourselves on our fantastic track record of helping students and their high satisfaction levels.

How many online lessons will I need?

It depends on what you are trying to achieve, but it’s very difficult for anyone to make good progress with any topic in less than 5 hours, total, and we don’t arrange tuition placements for any less than that. We usually recommend a 2-hour session, and many students stick with that length.

Weekly or twice-weekly sessions are usual, but this is always open to discussion with our maths tutors, and depending on the time limit, we can always arrange sessions more or less frequently.

Part of the service our online tutors provide is an initial consultation before you book. The maths tutor will be able to discuss your aims with you and, based on their experience with the topics, will be able to give you an estimate of the time needed. They can also help you structure your study between lessons to ensure that you are making good progress.

What do people say about The Profs Tutors?

We are extremely proud of our online reviews, available on TrustPilot and Facebook. We also store the feedback on all our maths tutors’ work to make sure that we are confident when we put them forward. Unfortunately, we cannot give out details of our students, but you can see their reviews on tutor profiles and find more on the reviews sites mentioned.

Do you have a Code of Conduct?

Absolutely! The Profs are proud to be part of the Tutor’s Association, and we expect all our maths tutors to abide by the Association’s Code of Ethics, which you can find on your Profs Tutor Cruncher account in PDF form. We have also added our own Founding Principles, which we give out in every interview, and Terms and Conditions for tutors, which you can read on this website. If ever in doubt, you can call us in the office. We want you to have the best maths tutor you can be!

Maths tutoring rates depend on the level, the experience of your selected maths tutor, and the exact field of study you wish tutoring. Our system works on a pay-as-you-go model with a one-time registration fee.

Undergraduate maths tutoring starts from £70 per hour and postgraduate tutoring from £80 per hour. Specialist tutoring in very niche fields begins at £120 per hour. School maths is £50 per hour. Our prices start at £150 per hour for those seeking university application support.

There is a one-off fee of £50 for new clients for the first match with one of ourmaths tutors and covers The Profs’ administrative costs. It is only payable when you have a maths tutor with whom you are happy to work. It is refundable if you are not satisfied with your Mathematics tutor and we cannot find a suitable replacement

More information is available in our Terms and Conditions.

The Priority Placement fee for finding maths tutors at urgent notice is £100.

If your deadline is urgent, we charge £100 to push your needs to the top of the pile and focus on finding you the right maths tutor, ideally within 24 hours.

Unfortunately, we don’t offer trial sessions. Still, you will have a chance to speak to your maths tutor before your first session, usually for around half an hour, to discuss your requirements in more detail and help them prepare properly for your time together. We also have a student satisfaction policy for the first session, which you can read more about in our Terms and Conditions.

Matching you with the right maths tutor can’t be rushed, but we won’t be wasting any time either. It usually takes around 2-3 working days, so do get in touch as soon as possible to give yourself the best chance of success. If you need to find someone sooner than that, you will need to request a Priority Placement, for which there is an extra charge (see our pricing page). We will then undertake to find someone on the same day if possible. If we can’t, we will only charge the usual placement fee.

The majority of maths tuition arranged through The Profs takes place online, meaning that students from all over the world can access the best tutors in the UK (and elsewhere). The timing of sessions is always different and depends on your availability and the maths tutor’s schedule. Let us know any preferences or restrictions on your time, and we will do our best to accommodate.

All payments taken by The Profs are on the maths tutors’ behalf and made via debit or credit card or Direct Debit. After the first payment, our payment provider, Stripe, saves card details and further charges are automatic. Don’t worry, though; you’re still in complete control, and you can request an immediate refund of any payment you think is incorrect. Our invoices are weekly, and you’ll have 96 hours to query any invoice from us.

The Profs have helped hundreds of students apply to the UK’s leading universities for undergraduate study. Our team of over 400 tutors can guide the process to maximise your chances of success. We have experience helping students apply for a huge range of courses at all UK’s top universities.

Online maths tutoring allows students to learn from highly specialised tutors from the comfort of their own home. Other benefits include:

  • Flexibility: Online maths tutors are more flexible with their schedules without travelling.
  • Quality: Many of our best maths tutors only teach online. The demand for their services is international.
  • Reach: Top maths tutors are very hard to find, and by choosing to go online, you will have access to more specialist tutors.
  • Recording: Online maths tutors can record your classes and share their hand-written notes on online whiteboard software like BitPaper.

Your Client Liaison Manager will assist you in choosing the most appropriate tutor(s) for your needs. Tutors are interviewed individually, and we collect feedback from every student they work with, so we are well prepared to recommend the tutor who’s right for you.

Once we have all taken your requirements, tutors with relevant experience will let us know how they can help you, and we’ll help select the best one or two to introduce to you. Ultimately, however, the choice will be yours, so ask our team for any information you need.

Absolutely! We’ll call you after your first tutorial to check that everything is going well. After that, you can reach us by email or telephone from 09:00-18:00 Monday – Friday, and we will be happy to help.

Definitely! We only work with the best and most experienced maths tutors in the industry. Almost all of our maths tutors have at least a Master’s degree, and many have been teaching at the university level for decades. Before becoming a maths tutor with us, we interview each individual, and, as part of their interview, they deliver a mock tutorial to demonstrate their abilities. We only accept the best!

No. We undertake to provide the best help and advice by putting you in touch with the right maths tutor. We can never guarantee the outcome of the work, however, at the end of the day, a student’s success is down to them, to their hard work and ability, and we can only provide support towards achieving that success.

Will a tutor do my essay or project for me?

Definitely not. Our maths tutors can only provide support compatible with universities’ ethical guidelines and the Tutors’ Association Code of Ethics. We understand how hard it can be, but we don’t believe anyone benefits from plagiarism.

Things a maths tutor can do: make detailed suggestions for improvements to coursework essays, explain how to run statistical tests on practice data sets, and how to choose which tests to run.

Things a maths tutor can’t do: write material for essays, tell students what to write; edit or correct written work themselves; run statistical tests or interpret the results. See The Profs’ Terms and Conditions for more information on our plagiarism policies.

Maths can be complex for some students. We all have different learning styles and objectives. It is important to consider the following:

  • Academic background and expertise in your subject area
  • Years of experience - do you want a professional or a student to tutor you?
  • Price and availability

A tutor helps students understand and learn the principles of maths. Tutoring can support students with the theory they study by applying the principles to the real world to help them understand and improve confidence.

maths tutors help students develop routine and positive habits with homework, assignments, and exam preparation. As well as providing the right support and guidance to students struggling with aspects of the material, tutors help students excel in maths.

A good maths tutor has a strong understanding of maths concepts and can break them down into simple terms that students can understand. They are patient and focus on the individual needs of the students.

Pricing for maths tutoring depends on the level, the experience of your tutor, and the specific subject you desire. Tuition is a pay-as-you-go service with a one-time registration fee.

The cost of undergraduate maths tutoring starts at £70 per hour, and the cost of postgraduate tutoring is £80 per hour. A specialist math tutor in a niche field costs £120 per hour. School maths is £50 per hour. Our prices start at £150 per hour for those seeking university application support.

There is a one-off fee of £50 for new clients for the first match with a math tutor and is to cover The Profs’ administrative costs. It is only payable when you have been in touch with a tutor with whom you are happy to work. It is refundable if you are not satisfied with your maths tutor and we cannot find a suitable replacement.

A very wide range of undergraduate degrees require a strong math background. All fields of mathematics and the sciences require it. Moreover, it is considered as a key subject for those applying to top universities in the United Kingdom, the United States, or anywhere else in the world.

If you decide to pursue a master's degree in mathematics, then you have hundreds of options available to you. You might like to consider a master's degree in financial mathematics, or in corporate and financial risk management, if you're interested in working in the business world.

As a result of non-stop access to data, many businesses need data analytics and machine learning experts to assess data, provide expert advice, and assist in decision making. You might benefit from graduating with a master's in data science or artificial intelligence.

For what careers is maths useful?

maths is a great option because of the extremely wide variety of career options it can provide. If you're still unsure of your career path, it is a good subject choice while you make your decision. These are some careers you might want to consider if you study math:

  • Actuary
  • Astronomer
  • Chartered accountant
  • Chartered certified accountant
  • Cryptographer
  • Data analyst
  • Data scientist
  • Investment analyst
  • Research scientist
  • Secondary school teacher
  • Software engineer
  • Statistician
  • Financial Analyst

GCSE maths exam covers six main topics. Although you will study other areas in the 2-year course, these topics will all be covered in the final exam. The topics are:


  • Structure and calculation
  • Fractions, decimals and percentages
  • Measures and accuracy


  • Notation, vocabulary and manipulation
  • Graphs
  • Solving equations and inequalities
  • Sequences

Ratio, proportion and rates of change

Geometry and measure

What do you study in IB maths?

IB Mathematics: Analysis & Approaches Standard Level (SL) and IB Mathematics: Analysis & Approaches Higher Level (HL) (which are revised versions of the previous IB Math courses) are two of the toughest classes in the IB Diploma Programme curriculum.

The Analysis & Approaches courses both have five core topics that both SL and HL students study (for different amounts of time):

  • Topic 1: Number and Algebra
  • Topic 2: Functions
  • Topic 3: Geometry and Trigonometry
  • Topic 4: Statistics and Probability
  • Topic 5: Calculus

Additional requirements for Mathematics HL

  • Further statistics and probability
  • Sets, relations, and groups
  • Calculus, formerly Series and differential equations
  • Discrete mathematics

What do you study for a maths degree?

A typical mathematics degree program involves a combination of pure (theory and abstract) mathematics and applied (practical application to the world) mathematics. Some institutions also offer pure and applied mathematics as separate degrees, so you can choose to focus on just one.

Typical first-year topics include:

  • algebra
  • analysis
  • calculus
  • computational maths
  • geometry
  • mechanics
  • probability
  • statistics
  • vectors

More specialised modules later in your degree vary by university. A number of topics overlap with other subjects, especially physics, such as:

  • actuarial maths
  • history of maths
  • quantum theory
  • mathematical biology
  • mathematical finance
  • mathematical physics
  • medical statistics
  • special relativity
