Michael Tutoring Profile

Experienced STEM tutor with over 500 hours tutoring experience and four degrees from Exeter, Cambridge and Warwick.

About

Michael boasts over 500 hours of teaching experience and holds four degrees, including a First Class Honours, in Maths, Theoretical Physics, and Computational Chemistry from Exeter, Cambridge, and Warwick. As a highly qualified STEM tutor, he also offers Oxbridge entrance exam preparation, personal statement guidance, and early-round Mathematical and Physics Olympiad training. Michael offers both online and in-person tutoring services, catering to students from GCSE to undergraduate level. His expertise spans a wide range of subjects, including Introductory Biophysics, Mathematics for Economics, Geometry, Linear Algebra, Markov Chains, Electromagnetism, Quantum Mechanics, and Statistics and Probability. His teaching journey began at the University of Exeter, where he mentored gifted students in an advanced Mathematics programme at the Exeter Mathematics School. Later, he served as a tutoring assistant at the University of Warwick, supporting students in the Departments of Mathematics and Computer Science. Additionally, Michael provided virtual teaching assistance to third-year Numerical Methods students at King's College London.

Experience

My experiences with teaching and tutoring first began at the University of Exeter, where I worked as a student mentor at the Exeter Mathematics School in its first year of being established. This was a specialist school designed to encourage and equip gifted teenagers to pursue mathematics as their chosen subject at university. Responsibilities included supervising them on research projects that extended beyond the A-Level curriculum on a weekly basis, in addition to providing opportunities to visit the university.

I later worked as a tutoring assistant at the University of Warwick for both the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. This involved conducting tutorials and study groups for second-year Mathematics and Computer Science students in Abstract Algebra, Real Analysis, Topologies and Metric Spaces, and Logic and Verification, which involved presenting questions and solutions that used familiar theory to solve unfamiliar problems. I have also acted as a virtual teaching assistant for third-year students in Numerical Methods at Kings College London.

Alongside this, I have acted as a private tutor for many students online via the company MyTutor. Whilst working with undergraduate students topics have ranged from Introductory Biophysics, Mathematics for Economics, Geometry, Linear Algebra, Markov Chains, Electromagnetism, Quantum Mechanics, and Statistics and Probability (the last of which was a topic I worked closely on with a recent student to reach a very comfortable First, who would like to continue being supported throughout her final-year studies).
