Experience

I have over 1000 hours tutoring experience in Oxbridge University admissions for Mathematics and Computer Science-related degrees. I also tutor undergraduate Pure Maths topics including Linear Algebra, Calculus, Real and Complex Analysis, Groups, Rings, Set Theory and MVC for economics. I have helped students receive offers from Oxford, Cambridge and Imperial to study Maths and joint degrees.

During my degree I worked as a Student Mentor at the Oxford Mathematical Institute, supporting pupils in their exam preparation. I’ve led MAT, problem-solving and personal statement seminars, later going on to produce full video courses on the MAT and Oxbridge Maths interviews. I am highly experienced with conducting mock interviews with students and teaching interview strategies such as shifting perspectives, proactive exploration and problem-solving frameworks for broad questions. As a Form Mentor, I also support several students with Oxbridge Maths and Compsci application and UCAS strategy.

I offer a wide range of unique private resources including MAT topic guides, exercise sheets, mock MAT papers, Oxbridge maths interview question banks, and guides for the Personal Statement and the interview stage.

Other areas I've tutored: STEP, IC AERO/EEE exam, Philosophy interview and Personal Statement preparation, mathematical problem-solving and Introduction to Philosophy of Mathematics.
