Frequently Asked Questions
What resources do you have?
I provide several resources for students, which are including but not limited to: tailored worksheets, written tutorials, spreadsheets to track student weaknesses, links to suitable video content and much more.
Before starting tuition with me, you will ideally want to create a Microsoft or Outlook email (unless you already have one), a Google email (unless you already have one) and download Microsoft OneNote – regardless of whether you elect to be tutored online or in-person.

I am based outside of the UK, when can you tutor?
I have tutored students who have been based in many countries whilst I have remained in the UK; such as Bahrain, Ireland and China. Feel free to contact so we can find hours that work for all parties.
What results have you attained in the past?
My results have been extremely strong and consistent.
Just to put things into context, one of my first ever students was able to achieve an A grade in an A-Level Maths exam (M1) after just a week of tuition, despite not knowing any of the content previously! Feel free to click here (feedback from 24/12/2015; fourth from bottom) for evidence!
That’s a U GRADE TO AN A GRADE with only ONE WEEK TUITION despite only being in my first year of tutoring full-time!
One of the reasons for this is that I have advanced methods of tracking progress and methodical lesson structuring (tracking progress is VERY VERY important to ensure that students don’t forget concepts: I personally use colour-coded spreadsheets applying the well known revision technique: “spaced repetition”, feel free to search for more details regarding this technique!)
As a result, it becomes far easier to tailor homeworks and plans to meet student requirements.
I've never done an online lesson before, how can we get started?
Not to worry!
For online students, a free “set-up” session is offered to ensure that we have the right equipment and configuration.

Looking at your track record, you appear fantastic: I'm seriously considering doing a first lesson with you, but there are so many tutors and I'm still unsure about which tutor to go for
I know it can be difficult to find the right tutor: I would say that around 80%-90% of the students I have tutored have used the services of at least one other maths or stats tutor before they have used my services permanently.
Nonetheless, I always encourage students and parents to do thorough research before selecting a tutor that’s suitable for them.
If you are looking for other tutors – for maths, stats or other subjects, then I am happy to help to find the right tutor for you!
Since there are literally hundreds of tutors to choose from, it can be difficult to actually know what constitutes a top quality tutor; especially if you haven’t used one before.
Below, I have provided some criteria that you want to consider. I will also indicate what I provide so you have a useful comparison. You can then mould your questions that you might want to ask tutors based on what is discussed below.
As an example, for A-Level Mathematics, you will want a tutor who:
1. provides plenty of new specification papers (I have around 100 new specification A-Level papers available. Having access to new specification papers is very very important since the old specification papers are not as useful)
2. provides plenty of free resources (for A-Level Mathematics, I provide around 4GB of free resources, that I have spent spent literally thousands of hours producing an organising)
3. ideally has a mathematics degree at undergraduate level from one of the world’s top universities, since this provides evidence that the tutor has attained strong GCSE and A-Level success themselves (I completed my undergraduate mathematics degree at The University of Warwick)
4. has advanced methods of tracking progress and methodical lesson structuring (tracking progress is VERY VERY important to ensure that students don’t forget concepts: I personally use colour-coded spreadsheets applying the well known revision technique: “spaced repetition”, feel free to search for more details regarding this technique!)
5. really wants students to become independent learners (I have gone as far as providing students with all the best channels to narrow down their searches and teaching the techniques about how to self-study)
There are of course, more criteria, but feel free to message if you would like further assistance finding the right tutor!
Although students who have sampled the service of another tutor are almost always very complimentary about the other tutor: time and time again, the students continue to prefer my service rather than the other tutors’.
Last year, one of my students tried the services of six tutors and almost dropped A-Level Mathematics, before she used my services permanently!
Therefore, I believe that I have a strong understanding about what makes a top quality tutor because of the information fed to me from other students.
I hope that these criteria help you find the best tutor for you!
Feel free to contact for further assistance.
