Description

Hi, and thank you for checking out my advert.

As a professional tutor who has taken more than 90 students through their SQA maths exams, if you, your friend or your family member struggle with mathematics and require assistance in preparation for an upcoming exam, I will be able to help!

Technical subjects such maths are plagued by overcomplicating jargon.

The key to success in maths lies in creating simplified, intuitive explanations. Unforgivingly complex explanations offered by most teachers and textbooks do nothing to aid a student's understanding of the subject, which so often leads to them believing that they are "just bad maths".

In stark contrast, I believe that no one is just bad at maths. My experiences (please see below) have shown that all any student needs is a teacher who can communicate ideas to them in a way that caters to their unique learning requirements. I pride myself on my ability to take complicated topics and split them in to clear and manageable chunks that students can easily digest at their own pace.

As a professional tutor, I am confident that I will be able to help you/your family member with your/their issues and help boost confidence and performance markedly.

Please see below for information on my educational background, teaching experience, pricing and other important details. Feel free to contact me at your convenience to discuss arrangements for your first lesson.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Best Wishes,
Andrew


Background and Credentials
I graduated from the University of Glasgow with an Honours Degree in Physics through which I honed very strong mathematical skills. I am currently a full-time investment analyst at a prominent private equity firm where maths remains an active part of daily life. Prior to this I worked for Morgan Stanley in their finance department. Having tutored full-time in the past I have found it very hard to give up as I enjoy it so much, so I still tutor for around 20 hours a week on top of my day job. High-level maths therefore remains a prominent part of my daily life (as it has been for the past 13 years). In school I had a particular flare for mathematics and sciences and achieved A band 1's at both Higher and Advanced Higher levels in these subjects.

Teaching Experience
Throughout my university career and thereafter I have taken over 90 students through their exams. I have numerous references available from past clients and I would be happy to provide these upon request. Additionally, as part of my final year coursework at University, I completed a peer learning program which involved tutoring/mentoring first/second year University physics students on a weekly basis. Alongside this we would also research, analyze and write reports on various teaching methodologies and techniques and our observations on the implementation of these in practice.

Tutoring Approach
Understanding is always better than memorisation. True depth in understanding eliminates the need to remember facts/processes/tricks/examples as much, which makes an exam a whole lot less stressful (from personal experience!) My aim when tutoring is always to foster this depth in understanding and not simply to get a student through an exam on their capacity to retain information temporarily. I help my students develop this intuition by breaking down topics into manageable chunks and comparing technical situations to real life scenarios using analogies that are intuitive and logical, and thus far easier to comprehend.

Pricing & Discounts
Lessons are charged at £40 per hour. Discounts are available for lessons purchased in blocks (10 lessons, 10% discount).

Area Serviced & Travel
I can cover most locations in the Glasgow area. I am both willing to travel to a student's house or to have them receive tuition at my own home.

Availability
Evenings and weekends - please enquire regarding current schedule.
