Information about Max

I am an Oxford University graduate with a first-class honours degree in Physics and six years’ experience teaching Maths and Physics. I find tutoring incredibly rewarding and always enjoy watching tutees surpass expectations they had of themselves at the start of the sessions.

I have recent experience of sitting exams and succeeding in them so have a good knowledge of exactly what is required. A focus of mine is to give students a proper understanding of the material in the exam and I will always have several approaches to explaining a concept. Knowing all the material will undoubtedly see a student succeed, but I also have an excellent knowledge of tips and tricks specific to maths and physics papers to pick up the final marks so the student achieves what they are capable of. I can also give relevant and up to date advice on exam technique so the student can make the most of their ability on the day.

I also have experience of working with students who are often worried or embarrassed about not understanding something. This is common, so I endeavour to make students feel comfortable asking questions about concepts that they feel are simple or that they `ought` to know already.

Availability: ***Available until July 2020***

Willing to travel: 15 miles

Experience: With over 3 years experience of teaching A-level maths and physics, I am well equipped to deliver high quality tuition. I have made particular progress with students in helping them to fully understand the more challenging areas of the course and pick up the tricks applicable to the exam.

I have taken a 14 day course teaching physics in schools run by the University of Oxford, which included time working with students in a secondary school. This has given me a great insight into teaching methods and understanding the challenges students face in school-based learning.

During my time at Oxford as well as RGS Guildford, I have taken on several tutees and have been successful in converting C-D grade students into A-grade students at GCSE-level maths. I have considerable experience with teaching maths for common entrance and I have also taught children as young as 8, getting them to enjoy the subject as well as understanding new ideas.

Max was easy to communicate with and worked well with my son. I am glad we found him, it is just a shame he isn`t around for longer

Max is a great help to my child whose confidence in maths is low. He is professional, knowledgeable, helpful, clear, approachable and patient. Highly recommended.

Max tutored my daughter through Skype sessions as he was at university at the time. This worked really well for my daughter, he could share his screen and show the processes of working out questions, as she followed on her own screen. This made the sessions like a classroom/lecture set up and meant that she really understood what was going on. Her maths improved massively with his help and she left her secondary school with an A in Maths GCSE.

Max gave my daughter, studying A level maths, a few last minute lessons before her exams. He was happy to help her with all the topics and past exam questions she was struggling with, and explained things in a very clear way which helped her enormously. He was quick at responding to messages and very punctual and efficient.

Max is an excellent tutor. My 17 year old son is studying A level maths and was finding his college tutor was rushing through the syllabus. Max has been excellent at breaking down the topics and making each concept easier to understand. He has made a significant difference to my son who is now much happier and confident in his own abilities. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

My son is really enjoying his sessions with Max and applying his learning to his A level course. His explanations are clear and my son feels happy to ask for further clarification. Max is always prompt and flexible with altering times etc.

Max is an outstanding tutor, he is professional, organised and really engages with his pupils.
He is tutoring my daughter and her friend in the run up to their GCSE mocks.
Not only have the girls enjoyed the sessions, they have become much more confident and have really increased their knowledge.

I would not hesitate to highly recommend him.

Max responds quickly to messages, comes to our house which I preferred, and he has been flexible in teaching Maths & Science at different levels. My youngest son was reluctant to have a tutor, but has found his sessions with Max invaluable, his confidence has increased and results improved at school in just a short time.

Max was very helpful with enabling understanding and made everything clear and simple. He explained concepts in ways which made sense instead of overcomplicating topics which is more typical of physics teachers. He was also very pleasant, punctual and polite. We could not recommend him more highly.

Max has been a real help with my son`s revision for his upcoming maths GCSE and has boosted his confidence no end. He was delightful to deal with and related well to that age group as well as being a very good, thorough and clear teacher. I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Max is a charming young man, very organised and professional. Our son is already 5* level for Pre U, but there were some aspects in physics and maths that he just could not understand and Max was so good in making that very clear. Our son was very pleased and he had quite a few lessons with Max and will have some more in March.

Max has tutored my daughter in Maths. This is her feedback: "Max has been tremendously helpful. He is patient and he was glad to answer any questions I had. Max is amazing at explaining really complicated concepts and (somehow) simplifying them. I just managed to understand it all from his explanations."

Max is really polite, responsible and always punctual.He is teaching my daughter A- Level maths and is extremely capable of explaining things clearly that she did not understand well. He makes sure that she totally grasps the topic. Would strongly recommend Max.

Both of my sons` aged 15 & 13 think that Max is amazing. He is punctual and conscientious but most of all he has enabled them to believe that they can improve. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone!

Am a student taking maths for A-level and he was very suitable for me. He took the exam fairly recently so was still up to date with the syllabus and clearly knew it very well, would recommend. Also would like to say that the site takes a payment of 20 pounds before you can contact any tutor which i didn`t know.
