Information about Tom

Hi! I graduated from the University of Warwick with a degree in Mathematics in 2017, and I`m currently a full time professional tutor with over 750 hours of experience. I specialise in boosting confidence and working with students who want to learn and are curious.

"Happy to find a right tutor for my daughter- reliable, patient and punctual."
"Tom is reliable and professional and the sessions are a real confidence boost"
"Due to the help received by Tom I achieved an A in C4, an A in C3 and a B in M1. I would highly recommend Tom over all other Maths tutors."

I am particularly adept in curriculum mathematics, having achieved 95+ on all my Core modules in Maths and Further Maths at A Level, although I can also readily teach extra-curricular A Level examinations such as STEP, MAT, AEA and the Senior Maths Challenge (among others). I also achieved highly in Physics, with 100% in the two final papers, so if you need help with this (especially the Applied Maths side of Physics) then I am very able and ready to help.

I attained 3 A*`s in Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Physics at A Level, so I know exactly what is required for the top grades. I also achieved Highest Ever in School for the Senior Maths Challenge and a distinction in AEA Mathematics. My MAT grade was enough to earn me a non-STEP offer from Imperial, and I passed all three STEPs, STEP I in Lower Sixth.

Beyond my grades, I work hard and have a dedication for my subject. Mathematics is the cornerstone of every science, and a proper understanding of it is essential. I love sport (particularly BHAFC) and cars, and keep up with the latest technology.

I am fully DBS checked and can provide my certificate upon request.

Availability: I am available during the working week, exact times vary week-to-week. Please enquire for my most up to date availability.

Willing to travel: 8 miles

Experience: Throughout my education I have tutored those younger than me and worked with some of the brightest young minds, who are now top of their year in the highest ranking universities. I am flexible in tutoring a range of abilities, and have experience from mentoring Year 7 students just learning algebra, through to Year 12 students starting their A Levels, all the way to STEP tutoring and preparing for university entrance exams.

Post-graduation, I have tutored over 600 hours over the course of 2 years. I have recent experience tutoring students preparing for GCSEs and A Levels, from a wide age range and level of abilities.

I am a strong believer that every student is different, and that they each have their own way of learning that works best for them. A great academic record does not necessarily mean a great tutor, however I think that I have the right approach whereby I learn first how the student works best, then implement learning techniques which will drive the best results.

I also strongly encourage an inquisitive and questioning behaviour, where the student is aware that not everything I say should be taken for granted. The key skill universities are looking for is an inquisitive nature, so I do not lecture to the student, I let them give feedback and treat them as an equal, and in most examples let the student lead the session. This way they develop an ability to think for themselves.

My first session is normally spent working out the best tutoring technique, how motivated the student is and what sort of ability they are. For example, in some cases I like to set small amounts of homework which actually help develop a deep understanding of the question, rather than bundles of questions that encourage method-learning repetition.

From here, each session can build on the previous and will depend a lot on the current progress of the student, upcoming examinations, strengths and weaknesses and how confident they are. In general though, I like to go through the content as fast or as slow as necessary, and then do some past paper or textbook questions with the student. Each session I will set an aim determined with the student and work towards that aim.

Has been incredibly helpful in enhancing my skills in mechanics and pure maths as well as providing useful tips that I hadn’t come across before. I particularly find it helpful being able to take initiative when solving maths problems which really helps to consolidate my learning. Would recommend to others without a doubt!

Tom has been a fantastic tutor for my son, who needed some help for a university maths module.I totally recommend him; we will be going straight back to Tom for more tutoring if the need arises in the future. He is a committed patient tutor who explains clearly and thoroughly. Thank you Tom!

Tom worked weekly with my son for the academic year leading up to GCSES.
Tom helped to fill the gaps that were missing by working with him methodically and filling any holes on the way.
My son was at ease with Tom and they made a good team.
Max exceeded his expectations in GCSEs with a 7 in both math and statistics.
