Information about Luke
I have been tutoring mathematics part-time since 2012. I will tutor for KS3, GCSE, A Level, Degree level, or Functional Skills. If you are not a student but wish to learn about particular areas of mathematics that interest you, then I can prepare lessons on selected topics. Adult learners are welcome and group sessions are possible for friends or siblings. I hope that I can share my enthusiasm for mathematics and help you to achieve your academic goals.
I am laid back and try to keep my tutorials relaxed. My aims are to provide clear and concise explanations, to work through lots of examples, and to build your confidence in mathematics. If you find that you often struggle with maths, then we can take a step back and plug any holes in your knowledge.
Please read some of my feedback below.
Availability: I am currently taking on new students and have good availability through the week.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I have seven years experience of tutoring GCSE, A Level and degree level students as a private tutor. I have over forty hours teaching experience at a successful sixth form college and also have taught at a further education college. I have worked as an assistant for university problem classes.
I have a first class honours degree in Mathematics (MMath) and an MRes research degree in Mathematics in the Living Environment, both from the University of York. One of the most useful skills I developed during my studies was the ability to communicate new ideas well. During my MRes degree I completed several research projects, and this ability was very important when discussing my work with my peers and supervisors. I also have experience of giving talks and leading seminars.

Feedback For Luke (14)
Luke is a great tutor for our son. We always have great feedback from him. He is punctual, organised and reliable and his tutoring is excellent. We strongly recommend him.
Super organised and well prepared, patient, and very clear in his teaching. Kind and punctual too.
My son is enjoying his lessons with Luke and seems to be really benefitting - I can see his confidence growing.
Luke is a great tutor. His guidance for gcse exam papers has been pitched at exactly the right level and has given my daughter more confidence during her mock exams. We plan to stay with Luke through to the summer exams.
Luke has done an amazing job with my son and I cant thank him enough. With his support his confidence has improved greatly. He has gone from someone who had given up on maths to feeling happy to continue with it. Thank you Luke
My son has been going to Luke now for a month and I never thought I would see the day when he doesnt kick off about having to do school work out of school he seems to have really connected with Luke and really likes going each week and now says he understands parts of maths he just couldnt get before I would recommend Luke to anyone and if my younger son decides he needs help in maths I will be asking Luke to take him on
Luke is an amazing tutor, patient, knowledgeable, great at explaining difficult concepts. Our daughter thoroughly enjoyed her classes. Will definitely have more classes. Very highly recommended.
Luke has tutored my son for his GCSE maths. This has been the first year for the new 1-9 grading system and Luke has gone above & beyond to research the new exam papers in support of his lessons. He delivers his tutoring in a calm and methodical way which has allowed my son to greatly improve his understanding and confidence of the subject. We fully believe that our son is as prepared as he can be and we would certainly highly recommend Luke.
Luke always responds to queries and bookings quickly and efficiently. My daughter has felt much more confident in her A level studies since her tutoring began and Luke has given her a boost for her exams.
We are currently using Luke as a tutor for our son given his GCSE exams are coming up.
He made my son feel welcome, quickly established a rapport and an understanding of his needs.
After 3 weeks my son has already picked up different styles and feels the extra tutoring is helping him.
Getting him there is the challenge! lol
Luke is very knowledgeable in maths. Tutored in his own home which was a calm, quiet study area. An ideal tutor.
Has an extremely wide knowledge of the subject and explains problems very well. Makes every effort to ensure that tasks set are relevent to the subjects studied and provides excellent worked solutions to practice problems. I would not hesitate to recommend Luke to other students.
With good preparation prior to the lesson, Luke is organised and explains concepts well. I am understanding many aspects of statistics that I previously did not.
I definitely recommend him and am very grateful for his help!
