Hi, I'm Will, a recent maths graduate from the University of Warwick. It's not long ago that I was studying at school myself so I remember exactly what did and didn't work for me when it came to learning tough concepts. While I was at uni I led a class of first year students studying for their exams, so I've helped students jump just about every kind of maths and science related hurdle out there! I'm here to give you hour long sessions of guided exercise questions and in-depth explanations, as well as to answer whatever questions you may have - I know it's a cliche but no question, big or small, is a stupid question!

My tutoring experience ranges from helping my brothers out with their GCSE maths and physics exams, to teaching calculus to a class of 20 first year undergraduate students. While at school I was a physics mentor and took a struggling younger student under my wing through his GCSE preparations, helping him get a C in his final exam so he could stay at the school for sixth form. Whether it's teaching a large class or one-on-one sessions, I've found that the best way to learn maths (or science) is to do maths. By this I mean taking an active role as the student; sitting back and watching your teacher answer questions never worked for me, and in my experience doesn't work for others! The approach that's worked best with my students is to aim the pupil in the right direction and offer a helping hand along the way when needed. That way, when it comes to the exam and the training wheels need to come off, they can go with no support!
