My Approach to Tutoring
I believe that Mathematics is an extremely intriguing and beautiful subject, but it can sometimes be hard to fully grasp. Therefore, I spend most of my preparation time thinking how to make my classes as accessible as possible. I try to find the best choice of informal words to describe hard mathematical concepts; and I think which examples would give me the most elegant introduction to the subject. For example, I use simple questions such as “How many number are there?” to the more elaborated concepts of cardinality and countability. With the simple example that there are as many Natural
Numbers as Integers, the students quickly realise that their intuition is not enough to answer
the question. This usually engage their interest long enough to endure the explanation of
Cantor’s diagonal method and uncountability.
During the class, I first focus on the main ideas behind the theorems providing examples and analogies with the material that the students should be familiar with. This helps them to understand the structure of the lesson. Afterwards, I carefully go through the details trying to stimulate introspective questions such as: why a particular step is necessary; why all the assumptions are needed; why any lemma is important to the overall subject. This process of constant scrutiny, on one hand, reinforces learning and, on the other hand, it helps the students to develop their own reading and writing skills. Furthermore, I think that participation is a key part of the learning process. In order to stimulate it, I always address simple questions to the students. This, in turn, makes them more confident in asking questions. In this way, I can quickly spot which part of the explanation they find difficult and focus more on them.

Henry Nurick – Private Tutor in Central London and Brighton
I am a Mathematics graduate from Cambridge University, where I specialised in Group theory, Galois theory and Graph theory. Since graduating I have been a Data Analyst and Software Engineer for a startup called MoveGB. I was soon promoted in the company and became a product manager. My next role was in the Marine Insurance industry, however I found teaching Mathematics was much more engaging and interesting for me, so I soon decided to pursue private tuition and have been tutoring ever since. ...

Richard Blewitt – Private Tutor in London
I am here to help. With 10 years tutoring experience, I have helped students from all backgrounds. Whether my students have learning difficulties or they are competing with elites, the care and attention that I pour into each of my classes is the same. I help my students because I can empathise with them. I don't only can I help them with their maths, I help them with their confidence. I empathise with them. Each student has their own story, their own background and their own struggles. Using the experiences that I have gained throughout my mathematical journey (and my life journey) I inspire the best in my students. ...
Stuart Gardner – Private Tutor in West London
I graduated from Cambridge University with a first-class BA and a first-class MSci in Natural Sciences (Physical), specialising in Physics after my first year; in my final (Master's) year I achieved a mark of 80%, finishing in the top 20 of my year. Since university, I have worked for three years as a management consultant in aviation, but am now returning to university (Imperial College London) to study for a Masters in environmental technology.
As part of my degree, I completed a course in Physics Education. I also taught Maths on a voluntary basis during my final year at university and spent a summer in Spain teaching English. Having enjoyed my previous experiences in teaching and mentoring younger colleagues at work, I am excited about the prospect of tutoring in Maths and Physics in London; I still retain a strong interest in the subjects and hope to communicate this interest to students, perhaps encouraging them to pursue a career in science or mathematics! ...
Federico Barbacovi – Private Tutor in London
I am a PhD student at University College London studying Mathematics, more precisely Algebraic Geometry. Before coming to London I studied at Sapienza University of Rome, where I obtained a Master (2018) and a B.Sc. (2016) in Mathematics. During the years at University in Rome, I started tutoring. If first came to me to start tutoring after the many chances I had had of helping my colleagues at University understanding concepts with which they were struggling with. Since then, I have had many opportunities to shape my approach to tutoring, both as a private tutor, and as a teacher (when I was in Italy I taught a short course to help final year high school students to prepare for their Maths exam; between October 2018 and October 2019 I worked for a company which produces e-learning material for high schools in Italy; during Covid-19 lockdown I taught an outreach course aimed at young students). ...
Samuel Channon – Private Tutor in Greater London
I grew up in Devon and went to a local Grammar School, where I first started tutoring whilst studying for my A-levels. I went on to study Mathematics at Trinity College, Cambridge, graduating in 2013 with an MA (1st-class) and MMATH (Merit). I was offered a place at Warwick University to study for my PhD, but ended up changing fields. I am now studying Medicine on an accelerated graduate entry program at Barts and the London School of Medicine, graduating in 2018.
Although I've ended my own career in Maths for now I have never lost my passion for the subject, and enjoy continuing this through tutoring. I've worked with students of all abilities, with the bulk of my experience tutoring Maths and Physics at A-level and GCSE standard. I also tutor Biology and Chemistry, drawing on the past two years I have spent studying Medicine. Studying Medicine has enhanced my tutoring ability, as we spend a considerable amount of time developing our communication skills. ...
Edward Smith – Private Tutor in London
I studied mathematics at Trinity College Cambridge; I graduated with a MA (1st) and a MMATH (Distinction); and was a Senior Scholar. Before Cambridge I went to school in Aiglon College, a premium boarding school in Switzerland. I grew up in England and Switzerland, but also lived in Asia and Africa as a child.
I started tutoring and helping other students learn in school and have been tutoring for around 15 years. I have mostly tutored maths and physics from 13+ and Common Entrance all the way up to University degree level. With Wentworth Tutors, I have also helped several students prepare for interviews with Strategy Consultancy firms: for internships, in the graduate milkround and for experienced hire positions. However, when I worked as a strategy consultancy, I also ran general business and technical skills training for groups and in 1-on-1 teaching. As a consultant I regularly helped train colleagues in Excel, programming, and SQL; and even wrote some of the courses.
Prior to co-founding Wentworth Tutors, I worked at OC&C Strategy Consultants, a top tier strategy consultancy, based in London. I am Wentworth Tutors’ business manager – setting the business strategy as well as managing the day to day operation and administration of the business. ...
Sam Irving – Private Tutor in East London
My name is Sam and I am a would-be barrister with a particular interest in medical law and its associated ethics. I got to the Bar course, where I am currently, via Oxford, KCL and a little northern town where I grew up with my Mum and Dad.
After a whirlwind of youth in school and college, I managed to stay just about upright and with a decent record of attainment to see me out of the door with something of a course plotted. I like to think I did a little here and there to help some of my friends out along the way.
I took plenty of opportunities to hear my own voice, with debating and mooting competitions dotting my CV. I like to think I've learned to control my verbosity and use it only for the forces of good now.
Oxford was an education in many more ways than one and the fabled tutorial teaching was a reinvigoration in the power and enjoyment that exists in a focused teaching session. My friends are I'm sure all delighted that I have adopted the method whenever I'm trying to teach them something important .... even if they don't always want to hear it.
When I manage to put work and my oratory to one side, I try to balance it all out with a healthy smattering of song, dance, tea and cake. Because that's what life's really all about. ...
Tom Meltzer – Private Tutor in West London
I am a fourth year Physics PhD student at UCL. My occupation relies on my ability to understand complex theoretical concepts and explain them to both technical and non-technical experts.
I am a high achiever, obtaining a First Class (Hons) MPhys Theoretical Physics from The University of Sheffield. In my final year I scored the highest grade in the University for "Analytical Dynamics and Classical Field Theory" (93%). Other final year results include 88% in "Advanced Quantum Mechanics" and 84% in "Aspects of Modern Physics". I currently work in theoretical/computational quantum physics looking at electron scattering in molecules. Therefore I have a good grounding in maths, physics and programming.
I studied all three sciences, maths and further maths at A-level. For G.C.S.E I took triple science, maths and electronics (in addition to 7 other subjects).
In addition to my academic experience I have over two years corporate experience. I successfully completed a highly competitive internship and graduate scheme at Barclays Bank PLC, where I worked predominantly in Credit Risk and Credit Risk Modelling. I left the Bank so that I could develop my technical skills, such as, quantitative analysis and programming. Due to my experience working in a professional environment I am also well equipped to advise students how to write CVs and apply themselves to industry or academia. ...
