Sean Hao - Private Tutor in London
I am a Maths graduate from Christ's College, University of Cambridge. I am an analyst in a financial firm in London. I believe in education and have a passion for teaching so I decided to be a Wentworth tutor. I went to a comprehensive school and my school couldn't give me any help for STEP, I understand students' problems at this stage, I would like to help them to prepare and pass STEP exams.
Subjects I Teach
My Education & Qualifications
University of Cambridge, 2014 – 2017
School: QE Academy
I completed both A-level Maths and Further Maths in year 12, with an average score of 97.5%. I achieved S in STEP III.
My Tutoring & Teaching Experience
I have plenty of teaching and tutoring experience. I volunteered as a mentor in Cambridge Shadowing Scheme. I spent three days supervising a student who came from a disadvantaged background. I was a tutor in an international summer school. I was responsible for designing and implementing social activities for a class of Chinese students, my duty also included teaching English. Additionally, I assisted a Year 11 Maths classroom for six months and taught STEP in Cambridge University workshops.
My Approach to Tutoring
STEP prepares you for Cambridge Maths Tripos so I adopted the style of Cambridge supervision. I set at least 6 questions every week (students can choose to do some of them), mark them beforehand. In my lesson, I will go through all the questions, highlight the things students did well and had problems, and give a feedback on how to improve techniques at the end of the lesson.
Fun Facts About Me
Outside work, I enjoy playing pool and tennis. I also like reading books, I am a massive fan of Murakami.

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. ...
Richard Blewitt – Private Tutor in London
What is the key to successful learning? Interest! Sadly, this is not a feeling that is shared by a number of maths students, hence their struggle. My joy of my job, is to incite a sense of passion and enthusiasm for maths that will breed future success.
I am extremely familiar with the maths syllabus (from the ages of 4-18). I was able to take my maths GCSE a year early and receive an A*; following that I received 99% in one of my maths A level modules and came out with an A* overall. I then went on to graduate from the University of Sheffield studying Business Management with Maths. Currently, I am a part qualified ACA Chartered Accountant and I expect to be fully qualified by December 2020.
However, as a teacher, it is not my past achievements in the mathematical field that are important, but the future achievements of the student. And how I can help them achieve success.
What gives me the edge when teaching is how I effectively communicate my knowledge to the student. I believe communication is key. This is why I have worked hard to make communication is my speciality.
My method is simple; I focus on breaking down challenging topics down into small “bitesize chunks” enabling the information to be delivered in a more manageable way for my students.
I feel it is important to create a safe learning space which allows my students to feel comfortable enough to make mistakes. As I utilise these mistakes and turn them into opportunities for learning, rather than things to be penalised for.
I am available for both skype and home visits, and I look forward to hearing from you. ...
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. ...
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! ...
Henry Hall – Private Tutor in West London
I recently studied Modern Languages & Management at undergraduate level at Cambridge, won the Eton College Spanish prize, earned top grades at GCSE, AS level & A Level and was awarded a Scholarship in Modern Languages in my 1st year at Cambridge. I have received a lot of tutoring along the way so am familiar with what works and what doesn't. From my experience, the best tutors make grammar, literary analysis & learning simple but also highly engaging. I enjoy teaching at all levels from GCSE to University Admissions and find it very satisfying to see my tutees progress and enjoy the sessions. I'm sociable, play a lot of sport in my free time and love to travel. Please do get in contact if you have any questions! ...

I have just finished a degree in Natural Sciences (Biological) from the University of Cambridge and am now at music college, pursuing my passion for guitar performance. I achieved 5 A*s at A-level (with a 96.1% average at A2), taking subjects: Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Religious Studies. At Cambridge, whilst covering the full range of biological disciplines in first year (from Ecology to Biochemistry) as well as maths, I chose to specialise in Physiology, Development, and Neuroscience in my final year. On top of this, I maintain an interest in Evolutionary Biology (I am a big fan of Richard Dawkins!). For several years at Tonbridge school, I was involved in a community action program called 'Science For Schools', where we would host groups of primary school children weekly, running practicals and performing exciting demonstrations for them; the purpose being to try to encourage enthusiasm for science ...
Arthur House – Professional Teacher in Central London
I am a friendly, encouraging teacher with over a decade's experience, particularly with students aged 11-13. Since graduating from Cambridge 13 years ago I have taught students of all sorts of abilities and ages (5-58) anywhere from Notting Hill to Nairobi. My curiosity about the world has drawn me to journalism as well as teaching. I worked at the Telegraph for two years and now I write about arts and culture for The Economist’s 1843, The Spectator and Apollo magazines. I am also the co-author of 'What on Earth is Going On? A Crash Course in Current Affairs' (HarperCollins, 2009 - Sunday Times 'Stocking Filler of the Year'). Both my teaching and writing are informed by a desire to understand the world, and to help others do so too. ...
Laura Caune – Private Tutor in Central London
I am a graduate student of computing science at Imperial College London. After graduating, I hope to pursue research in artificial intelligence for a PhD. I have a first-class honours from University of Bath in Mathematics. During my time at Bath I worked as a tutor for the university tutoring first year students. I have also completed the International Baccalaureate Diploma, focusing on higher level maths.
I have a deep appreciation of the logical and structured world of mathematics and enjoy passing it on. I believe mathematics to be a beautiful, interconnected subject. Thus, I am motivated by the thrill of sharing this belief and witnessing students realise how perfectly everything fits and connects in the world of mathematics. My passion for mathematics combined with knowledge gained by extensive study of the subject makes me a dedicated, caring and enthusiastic tutor. ...
Sam Irving – Private Tutor in North 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. ...

Before Cambridge I attended King’s College School, Wimbledon where I completed the International Baccalaureate Diploma, achieving 45 points.
