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.

I am a Cambridge University graduate who graduated with a First Class BA & MSci in Natural Sciences, working as a tutor while I train to become a therapist. I achieved 6 A* A-levels, came 7th of 610 in 1st year Natural Sciences, then was ranked top of the year in my chosen specialty of Materials Science in 2nd year.

In my tutoring I specialise in confidence, motivation and exam mindset preparation, and I prioritise deep conceptual understanding over rote memorisation.
