I like solving puzzles. This has lead me to thrive throughout my maths education, and I now enjoy helping my students to understand and solve the puzzles they face during their maths education.
I studied maths up to masters level at Oxford University, graduating in 2018. After a brief stint working in financial services, I am now applying for maths PhDs. My time at Oxford, including time working with the admissions teams, has left me with a good understanding for the application process which allows me to specialise in tutoring for the Maths Aptitude Test for Oxford applications.
With 2 years of experience in tutoring the MAT, I have a wealth of experience to draw from for the benefit of my students.
Primarily I will aim to build on the existing knowledge of those that I tutor, tailoring tutorials to each student. This is now my third year tutoring for the MAT, after having 3 regular students last year. I specialise in MAT tuition, where I will take a more conversational approach.
This is an exam where lateral thinking and a confident grasp on the maths involved is most important, and so in tutorials I will aim to challenge students to make them as confident as they can be for this exam – my goal is to make students see the questions here seem less like tedious A level questions are more like fun puzzles!
