Online Maths Teachers-THE DREADED “R” WORD

May 29, 2020


About Gareth

Studied Financial Computing at Brunel University. I love applying mathematics and economics to the real world to create tangible things.

I am friendly, approachable and adapt my lessons to suit your learning style and pace. Once you have a clear understanding of a topic, I introduce exam questions and develop exam technique. I have completed over 1,000 hours of online tutoring privately.

I have taught in a range of primary and secondary schools in London.

My personal attainment was a 2:1 Honours degree in Financial Computings, so I have a good grasp of what is required from students to achieve top grades in exams.

I also enjoy playing a variety of sports ranging from football to snooker.


I aim to structure my sessions by asking my students to write a list of topics they’re finding tricky to understand and learn, we will then both work on strengthening these areas together. I also want to make sure the core areas and foundations of each topic are well understood before progressing to harder areas. With maths, I find practicing is the best way, so most of my sessions will be based on practice questions and going through examples together. I aim to complete past papers together in preparation for exams and make sure there are no grey topic areas

About our Tutors


Selecting your A-Levels, choosing which course to do or which university to apply to? It’s a big decision to make to decide a big part of your life – but don’t panic, you can alter it if you change your mind or find what you’ve chosen to study or where you’re studying isn’t for you.

There is often one key factor that people don’t realise about their degree or course until they’re at university and potentially struggling. Although it may not say so on the course outline or degree site on the university’s webpage, maths is often something you’ll find you have to come across during your time studying. This is already probably pretty obvious to those pursuing any form of medicine, business or economics but it’ll likely surprise you how many courses incorporate the subject.

A common use of maths outside of the obvious subjects is to enable you to analyse results from studies in social sciences, geography, fieldwork, geology and further areas. And while I’d love to tell you it’s just working out the mean, median and mode which you probably studied in year eight, It’s more complicated than that. Statistical means of analysis are used, which some of us struggle to get our heads around!
