About

I'm a friendly young man looking to provide tuition on days I'm not in college to fund my course. I'm currently studying music but I'm a recent graduate from UEA. I've been tutoring maths for 7 years to people of varying ability and age. I have a passion for both maths and teaching, and I'm often told my tutees enjoy working with me and feel comfortable due to the fact I'm familiar with the curriculum and I'm of a similar age. I'm extremely patient, very friendly and reassuring and really enjoy working with kids. If you like, I can always provide multiple references from many happy customers I still work with in Norwich. I have an A* in GCSE Maths, A-Levels in Maths and Further Maths, a BSc First Class Hons. degree in Mathematics, and a Distinction grade MSc Master's degree in Quantitative Financial Economics (both degrees from UEA). I study music on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, with the rest of the week being mine, meaning I'm very flexibile and have great availability with it being the start of the academic year. If you have any questions or would like further information, please do get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you!

Consider the addition formulae: Cos(a+b) = cos(a)cos(b) - sin(a)sin(b) Sin(a+b)=sin(a)cos(b) + sin(b)cos(a) (I'm going to do the following in degree...
