I am also able to offer tuition for the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust competitions such as the Junior, Intermediate and Senior Maths Challenges and the British Mathematical Olympiad. The rate I charge for these lessons is

The most important idea I can convey here is that ability to solve these questions is not a natural trait which some possess and others do not. Practising these questions frequently whilst not consulting solutions too soon is the key to success and if you enjoy these problems then it is worth putting in the time to achieve greater proficiency at them. If you have done well in a recent competition then achieving your goals in a later one can happen if you are able to practise enough. I recommend asking your school to enter you for later rounds even if you don't qualify for them after the earlier ones and try to prepare well in advance. For example, the interval between the Senior Maths Challenge and BMO Round 1 isn't really enough time to achieve your potential - I recommend that you request to sit BMO Round 1 and spend several months or even longer preparing for it.

All of my three children have been tutored by David. My eldest two were tutored in order to help them when they were struggling at school, whereas my youngest is being tutored because he wants to be pushed further as a gifted mathematician.

David is an enthusiastic and talented tutor and has resulted in all three children flourishing in this subject. My youngest (13 years old) is an enthusiastic mathematician and David has successfully mentored him through his Intermediate Senior Maths Challenge, in which he achieved a Silver Award.

I would strongly and unhesitatingly recommend David as a maths tutor.

David is an extremely knowledgeable mathematics teacher with a great command of BMO style questions and teaches really well in a clear, concise and efficient manner. I really enjoyed learning from David and would recommend him to anyone who wants to understand the greater intricacies and complexities of maths.

David provides an overall professional service, encompassing first class education support, time keeping,consistency, very open honest fee build up and adequate parent reporting. This overall professionalism has resulted in my wife becoming relaxed (an achievement in itself), a son that has become reasonably self sufficient and improving in confidence and as a result achieving Silver in the UK Junior Mathematical Challenge.

What more could you ask?

David is an excellent teacher, and puts a lot of effort into every lesson, making sure every second is used to its fullest extent. He has helped me excel in both the BMO and the STEP, while making sure I truly understand the maths every step of the way.

I could not recommend David more. I found David two years ago and asked him to help with my son's JMC. My son loves his lessons so much and learns a lot from him. Only one year's learning my son achieved a gold medal in JMC! But before he followed David's learning, he can only get a bronze medal. Incredible achievement! Now my son starts his IMC learning and we are confident that he will get another gold medal. Besides his achievements in competition tests, my son forms great mathematical thinking in his school studying and he feels the math learning in his school is a piece of cake. Now he is in his school math studying set one and enjoys his math learning.

Further more, we asked David to help my daughter to prepare her SMC, MAT and STEP. We think David will lead our daughter to achieve outstanding performance.

Thanks again for the great help of David give us!

David has been very helpful in the UKMT challenges in general as he explains through the questions and introduces new problem solving techniques. He was able to help my son to get through the SMC and into

the Olympiad which David had also been teaching how to tackle. He guided us through his structured approach to preparation for these competitions referring us to the right books and material.

David is a great maths tutor. His explanations are immediately understandable and revealing, and are widely applicable in many BMO questions. His tutoring has halved the time it's taken me to solve olympiad problems, especially in geometry, and my solutions have become much more thorough and rigorous thanks to his tutoring. His method of going through past questions is also very complete: making sure the solutions are fully understood before going to the next question. He keeps the difficulty gradient shallow, but goes up it quickly, making his teaching efficient and effective, and making hard questions easier than they might seem at first. He's expanded my knowledge through his great tutoring, and there's many things I'd've not learned had he not taught me them.

"I was looking for a Math tutor for my son a couple of years back and I did a lot of research looking into various online websites. I tried with a couple of online tutors as well. But I was not quite as satisfied until I found David's profile. I must say I had to do a lot of searching before I came across David's profile but when I found his profile it felt just right. David has a vast experience in tutoring Mathematics at a very high standard at a relatively higher level. He has a proven track record in tutoring and mentoring the students for several years. He is very punctual. He always comes up with a plan and goes about it quite meticulously. My son has been taking lessons from David for the last couple of years and he is very excited and happy about it. I have found his lessons to be quite effective and going ahead my plan is to continue the lessons as long as David is available. I would highly recommend David to anyone who is aspiring to enhance their mathematical skills for any competitive exams like JMC, IMC or GCSE or admission to Oxbridge."
