Hi there! My name’s Christian, and I guess you’re reading this because you have quite an interest in what I do here at Simply Maths Tutoring! I started working as a tutor because I’m obsessed with maths. Honestly, obsessed. Everything I do usually comes back to it. It’s a way of life for me. I can’t help but analyse and run calculations on everything I see. I’ve always had a fascination with how things work, and I love knowing more about the mechanics of, well, everything. Everything from building construction to physics to the design of this very website, I love knowing how things tick. And, usually, maths is the doorway to that knowledge. But there’s more to it than that. A simply fact that makes it so easy for me.
I think maths is beautiful.
Which sounds weird to most people, but the reality is it’s true. Everything about maths is beautifully structured and works to perfection. The simplicity and symmetry of it always catches me off guard. The ability to view a seemingly impossible problem and manipulate it from something utterly convoluted to something beautifully simple is something that I find incredibly rewarding. Not to mention the millions of examples in nature of pure mathematics and natural phenomena. This is the passion I work to pass on to students all around me. I would love nothing more than to show others this joy and wonder that lives in my eyes every day. And through tutoring, I can achieve that.
I’ve been at this for a while now…
I’ve been tutoring now for just under five years, in that time I have worked personally with well over fifty different students and have organised tutors for more than sixty others. For every single student, I am always working to find out what is going to work best for them. It might be a particular personality in a tutor, a certain teaching style, or simply a different approach or explanation.
My approach to tutoring
My approach is pretty simple. If someone doesn’t understand what I am teaching, it means that I need to change the way I teach it. So that’s what I do. I spend time working with all my students to figure out exactly what works best for them, and when I look for new tutors to join the team I make sure they’re able to do the same. There is always another way to show someone how with Maths, and every single student learns just a little bit differently. It makes for a bit of variety in teaching! I am constantly looking for (and finding) ways of teaching concepts that puts a new spin or twist on that hasn’t been heard before. It’s the best way to make sure my students are always learning, and helps me learn as well!
Teaching lets me learn too!

I’m continuing to work to spread my passion and interest in Maths, especially when I can see how the tools learnt in Maths can carry on throughout all aspects of life, whether you choose a career that involves Maths or not. The analytical problem-solving skills that I and countless others employ every day stem from the knowledge and practice of Maths. Without these skills, I never would have turned to teaching, opened a wonderful business that gives me the opportunity to work with dozens of students every week while loving what I do.
A mathematical approach opens eyes and doors
And I want to give that to everyone
