Hi, everyone! I'm Ellis, a second-year student studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Portsmouth. If your looking for a friendly, yet highly motivating person to help you achieve your goals within the field on Mathematics then i'm your guy! Whether it be to help you reach that elusive grade C or to push yourself for the A* I can help.
I studied Mathematics at Portsmouth College and achieved an A* at A-Level, a long with C's in both Further Mathematics and Physics. I was also involved in a mentoring programme, whilst studying, to help first years who were struggling with AS-Level mathematics.
I am currently working as a Junior Project Manager on a placement year as part of my degree. I am very flexible throughout the week in the evenings as well as during the weekends.
I look forward to hopefully meeting you!
Very friendly. Prompt to arrive.
Lots of work covered in 2 lessons.
Overall very happy.
I needed help with A Level maths as well as maths on my engineering course. Ellis provides reassurance and calm whilst allowing you to use what you have grasped of a topic, before adding or tweaking your technique. He has a way of understanding exactly where you are struggling and is able to explain, how, why and best way to approach a question leaving you enlightened and empowered to succeed.
Very pleasant man, put my daughter at ease the moment he walked through the door and has helped her understand what her school teachers couldn't. We wouldn't hesitate to use Ellis again or recommend him to anyone else who needs his help.
Ellis has made a big difference to my son's math understanding. He is able to look at things from the other persons view and help them to view the bigger picture. My son has gained a lot more confidence in the areas that he and Ellis have worked on. I would thoroughly recommend Ellis for A Level math. Simon
My Son really enjoys his lessons with Ellis and feels they are making a difference
Ellis has given my son 3 sessions so far. Bearing in mind, this wasn't something my son was too keen on and took some convincing. He now agrees this is the best decision he made. In only 3 lessons, Ellis has given him confidence and the "want" to do well in his Maths exam. If this pattern continues I am confident he will do well. I am more than happy with Ellis he has already made a difference! Ellis has been reliable and always on time.
Ellis is making good steady progress with my son . It helps the fact that they are comfortable in each other's company making it easier to listen and learn. My son has learnt quite slot already and I would recommend Ellis .
Harry has only had 2 lessons so far but already feeling he is benefitting . I'm glad I took the plunge and have found him a maths tutor that will hopefully help him get through. Very impressed so far!
