I am a 23-year-old student who has been tutoring privately for more than seven years. I specialise on maths, but I have taught most academic subjects with exception of arts.


I need to know my students. Therefore, I prefer to have a chat before the first lesson (free of charge) to figure out what is required, expected, what methods work, etc. I am very patient (everyone learns at a different pace) and I explain concepts as simply as possible with a lot of examples, analogies and visualisation to make the subject as approachable as possible. I regularly check if students understood what I said by CCQs and little tests. I use a lot of technology because it is indispensable in this century and it helps to speed up learning.


I usually work with students on the long-term basis. We diagnose a problem (if there is any), set up a goal, clarify check points, explain good studying habits, go through the material, drills, homework and mock tests, talk about exams (anxiety and peer pressure) and their future career. However, I have also done a few short-term projects such as final preparation for the A-level tests, linear algebra and discrete maths tests and essay proofreading.


Please feel free to ask me any questions. I love working with young people and answering questions like: Why is this useful? Why should I learn this? What? I'll never use this in real life...
I'll do my best to accommodate your needs/dreams in my schedule with all other of my students....

Thank you for reading of my profile

Ondrej is an excellent tutor for higher maths. He is always prepared for the lesson goes through every aspect of the higher maths course. He is very good at explaining things. He made me more confident by doing a lot of past paper questions so that I know how to tackle certain questions. He always has a very clear and concise explanations. He first explains the course throughly and helps me do similar exam type questions for the chapter we learned. He is very motivating and has a great method for teaching. I would definitely recommend Ondrej as higher maths tutor.

We engaged Ondrej a few week prior to the Scottish Higher maths exam. With extraordinary patience Ondrej engaged with our son to identify knowledge gaps and to design an appropriate study plan. Close coaching and mentoring resulted in our son approaching the exam so much more relaxed, knowledgable and confident in his grasp of the subject matter.

Ondrej is clearly on top of his game academically, a natural teacher able to convey complexity in understandable form. He understands too the necessity of coaching his pupil in effective examination techniques and timing. We recommend Ondrej wholeheartedly.

Ondrej is an excellent maths tutor. Reliable and willing to go extra mile -- spending extra time to complete the past papers with my daughter even though the session has ended. He didn't even charge extra. I appreciate his hard work in tutoring my daughter in aiming for a Grade "A".

Ondrej has been really helpful with maths courses and also with planning my revision . He prepared for me a detailed program and included a list of past papers to go practise my exams technics. I will highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about exams preparation and need some help with planning reviews.

Ondrej is an excellent tutor who is very knowledgeable and conveys his knowledge of complex material in a manner easily understandable. He is very good in expanding and explaining points that are harder to understood. He has also helped my daughter to steer away from her dependence on a calculator and have more confidence in doing her calculations by hand. Highly recommended.

I contacted Ondrej for my son who was struggling with higher Maths, Ondrej replied straight away and arranged a lesson. My son and I are most impressed with Ondrej, is a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable young man who my so clicked with straight away. He is very patient and has a great way of explaining Maths. He sent notes with detailed explanations and has since organised a schedule which my son has been sticking to and noticing the difference. I would highly recommend Ondrej to anyone as he has a great method for teaching and wants his student to succeed.

I was having difficulties with my Economics at University, so I decided to take the plunge and look for a personal tutor. I contacted Ondrej who was an amazing tutor. He went through my lectures and tutorials with me and explained them to me in simple terms. He also spent time taking me through examples of the areas that I was having difficulty with.

I would recommend Ondrej to any student needing a personal tutor.

Very helpful and informative 1 hour sessions which took place in the UoA library. Together we have been working on essay skills for my third year Economics as well as reviewing previous coursework.

Ondrej helped me to ace my Masters statistics course in a very short period of time. I got an A and would highly recommend his services.

I have never used a private tutor before and after working on Math's on my own and decided to bite the bullet and pay for private tuttion. I messaged Ondrej and he me messaged me back. I wrote an email to explain my frustration at Maths

He replied to messages and then I asked if I could call him, we chatted about what he could provide for me, I told him that I was nervous about paying private and he said that is a natural concern, he was very friendly, understanding and polite

He came to my house and we chatted, He made his own examples and I felt that I didn't quite understand the lesson, This was not down to Ondrej more my understanding of maths but he provided an insight and breakdown that I could comprehend

He sent me the notes with detailed explanations, I explained my visual learning and the next time he came up, again he was early writing out handwritten notes on the subject. He changed his style to accommodate my needs and left homework for me to work on,

I really like Ondrej as a person and his teaching style, he listens to me and makes me understand maths in a way I have never seen until his teaching, I would highly recommend him

I booked a block session and have over 15 lessons pre-booked that he again emailed me with a complete break down of the subject matter and all the dates,

Thanks
