Maths A-Level Easter Revision Classes OLD

During the courses students will have the chance to go over the topics of each module, practice exam questions and improve their exam technique. These courses are designed for the new maths specification, they cover all the required topics for Maths A-level which is the same across all exam boards. However, as the majority of the attendees are sitting the Edexcel exam our tutors will be using Edexcel past-paper questions throughout.

Tutor: Matt Lukacs

After graduating from the University of York with a First-class MPhys in Theoretical Physics in 2016, Matt joined the accountancy firm KPMG to begin a career in finance. He had a change of heart and decided to study for his PhD in nuclear fusion at Imperial College London, investigating the safety analysis of commercial fusion power stations.

Matt headed various seminars during his time at university and volunteered at weekly sessions to help younger students tackle weekly problems. Matt believes that anyone can solve complex problems if they’re explained in the right way. His passion for the subjects he teaches can be seen in his approach to lessons, not simply repeating facts but allowing a deeper understanding and hopefully enjoyment of the subjects.

Tutor: Ryan Reavette

After graduating from the University of York in 2015 with a First Class MMath degree in Mathematics and Physics, Ryan worked for Applied Intelligence; the technology consulting arm of BAE Systems. He returned to academia in 2017 to begin his PhD, working towards a non-invasive means of diagnosing heart failure through analysing arterial haemodynamics. 
 
Ryan has several years’ experience in the one-to-one tuition of student of all ages in a range of exams, leading group courses, and teaching classes of undergraduates at Imperial College. He is incredibly passionate about education, and believes the key to success is to develop not only a comprehensive subject knowledge, but also the confidence the tackle complex problems independently.
