Tolly has a very strong mathematical background, having studied Mathematics and Philosophy at The University of Oxford. This degree allows him to use his knowledge of the foundations of Mathematics to deepen his students’ understanding of the important concepts, and he particularly enjoys pushing students to develop their problem solving skills.
My approach is one of flexibility where I will adapt my methods to the needs of learners. Ultimately, the role of a tutor has to be to ensure learners develop problem-solving skills by understanding the approach needed and not simply answer questions with steams of knowledge and textbook facts.
