Dr. Auld is an experienced mathematics teacher and lecturer, specializing in STEP (Oxbridge entrance) paper tuition. She runs classes in STEP and also teaches the MAT exam, Probability and Statistics, and Degree level maths, inspiring students to solve challenging maths problems and offering help with exam technique, and also Interview help. She has top exam results to date, and references and case studies are available on request.
Private STEP and degree level Tuition available in London and online.
Dr Auld's teaching methods for STEP are based on encouraging students to work through problems both with her and alone, and to analyze the thought processes involved in solving them.
Central London is convenient for most people,
and students often travel across England for this tuition.
Dr Auld also tutors students online using (video) SKYPE and Messenger, including STEP students from Malaysia, Dubai, Switzerland and The U.S.A.
October half-term: 4-day Introduction STEP Course

Three-hour Algebra and Number theory Lecture, with two-hour follow-up class
Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th October, at David Game College in Aldgate ( www.davidgamecollege.com)
useful for the MAT exam and interview
held at David Game college in Aldgate (close to Aldgate tube, in the City of London), on Saturday 28th October, from 13:00 - 16:30.
plus a follow-up class on Sunday 29th, from 14.00 - 16.00.
This lecture will be useful for the MAT exam and also covers some interview-style questions.
It will include:
the importance of prime numbers in building up the set of Natural
numbers, from Euclid's Unique Prime Factorisation,
some Proof by contradiction, including Euclid's proof of an Infinity of
Primes, as well as 'Square root (2) is irrational', and what is really making
this proof work, and hence how it can be extended to other algebraic
irrationals, which also leads to important Number theory techniques that
are tested in STEP, MAT and a lot at Interview.
The lecture will also cover some theory of Polynomials, including a thorough analysis of
cubic curves and multiple roots, underlying 'Function' theory,
including understanding how applying many-to-one functions can affect
equations and inequalities, plus related understanding and techniques,
that are somewhat hidden but all over STEP maths and the MAT.
There will also be some interview-style questions where algebraic factorisation is used
to solve some number theory problems.
