    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. 

    These include:
    • Spotting A-level techniques (often hidden by the STEP question's complexity);
    • Seeing links and clues within the question;
    • Lateral thinking - trying to find unusual or different ways to approach a question.

    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.

    STEP Lectures and Courses Offered:

    Please note that STEP maths is different from school maths. If you cannot already answer STEP questions, the lectures and courses may be too difficult for you to follow. If you are unsure, please request some material from me to look at or book a private session.

  • 2018 STEP Courses to cover all STEP II and III material

  • STEP Lectures to be held at David Game College in Aldgate, www.davidgamecollege.com (close to Aldgate tube, in the City of London).

  • Algebra and Number theory Lecture (2.5 hours), plus 2 hour follow-up class
    at David Game College in Aldgate, www.davidgamecollege.com (close to Aldgate tube, in the City of London)

    Saturday 27th January 2018, from 14:00 - 17:00.
    plus a follow-up class on Sunday 28th January 2018, from 14.00 - 16.00.

    The Lecture 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 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 mathematics.

    The length of the lecture is 2.5 hours, with a 30 minute break, running from 14.00 until 17.00, and the cost is £ 60.
    The follow-up class is to cover any questions arising from the lecture, and costs an extra £40 to attend.
