    My name is Fred Curtis. I tutor undergraduate maths at the University of Sydney.

    I'm visiting Edinburgh for the next week or so and am interested
    in offering FREE help to any undergrad students studying for exams.
    (This means I can get out of visiting IKEA and clothing stores with
    my wife and mother-in-law who are also visiting!)

    The areas I can help in are Linear Algebra, Discrete maths, logic,
    Calculus (incl.

    introductory differential equations & modelling), and bits of vector
    calculus, number theory, topology (at least elementary surfaces and
    simple knot theory). I also have a background in computer science.

    My temporary mobile in the UK is 07999 414765. I'm staying within
    walking distance of Edinburgh University main campus and would
    prefer to help students at cafes/libraries around that area.

    If anyone can suggest a good way of getting in touch with students
    (especially first year maths students), I'd be grateful! At Sydney
    I do pro-bono work by wandering around library study areas looking
    for students surrounded by equations at exam time :-)


    Hey, just giving this thread a bump :bump: Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific university or course forum should help you get more responses. :yy:

    If you haven’t already found it, then university connect is a really useful way for finding people at your course/university! You can also find a list of applicant threads and courses here.
How are you feeling about your exams?
