UCD Maths Support Centre

Kevin Sewell

Hi, my name is Kevin and I have just finished my Masters in Mathematical Science here in UCD, having done a degree in theoretical physics in Trinity. I conducted a thesis centred on the Maths Support Centre, so I know what is required from the student and the tutor to constitute an effective learning experience. I have loads of experience teaching maths, applied maths and physics at leaving cert (and junior cert) level. Although everyone has different abilities, I believe that everybody can improve at maths, provided they have the right attitude and work ethic. One key is to talk to the tutor, let them know what you know, what you don’t know and what you want to know. My areas of study are mainly applied mathematics, having done mostly ACM modules in my Masters. I’m happy to help as best as I can anybody doing an ACM module or a MATH module that is not beyond what I’ve studied in my 5 years of 3rd level education.

Kevin can help you with the following software packages: Mathematica and Latex.
