Alexander Coward's Classroom
Director of Studies
I mainly focus on helping students studying mathematics.
If you're a student of mathematics, wondering about a good place to start, I recommend the excellent short course Introduction to University Mathematics by Alan Lauder, and completing the two problem sets carefully. Try to understand every single sentence.
I spent most of my career as an academic mathematician, although in my heart I think of myself as a teacher. Now I'm the Founder and CEO of EDeeU, but I still think of myself more as a teacher than an entrepreneur. I have a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Oxford, and another Ph.D. in Education from Thai Nguyen University in Vietnam.
I grew up in London, spent 10 years at Oxford, and have also lived in Vietnam and Australia. Now I live in Berkeley, California, a place that somehow feels like home.
I like reading, playing the piano, and messing about in boats.
