Personal Description:

After twenty years teaching experience, latterly as Head of Department, I have now tutored over five-hundred private pupils in maths and physics, 95% of whom have gained the grades they needed. Recently I published two maths tuition books "Maths? Don't Panic!" covering the key stage 3 syllabus. I would like to help younger pupils to gain a good grounding in mathematics.

Tutoring Experience:

My experience includes: teaching maths to day-release apprentices, reading to slow learners, physics and chemistry in several comprehensive and private schools, and teaching a University Physics course. I was appointed as Head of Physics at 's Hospital, a girls' public school. I then became Head of Science, with a Department of five, in a comprehensive school, where the Headmaster hoped to start a sixth form. Later I returned to industry for a time as Head of Mathematical Modelling. Subsequently I formed my own company to write Educational Software.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer tuition in maths and sciences to primary, and secondary school pupils. My pupils appreciate that I am always careful to explain the logical connections between mathematical and scientific topics, something which is not always done in schools. Most of my ex-pupils have gained good University Places some at Oxford and Cambridge. One University Professor told me he was always glad to accept my pupils because they had a good grounding in mathematics and Physics.
