I am a graduate chemist with a passion for all things Mathematical and Scientific which I hope transmits itself to my tutees. Living in Glossop I have a love of the great outdoors and have come to enjoy rainy days on the hills when I am not teaching. I also make bespoke furniture so if anybody out there is looking for hand-crafted oak furniture I have practical skills to match my academic.
I am an ex-deputy headteacher with 30 years of teaching experience at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 (11-18) in state schools
I have taught Mathematics and various combinations of the Science subjects throughout my career. I was an examiner/moderator for Science for a number of years so I have a thorough understanding of examination techniques and what an examiner is looking for.
I tailor my tuition to the needs and expectations of my students.
I like to build confidence in my students. We all learn by practicing skills and "doing". The key to good teaching is providing lots of opportunity to develop ideas in a non-threatening environment and then giving quality feed-back with lots of next steps.
I always try to furnish my students with as wide a range of learning opportunities as possible.
