Personal Description:

I'm a retired Further Education manager and tutor, specialising in Higher and Intermediate 2 Mathematics (now Nat 4 and Nat 5)
With a thorough knowledge of mathematics, I'm able to clarify ideas in a variety of ways. I communicate clearly and my enthusiasm helps motivate the student. Being approachable, honest and reliable I develop a rapport with students and can focus on filling in any learning gaps and overcoming obstacles.
I play tennis and practise Tai Chi . I cycle as a mode of transport and as a form of recreation and exercise. I read a variety o**Contact Detail Removed**s and am a member of a book group, listen to jazz and blues music, tackle crosswords and regularly take part in pub quizzes.

Tutoring Experience:

Throughout my career I've been involved in teaching and supporting a variety of learners including adults returning to education; those taking a second chance; school students; those in employment; international students and students aiming for university.
I've provided help and guidance to groups and individuals preparing for assessments and exams and next stages. I've coached teenagers in Higher Maths and younger students in primary and secondary maths

Tutoring Approach:

As an experienced tutor, I explain complex concepts in easy-to-understand terms. I identify and build on students’ strengths and help them grow more confident in their studies. We review and evaluate as we progress. Together we develop plans of action based on individual needs, ensuring all relevant topics are covered. This will involve us working through typical assessment and exam questions.
