Information About Brian - Farnborough tutor - (6 reviews)
This is how 3 referees rated Brian:
I am a professional, full-time Mathematics tutor. My aim is to improve students understanding of, and appreciation for, Mathematics and hence maximize their Mathematical abilities, achieve the best exam grades that they can, and provide skills that will last forever.
Whilst working as an IT professional I tutored my grandchildren and some of their friends in Level 3 (A Level) and Level 2 Maths qualifications (GCSE, and Functional Skills). In 2014 I decided to change career, go back to a subject that I enjoy, and to teach Mathematics full time. My range includes GCSE, A level, Functional Skills maths, 11+, and 13+.
I prefer to teach face to face, but I am happy to also provide tuition remotely to individuals or face to face to small groups. My aim is to improve students understanding of, and appreciation for, Mathematics and hence maximize their Mathematical abilities, achieve the best exam grades that they can, and provide skills that will last a lifetime. I believe that Mathematical understanding comes through practice so I place an emphasis on students solving mathematical problems.

I would happily recommend Brian to any parent looking to help their child make sense of Maths and to focus on the right areas.
His patience seemingly knows no limits and he has a very calm, methodical approach to tutoring.
All forms of communication have been excellent, with progress reports, setting & quickly marking of 'homework' along with the discussions about what has been taught in each session and what areas need to be worked on.
If anyone is looking for a Maths tutor, then we cannot recommend Brian highly enough.
(Fingers crossed for the GCSE result)
He has been nothing short of a miracle worker with our son in preparation for his GCSE Mathematics exams.
Punctuality and time keeping are excellent and Brian is not a clock watcher; he often stays a little longer than the allotted time and he ALWAYS gives my partner and I a "debrief" on our son's progress at the end of each session.
We email with Brian and he has supplied numerous past papers for our son to practice on. Through Brian's tuition and the practice exams, we have been able to identify areas of weakness and concern and they have been systematically addressed and for the most part rectified.
When Brian joined us, our son has failed his Christmas mocks and was experiencing mental "blocks" with certain aspects of the syllabus, having scored only 85/175.
Working with Brian - who takes the past papers away to mark and then emails the scores back - we have seen, on the last paper, this mark increase **Telephone Number Removed** A clear "pass".
We cannot recommend Brian highly enough for his one-on-one tuition skills and his support in the form of feedback etc. It was especially important to us that our son and Brian “hit it off” as our son is on the Autistic spectrum and is often uneasy with meeting new people, but Brian put him – and us – at ease from the outset.
Our son sits his exams in May and June 2016 and we have every confidence that he will, with Brian's help and encouragement, gain the pass he has worked so hard to achieve.
If you’re looking for a GCES Maths tutor, we cannot recommend Brian highly enough.
