Brian

Sevenoaks Tutor

I am a graduate teacher and I have been running a small business for the last 15 years providing work based assessment and training for people with disabilities. We also supply some specialist hardware and software. Prior to running the business, I taught in secondary schools and specialist further education and have provided private tuition for almost 20 years.

Tutoring Experience

Completed a City & Guilds Computer programming course and later attained a B.Ed in secondary education. I taught Maths and IT at secondary level and then moved into specialist further education teaching maths and IT to GCSE level and also NVQ/GNVQ Business Admin. For the past 18 years running a small business providing work-based training in the use of computer packages such as voice recognition software.
I have experience of teaching 11+ and Common Entrance subjects - Maths, English, verbal and non-verbal reasoning, GCSE and IGCSE Maths, GCSE IT/Computing and AS Level Computing.

Tutoring Approach

Having had a very negative experience of maths teaching when I was a pupil at school, I approach teaching in the way I would have liked to have been taught myself. I have a great deal of patience and have always had a good rapport with pupils and students. I believe that anyone can learn maths if they have the right teacher and it is put across in the right way. I believe teaching should be broad-based and should be an enjoyable experience and dare I say even fun sometimes.
