I am a nationally renowned expert in mathematics education - speaking at all major maths education conferences in Scotland and many others across the UK. Until December 2018 I was Principal Teacher of Maths in a high performing school in the west of Scotland. Currently, in addition to tutoring commitments I am delivering training to maths teachers across Scotland. I am also an SQA examiner. I am willing to travel within the Glasgow area for tuition purposes. I am an enthusiastic teacher who has had excellent results from both my class teaching and from tutoring students on a one-to-one basis. I have a BSc (Hons) in Maths and Computing Science from the University of Glasgow.
I have been tutoring/teaching for 14 years and have had continually good results. I have taught Advanced Higher, Higher, National 5, National 4 and other levels. I am actively involved in the preparation of pupils for the new National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher exams. I have experience of tutoring students in their own home.
I like to put the student at ease with a friendly, approachable, although business like manner. I like to match my teaching with the needs and learning style of the student. I provide lots of past and sample exam papers, worksheets, resources and various powerpoints for the student to study in his/her own time between session.
