Personal Description:

Recently retired from full-time teaching, I was Head of Department of Information Technology at secondary level and have over 30 years experience of IT and Computing teaching.I have had a great deal of success at teaching at GCSE level and A level and have seen several of my pupils achieve the very top results in the country. I am now available for private tutoring in all ICT/Computing subjects, Maths to GCSE and preparation for 11+ and school entrance exams. I am married with three grown up children.

Tutoring Experience:

I have had three pupils achieve “top five” status (ie top five individual pupils, not merely top 5%) in the country at GCSE level – two for ICT and one for BCS(Business Communication Systems). A very large majority of my pupils at GCSE level – in ICT and BCS – have achieved grade A or A* – this from pupils of mixed abilities. Similarly a very large majority of my pupils at A-level Computing have gained grade A or B. Of my A-level pupils who have gone on to study Computing and related subjects at university, many have gained first class honours and some have been awarded “best in year” and “best overall” prizes at UCL and Imperial College. During the last two years, as well as doing A level teaching in school, I have been providing private tuition to adults. I have also helped a number of individual pupils who were struggling with Maths and a number of primary children to gain a place at the secondary school of their choice.

Tutoring Approach:

I have the ability to communicate effectively to pupils of all abilities. I make a point of ensuring that pupils always have the understanding they need, and will keep working at a problem, tackling it in different ways as necessary, until I know that they have grasped it. Having worked in the IT industry before coming to teaching I am a very capable programmer, and so am able to teach this skill from a background of experience which many teachers – at least when I first set out in teaching – did not have.
