Personal Description:

I have been a Teacher of Mathematics for over twenty years. Unfortunately, my health has deteriorated in the last 24 months, and as a result of this, I have retired from teaching on ill-health grounds. I have successfully helped students through one-to-one tuition in the past, but now that my circumstances have changed (I no longer have a full-time teaching responsibility), I am very much in a position where I can now commit fully to offering maths tuition in Braintree and the surrounding area. I am currently assessing A-level maths (Core content) for both Pearson (Edexcel) and OCR, in addition to a recent appoinment as examiner for AQA (Decision Maths)…

Tutoring Experience:

After training in 1993-94, I started teaching as a Teacher of Mathematics and Science for a couple of years before being promoted to Key Stage 3 Coordinator in Mathematics at an 11-16 grant-maintained school in Norfolk. In 1998, I then moved to Braintree, and took on a role as a full-time Teacher of Mathematics in a school in Witham. In 2001, I then took on a broader role at a large 11-18 comprehensive in Colchester (Philip Morant School). Since 2005, I have been Key Stage 5 Coordinator in Mathematics at this school, and I have developed resources and teaching strategies across the faculty, as well as creating new courses for post-16 students (including those that do not want to study conventional A-levels in Mathematics).
I have considerable experience of preparing students for assessments (working as an examiner for the exam boards helps to this end), and I am able to support learning across the ability range. I am especially experienced in delivering the Mathematics curriculum at Higher GCSE level, including GCSE Statistics and GCSE Further Maths, and I am confident with the delivery of all elements of the CORE content of A-level Maths.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very flexible in terms of what style of tutoring is required. If you merely want a short-term boost prior to exams, or a longer period of tuition to support and complement the learning that takes place at school, I can help you to improve your skill base and boost your confidence in Mathematics. If A-level is your thing, then it may interest you to know that I have recent experience (June 2015) as an Assessment Specialist for OCR (MEI). Regardless of what your needs may be, I always try to ensure that students enjoy learning Mathematics, and I try to instil my enthusiasm and passion for the subject into any discussion that takes place, in the hope that some of it will inspire the students in my care to embrace Mathematics.
