Hull Tutor

I have been a maths tutor for 5 years. Prior to that I was an accountant working in industry for 15 years, managing the company's money across many European countries and using maths on a daily practical basis. I have also volunteered for the Citizens Advice Bureau and other organisations, and recently was the tutor to a young actor working on an ITV comedy programme set in Spain. I encourage my students to believe in themselves, and get the results their hard work deserves.

Tutoring Experience

I am a tutor working at a girls' secondary school in Hull since February 2014, tutoring maths one to one or one to two for years 8, 10 and 11 as required. I also tutored at another Hull school in the 2013/14 academic year.
I was the tutor for a young actor working on an ITV comedy set in Spain in 2013 and 2014.
I tutor privately for maths GCSE, and have also worked one to one with learners in Adult education.
I have been trained by Paul Carson, author of Naked Numbers, and a tutor with 14 years experience and a 95% success rate at GCSE / A level.

Tutoring Approach

I have a patient approach, and will start with the basics of multiplication and division. From the student's point of view, it is all about increasing confidence in your ability. I will explain easier ways to do things that aren't always taught in schools, such as the three step multiplication method with no working. I like the student to fully understand a topic, so that they can cope with variations in questions and still be able to answer them correctly.
