I have lived in the Virginia Water area for over 20 years and have 2 sons who are now at university. My undergraduate degree was in maths at Aston University and I studied for a PhD at Reading University. Since leaving university I formed and run a computer company for 27 years and have since formed and run 2 successful businesses as Managing Director. I now run my current business on a part-time basis.

Tutoring Experience

I lectured mathematics at Reading University to undergraduates and have tutored many A-level students. I surprisingly managed to tutor both my sons for their A-level exams and managed to raise their predicted grades in all modules.

Tutoring Approach

I like to work with the knowledge students have on a subject and then build from there. With maths it is at times necessary to re-visit the fundamentals - these can be forgotten as time passes. I have a wealth of information sheets and tips covering the various topics on the syllabus and make use of past papers to prepare students for their exams. I like to discover a students strengths and weaknesses early on and believe my experience helps me with that.

I consider myself calm, patient and supportive with students. Lessons are structured to and tailored to meet the student's needs and include a variety of hands on material and varied learning styles.
