Tutoring Experience

I taught A-level Mathematics at Verulam School in St Albans and A-level, Access and GCSE mathematics at West Herts College in Watford from 1996 until taking redundancy. I was also course tutor and teacher of mathematics, statistics and quantitative techniques on various H.E. programmes of the University of Hertfordshire based at the college.

Tutoring Approach

I have a sympathetic yet challenging approach, helping weaker students at point of need but also engaging with the abler ones. Feedback and success rates tell me I am a good tutor
