Personal Description:

Hi I'm David, an experienced maths tutor offering a professional tutoring service to students from primary to university level.

I grew up in Suffolk, and went through the primary, middle, and high school system here. After completing my GCSEs and A-levels, I worked at a local pet food company for a few years, before moving to Nottingham University to train as a civil engineer. I graduated with a degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering awarded with first class (Hons), before moving on to specialise in fluid mechanics at postgraduate level.

Tutoring Experience:

I began teaching maths on a one-to-one basis seven years ago, in which time I have worked with students from ages 8 to 34 years old, across all the main examining bodies (AQA, Edexcel, OCR, OCR-MEI and CIE).

My first one-to-one teaching role began in September 2010, working for Nottingham council, as part of their outreach programme to assist students who were struggling at school. Our team was tasked to provide after school lessons in English, Maths and Science, to help reaffirm what was being taught in school. Being through the council authority, I held a full enhanced CRB check for the duration of this position, which sadly ended when I moved away from Nottingham in July 2013.

More recently, since returning to Suffolk I have been working independently, and began advertising with FirstTutors in October 2014. Feedback from the students I have worked with during this time can be found below. Presently, I'm working with students from Northgate High School, St. Albans Catholic High School, Stowmarket High School, Thurston Community College and University Campus Suffolk. These include:
– KS2 & KS3 students, covering fundamental topics in preparation for GCSE.
– GCSE students, covering foundation and higher level material, for the new 1-9 syllabus.
– A-level students, covering the new syllabus.
– University students, covering Fourier Series, Laplace Transforms, ODEs, PDEs, Matrices, Complex Numbers, etc.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim will always be to build your confidence in maths. I personally used to dread being asked questions in school, and so my lessons are designed so that you never feel like that. The work that we do will utilise us practising questions together, and talking about anything that is difficult.

I consider myself to be very diligent, and across a suitable run of lessons I will ensure all topics are covered in depth. I will always come to lessons well prepared, and with plenty of resources to pass on. When we reach the point of preparing for exams, I have hundreds of past exam questions for us to practise with.
