I am a retired ex Head of Mathematics and ex Deputy Headteacher but with a passion for Mathematics and helping students.
I taught Mathematics across the age and ability range from Year 7 to Year 13 from 1966 to 2000, when I took early retirement. I taught O level; GCSE; A level Pure Mathematics and A level Applied Mathematics (Mechanics). I cannot offer A level Statistics.
I also have vast examination experience: In the past I was a Principal Examiner at O level from 1989 to 1995 for the now extinct SEG (Southern Examining Group) writing and administrating Exam papers three times a year; I was also a Team Leader and then Senior Examiner for the Key Stage 3 Exam; and a Senior Examiner for the Level 6 Single level tests;
I currently mark at A level Pure Mathematics both for Cambridge International Exams Syndicate where I mark scripts from all over the world and for OCR Home Centres.
I have also just finished writing seven Chapters as part of the Authoring Team with the O.U.P. for the new A level Specification text books in Mathematics and Further Mathematics which commenced this September. I also wrote a GCSE textbook in the mid 1990s and was a contributor to two other sets of books since then, one at KS3 level and one at GCSE.
I also proofread Maths Textbooks and do Answer Checks for other Authors' books.
I also wrote a diagnostic set of revision examination questions in 2006 - 2007 for a private education system in India
I have vast experience of teaching and examining so I am very well placed to help students with their problems understanding Mathematics.
I am patient and easy to get on with and explain my subject knowledge very clearly and concisely. I don't mind how many times I have to repeat something or explain it in different ways until the student understands what I am teaching. being an examiner I know exactly what exam boards want and can thus help students maximise their exam grade potential.
