Information About Ed - Wallington tutor - (16 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Ed:
I am a qualified Maths teacher currently lecturing in GCSE Maths and Aeronautical Engineering, with degrees in both Aerospace Engineering and Teaching.
Tutees tend to fall into the following 3 categories:
- needing advanced help to reach full potential and achieve grade 7/8/9,
- predicted a borderline pass or fail at school and needing help to secure a pass,
- failed at first attempt and needing assistance with retake.
I have a proven track record with all of the above, and have a huge stock of examining body approved resources and worksheets specific to individual topics in the syllabus.
My teaching experience consists of many years spent teaching Maths as a college lecturer and personal tutor.

Grade 4 (Foundation Paper)
My usual approach for preparing a student to score as highly as possible in GCSE exams is to work together in attempting past paper after past paper. Doing this not only gets the student very familiar and experienced with what to expect in the exam, but also flags up areas of weakness. These areas are then worked on specifically until full competence is shown. This means a typical lesson is made up of half general past paper, and half specific topic.
Being a current serving GCSE Maths teacher, I have a wealth of up to date resources and curriculum/exam knowledge allowing me to focus tuition on exactly what is required to maximise results.

My son was very happy with his tutoring style, and lessons have helped him get a more accurate understanding of Maths.
He was very reliable and always on time. Highly recommended!
Ed was especially helpful in structuring lessons and focusing on areas of weakness - boosting my confidence greatly. Thank you. — Blue
