Personal Description:

I am a qualified teacher of Mathematics. I am offering tuition up to Advanced Higher level and including National 5.

Private tuition in your own home can be an effective way of taking your understanding of maths to the next level, and an investment in your future.

I have developed Edina Tuition so I could offer a dedicated, personal service to individuals who want to gain more confidence and skill in maths. My wish is to deliver contemporary maths tuition in Edinburgh and beyond. I teach up to SQA Advanced Higher.

I have a lifetime of fascination and passion for maths and I aim to inspire those I teach to, at best, enjoy the subject and, at least, to embrace it with more enthusiasm than before.

Tutoring Experience:

4 years teaching in all age schools in Scotland.

I have been offering private tuition for the last 4 years and have helped many tutees to obtain, or surpass, their target grades in SQA exams.

In addition I am a registered STEM Ambassador.

Tutoring Approach:

Tuition is one-to-one and given in the tutees own home.

I ask all tutees to aim high and consider obtaining A grade. My method is:

* working at mastery of C level skills (the SQA state that 65% of marks in Higher Maths are available at this level)

* promoting a growth mindset, and grit

* encouraging the use of common sense

* developing flexible thinking

* encouraging you to develop your number skills

In the last academic year (15 to 16) my First Tutor tutees obtained:

Higher -- 2 A
Advanced Higher -- C
