Whilst the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic is underway I am offering a sliding scale of payments. If you have been adversely affected by the financial ramifications of corona virus then you may elect to pay me any amount between £30 per hour to my current rate of £40 per hour. Please just let me know.

2020 results 4A, 4B, 3C passes. I always stress the importance of doing well in the prelim exams.

I am a qualified teacher of Mathematics based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I am offering tuition up to Advanced Higher level and beyond, delivered 1-2-1 online or in your own home.

Subjects offered: SQA exams up to and including:
SQA Higher Mathematics
SQA Advanced Higher Mathematics
SQA Advanced Higher Statistics


AS/A level -- Edexcel

1-2-1 tuition can be an effective way of taking your understanding of maths to the next level, and should be seen as an investment in your future.

It is therefore my aim to offer a dedicated service to people who want to gain more confidence and skill in maths. I strive to deliver contemporary maths tuition up to SQA Advanced Higher, A level and beyond. I specialise in SQA Higher/Advanced Higher and A Level.

I like maths and I try to pass on an appreciation for it to the people that I am giving tuition to.

I am available during the day.

In addition to having worked in education I have also been employed in software engineering.

Tutoring Experience

4 years teaching in all age schools in Scotland.

I have been offering private tuition for the last 8 years and have helped many tutees to obtain, or surpass, their target grades in SQA and A level exams.

Tutoring Approach

Tuition is one-to-one and given online. The first session is free to test that online will work for you. I use Explain Everything as an online whiteboard, Zoom for audio/video, Desmos as an online graphical calculator.

At Higher grade I specifically offer:

-- a weekly, one hour tutorial concentrating on topics/questions on which the tutee wishes to focus

-- help in consolidating skills learned in N5 maths which are the basis of strong ‘C’ grade skills (65% of marks in the Higher Mathematics exam are ‘C’ grade according to SQA)

-- special focus on helping tutees to understand calculus (just under 25% of marks in the SQA H Maths exam)

-- taking a non-judgemental approach, I aim to offer encouragement and support to tutees in their efforts in doing well in their Higher Maths exam

I particulary welcome enquiries from potential SQA Higher tutees aiming to get an 'A' at Higher and Advanced Higher.

Some of my Advanced Higher tutees from previous years have gone on to study mathematics, music, engineering, economics, and medicine.

However I am equally pleased to help anyone (outside of school) with improving their understanding of maths, or with improving their numeracy, whatever their level, and whatever their goal.

NB tuition is offered on a weekly basis, I do not offer tuition on a fortnightly basis.

Online tuition works best when you are prepared to take responsibility for your learning and when you are prepared to lead the session with your own input.

And please consider this: I have had two Russian tutees in the recent past, and was told by the head of the Russian community in Edinburgh that even in Soviet Russia people would hire mathematics tutors, people simply wanted to get better at maths!
