Personal Description:

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

Subjects offered:
SQA National 5 Mathematics
SQA Higher Mathematics
SQA Advanced Higher Mathematics

GCSE Mathematics
A Level Mathematics
IB SL/HL Mathematics

Private tuition in your own home 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 and beyond.

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

Unfortunately I do not cover Fife.

Tutoring Experience:

4 years teaching in all age schools in Scotland.

I have been offering private tuition for the last 6 years and have helped many tutees to obtain, or surpass, their target grades in SQA exams.

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 the spirit of mathematics

* encouraging the use of common sense

* developing flexible thinking

* encouraging you to develop your number skills

Ideally I am looking for tutees who feel that they could improve with some input, and who are willing to commit to steady work on their skills. Everybody can improve their maths skills, and thence their grades, with good tuition and personal effort.

In last academic year 2016 to 2017 my First Tutor tutees obtained:

Higher -- 2 A, 2 B, 1 C
Advanced Higher -- 1 C
A Level (Edexcel) -- 1 B
Nat 5 -- 1 A, 1 C

In the academic year 2015 to 2016 my First Tutor tutees obtained:

Higher -- 2 A
Advanced Higher -- 2 C
Nat 5 -- 1 B

Feedback 2017

Hi Gary, thought you may like to know. P got an ‘A’ and is delighted. Thank you for all your help you really made a huge difference .

We’ve got you number for J!



Hi Gary. Happy to say she got an A. Thanks for all your help and will be in touch around November time.


hi gary,

thank you for asking! I got a B in my exam (90/130), which was better than I expected. Thanks for all your help I don’t think I could have passed without it.

all the best,


Delighted to say she got a C! It’s a great result for her because she needed it to do Psychology at University. Thanks so much for the time you gave her, I think it really made a lot of difference even though it was only a few weeks – I think you really helped her to learn how to think through the questions so she could see what was being asked. If anyone asks me for tutor recommendations I will definitely pass on your name!

best wishes and thanks again,
