I'm Director of Maths at the Sir Isaac Newton Sixth Form where I really enjoy teaching A level maths. I run my own maths website RemovedRemoved. As well as mathematics I'm also really passionate about space-science.
I've been teaching high school and A level maths since 2001 (that's 17 years experience). I'm particularly knowledgeable about the AQA & OCR A level exam boards, as we use these at my school, and am familiar with the others too (MEI, Edexcel).
I'm happy teaching A level Further Maths and completed the Further Maths Support Program 'Teaching Further Maths' course in 2013.
I lead on Mathematics Post-16 projects in our area for the Norfolk & Suffolk Maths Hub. I currently lead the teacher's A level network meetings in Norfolk which have become the 'one-stop-shop' for all things mathematics Post-16 (i.e. leading teachers on every aspect of maths education beyond GCSE) and support on managing our Maths Hub Use of Tech project for teachers.
For several years I was the ESERO (European Space Education Resource Office) Ambassador for the Eastern region, which ended upon completion of the Tim Peake Primary Project. In this role I regularly supported primary schools as well as speaking about space education for high school students and teachers nationwide.
I'm happy to help in whichever way suits you best; from explaining difficult concepts first or second time around to working through exam questions and checking markschemes to ensure that you get all mark possible.
I'm confident and proficient in using all standard maths software to help understand difficult topics easily, including Autograph, Excel, Geogebra, Wolfram Alpha, Integral and the many other maths education websites (including my own!).
