Private Maths and Physics Tutor in Norwich

I offer tuition in Maths, Further Maths and Physics which combines a thorough academic approach with a perspective on real-world applications to help in understanding and remembering concepts. I enjoy working with a range of students: from those who struggle with a subject and are just seeking to pass, to high-flyers targeting top grades; and from those just starting out at secondary level, to mature students returning to a subject after a several years break to advance or change their careers.

I’m a Chartered Engineer, and spent many years at world-leading high-tech consultancies combining maths, science and problem solving - the last of which now features prominently in the new style A Levels and GCSEs and is perhaps the most challenging aspect of them. I often had to present complex technical concepts to non-technical people so it was important to explain difficult ideas in an understandable way that didn’t trivialise the underlying ideas.

Tutoring Experience

I first tutored one-to-one over ten years ago, and have since taught hundreds of students of a wide range of ages and at various levels (GCSE, A Level, HNC/HND and the QTS Professional Skills Test). I've also given seminars and lectures at Universities (Brunel & UEA) to undergraduate and post-graduate students.

Tutoring Approach

I believe that with the right tuition every student can fulfil their academic potential. Everyone learns in a different way and at a different speed so I tailor my tutoring to meet each student’s specific needs both in terms of subject matter and its presentation. I break down complex concepts into simple steps, and map abstract theories to practical examples to try to make even the most difficult ideas understandable and relevant.

I offer the Casual Learner rate only on weekday daytime tuition sessions, and where the study is not directed towards a qualification in Maths. Such learners typically need maths as part of a non-maths degree, are training to become a pilot/teacher, or preparing for professional interview/selection tests.

If you're interested in A Level Further Maths or GCSE Additional/Further Maths the fees are £40 and £32 respectively, due to the higher-level content.
