Maths Lessons in Uttoxeter

I have been a teacher for over 40 years and I have played semi professional football for 20 of those years.
My interests are mainly to do with sport but I have tutored most of my working life. I did play at Wembley for Oxford University in my younger days !! I always wanted to be a pro footballer !!

Tutoring Experience

I have taught in a variety of schools in Oxford ,Staffordshire and Greater Manchester. The schools I have taught in range from Middle to Grammar to Private. I was Head of Maths at The Dragon School, Oxford.
I have mainly taught GCSE and A level most of my life but recently I taught 2 year 8 pupils at a Middle School in Leek for 2 terms and they both achieved A* grades at GCSE. As a teacher it is always good to know how marks are awarded in exams, so I was an examiner for many years.

Tutoring Approach

I like to get to know my students ( their strengths and their weaknesses ) and give them lots of positive encouragement when doing set questions. It has got to be fun and light hearted when teaching younger ones !! But the most important point is that they are learning at their pace and gaining confidence in their ability.
