Personal Description:

I am a retired lecturer in mathematics with many years experience of private tuition.
For the past 20 years I have been a senior A-level examiner in maths for Pearson(Edexcel) & so have a clear understanding of exam board requirements in mathematics.
I am co-author of two mathematics textbooks for BTEC students
I have been told that I have a friendly manner and am very patient.

Tutoring Experience:

I have 36 years of teaching experience most of which has been in sixth form centres in Further Education Colleges. Over my career I have taught GCSE, A and A/S Maths and Further Maths. However I have also taught other courses ranging from basic numeracy up to HND.
I spent 3 years as an instructor officer in the Royal Navy where I taught maths to RN apprentices. Over my career, I have given private tuition to many students, but, until I retired, have not advertised my services

Tutoring Approach:

I try and maintain a relaxed but focussed approach when tutoring. My preference is to have a clear goal ie an exam to be passed or a grade to be improved.
Initially I identify areas or topics of weakness where we can go over the concepts involved and then practice examples and past paper questions. I do believe that a good understanding of the concepts underpinning a particular topic makes learning far easier. When this has been achieved, the tutee gains confidence and can consolidate their knowledge by lots of practise!
