Information About John - Malvern tutor - (13 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated John:
I am an early-retired scientist with a career that remained mainly on the technical side involving advanced mathematics. I have a wide range of interests including chess and bridge, hill walking and table-tennis, and many cultural interests.
My first teaching experience was at Oxford University where, as well as tutoring first and third year undergraduates in maths, I worked for a local private "crammer" teaching mainly O and A-level maths. Subsequently I tutored friends and relatives on request. My career as a scientist included peer-reviewing countless technical documents which involved discussing and sorting out conceptual and mathematical details with the authors. I have been tutoring since 2009 which has been an enjoyable experience both for me and (I believe!) for my students. I am very happy with the feedback I have been receiving together with some gratifying exam results.
Until recently I was happy teaching a range of levels but now I will only consider more challenging material (advanced A-level, STEP, university entrance) and more aspirational students. My teaching style is informal with the student encouraged to participate fully and creatively. I only take on a few students so remain fairly flexible in arranging lessons.

I would certainly recommend John to any of my friends who might need some help with their maths in the future.
He was flexible with time.
On the whole it was pleasant experience.
