I am a professional tutor who has the skills and passion to help my students reach the highest grades. I am married with two children and have taught maths at some level for thirty years. I have a wide range of interests including films, history and sport. I believe that education is the key to ‘choice’ and ‘opportunity’ which is the greatest gift we can give people to enhance their quality of life. I currently teach Y13 in a Secondary School but most of my time is dedicated to one-to-one tuition.
Many years of teaching with an open mind to innovative ideas and teaching methods means that I not only have excellent subject knowledge including the history of maths, but I know that students do not all understand at the same level or benefit from the same style of delivery and therefore use a variety of approaches. I have marked for a variety of exam boards at all levels (SATs, GCSE, A Level). I have taught in Norfolk, Lincolnshire, Telford and Shropshire and been Head of Physics, Head of Maths, ICT Manager and Senior Teacher and am now a Professional Tutor.
From experience, I know what students must grasp to ensure progress. I make the techniques accessible and clear, starting in an uncomplicated way and ensuring coverage of all aspects including the most challenging applications – I don’t only explain how to do it but why doing it that way makes sense and works! I am skilled at asking questions that develop a student’s depth of understanding and student’s questions are answered in a way that makes the obstacles to learning evaporate - no question is too simple. Material is planned and organised to meet the needs of each individual student. I have high standards and am focussed on hard work but there is fun to be had too.
