I have studied a Bachelors and Masters degree in Engineering at Loughborough University. I live in Wollaton, Nottingham and have 3 children in secondary school/college. I enjoy tutoring and have helped over 800 children with Maths and Science over my 25 years experience. I specialise in exam preparation and have excellent references and feedback from lots of very satisfied parents. I have also marked exam papers and can guide students to the essential key points.

Tutoring Experience

I have tutored online and in person from Primary, KS3, GCSE and A-level and also have experience with Adult learners and children with special needs. I use Zoom/Skype/Teams and have a Graphics tablet allowing me to write onto the screen and share screens. I send any notes, summaries or questions done on the screen as pdf files at the end. I have dozens of online CGP textbooks/workbooks/revision guides and digital lessons/homework which I share online or by email. I am very experienced and fluent with using online portals such as MyMaths, Hegarty Maths and MathsWatch and know how to use them effectively and to their full potential to aid progress and learning. I use many other online quizzes and tests to check understanding and make lessons interactive.
I teach small groups of children and many of my students continue with sessions for 5 or 6 years along with their siblings. I have had many positive letters/gifts from parents once their children's excellent results arrive. Nearly all of my students improve by at least 2 or 3 grades from their starting position. I cover all the main exam boards including AQA, Edexcel and OCR.

Tutoring Approach

I have a patient, friendly and flexible approach and am successful since I adjust my teаching style to match eаch student. I like to make my sessions as enjoyable and interactive as possible in order to motivate and engage my students.

I provide real life examples which helps understanding and gives purpose. I simplify complex problems/topics into smaller, manageable tasks or points. I guide students to the answer or correct path by asking key, well-timed questions or hints.

I carry out an initial assessment and then create a schedule, targeting weaker topics. I review work regularly and I always provide homework at the end of each session to help practice the concepts learnt in the lesson and regularly provide feedback to parents. I test students on material covered a few weeks earlier to ensure it has been retained.

I start working on exam questions early on allowing time later to progress onto more challenging questions. I give guidance on efficient techniques, time planning and the best approach for all the various types of exam questions.
