I have experience in teaching maths for Edexcel, OCR and AQA exam boards and I have exam board focused resources that I provide free of charge for my students.

I also have students studying Open University sought help with their Essential Mathematics 1 MST124 and MST125 & T207 Engineering Mechanics materials and design

Tutoring Approach:

I first asses the student on his/her ability on Maths and discuss what he/she wants to achieve and set some achievable goals and follow a structure to improve Maths skills and perform well not only in the class room but also in the examinations. I do not have a magic wand to perform miracles. I work with the student to improve their grades by explaining the concept/ theory in a clear logical manner and motivate and encourage the student to perform well in maths. I encourage and motivate students by providing plenty of exam board specific resources. My students aiming for A* / A grades are expected to do some homework between lessons. There is no substitute for practicing maths questions and solving maths problems. There were occasions where students came with a specific request to perform well in the exam; I have helped them to improve their grades at the exam through rigorous revision techniques going through past exam questions.
