I love Maths and I am passionate about tutoring maths. performed very well in Maths at every stage GCSE, Advanced Level, University and at work. I am 53 years old and I am married with 2 grown up children. I am a proud Darlington resident and I have lived in Darlington since 1992. I have helped over 80 students from the First tutors since 2010. Please feel free to read over 65 feedback from the parents of my students to get a sense of the quality of my tutoring service.
I have taught Maths at Advanced Level (AS/A2) for many years and I have trained to teach new AS and A levels from Sept 2017 as well as GCSE 9-1 syllabus from 2015. I am proud that many of my students achieved A grade in AS maths & A* Grade in A2 Maths and secured first choice University places. I have experience in teaching maths for Edexcel, OCR, OCR MEI and AQA exam boards and I have exam board focused resources that I provide free of charge for my students. Many students came to me with different level of ability in maths and I am pleased to report that I did help them to achieve the grades required to secure a place at a University of their choice for the degrees that they want to read. I am proud that my students are at the following Universities; Cambridge University, Imperial College, London School of Economics, Warwick University, Bristol University, Birmingham University, Manchester University, Durham University, City University, Southampton University, Newcastle University, Nottingham University, Leeds University, Leicester University and Sheffield University.
Because of my work experience in the real world, I generally relate Maths application to real world experiences that makes student to understand the concept and this makes their learning experience easier.

I do help undergraduate students from time to time with their Engineering mathematics, Analytical techniques (Maths) and Structures and materials for engineering students at University during term and out of term time. I also have students studying Open University sought help with their Essential Mathematics 1 MST124 and MST125 & T207 Engineering Mechanics materials and design
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.
