Malvern Tutor

Now in my ninth year of classroom teaching and private tuition of maths and the sciences, I have an excellent track record of boosting student grades. After gaining my BSc in 1995 I worked in industry, gaining my MSc on the way, until retraining to be a teacher in 2009 and going on to complete the two-year Diploma in Teaching and Learning in the Lifelong Learning Sector (DTLLS) at the University of Warwick in 2014.

Tutoring Experience

The first seven years of my teacher career were spent teaching Maths at Key Stage 3, GCSE, AS/A2, Functional Skills and university access level, firstly at a international private school, then at the local Further Education College. Over the last four years I have tutored over forty students in Maths and the sciences through the changes to the GCSEs and A-levels. Since September 2017 I have provided intervention groups, revision courses and one-to-one tuition for local schools and colleges at GCSE and A-level

Tutoring Approach

I aim to develop enjoyment and confidence in the subject by using a problem-solving approach to exam questions in which I provide a supportive environment for students to work things out for themselves as much as possible.This is the best way to encourage deep learning. If working towards an exam we will work closely with the syllabus and past exam papers to target revision in the most effective way, paying particular attention to what is needed to jump over the next grade boundary.
