Personal Description:

Hi, I am a retired maths teacher living in the Brixham area. My educational background is Civil Engineering, (Bsc from Manchester University) and GTP in Mathematics through Exeter University. I have now retired from full time teaching and focus on private tuition.
I am married and have two sons, one currently at Essex University studying Bio Chemistry and the other is an IT specialist working in Torquay.
I am a keen sailor but also enjoy walking, running and fixing everything that breaks except computers!

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught mathematics in secondary schools since 2005 and privately since 2007. I am now semi-retired and focus on private tuition at both lower school (Key Stage 3) and GCSE Foundation and Higher levels.

Tutoring Approach:

My students all enjoy my informal style of teaching and really get a big boost in confidence from my lessons, particularly if they are preparing for examinations. Examination technique and practice is a key area of focus. I encourage pupils to use mental maths whilst answering exam questions and get them to check that their answers are realistic. I also show (where it is possible, eg percentages) how to answer questions without a calculator even if the question is from a calculator paper.
The feedback I get from my students (and their parents) is that they actually enjoy and look forward to their maths lesson!
I teach from my home or at the students home depending on their preference.
