Personal Description:

30 years teaching experience .Particularly with children with discalcula. Also worked in Pharmaceutical Industry as Chemist and Production Manager where science and Maths were important.
Currently serving as Scientific Advisor (part time) for Reserveage Organics, an awardwinning company founded and led by my daughter.
Lifelong interest in Science, History, Literature, Classical Music and Chess.

Tutoring Experience:

Tutoring for Maths and Science - in Canada, UK and French Switzerland.
I was school Principal of Sunrise Waldorf School in Duncan, Vancouver Island.
I have taught students of varying abilities, including moderate learning difficulties (Perceval Centre de Pedagogie Curative St Prex, Vaud). One of my Maths students, who was dyslexic, eventually became a very successful boat designer. He has designed prizewinning racing yachts!

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that there is untapped potential in every student. I start by showing an interest in the students special interests or hobbies. Motivating the student to problem solve by showing the larger relevance of Maths and Science to the modern world.

First identifying the weak spots of subject understanding and then building on individual student's own confidence. We may work with test questions from recent exams and set homework. Encouraging the student's own activity in the process, which is crucial for real learning.
