Personal Description:

I am a retired Accountant with a huge passion for Maths and teaching. I teach all ages up to GCSE level, including Maths for entrance exams. I have been tutoring intermittently for over 25 years, starting with my eldest son who used to be incredibly weak at Maths but who ended up with A grades in both his GCSEs and A-Levels. I also tutored my other 2 children who both received A*'s in Maths GCSE and an A and B in their maths A-Levels.

I have never formally pursued tuition as a full-time profession or business due to other commitments. Now that I am retired really keen on doing more given how much I enjoy it. Nothing gives me more satisfaction than seeing children progress, witnessing their confidence increase and ultimately securing improved grades.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been providing 1-2-1 maths tuition for over 25 years. It started with my eldest son and has continued to this day. My my tutees have generally been children of friends, family or acquaintances, or referrals. This has been at all ages and stages up to GCSE, as well as for entrance exams.

I have only ever tutored Maths and this will continue to be my focus as it is where my strength lies!

Tutoring Approach:

My biggest virtues as a tutor are patience and the ability to build up a child's confidence. As a tutor patience is absolute paramount. All tutees invariably start with different levels of confidence and progress at different speeds and I am excellent in not getting flustered if some children learn slower than others. I also excel at building up a child's confidence through ensuring they are stretched, whilst knowing that I am here to support them (rather than act as a teacher in the conventional classroom sense who children often feel are assessing them). I continually emphasise that making a mistake is nothing to be afraid of and that is how they learn.

Another strength of mine is creativity in helping children learn difficult areas or overcome blocks that they are struggling with. This comes from 25 years of accounting and teaching maths!
