Personal Description:

I am a Preston based tutor, currently working in a college teaching A-Level and GCSE mathematics. I graduated in 2010 from Manchester University with a degree in Mathematics and Computer Science.

A students mathematical ability can be severely affected by their confidence in the subject. I believe that increasing a students confidence will lead to an increase in their understanding, creating a relaxed environment to learn helps with this. With a one-to-one setting being more relaxed than a classroom environment, students can increase their confidence and increase their grades.

Each lesson will concentrate on a students specific needs, and focus on exam technique for those studying GCSEs during the months leading up to exams.

I am an enthusiastic, sociable Mathematician who enjoys sports outside of teaching. I compete in Swimming, Cycling, Triathlon and Rowing.

Contact for more information. I travel to you.

Tutoring Experience:

I have gained a PGCE in Secondary Mathematics from Edge Hill University and have previously been teaching in Primary Schools and several high performing Secondary schools in Preston.

I have taught maths since 2010, and currently teach both A -Level and GCSE maths.

I currently have a 100% pass rate with my past tutees.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe a relaxed environment is the best way to learn. Students have teachers at school/college, I prefer to be more relaxed so each student is at ease, they are willing to try questions that they have no idea how to answer because they are not afraid of getting the question wrong, as opposed to answering in front of 30 other students. This adds to the students confidence, rarely do students get 100% in exams, but those with the highest scores, are the ones willing to try every question, even the ones they become stuck on.

I am available to contact via email with any problems outside of our normal tutoring time and by text should any problems arise. Being flexible with times, I am also available to fit in around late cancellations and rearranging of lessons.
