Personal Description:

Hi, I’m Paul, a married father of two daughters aged 10 and 15. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering with A-levels in Mathematics (Pure & Applied), Physics and Chemistry, and have worked in the oil, gas and refining industry for 30 years. As a practising engineer, I am well versed in applying my mathematical and scientific knowledge to practical situations, working accurately and presenting work in a clear manner. I have recently completed a PGCE teacher training in secondary school mathematics, thus enhancing my teaching and understanding of pupils' learning.

Tutoring Experience:

I often mentor and guide junior engineers through complex design procedures and calculations. I have also tutored privately during my career and I am currently offering tutoring at Key Stages 1-4, GCSE and A-level in Mathematics (Pure & Mechanics), and Physics to GCSE.

Tutoring Approach:

I see tutoring not as teaching but learning, an extension of the classroom but not a substitute for it, and as an engineer I try to bring a different approach to learning to that of a teacher. My approach is to structure tutoring sessions around the student’s needs, focusing on specific areas of weakness. By working alongside the student on structured questions I aim to increase the student’s confidence in their ability. We can then discuss and resolve any issues. For me ‘seeing is believing’ and wherever possible I seek to enhance the student’s understanding with practical examples of the problem.
