Personal Description:

I have many years experience tutoring Maths, Physics and ICT, and have lectured in Electronics at the Polytechnic of Central London (now University of Westminster). In addition to A-Levels and GCSE students, I have recently worked with a number of adults requiring Maths for their professional career or further studies (teacher training, post-grad Medicine etc), and needing to rebuild their Maths skills. I am patient, understand the learning process,and look to build on each students strengths to enable their fullest potential to be achieved.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught at University level, and have tutored at GCSE, A-Level, and degree level for many years

Tutoring Approach:

The new school year has started, and I hope everyone, if you changed school, is in the school of your choice, and is all set for the year ahead

The exams, at the end of the school year, now seem so far away. Nonetheless planning now, for success in those exams, makes good sense, as carrying any weaknesses forward may inhibit your ability to get the most from the teaching in your school. Getting your tutor program in place early in the year can be very positive for ensuring progress and building confidence.

Stepping up from GCSE to AS level, can be challenging, particularly in Maths and Physics, so it is very important not to fall behind early in the year. AS results matter - they contribute to the overall A-Level results, and a basis for A-Level grade projections from your school in UCAS applications. In anticipation of the new Linear A-Levels, some schools are not entering students for AS at year 12, instead choosing to enter for all A-Level modules at Year 13. In these cases, internal Year 12 exams will be used to predict A2 grades - no let off there.

If AS results are not as good as hoped, A2 results become even more important in the final A-level grading - for University and job offers. Make the most of your A2 year, and address, any areas that need strengthening, early.

Good GCSE results ensure that you can take the subjects of your choice for A-Level. Your GCSE results may also determine A Level college entry, or even being able to continue to A-Levels subjects of your choice. Good Maths and Science GCSE`s are always looked upon favourably, whatever subjects you choose for A-level.

I am an experienced Maths, Physics and ICT tutor for A-Level, GCSE, IB, and adults needing to take Maths or Physics for professional exams, such as QTS numeracy for teaching, Army Officer Selection Board (AOSB), post-graduate Medicine etc. I have a very good understanding of how students learn, how the blockages to learning arise, and the importance of confidence, and a sense of purpose. Each student has particular issues and strengths, and I aim to create a personal plan for each. My objective, always, is for learning to be a pleasure, and to be interesting. I am patient, and provide clear explanations with many examples, to ensure that teaching sessions are enjoyable and productive, and that students learn to think and work independently.

Maths
=====
Math is a subject, where progress can only be made, and maintained, on sound foundations. I aim to establish a solid Maths base with students, which also serves to build their confidence in the subject. This provides them with the framework for making strong progress, enjoyment of their Maths, the belief that they can succeed, and a platform for further learning. I also emphasise good Maths technique and habits, so that marks are not lost through unnecessary errors.

Physics
=======
A clear understanding of the principles of Physics is needed to fully comprehend and enjoy the subject, and I try to impart that. I bring a lively purpose to learning Physics with my extensive experience in post-graduate science and technology.

ICT and Computing
=================
From a working career in Engineering and IT, I have knowledge and experience of hardware, software and IT practices. I bring real world applications of the subject, to bridge the gap between theory and practice, and foster greater understanding.

My belief is that most students can progress in Maths and Science if well taught, strong foundations are established, and good technique developed. When confidence is established, learning can be enjoyable, and self-motivation grows.

In my engineering degree, I studied Maths for 3 years, and an engineering education is largely applied maths and physics. Most of my postgraduate work involved computer models of biological systems. In my professional life I have been involved in the analysis of marketing data, creating financial and business models and using numbers daily.
