Tonbridge Tutor

I am a Maths graduate specialising in tutoring A Level Maths & Further Maths plus IB (Higher & Standard), Pre-U and Uni maths for non-mathematicians.

My engaging approach inspires confidence in students. I am flexible in the tutoring offered, for example:
~ Regular sessions to supplement school learning
~ Capable students wanting to maximise the chances of hitting an A grade
~ Intense revision in the pre-exam period
~ Ad hoc support for university students (maths for non-mathematicians)

Tutoring Experience

I have successfully tutored well over 150 students in the West Kent area, as well as many family and friends over the years. All my 2017 cohort gained places at their first or second choice university.
My experience as a management coach brings a professional approach to learning. I have been involved in the education sector as a governor at two primary schools. I tutor only sixth form level Maths & Further Maths plus I specialise in Higher IB - a superb maths qualification but one that places great demands on the student who wants to do well!

Tutoring Approach

Learning Maths needs a tailored approach. Some students readily grasp the concepts, but need tips to make certain of the extra marks or to reduce silly errors. Others struggle to understand the basics so an imaginative approach with new ways of tackling the difficult topics is needed. Most are in between and just need plenty of practice with a wide variety of questions! It's all about tailoring the learning to the student and focusing on exam technique.

I have limited after school availability so prefer students who can take free periods at home. Please enquire if interested in late cancellations.

I prefer to work at the student's home but they are welcome at my home in Hildenborough. Sessions are billed by the hour but 90 minutes is more usual. Travel is free in the Sevenoaks / Tonbridge / Wrotham triangle. Further afield may incur a travel charge.
