I have lived in the West Midlands for nearly 35 years, after moving here from the West Country in 1981. A long-time supporter of Somerset County Cricket Club, I enjoy watching cricket and following the travails of the England cricket team. I also play the piano and favour both the music of J. S. Bach and modern jazz composers.
I have been teaching for 33 years at Wood Green Academy, an 11-18 comprehensive school. I have taught all levels of Mathematics ranging from Key Stage 3 up to and including Further Mathematics. I also have experience of teaching the GCSE Statistics and the AS Statistics courses. I have been caoching students for the past two years at all levels, including some first year Degree work.
Whilst the one to one environment is ideal for developing self-confidence in mastering the methods and techniques needed in Mathematics, it also gives an opportunity to focus on the understanding behind the topic. This, I believe, is fundamental in helping the student to become more proficient in the subject.
