I am a graduate of Bristol University (1976, Hons Physics with Mathematics). I am married with a young son (born 2007). My interests are music, gardening and genealogy. I am a chartered software engineer (CEng) and have worked in the software industry for 14 years as well as being a teacher.

Tutoring Experience

I am a fully qualified teacher and have worked in the Secondary, Tertiary and Offender Learning sectors. I have taught Mathematics, Physics and IT up to GCE A Level. I currently have students aged from 10 to nearly 70!

Tutoring Approach

I aim to tailor tuition for the individual learner. At the intial session we agree a plan of action based on the learner's needs. We continue to review this plan as needs change. The tuition is intended to support study at school or college or individual study (eg distance learning courses). Sessions are informal but focussed and enjoyable. I set homework if required but prefer to concentrate on understanding and practice within the session. I like to support teaching by using appropriate computer software and simulations.
