### Map Location

## Personal Description:

I have a first class honours degree in mathematics from Goldsmith's College London where I won the Stanley Hails Prize. (1997). Mathematics is something which I have always felt intuitively that I could teach. I have worked as a mathematics tutor in a state school teaching GCSE, A level, AEA and STEP. My students experience a noticeable boost in confidence after they start with me and I get about half my students on recommendation. I enjoy helping people to find interest in this subject whether at GCSE level or Cambridge entrance.

## Tutoring Experience:

I started teaching mathematics for Thomas Jackson Tutors 1987. I have given private tuition in mathematics since 1988, and I taught mathematics from GCSE to A level Further Mathematics AEA and STEP at an academy in Essex from 2009 to 2017.

## Tutoring Approach:

I teach in person or online via Skype. All lessons a re one to one. I do in the lessons what my students ask me to do since the issues usually arise from what they are doing at school or college. I can also structure courses for people who are not in school. I do not merely show students how to do particular questions but I teach them how to think about the subject and their progress quickens because of this deep and necessary understanding. At A level, I do not cover Decision or Discrete Mathematics. I will always answer queries between lessons by email.

**From Petros ( /5):**

*(A-Level Maths)*Robert's support in my son's A-levels Maths (Y12) was very helpful. Robert helped him see the exercises from viewpoints that he had not thought of before, and this works well in being able to give my son alternative approaches when his thought-route does not work as efficiently. We did not continue the sessions with Robert because my son wants to work more on test-practicing than one-to-one sessions, but I hope we will be able to have Robert's assistance (given of course that he is available) in the future.

**From Jane ( /5):**

*(A-Level Maths)*Robert is tutoring my son for A2 Maths via Skype, which works well. He combines a strong subject knowledge with kindness, patience, flexibility and humour. I am very glad that we found him.

**From Andrea ( /5):**

*(GCSE Maths)*My son only had a few lessons with Robert and already he feels more confident in maths. He was very anxious about having lessons on Skype but it’s working fine and saves us a lot of time we would have spent on traveling. Robert is very patient, dedicated and flexible when we need to change timings. I would highly recommend him especially for anxious students.

**From Philippe ( /5):**

*(GCSE Maths)*Amazing tutor, he helped me through my GCSEs all the way to the end of my A levels, and helped me achieve the grades I needed for university. The one on one support was great, and allowed me to adapt to different questions and exams.

Highly recommend!

**From Bruce ( /5):**

*(A-Level Maths)*Robert has a very engaging and interesting style of teaching. His subject knowledge for A' Level maths is flawless. He is quick to respond to any query and always replies in a polite manner. We would recommend him.

**From Richard ( /5):**

*(A-Level Maths)*Robert is friendly, welcoming and patient. Taking me back through the basics so that I understood the process to more complex maths long forgotten from my time at secondary school. I couldn’t recommend highly enough.

**Reply from Robert:**Many thanks Richard. It was a pleasure to teach you.

**From Alan ( /5):**

**From Ayeni ( /5):**

*(University Maths)*Great teacher understands the students needs and goes the right pace. I'm Happy to learn mathematics with him!

From John (5/5):(A-Level Maths)Within the few weeks I have received tuition from Robert, my confidence in the subject has already increased greatly. He has a perfect understanding of the entire OCR specification, and is able to explain a number of differing methods to help me find the one that is best for me.Robert is also keen to provide some assistance outside of tutor sessions by email, which I appreciate a lot.
