I have enjoyed teaching maths for many years, and also very successfully tutored individual pupils over that time, including supporting several pupils through the the demands of the new 9-1 GCSE maths and the recent AS maths.
I recently retired from my teaching career and I continue to enjoy the mathematics and to share my expertise by offering private tuition more widely.
I have a very strong educational background in maths, a secure knowledge of maths at all levels from key stage 3 upwards, and a particular interest and understanding of nearly all of the KS5 modules and topics for AS and A2 Maths and Further Maths. I also have many years experience of marking examination papers so that I can confidently advise pupils where marks are gained and lost.
I have taught in secondary schools in both the Independent and State sectors and I have a full knowledge and understanding of the requirements of the maths syllabuses from school year 7 (pupils aged 11 years) to school year 13 (pupils aged 18 years). This also includes the new GCSE 9-1 and the new AS schemes of work.
My pupils vary in ability from the very able to the least able and many of them have not only achieved the grades they needed, but also increased their enjoyment and confidence in their maths.
I firmly believe that the key to success is hard-work and motivation and I delight in the achievements of these determined pupils at whatever level.
I am particularly pleased and proud of the achievements of many of my students in the public exams as the results have included numerous top grades and significant grade improvements, and comments from parents such as ' she is ecstatic about her A grade, she couldn't have done it without you!'
During the first few tutoring sessions I find out each individual's mathematical background and aspirations, and which areas they are less confident about. I explain topics in as much detail as necessary to enable the pupil to successfully solve problems in that area, and strongly encourage pupils to show and understand a clear method, rather than relying on rote learning or guesswork. I also encourage pupils to ask questions freely and am happy to explain topics many times and in different ways until a real understanding and competence can be achieved.
I do expect pupils to complete a reasonable amount of practice questions in between sessions as this is the only way to truly consolidate learning. I am happy to mark and correct these solutions. I am also keen to review topics taught in their school lessons to ensure full understanding, and briefly explain where the topic is going next so that pupils can develop the confidence to contribute more in class.

Rosemary is the most wonderful maths tutor, and we feel very fortunate to have found her. Rosemary is friendly, and easy to talk to, but also professional. She has an amazing knowledge and ability in maths, but her genuine interest and love of her subject also is very apparent. Rosemary explains things really well, and my daughter's ability, confidence and enjoyment of maths has grown significantly. She has also made significant progress in her predicted maths GCSE grades. My daughter comes out of her sessions with Rosemary energised and excited about maths!
We have found Rosemary to be 100% reliable and punctual. She has also been flexible in order to fit in sessions around a busy GCSE timetable.
My daughter is going on to take both maths and further maths as 'A' level subjects, and we are very much hoping that Rosemary will carry on working with her for the duration of her 'A' levels.
