Personal Description:

As a teenager I enjoyed building radios and amplifiers so it was a natural progression for me to start working life in electronic engineering where I maintained a keen interest, not just in electronics, but in pretty much every branch of science. Along the way I collected a BSc degree, embracing a wide range of maths, physics, astronomy and electronics related topics, but It was only much later that I discovered the enthusiasm for teaching and learning which ultimately lead me to take a PGCE with Huddersfield University to become a qualified teacher. After several years teaching I took early retirement in February 2011 and have since been tutoring Maths and Physics part time.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught in a variety of institutions, Industry to college and across a wide spectrum of ages and abilities from Junior Science club to university entry tests. The majority of my teaching has been in the adult sector where I have worked extensively with small groups and individual students providing one to one coaching for professional qualifications. Since becoming a tutor my previous experience in one to one teaching methods has been invaluable and has contributed to some very successful outcomes for students.

Tutoring Approach:

I firmly believe that everyone can improve their understanding of maths and science but a good understanding is built gradually step by step. Each learnt step rests firmly on the one beneath and allows the able student to climb to great heights. Unfortunately a couple of missed steps can leave a knowledge gap that can severely limit or halt any further progress.
I have infinite patience and a friendly and supportive approach that encourages students to ask the questions they need answered to bridge those gaps for themselves and move nearer to a full understanding of the subject that can earn them the grades they deserve.
