I am a retired lecturer from the Mathematics Department at Durham University where I taught Mathematics for 13 years.
During this time I also did private tuition for GCSE and A level students.

Tutoring Experience

In my time at Durham University, as well as lecturing courses, I also tutored several Maths subjects; Decision, Pure, Applied Mathematics, Statistics and Probability.
I received extremely positive comments for my tutoring in the regular students' questionnaires.

Below are some of the feedbacks I have received since starting private home tuitions:

Rating: 5/5
Comments: A level Maths
We feel very lucky to have found Sharry! My daughter lost her confidence at the start of A level Maths but at the end of her very first session with Sharry, she was so much happier, and her confidence started to grow. She achieved an A at AS level, and is now aiming for an A* at A2.
The following observations are from my daughter: Sharry has a very positive and friendly personality, and is easy to talk to. He makes you feel comfortable asking questions, and is excellent at explaining. He is very thorough, going into more depth than class lessons. He gives you a summary/teaches you, then you do the questions together. He will sometimes talk you through questions, especially if you don't understand. As the year goes on, you do more independently, and he checks/helps. If you don't understand, he will go over it until you do. He gives a few different ways of doing things, as one might suit you better. The sessions feel like revision. You go through exam papers in the lead up to the exams, which is very helpful, as you can see patterns forming.

Rating: 5/5
Comments: Thanks to Sharry my daughter achieved a Grade A maths A level this year, and she told me that without his help she would never have achieved such a good result.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Sharry to anyone considering a Maths tutor as without him my daughter may not have been going to her university of choice in September.

Tutoring Approach

My approach to tutoring is to help students to be able to grasp basic concepts and apply them in solving more complicated Mathematics problems.
