Maths Tuition in Colchester

My qualifications are primarily in Mathematics and Software Engineering at The University of East Anglia and Brunel University, and I attended Northgate Grammar School in Ipswich in the 1970s. I have a wide range of other interests that enable me to continue my research and writing, mainly in Genealogy and History.
Prior to working in education, I was an IT professional with a career that spanned over thirty years, predominantly in IT financial systems with twenty-five years experience in the City of London, the last fifteen of which were as a project manager.

Tutoring Experience

I have worked in Education since 2013. I have worked in a number of secondary schools in Essex and Suffolk as a classroom assistant, trainee teacher, and cover teacher. In schools I have taught Mathematics to students at KS (Key Stage) 3 (years 7-9) and KS4 (10-11 GCSE) levels.
Since becoming a full-time private tutor, I have gained a wider range of experience including KS2 (years 3-6), KS5 (A-Level and International Baccalaureate), 11+ and 13+ entrance examinations, and BioMedical Admissions Tests for entrance to University.
I decided to cease working full-time in school in June 2016 and concentrate on personal Removed tuition. I still work occasionally as a supply teacher or cover supervisor. This allows me to concentrate predominantly on my private tuition in Colchester, North Essex and South Suffolk.

Tutoring Approach

I have an excellent relationship with pupils of all ages and my caring, focussed approach has led me to decide to concentrate on individual Removed tuition. I have a constant focus on high quality work with the highest expectations of myself as well as my pupils. I am always very careful to build pupils’ confidence in a very supportive environment.
I am able to host tuition at my home or happy to travel any reasonable distance. I am currently available at any mutually convenient time of any day of the week.
I have a current valid CRB/DBS certificate that remains up to date via the update service and is available for inspection online.
