Personal Description:

I am a fully trained teacher with over 35 years experience of teaching Maths to university level, numeracy and literacy to special needs students (including Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, ADD/ADHD, Asperger's and Irlen Syndrome) and creative learning/memory techniques/mind mapping/study skills.I have also become one of Tony Buzan's first ever 12 Licensed Memory Instructors in the world and one of a small number of Think Buzan Licensed Instructors in the field of creative learning techniques (including mind mapping). I have also trained as a dyslexia specialist and have had 14 years experience of developing strategies to support students of all ages with dyslexia and dyscalculia. I am passionate about helping each individual to develop greater confidence in their studies and to achieve their potential and goals and use a variety of strategies in my tutoring which are tailored to a student's individual needs.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught/tutored for over 30 years and have been a Head of Maths for a number of years. I have tutored students from primary to adult for Maths (including SATs, 11+, Common Entrance, GCSE, IGCSE, A Level, Further Maths A Level, adult GCSE Equivalency Examinations, Maths Psychometric Examinations for job selection, Maths content of undergraduate degrees in Engineering and Economics, Maths content of various HNC and BTEC courses, adult numeracy, dyslexia/dyscalculia support and in the approaches to learning developed by Tony Buzan (mind mapping, use of iMindmap software, memory skills, creative thinking, study skills, presentation skills for study/work, planning skills, etc). I can also provide planning and presentations skills tuition for business users.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is not just to deliver the facts but also to ensure students' previous misconceptions and gaps in knowledge are addressed - I 'talk' Maths as well as teach it, as skillful questioning and relevant discussion can give the student the confidence to apply their knowledge in a variety of situations. Each student is an individual and this is at the heart of my approach to their learning - e.g. notes I give are tailored to an individual student's learning needs. I also use a number of creative approaches in teaching maths.
