Associate Chartered Accountant with the ICAEW working as a Manager at a large global professional services firm, with a first class mathematics degree from the University of Warwick. Have enjoyed studying mathematics and finance academically and for pleasure for over a decade, including helping others to advance their understanding and enthusiasm for the subjects along the way. I'm also a proud educational volunteer as a Non-Executive Director, Trustee and School Governor of a Secondary Academy. Mathematics and education aside, I'm a book lover, piano player and keen (but not quite pro) skier.
Non-Executive Director, Trustee and School Governor of a Secondary Academy, serving as the Vice Chair of the Teaching/Learning Committee, as a member of the Finance Committee and as the Governor in charge of the Mathematics department. I've also helped others to advance their understanding and enthusiasm for mathematics for over a decade. I am fully versed in the new GCSE 9-1 and A-Level specifications and examinations.
My approach to tutoring is to prepare and inspire each student to want to understand the questions and to ultimately explain the answers to me. I constantly ask questions that encourage them to strip each question back to its mathematical basics, enabling them to build upon their knowledge to reach the answer, having fully understood how they arrived at it. Studying mathematics (and finance) for over a decade, and helping others to excel in the subject along the way, has taught me that confidence and enjoyment are key; and confidence and enjoyment are exactly what I instill in each of my students.
