Timothy

Brighton Tutor

I am 35 years old. I graduated from York University with a degree in Maths and Philosophy in 2006. I am a qualified teacher with 6 years experience. In addition to tutoring maths I enjoy playing Jazz Piano, in which I hold a Masters Degree.

Tutoring Experience

I have around 9 years experience as a private tutor and an additional 6 years classroom experience teaching Maths A-level, IB and GCSE at Varndean College, Brighton. I've enjoyed teaching and tutoring very much and have had the pleasure of seeing excellent results and having fun at the same time! The following references are reproduced with permission:

"Anyway the good news is that Hannah scored a very creditable A on the maths... We are all very grateful to you for all your help with Hannah – I doubt she would have done anything like so well without you!" - Mr Ellison, York

"We were delighted that Lizzie achieved a grade B in her maths … She certainly attributed her maths success to your help and we would not hesitate to recommend you to other students if that's OK with you." - Mrs Gibbons, York

"Anna got her results today and we are both very happy. I have to say thank you for teaching her maths so well in such a short time coming to our house. Her mark from maths was C and that is big progress as she had an E at the start of the school year." - Mrs Murko, York

Tutoring Approach

My approach is based on the belief that although Maths can be a daunting subject, it is actually never as hard as it seems. I will approach a topic by breaking it into small parts, each of which is quite easy to grasp. Through patience and practice I help the student to gradually build their understanding until they are able to tackle the problems by themselves. In this way uncertainty is replaced by confidence, which leads ultimately to exam success.
