I am a qualified secondary school maths teacher (B.Ed), graduating in Nottingham in the 1990s, after firstly gaining an HND in Mathematics & Statistics in Leicester. I am now based where I grew up, back in the North East of England.
I have been teaching maths in both schools & colleges and also adult education and so have gained a wealth of teaching experience & knowledge of the subject. I was also an exam officer for AQA in the past and still invigilate occasionally.
For the past few years, I have been tutoring privately, students of all ages & abilities and find it the most rewarding & effective way to deliver the subject successfully for both student and tutor.
My main area of teaching maths is at GCSE level (both Higher & Foundation) and I also cover the international iGCSE. I have experience of teaching the new 2017 syllabus that has been implemented and have used the AQA, OCR and Edexcel Pearson exam boards in the past with an excellent pass rate.
In addition to GCSE Maths, I have taught at all ability levels ranging from Key Stage 2 & 3 up to Advanced level and recently have been teaching Adult Functional Skills Maths from Entry level up to level 3 in adult education.
For casual learners - I am happy to cover any of these maths & numeracy levels up to first year A level.
For Entrance exams, however, I just specialise in the maths and non-verbal reasoning sections.
I can tutor from my home or at the home of the student - although petrol expenses may be added depending on the mileage. Each learner will have an individual learning plan based on their own needs and will be taught at their own pace.
Social distancing will currently be maintained if tutoring face to face.
For Online tutoring, I currently use Zoom, Skype or FaceTime, whichever method you prefer and relevant questions/worksheets for lessons, will be forwarded on as required.
As well as individual lessons, students can email me for additional help if needed.
I have a friendly & patient approach with all my learners. I find working on a one to one level is much less intimidating for the learner than a classroom environment and quickly helps the student gain confidence in his or her subject.
