Personal Description:

Hello!

Before reading on, please note that I do not have any evening term-time slots left! However, I am taking bookings during the daytime in the first week of the Christmas holidays (Monday 19/12/2016 to Friday 23/12/2016) with times starting at 8.00 am and finishing at 5.00 pm, so if you need quick hit booster/catch-up sessions, then please contact me.
I expect to have a couple of regular term-time sessions available towards the end of January 2017.

I am a qualified and experienced teacher, working full time on one-to-one tuition, specialising in Maths and the Sciences, for students of all ages, including mature students.

I am particularly adept at helping students who are struggling with the subjects or who are suffering from a lack of confidence. We identify the reasons, and then use a variety of strategies to resolve any issues - often these are gaps in knowledge and understanding from earlier in the student`s school career. We then decide how to approach the tuition - working on specific issues, or working alongside the school lessons, embedding the knowledge and understanding. Of course, these two approaches are often combined! I also have a significant set of resources in my office, where I prefer to work.

I am calm and patient, and happy to return to areas where understanding may not be fully embedded.

Contact me for a free no-obligation half-hour consultation in my purpose built office, where we discuss the issues and agree the way forward.

I also have a small library attached to my office where parents can sit and wait during the tutoring sessions, and where they can read or use the internet.

Tutoring Experience:

I was a full-time science teacher in a Southampton secondary school, before semi-retiring in July 2014 - fully qualified and experienced. Prior to that, I worked in the finance and technical industries, latterly as a project manager, having started as a computer programmer (before the days of PCs!), and particularly enjoyed mentoring trainees, and presenting to wider audiences.

Tutoring Approach:

Often, tutees will have some understanding of the subject that they are struggling with - but not always. I will use the free half-hour consultation in my purpose built office to start to identify issues and agree the way ahead. If the tutees is particularly unsure, it often indicates a lack of confidence, which is remedied by reviewing what they can do, building confidence, and then moving forward, with consolidation at each stage - for example, on completion of a small topic.
My wide experience in the real world allows me to link science and maths to everyday life, and also link concepts between the different topics within the curriculum - this enables the students to fit their new knowledge into an existing structure, which makes it much easier to remember and understand. I am enthusiastic about my subjects (and related subjects, as well as history) which also helps engender interest because I can talk about examples where the science under discussion is used in the world around.
