1st Class Honours Lively&Enthusiastic Online Maths Tutor

I am a Chartered Accountant but throughout my working life, I have always given private maths tuition to A Level and GCSE students. I also have experience with 11+, 13+ and Common Entrance exams.

I have a First Class Honours mathematics degree from the University of Liverpool. In my final year I was awarded the Sampford Prize for outstanding academic achievement.

I have had many successful pupils including one student being accepted by Cambridge University, after I had tutored him for maths and further maths.

I have also had a student obtain full marks in a Core 4 module and most recently (2015 exams, AQA syllabus) a pupil obtain a double A in maths and further maths, improving his further maths prediction by 2 grade boundaries.

I enjoy getting to know my pupils and understanding the best way for each of them to learn. Everyone is different. The skill is to quickly identify the areas where each pupil is struggling and address these. To also then ensure that each pupil can attempt questions from a variety of topics all at once, and not in isolation.

I also derive real satisfaction from my pupils achieving their desired results. I am often more excited than them!

Agreeing to tutor you/your child, means I am 100% committed to obtaining the desired outcome. I am very honest with progress and often spend time outside of lessons preparing additional material for students to ensure we reach our target.

In my spare time I enjoy playing tennis, tabletennis, chess and the violin. I was a national junior tabletennis singles champion and won the world corporate games in 2006. I achieved Grade 8 on the violin at age 13. I am also a qualified tennis coach.

I have two young sons so am currently predominantly teaching online with some lessons taking place in my home. I find that using online interactive whiteboards are very good for teaching maths - it saves a lot of travel time (for both student and tutor) but also leaves a record of work covered that both student and tutor can access.

Reference for Alice

Alice is an extremely good tutor. She spends a lot of her time helping with any problems you may have and is very attentive throughout the lessons. She is always organised and thoroughly prepared before the lesson, which enables her to devote all the lesson time to her pupil and their needs. She sets a lot of problems on areas you are less comfortable with and always goes through them thoroughly, until you are comfortable with all the material. The lessons are very helpful and I feel I gained a lot from them. I would definitely recommend her as a tutor.

Excellent! Worth every penny

We happened across Alice online and had never used tutoring before but my daughter (studying for GCSE at the time) was struggling due to having had a high turnover of teachers and math just not being one of her strengths. Alice was patient, understanding and extremely knowledgeable in the syllabus. Her teaching methods obviously worked- my daughter's grade improved from a low C to 1 mark off an A* in her final exam! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alice.

Maths Tuition

Alice started to tutor me when I was studying to take my A level maths. I was struggling with some of the pure maths and statistics modules and decided that some one to one tuition would help me. I needed to get a good result in my A level to secure my place at university. Alice took her time to explain aspects of the modules that I found difficult. She was very approachable and easy to speak to. I actually enjoyed the sessions with her and knew that I was learning more. Following my tuition I obtained an A in my A level maths.

Maths
Outcome:
I achieved an A in my A level maths.

Great Statistic Tutoring Session

Alice did a fantastic job during our Statistics tutoring session. She took the time before our session to review and work on the Statistics assignment I had to complete, which enabled us to use the time extremely effectively. She walked me through each step and took the time to stop and explain whenever I got confused.
Subject:
Maths
Outcome:
I left the tutoring session with more statistics knowledge and feeling much better prepared for my assignment!

Alice's Tutoring

Alice tutored me for about 4 months before my university accounting exam re-take, she was very patient with me and has extremely good knowledge of the subject. She made my sessions fun and I thoroughly enjoyed them. I recommend her to anyone looking for tutoring for their children. Not only did she help me understand the maths, she is also very nice and approachable in the process of doing so.

Alice

We contacted Alice late in the day (after trying three other tutors)to help my son get through his Maths A Level after an average AS and seriously worrying A2 mock results. Alice did a marvellous job in a short space of time building his confidence and explaining things clearly. He improved on his AS result getting a C and actually enjoyed the weekly lessons. Wish we had started earlier.

Outcome:
C at A2 Maths in two months

Succesful skype tutoring in Maths and English

Alice is a pragmatic, no-nonsense tutor. I felt that her approach to tutoring my daughter was efficient and effective. We only had about four or five sessions because I mainly wanted to make sure that my daughter understood how the exams would work and what she should focus on to be as successful as she could be. Alice did manage in that short time to teach my daughter several maths topics that had not yet been taught at school, yet did come up in the exam.
Subject:
11 Plus
Outcome:
So far, success in the first round of Tiffin Girls'.
