Now taking bookings for summer tuition.
Whether it's catching up, preparing for retakes or simply wanting to get a head start for the next academic year, summer maths tuition may be the solution to your problems.

With over 5 years of experience and a PhD in Mathematics, I specialise in teaching GCSE, A-level and University level maths in south-west London, in particular Putney, Fulham and Chelsea. I do the travelling, therefore saving you the effort and lowering my cholesterol at the same time.

My fees are reflective of the time spent preparing, travelling to and teaching the lesson.

My timetable is as follows:
Monday - Putney (10am-9pm)
Tuesday - Fulham (10am-9pm)
Wednesday - Chelsea (10am-9pm)
Thursday - Fulham/Chelsea (10am-9pm)

I also teach Fridays (10am-2pm) but only in the exceptional circumstance where you cannot make the designated day that week.






Succeeding in maths comprises three main pillars: understanding the concepts, reciting the methods and practising the applications.

To fully unlock your mathematical potential, you need to enjoy the subject. My lessons are designed with the intention to inspire, challenge and nurture the curiosity of the students, as well as building their confidence.

Once you pay the website a small fee to purchase my contact details I will be in touch straight away to arrange a free introduction lesson. This usually lasts 15-30 minutes and is simply an opportunity for me to introduce myself and learn the student's strengths and weaknesses in order to design a lesson plan.

What you can expect:
> High quality, professional teaching.
> Monthly consolidation with the parents to discuss the student's progression.
> Exam advice and individualised revision plan.
> Out of hours support.
> Stationery and resources.
> CRB documentation upon request.
> The occasional slice of homemade cake usually during Bakeoff season.

If you have any questions, even if it's simply how this all works then please do not hesitate to contact me.
