I am an experienced and friendly maths tutor with many years experience of teaching mathematics at all levels (GCSE, Scottish Nationals and Highers, HN and A-Level) and private tutoring with excellent results. As an examination marker I have a good idea of what is expected in the final exams. In particular I use strategies to increase my students' confidence and learning skills so they become independent learners using their problem solving skills under exam condition. I endeavour to encourage my students to try and achieve to the best of their ability. I have a valid and current CRB certificate obtained by my employer


Teaching Experience:
Over 20 years of teaching, lecturing, one to one tutoring and many happy and successful students. Even those who did not really like maths in class, often stop me in the street comment on how much they have benefited from their mathematical learning, use it in their part time job or it has lead to a good career, or they are just happy to be able to do a monthly budget.
One of the signs of a good tuition is the returning customer and i have had the joy of teaching siblings from the same family for several years.


Tutoring Approach:
'There are two good things in life' according to S Poisson: 'learning maths and teaching maths'. Of course a little exaggerated, but i would say that enabling someone else to develop mathematical thinking and problem solving skills, as well as using and applying this ability to solve equations and carry out complex calculations, for me are some of the most exciting aspects of maths tutoring. The approach i incorporate into all my teaching is to enthuse, motivate and empower my students, so they develop a deep understanding of mathematical processes and thereby learn the skills needed for each particular topic. I also incorporate puzzles and interactive resources into my lessons.

Prizes and Scholarships

I am a chartered teacher of Mathematics and have been training maths teachers for the last 10 years.

Other Qualifications

I have a master of education about how best to teach and learn mathematics. This is had a positive impact on my tutoring skills and i now work on deeper conceptual learning and understanding rather than just rote learning. The approach has lead to better exam performance and results.
