A BIT ABOUT ME
B.Sc (Hons), PGCE
After qualifying as a teacher I worked in various institutions including Secondary Schools and Sixth Form Colleges. I have been teaching Maths and Further Maths in schools and specialist A-level colleges since 1999 and moved over to full time private online tuition in 2021. Prior to this I was the head of the Mathematics department in a private sixth form college for many years, taught intensive revision courses every Easter and gave classes to Oxbridge candidates who sat the various Oxbridge Maths entrance exams, I also coached for Maths competitions such as the British Mathematics Olympiad. Now, as a private Tutor, I continue to do all of the above privately and online.
I have a degree in Mathematics from York University with a subsidiary in Education. My PGCE was completed at Warwick University in Secondary Maths Education.
I have a large database of resources including questions from past exam papers and questions tailored to the common difficulties experienced by students in each topic. I believe the best way to learn A-Level Maths is by practice and experience of as many questions and problem types as possible. Having a tutor who is able to guide you through these problems and select an appropriate follow up task whilst also being able to identify key areas in need of development will give you a great advantage in your final exams.
During my time as a Head of Department I was continually exposed to discussion with exam boards about syllabus details and marking trends, this put me in a great position to advise students (and my staff) as to the best ways to go about tackling problems and the most effective way of presenting solutions to ensure maximum marks are gained.
