Where do you teach?
I can teach at the student's home if the tutee is located in Bournemouth, Poole or nearby. I also teach in Bournemouth Public Library and over the internet with an interactive whiteboard and Skype. Please visit my website to find more details about the benefits of on-line tutoring.

I tutor roughly equal numbers of tutees in Mathematics and Physics and for some tutees both these subjects.

I prepare students for A level and GCSE maths and physics exams. I also prepare tutees for 11+ and similar tests/exams. I have also prepared students for exams in electronics at A level.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have a recent and Enhanced DBS.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I offer online tutoring using Skype and a web based shared whiteboard. Tutees will need a web cam and microphone along with a broadband connection. Skype can be downloaded free. No other software is required because the interactive whiteboard is web based.
Where and with whom did you train?
My teacher training (PGCE) was undertaken at Nottingham University and in a neighbouring state school. I was offered positions in both the maths and physics departments of this school at the conclusion of my teaching practice.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Whilst I can offer a formal structured programme of tutorials I also recognise that tutees often want a more flexible approach - perhaps wanting to cover particular topics within the syllabus that they find challenging as and when they arise in their school/college work. Whatever the circumstances, my aim is always to respond to the individual needs of my tutees. As an experienced classroom teacher I know that this is not always possible in a busy and large classroom setting but in the context of one-to-one tuition it is a major advantage and one that can make private tuition a very productive and stimulating experience for the tutee. Exam technique is always a hot topic particularly in the run up to mocks or the final examinations. I help my tutees identify which techniques to use and how to apply them and with a little patience it is great to see progress in their performance as their confidence grows.
