What kind of experience do you have?
I first started offering private GCSE maths tuition around 20 years ago whilst researching my PhD. I found it to be very rewarding, and quickly realised that I could make a real difference to my pupil's exam grades.

I offer tuition in secondary level maths to GCSE level.

In addition I also offer specialist tuition in the QTS skills test (numeracy test) for students wanting to become professional teachers.

I taught mathematically based subjects as a senior university lecturer for 7 years prior to offering private maths tuition on a full-time basis. Whilst teaching at university I often taught those students that struggled with their maths, and so over time, I developed effective techniques for helping pupils overcome their fear of maths.

I explain the often abstract concepts of maths using easy to understand jargon-free language and have a relaxed and informal approach to tuition. This helps to create a no-pressure environment where students do not feel judged and are able to feel comfortable asking questions.

As an author and marker of exam scripts I have the experience to help my students to approach their own exams in a more effective manner. I have also worked for the Open University and so am experienced with the concept of distance and e-learning and so also offer online tuition.
How much do you charge?
My rates are £30 for a 1 hour tutoring session.
I also offer 90 minutes for £45..
Where do you teach?
I teach face to face and online. Pupils visit me where I teach from a private studio in Disley.

GCSE pupils are local from the villages of Disley, Bollington, Prestbury, High Lane, Hazel Grove, Poynton, Marple, New Mills, Chapel-en-le-Frith, Chinley, Buxton and Whaley Bridge.

QTS pupils travel throughout south Manchester to me to receive specialist tuition in the QTS numeracy test.

I also have significant experience in online tuition and have tutored students from all over the UK and internationally using this approach.
When are you available?
I am flexible with my availability and can offer weekday/weekend daytime/evenings. My availability is changing on a weekly basis so please enquire for further details - I can usually fit you in to my schedule somewhere!

I have experience working across all age groups from primary to adult learners. I mainly tutor secondary to GCSE maths.

Do you have a personal message for students?
I make sure all my students are competent in the fundamental building blocks of maths first before moving on to more advanced areas where appropriate. I also offer help with exam strategy and note-taking so that pupils have the greatest chance possible of achieving their true potential mark.
