What kind of experience do you have?
I have been a part-time professional tutor since 2006, and have taught over 100 students since then, mostly on extended courses leading to exams. I have a Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (DTLLS), and have experience teaching international students and business professionals.
How much do you charge?

Where do you teach?
Usually from home in Ludlow. In special circumstances I travel to students' homes, usually for extended lessons (2 hours or more).

Monday to Saturday. From Monday to Thursday during term time I am generally available from 3pm, Friday from 4pm, and on Saturdays & outside term from 10 am.

From 11 upwards (including adults) for scholarships/common entrance, GCSE, A-level and University level.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I prepare students for entrance/scholarship exams, GCSE, IGCSE and A-levels.
At University level my subjects are Engineering (most branches) and any technical subjects.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes (2012).
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I offer a service where a student sends me questions by email. I prepare detailed worked solutions to the questions and notes for the student's reference. I also provide written critiques to a student's own worked solutions sent by email. This service must be pre-arranged with the student well in advance.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
Society for Education and Training, Institute of Mechanical Engineers, Association of Christian Teachers.
Where and with whom did you train?
Cambridge University BA & MA in Engineering
Teacher training at Ludlow College, where I now work part-time.
Do you have a personal message for students?
My principle is summed up as "Solving a problem simply means representing it so as to make the solution transparent" (H A Simon). I aim to give students the confidence to take ownership of their own learning, and provide them with the techniques to do themselves justice in exams.
