Personal Message
I have been teaching Mathematics since 1983; it is a great job and I hope to inspire many more students to achieve success in this wonderful subject.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach Mathematics and Further Mathematics, including Mechanics and Statistics.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I am a Bachelor of Science (Mathematics, Imperial College, London), an Associate of the Royal College of Science (Imperial College, London) and hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Mathematics, Institute of Education, London).
What kind of experience do you have?
I worked for 8 years in comprehensive schools in London and Sussex, followed by 9 years in an independent school in Sussex, followed by 6 years as a supply teacher and private tutor in Sussex (also working as an examiner for AQA, Edexcel, IB and CIE while my children were very young), followed by a year in a comprehensive school in Brighton, and concluding with 8 years in an independent school in Surrey. I relocated to Merseyside In September 2015 and am currently an Assistant Examiner for Cambridge Assessment on the panels for International Additional Maths O Level and A Level.
How much do you charge?
My fee is £30 per hour after an initial, free consultation.
Where do you teach?
I teach at the students' homes but do not charge for travel. I am happy to go anywhere in Sefton, especially Ainsdale, Formby and Southport.
When are you available?
I am available throughout the day on Wednesdays and Thursdays and am happy to work during school holidays.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach secondary school and college students aged 16+.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I specialise in preparing students for A Level examinations.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have an up-to-date DBS Certificate (December 2015).
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I was a member of the Mathematical Association for many years and have recently joined the Liverpool Mathematical Society. I am also a member of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL).
Where and with whom did you train?
I am originally from Liverpool but left to go to university to study Mathematics in London, where I also trained to be a teacher. After a long career "down South", latterly as Induction Tutor to a dozen newly qualified teachers, I have returned to the North West to continue with my passion: teaching Maths!
Do you have a personal message for students?
It's not about ability, it's about hard work; believe in yourself, don't give up and you will succeed. There's plenty of room at the top!
