Christine - Belper - Astronomy

Methodology

I do not give a free first lesson, in spite of what the web says.

I am a retired teacher of physics and mathematics, and have worked as a private tutor since retirement. I call myself Christine's Maths & Physics Tuition. I tutor because I love doing it.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

A level physics, maths and further maths
GCSE maths, physics and science
KS2 and KS3 maths and science
Undergraduates needing help with maths - business, accountancy, engineering

- Tell me about your qualifications.

B Sc in physics at Manchester.
Studied mathematics with the Open University and gained a BA

- How much do you charge?

From £32 to £36 per hour, depending on level. For online students, payment by bank transfer (UK) or Paypal.
Primary £32 per hour.
Secondary (up to GCSE) £34 per hour.
A level £36 per hour.

- Where do you teach?

I live in the Amber Valley area of Derbyshire, and I travel to students in Belper, Duffield, Derby, Ripley, Heanor, Alfreton and nearby villages. Please contact me if you are unsure of the area I cover. I also tutor online.

- When are you available?

Any time. Most of my teaching is in the evenings and at weekends, but I am available in the daytime, Monday to Friday. I may not be available at a particular time if a student has already booked that time. I am almost fully booked for evenings and weekends, now but have time available during the day.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

8 to 18+

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Mainly A level and GCSE. I also work with students at KS2 and KS3. I have worked with first year undergraduates in accountancy, business and finance and engineering, who needed help with maths.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I use either Skype or Zoom, and Scribblar, an online whiteboard. Both student and tutor can write on this. I have worked with students in Europe, North Africa, India and China.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have over 25 years teaching experience, working in grammar, comprehensive and independent schools and an FE college. I have taught students from the age of 8 to 60. I did not want to stop teaching when I retired, so I have worked as a private tutor since then. I have also worked as an A level examiner.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, a member of the Association of Teachers of Mathematics, and a member of the Tutors Association.

Christine was recommended by word of mouth. My daughter lacked confidence, despite being good at maths. Christine has given her the confidence to tackle GCSE Additional Maths in Year 11. We also decided to have physics tuition - money well spent.

M
Mrs S D

My son was struggling with some maths concepts. He has gone from a middle of the road student to a confident lad almost top of his maths class.

J
James

Maths tuition with Christine has definitely helped me improve my grades at GCSE and AS. Christine is really good at explaining difficult concepts and preparing for exams

M
Mrs D

Every child benefits from one to one tuition. The key is to find the tutor who connects with the individual child. Christine has done this with my son and provided first class tuition in Maths and Science over the past 4 years supporting GCSE and A Levels

M
Mr & Mrs W

Christine provided the one-to-one help tailored to meet our children's specific needs. Her experience and access to additional resources proved to be very useful for exam preparation. Christine has most definitely helped to bring out their potential in both physics and mathematics.
