« David really helped our son with his S5 maths at Intermediate 2 level. Greg had always struggled with the subject and , after his prelim, realised he had a lot of ground to make up. David only worked with him for 2-3 months but went back to basics and made sure he understood concepts then built on them. David was very aware of SQA standards, content and procedures. Greg found David to be very clear and patient when explaining things and grew in confidence so that he achieved a much better pass than we'd dared hope for. A secondary teacher for 20 years myself, I would have no hesitation in recommending him. »

Dave Maths Coach - Retired IT Professional - In Lanark town centre - Nat 5 & Higher

Methodology

I believe in a child-focused approach driven by the pupil’s attitude to the subject matter throughout the course. Early discussion will be focused on the pupil’s needs and required approach. It is important to get the child’s and parents’ buy-in to the approach and content of the tuition experience

Sessions may focus on either basic explanation of maths concepts, exercises or exam type question practice and exam preparation. Sometimes all within one session! The key is to give the child the knowledge and confidence required. From individual sessions and throughout the course.

Experience

Retired IT professional with informal experience in tutoring.

With an Upper Second Class Honours Engineering degree, I have a thorough understanding of Maths required in secondary school.

I have had successful feedback from pupils with whom I have worked, who have felt more confident in Maths lessons and exams, and achieved results required.

I worked with David for many years through work.

David provided Maths tuition to my son for his National 5 Maths and continues to do for Maths Higher. David is an excellent tutor and I would definitely recommend him to others. He is knowledgeable and thorough in his teaching and takes time to ensure that his students are completely happy with their knowledge and understanding of maths topics.

Before David’s involvement, my son lacked confidence in maths and was struggling with some aspects of the course; at that time the expectation was that he would achieve a B/C grade in his National 5 exams. David’s tuition and support helped tremendously both confidence and achievement-wise resulting in him achieving a solid A grade in National 5 Maths.

David’s winning approach of putting a maths topic into the wider context before delving into it more thoroughly worked well for my son. An example of this was when I overheard David start a session by saying “let me tell you a story about circles…” which Tom told me later made this aspect of maths much more interesting and understandable.

David also ensures that my son is provided with a range of extra resources to help him with his revision and preparation for his exams.
