« Mr Nicolson was an excellent Maths teacher who provided private tuition for our son during 2014. These tutoring sessions were very helpful in him achieving good grades in A level Maths & Further Maths as well as STEP exams. Mr Nicolson was punctual, communicated very well and was very pleasant and helpful. He will be of great help to A level Maths students trying to achieve good grades and also performing competitively in university entrance exams like STEP, MAT etc." Amar & Jyothi »

Don - Eckington - Maths

Methodology

I enjoy helping students to achieve their potential and to understand mathematics. As exam results are crucial, I concentrate on past exam papers and will pass on tips for maximising marks.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Mathematics from A level (including Further Maths), up to University level (especially Pure Maths). I have given tuition for the Maths STEP exams for entrance to Cambridge or Warwick, the MAT papers for entrance to Imperial and Oxford, Edexcel's Mathematics Advanced Extension Award (AEA) and also the Open University courses MST121 and MS221. I have also assisted several tutees with the QTS Numeracy test.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Double Maths A-Level, Double Maths S-Level,
MA (Cambridge) in Pure & Applied Mathematics
PhD (Imperial): Algebra

- How much do you charge?

I reserve the right to charge extra for distances over 5 miles. I would offer a 50% reduction for a 2nd student.

- Where do you teach?

I can offer tuition at my own home (Eckington) or at the student's home. Nearby places include Sheffield, Chesterfield, Dronfield, Worksop, Mansfield, Staveley, Rotherham.

- When are you available?

Any time.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

A-level Maths; A-level Maths Further Maths; tuition for STEP, MAT or AEA papers; University level Pure Maths (especially Algebra).
