Experienced Secondary Teacher offering Maths Tutoring at any level from Year 7 to A-Level

Methodology

My teaching is normally on a one-to-one basis, or in small groups, to support and develop a student's progress at school, following the curriculum as required. I set appropriately high standards for each student, with the aim to extend their thinking and so improve understanding, but also to enhance confidence at every stage. I am a very amenable and patient tutor, always seeking new ways to explain a topic in an easy, understandable manner, and view 'wrong' answers as a vital learning opportunity.
My teaching methods employ the use of a range of text books, some computer software resources, reference to past exam papers and lots of discussion to gauge understanding at every step.

Experience

I am a married man with a grown-up daughter, and have been living in Harpenden for over 30 years.
I am a Maths teacher with 10 years teaching experience at all levels from KS3 (Year 7) to A-Level Pure Maths and Mechanics in several good and outstanding local schools. I come originally from a previous background in industry both as an engineer and a computer analyst. In addition, I have spent much voluntary time in Scouting which has helped develop a better understanding of how young people develop and respond to situations. I have approximately 25 years experience of part time tutoring in maths and physics to anyone who wishes to improve their abilities or confidence, including both young students and adults, either in the peace and quiet of my own home or, if convenient, in their own home.
