I am a current mathematics teacher in Stafford and an experienced maths tutor. I have worked with hundreds of students to develop their mathematical knowledge, problem solving skills and self-esteem.
I trained to teach at one of the best providers of maths teacher training in the country and gained my initial experience in a range of schools in Exeter, Torquay and Newton Abbott before moving to Stafford where I have taught since. I have continued to offer my services as a tutor throughout this time and have developed my ability to teach and support learners of all abilities at different stages in their learning.

I was struggling to understand all the new topics this year because my teachers style didn't suit me. I wanted to make sure I got in a good set next year and Fin helped me to practice the topics I struggled with. He explained things in a way that I understood and helped me get a really good mark in my end of year test.
I was struggling with a few maths concepts and got a D in my practice tests before coming to Fin. Fin's tutoring provided the clarity and understanding to push me across the line to get the pass that I desired. I cannot recommend Fin highly enough.
Finbarr has been really adaptable to my needs this year. He has provided support in the areas I have struggled to master and given me lots of topic specific resources to help me revise on these areas for my exams. I achieved an A in my AS exams and hope to keep this up with his help in A2 maths.
