- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I tutor maths at GCSE, A-level and beyond.

I have a Double First in maths from Oxford University.
- How much do you charge?
Price depends on the level, and whether the tutorials will be at my premises in Charminster or from the comfort of your own home. As a rough guide, my 2018 hourly rate is £45. Please note contary to the default Superprof settings I do not offer a free first class, but am happy to arrange a free no-obligation meeting before setting up any tutorials.
- Where do you teach?
Either from my premises in Charminster, Bournemouth, or from your own home. I'm usually happy to travel to you if you live within a few miles of Charminster BH8 including Bournemouth, Boscombe, Winton and Moordown, and I may be able to travel to you if you're in Southbourne, Westbourne, Poole, Iford and Christchurch.
- When are you available?
Monday to Friday 9.30am - 8.30pm. I'm also available during school holidays.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach A-level including statistics, mechanics and Further maths, the mathematical parts of various University degrees including Computer Animation and Applied Tech at Bournemouth University, and occasionally Higher level GCSE from year 10 onwards.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I'm passionate about maths, have the experience and qualifications to deliver top class tuition, and believe maths should be fun! Please do get in touch just to have a chat about your requirements, or to set up a (free) no obligation meeting face to face.
Barney is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been tutoring part time since leaving University, and full time for the last eight years. At Primary level I also perform "Barney Bay's House Of Maths" - fun maths shows to inspire and educate, entertain and motivate.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Do you belong to any professional organisations?
Royal Institute's STEM Directory.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
At most times of the year I have a good mix of clients, from Adult Numeracy students, and GCSE students looking for the all-important 'C' grade, up to A-level students (usually at least half of my clients are studying A-level maths), and University Undergraduates struggling with statistics, quantitative methods or algebraic economics.

Barney is an amazing maths tutor. You cannot help but be inspired by Barney's enthusiasm and energy, which are infectious and tremendously motivating. Not only did Barney give Tom the skills and confidence to pass his exams, which meant that he got a place at Amsterdam University, but he also made Tom's lessons interesting; he actually enjoyed doing maths at 8pm on a weekday night!
After speaking to Barney we have never looked back! He has a great method of teaching, with a kind nature and positive approach. Charlotte's confidence has increased dramatically thanks to Barney and she has now gone on to study 'A' level Maths at sixth Form.
My University course requires a heavy understanding of maths ranging from matrices, algebra, trigonometry, set theory, vectors etc. Not only was Barney able to get me from a GCSE level of understanding of maths to achieving a first (the highest grade) for my maths exam, but he was able to do so in a clear and concise way. I would also leave with great notes to review and revise with.
Sorry for the delay in sharing my news at passing my Maths Exam - Yay! Thankyou so much for your support, I couldn't have done it without you. Carrying the 'gremlins of maths' all my life, although I hate to admit - I actually started to enjoy it!
From the very start Barney made a difference - his positive approach and calm teaching style made our daughter feel comfortable and at ease, and within a few weeks we could already see a huge improvement. Our daughter passed her retake and achieved the 'C' grade needed for her to apply to University.
Thankyou, Barney, for all your top class tuition and helping me on my way to A* glory!!
Let me say I really appreciate all your commitment with the maths sessions we've had, and more importantly the time you've put in outside of sessions to grasp the material. You've really helped me a lot these few years and for that I am very thankful.
Barney was the one who helped me achieve my goals in A-level maths. Sessions are always of the utmost quality, and you always leave with a giant sense of satisfaction. Even now at University, whenever I need any form of maths help, Barney is my first point of contact. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any of my friends, as I have already done in the past.
Thank you very much for the tutoring over the past year or so. Without it I am sure I would not have stood a chance at the seemingly impossible "1 Year A-Level" but now feel reassuringly confident of success!
W. GREENWOOD achieved 'B' grade at A-level and a place at Cardiff University after just 10 months' study (not recommended!) 2010-11.
