I work through one of the UKCAT question books with the student.
As well as checking and reinforcing numerical proficiency, I explain techniques for extracting and using essential numbers and words.
I also help with analysing, choosing and answering questions for this and other tests to maximise point scores.
I am a Maths graduate with 17 years of experience of teaching and/or tutoring those whose main interests are outside maths and especially those who have had problems with it.
Problem analysis and solving are the main skills where most UKCAT students are weak and so I have made improving those skills a speciality.
Thank you so much for helping me with my maths. I have learned so much
After being locked out from the numeracy skills test, I was determined to pass and try again. I can proudly say that I have passed, this was not possible without Ian's quick methods especially for the Mental Arithmetic section, where I struggled most. Ian was professional and his quick methods, tips and clarity in teaching made me understand the questions and this gave me confidence to try again. I would definitely recommend Ian.
Matt got an A (IGCSE). Delighted beyond words. Thank you so much for all your help.
Ian has given me the confidence, backed up by a better understanding of my subject. My grades have improved already and my teachers at school are very impressed! All thanks to Ian...

Morning Ian. I'm very pleased to tell you that Sam got a 4 which I believe is like a C. We are all thrilled! Thank you again for all your help. He couldn't have done it without you.
R**** achieved a B grade in her 13+ maths paper. Thank you so much for all your support. Her maths teacher has commented that her understanding is much improved. .
What you did for F was nothing short of a miracle. To see his face brought a tear to our eyes.
Ian has just helped me pass my Numeracy Skills Test to get into University.I found him very helpful. He explained well, which made it easier to understand. I would recommend Ian in any form of maths or skills tests.
