Graham - Plaistow - Maths

Methodology

I am a retired university lecturer with a background in electrical engineering, computer science, and psychology and offer tuition in maths, and science (especially physics).

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I am able to offer maths and physics from primary up to 'A' level, and general science (biology, chemistry, and physics) up to GCSE level. I am familiar with the maths and physics specifications of all the main examination boards (AQA, Edexcel, OCR, OCR (MEI) and WJEC). A number of my students have been following courses in IGCSE Maths or Science or the International Baccalaureate (IB) in Maths or Physics. I can offer tuition in research methods and statistics at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

BSc (Hons) in Electrical Engineering, Imperial College. MS in Electrical Engineering, New York University. PhD in Psychology, Cambridge University.

- How much do you charge?

Travel Fees Up to 5 miles: no charge. From 6 to 10 miles: sliding scale between £2 and £8. I prefer not to travel further than 10 miles, but would not rule out provided session was at least two hours.

- Where do you teach?

I can teach in the student's home, but not at my home at present. I am able to travel to students in SE London, Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich and Kent, within 10 miles of Bromley (BR1 5RF). See above for travel charges above 5 miles. NOTE: During the summer holiday I am not available for in-person tuition but can offer lessons via Skype on weekdays and weekends.

- When are you available?

Weekends (Friday (pm), Saturday (all day) and Sunday (all day) only). NOTE: During the summer holiday I am not available for in-person tuition but can offer lessons via Skype on weekdays and weekends.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Ages: 5 years to adult Levels: KS1 to KS5 + FE/HE

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Skype and email

- Do you have a personal message for students?

My approach is to assess the pupil's needs, strengths, and weaknesses carefully at the outset in order to develop a set of goals based on this assessment. The aim is to provide well-structured and clearly presented instruction, which if the student is able and well-motivated will generally lead to progress. If the pupil is poorly motivated and/or has acquired unhelpful learning habits then may need to vary the approach in order to re-engage their interest and/or find a level at which they can perform successfully, and then build on this accomplishment. For relaxation: I listen to jazz and blues.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have a dual background in Electrical Engineering and Psychology and retired in 2007 after 20 years as a University lecturer. At different stages in my career I taught both Software Engineering/ Artificial Intelligence and Psychology. I have been tutoring (maths, general science (GCSE), physics (A level), ICT, and psychology (A level and University level) since March 2008. My tutees range in age from 6 years to 70+

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

The British Psychological Society (Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow)
