For GCSE Maths and QTS Numeracy, I explain the maths in understandable terms and give confidence to my students to pass the exam.
For French, I enable my students to speak and hear French with understanding, using no textbooks.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach Maths to GCSE level,
QTS Numeracy and
French to any level.
I can also help with strategies for teaching Primary School Maths.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a B.A.degree from London University in Maths, French and Psychology.
I also have a Post Graduate Certificate of Education from Bristol University, for teaching Maths and French.
- How much do you charge?
My fees are £25.00 per hour for individual tuition.
For individual French tuition, I recommend only 30 minutes for beginners, as it is requires more sustained concentration, which will then increase quite naturally as they become more at ease with the language. My charge would then be £13.00
- Where do you teach?
I teach at the home of my students and, residing in the Reading area, i am prepared to travel up to 30 minutes from my home.
- When are you available?
I am available Monday to Friday at any time of the day or early evening. I will do the occasional Saturday daytime appointment for emergencies only.

I am able to teach Maths from 11 plus to GCSE.
Also, QTS Numeracy Skills for Trainee Teachers and Adult Numeracy.
In French, I am able to teach French conversation from a complete beginner to complete fluency.
I am also able to give ideas for teaching strategies in Primary school maths.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
GCSE Maths & French
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I am able to help you understand and have confidence in your Maths and, if you wish to hold a conversation in French. I can help that happen as well.
Graham 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 taught in Secondary Schools in England for over twenty years and I have also taught in an Engineering College in France.
Currently I have my own business tutoring in Maths and French.
My testimonials will show how successful my clients are in achieving their aims.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
My DBS Certificate has expired since I no longer work in schools, as I care for my partner in Reading.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
Currently I am tutoring students for GCSE Maths Papers. They are of varying abilities and all develop confidence with my tuition and support, finding that a good grade in GCSE Maths is at last attainable.
I also tutor QTS Numeracy Skills for Trainee Teachers, helping recapture lost calculating skills and learning exam techniques peculiar to the QTS Numeracy tests.
As for French, I teach people, without using a textbook, to be able to hold a conversation, speaking and listening, when they previously have found this impossible. Now, they find it so much easier and they are amazed.
Please view my testimonials to see the success of my clients.
Josh is absolutely flying. The teacher said he can't ask anymore from him, he is doing so well and feels he should go up a set in September. He said if you need any papers to work on with Josh, he is happy to send Josh home with some. I did say I thought you already did this anyway. He said a lot of teachers don't approve of tutors, but he said what you are doing with Josh is working obviously.
I find the system that Graham uses to teach French very good. My conversational French has improved much quicker by using the lanuage in an everyday situation, rather than the method of trying to follow a book, with sections which have no relevance to what I need to learn.
Hi Graham, I should have texted you a while ago and have to just found your card! I passed my QTS Numeracy test in June and have got into university! I just wanted to say a huge thanks to you and I know I wouldn't have had the confidence to do it without your help! Thank you for everything!
Graham prior tutored our daughter weekly at our home through her GCSE maths coursework and exam revision recently. He was very patient and supportive and boosted her self-confidence which enabled her to pass her exam. I have no hesitation in recommending him for maths tutoring.
Just though i'd drop you a quick note to let you know Jordan got an 'A' grade in his math's GCSE. We are both delighted and know this wouldn't have been possible without your help.
Thank you for all your assistance and support.
Being a little nervous about starting maths again, after having left school two years ago, Graham's patience and clear explanations gave me the confidence and mathematical knowledge to believe in my ability again and to pass my Skills Test exam.
Hiya! It's Salma.I took one tutoring session with you back in June and I wanted to thank you as I found it so helpful and useful and used all the tricks you taught me which helped largely!
Thankfully I passed the maths test and thought I would let you know! Thanks once again.

Just wanted to let you know that I passed this morning. Funnily enough I found the mental part far easier than the calculator part!
