I adjust my online sessions to the needs of each student. I have an extensive variety of materials that can help students aged from 10-19.
My method of teaching is honed to encourage students develop their confidence in Mathematics as well as their enjoyment.
I provide homework exercises with regular feedback to encourage practise. Daily WhatsApp contact available.
I will regularly provide assessment, both formative and summative, always with productive feedback and revision advice.
I use a variety of teaching aids such as PowerPoint, excel, board work, video, word, maths software, etc.
I have a BSc in Civil Engineering from the University of Glasgow and a PDGE in Mathematics. I have taught for roughly 30 years in Scotland (almost 20 years as Head of Mathematics) and tutored outside of school throughout all of this time. Every student I tutored has gone on to surpass their expectations and secure the grade they required. Each following their own path, but most going on to achieve degree status in various disciplines (Doctors, Vets, Engineers, Economists, Business analysts, Educationalists, Theatre and Drama, Scientists, Linguists, Opticians and many more). One former student got in touch two weeks ago to thank me for my guidance and support many years ago and that having just completed his PhD he is now working for Cambridge University.
As a teacher and a tutor I work hard to put the student at ease, lessen their apprehension towards Mathematics and encourage them in every aspect to allow their confidence to flourish.
I charge £30 pw for Nat 5 and below, £35pw for higher and £40pw for Advanced Higher and 1st year University level. My bulk sessions also differ. I based the ones advertised on the lower rate. Depending on the needs of the student I am happy to give a one hourly (always lasts longer) session per week or two shorter (35-40 min) sessions. I have found the two shorter sessions to be very productive as the student doesn't have to wait as long to address issues that arise as the week goes by. I also make myself available out with session time for short consultations to fix small misunderstandings and thus allow confidence to grow.
A natural teacher and ‘math-head’ who easily connects with students and tailors lessons to appropriate age and level, patiently developing confidence by explaining and working through math concepts and their application from the simplest to most complex. Great to have your knowledge and expertise in these very challenging times for students and parents.
Martin is a greater tutor who took me from failing maths to achieving an A in my higher exam. He is very patient and great at explaining tricky maths concepts. I had shorter sessions twice a week with Martin which helped push me on in maths and whenever I was stuck or had any questions Martin was always available through WhatsApp to help me out.
Martin is a very experienced, senior level teacher in mathematics he uses this knowledge and experience to provide proficient tutoring. He is able to make mathematics accessible for all by being responsive to individual learning needs and academic level. He is engaging and uses different techniques to make the learning experience both meaningful and enjoyable; building learners knowledge and confidence in the subject. Highly recommended.
Martin is a great tutor who supported 2 of my children who were struggling with both their maths and self confidence. Martin’s calm, caring manner means kids engage well with him and his sense of humour also wins the kids ( and parents) over
Martin has helped me in my studies throughout. Unlike many Teachers he has assisted my studies and describes everything in Mathematics in simple terms. I now eventually understand Alegebra, formulas ,signs as well as Statistics. He is always available and is very considerate.
I've met many Tutors however he is the best.
I reccomend him to everyone.
Great guy, explains things clearly and methodically. Gives praise when you successfully begin to understand his lessons. Would definitely recommend.
He makes new topics understandable instead of intimidating, and works to find out how you learn best! He's funny and always keeps the lessons engaging too!
Martin has tutored my two eldest children through their required high school mathematic courses.
His patience and willingness to find ways in which to engage with a newly diagnosed dyslexic, (and very unhappy), son, were second to none.
He's been really patient and helpful. He interacts and ensures that what he's taught has sunk in rather than just handing out homework like some other tutors I have used, Really made a difference!
Martin has directly taught Maths to my two sons and was further involved in their teaching as head of Maths Department through their 6 years in secondary. Both found him to be a highly supportive, likeable and enthusiastic Maths teacher who cared about their learning (and them as students). Both sons went on to university In maths-heavy courses. Eldest got his 1st Class Honours Degree this year. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Martin for tuition.
