I am successful, patient and student centred
I love to help would-be teachers pass this very off-putting test
I show you how to:
Read and interpret maths questions
Use the time available in the mental test to best effect.
Use the numbers in the mental questions to make things quicker
Use a range of shortcuts to further help with timing
We always have a laugh or two.Yes, in a maths lesson!
Ian 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 taught in Further Education colleges and in prisons where students often have considerable maths problems. I therefore fully appreciate the difficulties so many have with handling numbers efficiently.
I explain how to use the numbers in questions to your advantage, I also point out shortcuts, ways of simplifying calculations and the best ways to tackle a range of Part 2 questions
I aim to make maths fun and to break down complicated processes in a way that each student can understand.
My students always increase in confidence and succeed in passing the test.

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...
Emily got her C (IGCSE) and is absolutely delighted. Thank you so much for all your help. You gave her the confidence to pass.
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.
