- Do you have a personal message for students?
Success in Mathematics requires good core skills, and an ability to understand and solve problems. (Often specific types of problem appear in exam papers.) Practice is essential to building mathematics skills, and you can learn techniques that will help you improve. I have much experience in helping students to improve their understanding and grades.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I worked as a consultant for most of my career and then retrained to teach Mathematics from 11 to 18. For the past 8 years, I have worked in schools and a 6th Form College, and am very familiar with the demands of A level, GCSE and IB Diploma Mathematics. I work with students to help them improve their basic maths skills and to interpret exam questions accurately, so that they can maximise their marks. I have a wide variety of materials available that I can draw upon to assist with learning.

Yes. This was last renewed in September 2015.
- Where and with whom did you train?
I completed my PCGE in Mathematics at King's College, London
Janet tutored both of my daughters last academic year. My elder daughter was taking the IB Diploma and needed to improve her grade in Mathematics. Janet helped her achieve an excellent mark (a high 6, nearly a 7) and increased her confidence in this subject. Janet also helped my younger daughter achieve an A* at GCSE.
I was new to the country and needed to obtain grade A in GCSE Maths for my Uni entry requirements. I wouldn't have got it without Janet's help.
