- Do you have a personal message for students?
So many people seem to have very negative experiences with maths. They describe it in terms of frustration, boredom, distress, anxiety and even trauma. People often have really strong feelings about it.
Working with the belief that maths is something that everyone can learn to do and that we can control and therefore develop our maths intelligence, I provide specialist one to one help with maths.
Starting from wherever you are now and working to build your knowledge and confidence at your own pace, we can work together to overcome the psychological learning blocks and help you move towards becoming both competent and confident in learning maths.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch for more information about any of the above
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching maths for a number of years now, working with adults and children, particularly those for whom school maths classes were not a positive learning experience. I have taught small classes and groups as well as one-to-one lessons.
I specialise in working with those who don't (or didn't) fit easily into the school system or who struggle with working in ways that are expected in their school.
I work with a number of home educated children as well as those who are attending school and adults who did not get on well at school.

I am a member of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme for children and vulnerable adults (Scottish version of DBS)

Personal Construct Psychology Association (PCPA)
