- Do you have a personal message for students?

I promise the lessons will be painless and fun, although the homework might not be.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I taught Maths and Computing in London schools for over 12 years, half of that time as head of department, before movng into industry. Now retired, I returned in 2012 to my first love: teaching. Since then I have had excellent results helping those who have asked for help to achieve thier potential. I was also an A-level examiner in Mechanics.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes: July 2018.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I did my PGCE at Cambridge, with teaching practice at the Perse School.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Association of Teachers of Mathematics

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have worked with a wide range of people from someone struggling with GCGE via many A-level students to a woman needing with help with a Statistics module in her Psychology MA. One young woman in year 13 was doing Further Maths, but her school had only been able to fit in one evening lesson per week. After her results, she posted: "I never would have been able to get my A* in Further Maths A2 without his help! Had loads of good methods for doing things and showed me the relevance of what I was learning. This helped me to remember it and apply it in unfamiliar questions. Most of all he reminded me that Maths is fun! Thank you very much."

Martin's CV

Personal Description:

I went to Cambridge to do a Maths degree with Management Studies in my final year in order to gain an understanding of how Maths could be applied in a business context. I stayed on to gain my PGCE. I taught for 12 years and then moved, initially as a trainer, into IT where I have worked in a number of software companies, large and small. For much of this time I have been a manager of technical professionals and software architects.
I live in Surbiton, am married to a teacher and we have two children, one still in further education, one is a doctor.

Teaching Experience:

I taught in the London area for 12 years, the first 3 years in a grammar school and later in a comprehensive where I became Head of Department and introduced Computer Studies to the school when the subject was in its infancy. I was an examiner for several years in A-level Applied Mathematics.

I started tutoring on retirement from industry in 2012 and have since worked with a range of candidates studying GCSE, A-level, Open University, IB, STEP and the QTS numeracy test. Also, through helping both my children to As in their Maths GCSE and A-levels and also just being in the same house as them, I have a good understanding of the demands on today's students as well as the difficulty in helping your own children.

Tutoring Approach:

I love Maths and I like to make that passion infectious. Irrespective of age and ability, through coaching, I aim to create a virtuous circle where confidence brings success which then brings enjoyment. At the same time, what used to be confusing becomes clearer and simpler. I am good at assessing my tutees’ strengths and weaknesses and creating a personal plan which builds confidence and stretches ability.
