Mathematics at a pace to suite you at a chosen mutual date, time and place

Methodology

I try to understand any problems the student is having with aspects of the subject.
The strategy is then to teach technique and methods for understanding and eventually passing examinations and project work. This can be done to suite the students learning style and requirements.

Background

I have been a teacher at University and colleges for over 30 years. In this time I have taught several thousand students in groups, and individually.
At University level I averaged between 4 and 6 firsts every year, and have been successful in achieving improvement of grades privately for personal students so that they gain university entrance etc.
