Over 90% of my students pass their Maths exams achieving their desired grades, and often even higher

Methodology

I have spent 30 years researching how to teach Maths to students in a language they can understand, making their learning experience both simple and enjoyable. Instead of explaining Maths, I help them to see the ‘physical’ world as it really is and relate Maths to all they encounter in their ‘day-to-day’ lives. This helps them accept Maths and see for themselves just how important and relevant it is. Completely’ in-line’ with the UK Maths syllabi, my proven methods help overcome the natural unwillingness of the brain to understand Maths and create a natural balance to learn.
After just a few lessons my students’ understanding of Maths grows and it starts making sense to them and, in due course, becomes second nature. I promise that within a few weeks’ Maths will no longer be a headache in your family and will be just another important subject to pass.

I offer a range of tuition packages ranging from one-to one teaching, either in person or online, plus membership to my forum where students have unlimited participation.
I also offer a referral scheme for friends and family.

Experience

I have been teaching Maths to students aged 6 years old through to SATs, GCSE, ‘A’ levels and Adults for 8 years in the UK. My teaching experience is broad and includes working at North Hertfordshire College teaching Maths to students with autism and learning and emotional difficulties, private tutoring to students up to ‘A’ level and teaching in schools in Russia. I also taught Applied Maths, Dynamics, Gear Transmissions (Gear Geometry and Dynamics) to undergraduates and postgraduates at UK Universities.
