PGCE-qualified maths tutor with a unique system to minimize study time and maximize results.

Methodology

I like to teach one on one. I like my students to tell me what they think is required so I can gently point them in the right direction. I also show them a methodology in which frequent brief revision eliminates the need for mind-boggling swotting at exam time.

Experience

I am a mainframe IT professional, managing, analyzing and programming in COBOL and IDEAL/DATCOM, as well as a qualified Maths tutor.

I have tutored maths for 3 years and have had 20 students. All of them passed after struggling initially and many went on to take science degrees.

PERSONAL STATEMENT

I am currently doing freelance writing on the Internet. Topics range from esoteric via health and personal development to IT and business. I have extensive experience of writing for SEO and have done some copy writing for web pages on various topics, of which I find business and technology the most interesting.

I spent 2 years tutoring Maths at Kip McGrath in Kloof, Durban, South Africa. This involved working with pupils from junior school level tight up to grade 12.. I evolved a study meyhodology which enabled pupils who used it to minimise revision time during exams and increase understanding and retention of the work.

I worked at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and the Guardian and Santam short term insurance companies in South Africa doing Cobol and Ideal/Datacom, as well as on accounting systems generally, including installing and supporting Evolution, an accounting package.
