Philip Singleton: Maths Tutor for Common Entrance, KS3, KS4, GCSE and A-Level in the Cobham area.

Methodology

My first job was actually as a Mathematician - in the nuclear industry. I have since used my mathematical skills in all sorts of ways in other industries. Maybe I can explain "why" it's useful to know some of this stuff, as well as "how".

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Mathematics

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a 1st class honours degree in Mathematics from Imperial College, London. I am also a Member of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (MIMA), and a Chartered Mathematician (C Math).

- How much do you charge?

£35 (£40 for A-Level) per hour in the KT11 area or online. Please note that I do not normally charge for travel.

- Where do you teach?

I prefer to teach at students' homes, but tuition can be done at my house. I can easily get to Cobham, Stoke d'Abernon, Oxshott, Fetcham, Bookham and Leatherhead in Surrey. I can also teach online.

- When are you available?

Most of the time.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Secondary school age, including Key Stage 3 and Common Entrance, GCSE and A level.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I can tutor online using the Twiddla whiteboard tool, which allows the student and tutor to share the computer screen and chat. The student must have a PC and microphone/speakers connected. A webcam can provide this, but Twiddla does not use the video - this is an important safeguarding control.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

Many years of applying mathematics in industry. I have children of my own who have been through the educational system, including university. I am now coaching students at Key Stage 3 (including Common Entrance), GCSE and A level (including Cambridge Pre-U). I also provide Tuition Services to a local Secondary School.

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

Yes, as at March 2014.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a Member of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I am currently tutoring students of mixed abilities across Key Stage 3, GCSE and A level. This includes Common Entrance, GCSE Foundation and Higher to year 10 and 11 students; I am teaching the new A level (with Mechanics and Statistics) to year 12 and 13 students. I visit a local secondary school three times a week to coach groups of students at GGSE. I also have one student ONLINE!
Two of my students have dyspraxia.

Philip has increased George's confidence in maths and helped him to understand topics which he was finding tricky within the GCSE syllabus. I would not hesitate in recommending Philip and I'm sure George will be back once he starts his A levels!"
