Qualified GCSE maths teacher 9 years experience in Portsmouth. Can also tutor in use of music programming software (Apple Logic) and drum playing/programming!

Methodology

I am a GCSE maths tutor who aims to tailor sessions to the tutee's needs and requirements. Having taught GCSE maths for 9 years I know what you need to know, how you can minimise lost marks and maximise gained marks. I currently have around 10 tutees and regularly contact their teachers to establish specific areas of weakness in order to ensure that these are supported in my sessions. I am friendly and relaxed, and definitely not a stuffy 60+ years old retired teacher and I have a lot of tattoos - I hope this doesn't put you off!

Background

I have taught secondary maths (GCSE) in Portsmouth schools for 9 years, have now been home tutoring for 18 months and have tutored well over 100 hours during that time. I have around 10 regular tutees - foundation and higher - but am looking for more, preferably during 'daytime' hours (9am - 3pm) so adults are welcome!

Outside Interests

I compose & produce music for a number of companies based in London who provide this music to advertising agencies and television companies. I also run a small download label, producing electronic music of various forms which, at present, I run via Bandcamp. This label has released a number of projects produced by myself but also by other artists from the USA, Italy, Greece and Spain. I have produced a number of DJ mixes for radio stations (usually web based streaming sites) and ran an after-school club, teaching a small group of students the skills involved in digital DJing, using a Mac-based Traktor set up.

Whilst music is my real passion I also enjoy cooking, reading biographies and, occasionally, a little creative writing of both fiction and poetry.
