Retired data analyst who holds three degrees to MSc level, and DBS cleared, offers private maths tuition for children and adults up to A level.

Methodology

I first want to give the student a view of the landscape of a particular topic. For instance, I would not introduce algebra by drilling how to simplify quadratic fractions. Instead, I would spend some time demonstrating how algebra is used to solve real world problems. The analogy I sometimes use is that one doesn't introduce architecture to a student by delving into the details of how bricks are made.

Once I have the student engaged, my focus is on ensuring they have a working understand of principles and techniques. I then emphasise the importance of practice. Many students feel they need to memorise formulae and particular results; I discourage them from explicit memorisation and assure them that regular practice of methods and techiques will build a "muscle memory". The analogy I use for this is playing a musical instrument, I have other activites up my sleeve for the non-musical.

Experience

Originally an electrical engineer, I switched to data analysis after completing an MMath and an MSc in Statistics. I am now semi-retired and am free to pursue my wish of teaching maths and statisitics to upcoming generations. This has been a long held desire.

Philip's CV

MSc in Statisitics from University College London: inferential statisitics, statistical methods and models, regression methods, statisitical computing, time series analysis;

MMath from The Open University, quantum mechanics, electromagmetism, statisitics;

BSc in Mathematical Sciences from The Open University: pure mathematics, applied mathematics, group theory, complex analysis, number theory and logic.

I worked as an electrical engineer and facilities manager in south-east England for over twenty years. Following this, I migrated to data anlysis and worked within the aerospace industry.

I devote much of my spare time to improving my greenwood carving skills. I enjoy quizzes and am a former heat winner on BBC’s Mastermind. I strum the ukulele and am striving to learn clawhammer banjo; I am also an active member of a local folk club. I also enjoy reading, gardening and exercising my Tibetan terrier.

He is a highly qualified, multi-talented person, with a great sense of humour, a wonderful Dad and Grandad with lots of patience.
