Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I first started offering private GCSE maths tuition around 20 years ago whilst researching my PhD. I found it to be very rewarding, and quickly realised that I could make a real difference to my pupil's exam grades.

I taught mathematically based subjects as a senior university lecturer for 7 years prior to offering private maths tuition on a full-time basis. Whilst teaching at university I often taught those students that struggled with their maths, and so over time, I developed effective techniques for helping pupils overcome their fear of maths.

I explain the often abstract concepts of maths using easy to understand jargon-free language and have a relaxed and informal approach to tuition. This helps to create a no-pressure environment where students do not feel judged and are able to feel comfortable asking questions.

As an author and marker of exam scripts I have the experience to help my students to approach their own exams in a more effective manner. I have also worked for the Open University and so am experienced with the concept of distance and e-learning and so also offer online tuition.

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

I have an enhanced DBS certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

University of Mancester

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) Member of the University and College Union (UCU) Member of the European Federation of Engineering Associations (Eur Ing) Chartered Engineer (CEng) Member of the Instution of Mechanical Engineers (MIMechE)

Very helpful. Introduced me to find quick ways to solve mental math problems. Highly recommended.

Steven taught me lots of short cuts to speed up my maths, especially mental maths. I found him to be very patient. Having failed the QTS maths the first time, I only required 5 lessons from Steven to get me through. I passed the test today!
