Highly experienced and award winning teacher

I have 27 years of teaching experience and I still enjoy every lesson. I have led a highly successful department for 16 years and so am up to date with all of the new specification changes for GCSE, iGCSE and A level courses.

I am honoured to have won a secondary teacher of the year award in 2015 recognising my teaching and nurturing of students and staff.

I have just taken early retirement due to illness in my family and so have the flexibility to offer lessons at all times of day.

About me

Reading mathematics at Oxford was a great joy but also a real challenge. I love the subject but I also know what it is like to have hurdles to overcome to get to a new level of understanding.

I learnt to break new content down and improve my grasp of the key building blocks to then help me incrementally, step by step make it to the next level.

I enjoy helping students make that same journey and feel great satisfaction of turning aspirations into reality with material which seems a long way in the distance - become familiar and thoroughly understood.

When I am not teaching maths - I usually out walking my two labradors - Custard and Treacle - along the beach or swimming at the local pool.

Tutor Experience

My school embraced technology and is highly innovative. For the last 10 years in addition to my usual classes - I have also been timetabled to run extra video conferencing lessons in the evenings - helping my school’s students and their parents learn due to popular demand.

I have tutored hundreds of classes and one to one lessons using online software and really appreciate the opportunities of breaking down barriers of distances that the medium allows. It is such a privilege to be able to reach out to students across the globe.

Topic Expertise

A fully proven track record of students reaching their potential in GCSE, iGCSE and A level Mathematics.

I enjoy taking students through the stages of
- a first understanding of the content
- followed by a deeper understanding of being able to apply the content
-and then being prepared through thorough practice of how to use the content backwards for the contexts of examination style questions - focusing on problem-solving and mathematical reasoning.
