About Me

Hello! I was educated in Northern Ireland to GCSE and A-Level standard, after which I gained an honours degree in Actuarial Mathematics and Statistics before my post-graduate teaching qualification in Scotland. I gained a Masters in Education in 2014 so as to learn more about successful teaching practices in order to have an even better understanding of different teaching theories, and ultimately become a better teacher.

Tutor Experience

I have been teaching since 2006 in Edinburgh Scotland, Bermuda and now Germany. I am also an IB examiner (since 2011) so understand the best techniques for students to achieve highest marks. I love inspiring students about mathematics!

I like to explain ideas methodically and with real world examples so as to try and enhance understanding. I have experience teaching online using a padlet so students can see exactly what I write. I have experience in teaching IB maths - DP and MYP as well as A-level, IGCSE, SAT and have plenty of past papers that we can work through.

Topic Expertise

IB Maths - AA SL and HL - papers 1, 2 and 3. I am an examiner for paper 1.
IB Maths - AI SL and HL - papers 1, 2 and 3.
A-level mathematics - P1, P2, P3 and P4. S1 and S2.
IGCSE - I have experience teaching and tutoring both the Edxcel and Cambridge curriculum.
IB MYP Mathematics - both standard and extended level. I have e-assessment papers dating back to 2016.

Testimonials

Emely - DP2 AI SL: Hi Richard, I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the help you have provided over these months, you have seriously been irreplaceable and helped me gain my confidence in maths. My two tests overall went decent, paper 2 was better than paper 1, but still so much better than I ever could have imagined, not just for my grade but also the way I understand math, you have helped to me realise why things are used or done a specific way rather than just memorise steps so thank you!!!!!

Jennifer - DP AA Mathematics: Hi Richard, I know it’s been quite a while but I just wanted to say thank you so much for your help over the last 2 years. It made a huge difference and I’m really grateful for your support. I ended up scoring a high 5 in maths and I’m really happy with it!
