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.
I have been teaching for 13 years both in Edinburgh Scotland as well as Bermuda. I am currently the Head of my Department in the school that I teach at and 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. I am an IB examiner so understand best techniques for students to achieve highest marks! I love calculus, algebra and even some statistics!
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 and 2.
IB MYP mathematics - SL and Extended. I have a wealth of past papers at my disposal.
thank you :)
you muted yourself at the end but I just wanted to say goodbye and thank you for everything! This was probably our last lesson (due to the fact that I don't have math anymore after Tuesday) so truly, thank you :)
extremely helpful. Teaches me mathematical knowledge, skills and context, allowing me to enjoy maths even more :)
Excellent teacher !
Really helpful and great at explaining things in multiple ways to help understanding
Great help with logarithms and difficult exam questions
thanks so much for all of the help! You are really nice and when I dont understand something you make sure I get it. I also like how open you are to anything that I want to learn that lesson day, even if it comes quickly or out of the blew. :)
Really good class. Managed to smooth out some of my challenges with vectors.
great support and help
Felix - AASL Mathematics Thank you for all of your help. Felix is so much more relaxed and confident about his maths now - you have really empowered him. You were the fourth tutor we tried, so this is truly a reflection of your skill as an educator. Thank you
Vasco - DP2 AI Mathematics: I want to thank you so much for helping me a lot in math. I was able to get a 5 which I was very happy about. Because of your amazing classes, I will recommend your classes to my maths teacher
Patrick- Mathematics: Hey Richard! I just wanted to give you the good news. I passed my math test with an 85!!! So I got an 85 on the final. I finished the class with a B-. I just wanted to say thank you for all of your help. I'm also taking Calculus next semester so you might have to help me again if you're available. Once again thank you so much!!!
David - DP2 Maths AA: Helo Richard! Long time no see! I am very excited to let you know that my IB results came back and I got a 7 in math!!!! I am so happy and excited! I wanted to let you know again how great of a teacher you were and thank you for helping me achieve my goal! 05-07 12
