Teaching Approach

I would like my students to understand the logic behind mathematical applications and not just memorise the mechanics of solving exercises. I aim to make Mathematics something interesting, intriguing, useful, challenging and fun. I aim to enable the students to develop a useful tool for them to use throughout their life. My lessons are planned and structured based on the National Curriculum and the respective key stage requirements and programmes of study. I keep a weekly progress sheet for each student for monitoring progress through the tutoring sessions.

Personal Interests

I’ve always enjoyed Mathematics and I love explaining it. I have been giving Math tuition since I was a student at University, this was some 35 years ago, when I use to participate in National and International Math competitions. I am a fully qualified Chartered Engineer and have applied my mathematical skills in engineering for most of my career. I combine 35 years of practical ( engineering) and theoretical ( mathematics)  experience in my teaching methods.
