After over 30 years of professional life in the world of finance, I have for the last few years been offering tutoring in Maths at KS2, KS3 and GCSE level. I am also available for tutoring in areas such as Economics and Finance. For the last 18 months I have been working as a lecturer at Nottingham Trent University’s Business School, delivering a range of Finance modules to both undergraduate and postgraduate students.
I am passionate about helping young people learn, and develop to meet their potential, and aim to deliver teaching in an engaging and friendly fashion, students learn more effectively with a smile on their face.
I always ensure that I am well prepared for every lesson, with a range of materials available for every student. I tailor my lessons to the specific requirements of the student, responding to their thoughts on areas where help is needed, as well as covering the broader curriculum.
A solid understanding of Maths arms students to succeed across a wide range of academic disciplines.
I aim to provide material in advance of the lesson to allow preparation time.
I take care to make sure that every student feels confident and prepared for their exams. When practising exam questions, we focus on areas that they can develop techniques to achieve clarity of thought, and a stress-free approach in the examination room.
Not just a Maths tutor and Lecturer, I am also Chair of Governors at Ashbourne primary School, and coach a local Junior Football Club (as well as Dad to a 16 year old).
As the preparation for their GCSE year, KS3 is an important time to consolidate strong foundations in Maths. My aim at this level is to boost a student’s confidence and encourage them to take risks, only by being brave and creative can they push themselves to greater heights ,developing the skills required for GCSE and beyond.
