I am a qualified teacher based in St Helens, Merseyside, currently teaching Mathematics and Further Mathematics at a private college. I obtained a 2:1 degree in Pure Mathematics from the University of Liverpool and then completed my PGCE in Secondary Mathematics. I have an enhanced DBS certificate and I am available to tutor A-level Mathematics, A-level Further Mathematics and undergraduate Mathematics. I am able to tutor within a 10 mile radius of St Helens, my hometown, and I am possibly available near Manchester city centre where I work. I am also able to offer online tuition meaning you will need a microphone and internet connection. Online tuition is proving popular with students due to its efficiency and flexibility. Teaching on a one-to-one basis means that the individual needs of the student need to be met. I strive to get the best out of each student and work towards developing the students understanding, allowing them to see the progress they are making and in turn building their confidence. Please note: Further Mathematics A-level is charged at £40 per hour. Most university modules are charged at £40 per hour, although some second and third year modules are £50 per hour depending on the level of difficulty.

I am a currently a Mathematics teacher teaching A-Level and undergraduate Mathematics and Further Mathematics in a private college. I have previously worked in a popular local secondary school and I have taught mathematics at most levels through my career. I have tutored students on a one-to-one basis across most educational levels from entry level right up to undergraduate mathematics and have gained excellent results and feedback. Throughout my teaching experience I have received excellent feedback for the way I provide individual support to my students, allowing them to greater understand what is happening and master mathematical techniques. I have recently completed the MEI courses Teaching Further Mathematics 1 (94%) and Teaching Mechanics 1 (100%) and this year I completed Teaching Further Mathematics 2 (94%) and Teaching Mechanics 2 (91%) which has allowed me to further develop my subject knowledge. I have also worked as an assistant examiner, marking the C2 module for the past three years, alongside the C4 MEI module for the past two years. This year I have marked the International Baccalaureate higher tier and Cambridge International Examination P3 paper.

What is your personal message to students?
Recent feedback: "Graham is a calm professional and reliable tutor. He quickly identified my sons areas of concern and focused on past papers to improve his technique and confidence. Adam enjoyed the sessions and his confidence bounced back. The best news was on results day when he was awarded A star." "Graham is a very polite and competent person. He is punctual and reliable. He’s helpful and knows what he’s doing, and explains stuff well, would recommend." "My sons grades have gone from Es to As thanks to Graham - great value with excellent results. Would recommend to anyone"
