I am a PGCE, MSci qualified maths tutor based in Barnstaple who also works as a supply teacher in various Devon schools. I have experience of 1:1 tutoring with GCSE and A Level students, including adult learners. As a teacher I frequently work with students aged 11 - 18 and occasionally teach primary students (Year 3 and above). I have taught IGCSE and GCSE classes on several exam boards. My experience also includes teaching and tutoring students in Functional Skills Maths, A Level Maths and A Level Further Maths.

How would you describe your teaching style?

My belief is that tutoring works best when I know what the student needs. This means that I am always keen to encourage my tutees to identify topics they want to focus on. This means I am happy to talk through some work they have attempted or provide work myself. My sessions are always relaxed - there is no such thing as a stupid question. The pace will always be based on the needs of the student.

What qualifications do you have?

I have studied Maths at university, earning a MSci in the subject. Moreover, I have trained as a mathematics teacher, holding a Mathematics PGCE. I studied Maths and Further Maths at A Level, with an A grade in both.
