I support students from GCSE to university preparation, specialising in A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics, IB SL and HL Mathematics AA and AI, and preparation for university, including MAT, TMUA and STEP, personal statement and interview practice. With over 25 years' experience in teaching mathematics at university, I have strong subject knowledge. I offer friendly and supportive tuition and hold a current Enhanced DBS certificate. I was Admissions Tutor for Mathematics at the University of Nottingham for several years, so I can support students in their university applications, including the UCAS application process and preparation for entrance exams and interviews. I have also recently taught year 7, 8, 9 and 10 classes in local secondary schools, in person and online, as part of a teacher training course; this included current research on how best to support students in learning mathematics. I am calm and patient. I aim to develop a deep understanding of mathematics through careful sequencing of tuition; this helps to ensure that the student's learning is secure and that my tuition provides an excellent foundation for future studies. I recognise that for many students there has been significant disruption to learning due to covid-19 - I can support you in recovering from this disruption.
