Information about Michael

I’m an experienced professional maths tutor with a Cambridge maths degree, an abiding love for maths and a passion to help students discover and master maths for themselves!

I offer engaging and effective mathematics tuition at all secondary levels: A-level (including IB and Cambridge Pre-U), GCSE (including IGCSE), Common Entrance and KS3.

I also teach mature students, and university students requiring maths to support other degree subjects. Finally I also teach music theory.

Typically my students are studying for A-levels or GCSE/IGCSE. I have prepared students for exams from all the major exam boards, including Edexcel, AQA, OCR and OCR-MEI. I also prepare students for STEP and for numeracy or numerical reasoning tests, including the numeracy skills test for prospective teachers.

Two of my three children have been through school and university and one is still at secondary school, so I have been engaged closely with the education system at all levels and understand what both students and parents are looking for to achieve academic success. My family and I have lived in Cranleigh for over 20 years and have connections with a number of local schools.

More than almost any other subject, maths needs confidence to be built, and a patient, individually tailored approach. Able students may need practice to strengthen problem-solving and eliminate errors, a more joined-up view of maths to deepen their understanding, and challenge to stretch their capabilities. Others struggle to understand at a more basic level, and an imaginative and pictorial approach with plenty of real world examples is needed to achieve that "penny drops" moment.

Depending on the student, tuition may include any or all of: coaching to consolidate (or anticipate) teaching at school revision for examinations working through past examination papers teaching and testing of specific sections of the curriculum or more free-wheeling exploration of mathematical topics. By agreement with students and parents, homework may be set and marked.

If you want to succeed in your exams and also to deepen your appreciation of mathematics and have fun, then get in touch!

Availability: I’m available to teach at any time in the week to suit students, either on weekdays (daytime or evenings) or at weekends. I am happy to teach in my own home, or in students` homes in Cranleigh or up to 10 miles away in the surrounding area in Surrey and West Sussex, including Guildford, Horsham and Godalming. If teaching in a student`s home, I may agree an additional charge for travel if this exceeds 10 minutes each way

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Firstly, let me thank you for all the brilliant and effective support that you have provided for my daughter over the past months to work for her A levels.
Her understanding and confidence in her abilities in particular have catapulted since she has been working with you.
I can only recommend you to my friends and their children.
