Information about John

I worked in Local Government for six different county Councils over 34 years prior to my retirement at the age of 51 in Planning/Highways/Traffic etc. I have an honours degree in Civil Engineering at Cardiff University as well as being a Chartered Civil Engineer and completed my PGCE at the age of 54.
I taught/lectured in Maths and Civil Engineering part-time at various colleges throughout South Wales as well as devising and lecturing a course on Traffic Engineering Degree students at Newport University.
I am currently writing a book about my life and designed my own house when I was 19 years of age.

Availability: Available at home most evenings/weekends. Also available to travel on most days of week by prior arrangement.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: I was a part-time lecturer in Mathematic related subjects over several years in Bridgend College, Ystrad Mynach College and Newport University.
Since that time I have helped people fight cases in in the field of Civil Engineering flooding/subsidence planning permission on a no win, no fee basis and have yet to lose a case. I have a vast experience in the field of Highways/Planning Permissions etc.
I recently helped a young student get a good grade in Maths(GCSE) after her school gave up hope on her passing. This was after only 6 (2-hour) sessions teaching 1 to 1
As this proved a very worthwhile experience I decided this year to offer help to more pupils for GCSE maths and discontinue my other roles.
I also write articles for 2 papers on the fairly regular basis.

I cant speak highly enough about John, he really is fantastic. Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable in his subject, his calm and welcoming manner really put my anxious daughter at ease . He was very accommodating in regards to times and went above and beyond to help my daughter who informs me that she learned more from John than in all her Maths lessons at school. One from happy parent! Thank you John!

Great overall experience from John. Knowledgeable and a understanding and is getting the best out of my daughter. School was letting her down but she has quickly picked up the curriculum even through the medium of Welsh. Thanks John

John has been tutoring my daughter for a few weeks in maths and already her confidence has improved and she understands concepts more clearly. John is very patient in his approach. Very glad I found John on Tutorhunt.

Ashley (Mr)

5/5 Rating

Excellent definitely recommend

Tutors Response :

I feel Ashley has been letdown by his local school and would have really benefitted from some extra help in Maths from which he was excluded for no fault of his own. He is excellent in other subjects including English & Art but finds Maths difficult. He is a lovely young man who has a great future ahead of him. Since coming here his confidence level has greatly improved and success will soon follow in maths, given that Ashley is absolutely determined to succeed.
