Information about Jonathan
I am a qualified Maths teacher as well as an experienced and successful tutor, having worked in education for over 8 years. I studied Maths at degree level, receiving my BSc in Mathematics from the Univeristy of Liverpool.
I have experience working with pupils from KS2 through to GCSE Maths and also working with prospective teachers doing their QTS Numeracy test. I am a successful examiner for Edexcel at both KS2 and GCSE. This allows me up to date knowledge of the expectations of the exam boards and I factor this into my tuition programme.
I have seen first hand the progress and reward that comes from effective one-to-one support and strive to continue to assist students in realising their potential.

Due to the current situation with regards to COVID-19 I have adapted how I deliver my tutoring sessions. For the foreseeable future I will deliver my lessons online through Zoom, this allows for a safer and more interactive tutoring experience. My current students have took to the switch very well and find the new sessions very useful. If you would like further details on how the sessions work then please get in touch.
Currently I have availability on Monday and Thursday evenings. I do also have a number of slots during school hours if this is appropriate to what you are looking for.

Feedback For Jonathan (7)
We are happy to recommend Jonathan. He is punctual, well prepared, flexible and kind. His patience and encouraging manner helped build our daughter`s confidence in maths. He is knowledgeable about the current curriculum and exam requirements. This is reflected in her great results in GCSE Maths and Further Maths.
Jonathan has successfully regained confidence in my two children`s ability in maths. Teaching both KS2 and KS3,the progress they have both made is evident. The children rate him very highly and now tackle maths questions without doubting their ability. We all look forward to continuing this success. Thank you Jonathan.
Jonathan is an amazing tutor. He is so patient and considerate with my Son. My Son has already gained confidence and has already learnt so much in the few weeks that Jonathan has been tutoring him. Wish I had contacted him earlier!
Never thought I would say this, but my Son looks forward to his maths lessons at school now as well as his time with Jonathan!
Jonathan really helped me last minute with tutoring for a QTS test which I had a matter of days to pass! Would highly recommend! He had very good ways of teaching which I did not learn in the classroom .
Jonathan has been fantastic and a great help to my two boys who sat their GCSE`s this year. Jonathan quickly put the boys at ease with his structured way of teaching and the boys responded brilliantly to it.
From the first meeting the boys continued to tell me how much they liked working with him and how they felt they greatly benefited from his teaching style.
The boys achieved great results in their GCSE`s and we all acknowledge that Jonathan played a big part in that also.
I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend Jonathan to anyone and would say that if you want to get the most out of working with Jonathan get him in sooner rather than later.
Thanks again for everything Jonathan.
Jonathan was a fantastic tutor for my daughter to help with her GCSE maths exams. She really understood his techniques which helped build her confidence. He went out of his way to support her, I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for extra help with maths.
Extremely good Maths Tutor, very accommodating, always on time and a really nice guy.
Would definitely recommend Jonathan.
