Information about Phil
I have taught in independent schools as a maths teacher for the last 20 years - and am now assisting individual students out with tutoring, alongside ongoing freelance work as an editor/author and examiner for AQA and Pearson.
Availability: Mon-Sat. I`m also open to travelling to help with tuition, with significant travel costs (hopefully) being negotiable. My furthest most recent students hail from Windermere and Lancaster. The majority of students I am currently helping reside in the Furness area (Barrow/Askam/Ulverston).
Willing to travel: 50 miles
Experience: I have taught all abilities to GCSE mathematics (higher/foundation), A-level maths and further maths. Since 2017 I have been partly working as a private tutor locally. My tutees have tended to comprise students looking for extra help with their GCSEs or A-levels in maths, mainly from local schools. There are other individual cases - I am currently helping home-schooled students in maths, as well as a year 6 student looking to `get ahead`.
I also have extensive, and current, examiner experience. I am a senior A-level mathematics examiner for a major UK examination board and am also a principal examiner with the International Baccalaureate, (in the event of any student seeking assistance with SL/HL maths).
I have also co-authored the recent revision guide and practice workbooks for GCSE Maths, published by Letts. (Letts GCSE Revision Success), and have co-authored the recent Letts A-level maths revision guides, published in 2018.
I`m very happy to help anyone to basically any level in mathematics. My past (private) tutoring has ranged from KS2 students through to Oxbridge entrance.
Please feel free to get in touch with any questions. I`d be only too happy to help out.
Feedback For Phil (7)
very pleasant person and is a good teacher that creates a positive learning atmosphere
Phil is very pleasant, informative and my son has found the sessions very helpful towards his prelim GCSE`s
Excellent tutor. Very friendly and enthusiastic and knows his subject in great detail.
I can thoroughly recommend Phil. In four months he helped my son go from a U grade in his mock Mathematics A-level, to an A grade in his actual A level.
Phil is just great - kind, patient and immensely knowledgeable. My son is finding Maths fun and coming on in leaps and bounds. We feel very lucky to have his expertise to help us.
We are having regular weekly A Level tuition with Phil. We have found Phil to be very professional and we are getting regular feedback on our son`s progress. We would not hesitate to recommend him as a tutor.
My son has had 2 lessons with Phil for A Level Maths and Phil is an excellent tutor.
