Information about Jan

BACKGROUND

I am married and I have lived in Broadstairs since 2006.

I have been a lecturer and private tutor in Mathematics, Physics and Mechanical Engineering in South Africa for 14 years, before emigrating to the UK in 1997.

I retired in 2014 and tutor full time since then.



ENHANCED DBS CERTIFICATE

My current and up-to-date Enhanced DBS Certificate has been provided to the agency and it has been approved.



BUYING MY DETAILS

After buying my details from the agency, you will receive my contact details.

In the light of the latest changes to Data Protection Laws, I will not receive your details and will therefore wait for you to contact me.



TUTORING DEMAND

You are encouraged to book tutoring classes early as the demand for tutoring closer to the examinations and mocks gets higher, which unfortunately means less opportunities for tutoring.



Availability: AVAILABILITY & TUTORING LOCATIONS

I offer KS2, KS3, GCSE and A Level (Mathematics and Physics) tuition face to face and online.

I am available throughout the year, Monday to Friday, mainly in Broadstairs, Birchington, Westgate, Margate and Ramsgate.

I prefer to tutor the tutees face-to-face in their own homes, where they are more comfortable.

I see tutoring as a commitment of reliability and availability between both parties. I therefore expect full payment if you cancel the tutoring session on the same day, because it does not give me enough time to arrange for another student to benefit from your cancelled session.

After we agree on a time slot, you are encouraged to obtain my details from the agency as soon as possible. You will agree that it will be unfair to keep the slot open for too long, where another student could have used it.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: TEACHER AND LECTURER QUALIFICATION

I qualified as High School teacher in 1984 and as lecturer in 1987 and taught Mathematics, Physics and Mechanical Engineering at High School and Technical College level until 1997.



PUBLICATIONS

I wrote and published several handbooks on Mathematics, Computer Programming and Fischer Random Chess.

I create and develop Android apps, relating to the subjects I tutor. These apps are available online.

SYLLABUS

METHODOLOGY and APPROACH

I concentrate on laying a firm foundation of the subject matter principles, and then to build confidence in the ability to be able to apply those principles.

I revise both the work the tutees find difficult at the moment and the work that they might not have been taught properly and diligently in the school.

I regularly revise questions from past question papers with the tutees.

I give tutees homework, mark it and discuss it with them.

I give the parents of the tutees access to my Google drive to download my notes, past question papers and mark schemes.



ONLINE TUTORING

I also tutor online via SKYPE.
