Information about Joe
Want help where your teacher glossed over the subject? Been thrown in at the deep end for the maths module of your uni course? Or just need some extra help ahead of the exams? Send me a message to arrange some tutoring.
I am an experienced tutor covering GSCE and A-Level Mathematics and Physics, as well as maths content in uni courses such as economics or product design. In recent times I see myself fulfilling a niche where other tutors or teachers have struggled themselves with the subject, or to get the important details across (this is unfortunately becoming more common).
Last year I completed my PhD in the field of computational optimisation and also hold a 1st class BSc (Hons) in Applied Mathematics and Statistics. I have experience of tutoring GSCE, A-Level maths and physics, maths skills courses and maths content in non-maths university degrees. I have also completed the GPROF teaching course at the University of Portsmouth, including some assistant tutoring to computer science degree students.
My style of tutoring is to focus on core skills and past papers to directly tackle skill gaps and uncertainties, in parallel to the course work done at school or college. However, I can adapt to your needs as appropriate. I find a lot of people have more knowledge and skill than they realise, but they need more confidence and help putting those abilities into context.
My rates are £50 per hour. I have a current Enhanced DBS certificate and both level 1 and 2 Safeguarding and Protecting Children certificates (I am also a Badminton coach).
So whether it is cramming before an exam or tutoring over a longer period of time, please contact me to book a lesson or to get more information.
I look forward to hearing from you,

Feedback For Joe (11)
My daughter has found Joe really helpful to cover her weak areas in the run up to her A-level
Professional and knowledgeable. Is good at explaining mathematical concepts and adapting to level of understanding. Highly recommended.
Joe, what a guy. Joe has helped me greatly with the maths modules for the first year of my Computer Science degree. I had struggled since I hadn`t studied maths since GCSE. He`s calm, non-judgemental and so incredibly knowledgable. Not only will you learn and understand what you need to, you`ll enjoy doing it too. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Joe explains concepts really well
Joe recently helped my son prepare for his A level Maths exam. We found Joe very easy to deal with and my son found his tuition very useful.
My son enjoys his tutoring sessions with Joe. He simplifies things for him and makes it easier for my son to fully comprehend his lessons. I would highly recommend Joe.
Joe is an excellent Tutor. He is making good progress teaching my son Maths in preparation for his GCSE. I would highly recommend Joe, for anyone considering tuition.
Joe has been helping my 17 year old son with Maths. We`ve had him for 3 block sessions of 1.5 hours and that works really well. Joe & my son have a good working relationship and doing practice papers with Joe has definitely helped. We will go on to use Joe more over the next year or so and highly appreciate his help to date. We would 100% recommend.
I struggled to find a tutor to help me with my marine engineering course due to the varying topics. It was loaded with maths and physics as well as electrics. Joe took a look at the notes and then we spent a decent amount of time together working through things until I understood it all. I have just received my exam results and passed both exams. I am extremely happy and can`t thank Joe enough for the time and patience he had with me. I would highly recommend him as a tutor. Thanks again Joe.
My son finds Joe to be an excellent tutor. Joe is very easy to communicate with and very reliable.
Joe has been an excellent tutor. He arrives well prepared for the lesson, and explains everything clearly and patiently. He tutors mainly by working through exam questions, concentrating on those areas that are most challenging. This is good preparation for A levels and boosts confidence.
