**Qualifications** Degree: Medical Science (Hons)
Obtaining a science degree has allowed me to see the direct application of mathematics to other fields. Seeing the wide applications of the subject first hand, is why I am so passionate about the subject.
Maths is everywhere, I like to prove this to students by giving them questions in a real life context. I also teach students to be resilient and work through questions logically, developing their problem solving skills. This is a new skill being brought into the revised national curriculum. Therefore will set students up for success in their exams.
I also focus on developing exam technique, helping students to gain all the marks they deserve.

Jacob took over when our previous tutor left the area. My daughter is happy with him, he explains things so she understands and she is growing in confidence after every session.
