I AM NOT CURRENTLY TAKING ON ANY TUTEES.
I`m a; fully qua;lified Primary and Mathematics tea;cher (having trained in both disciplines) with o;ver six yea;rs tea;ching experience at a range of schools in West and South Yorkshire. I also have previous experience o;f successfully tuto;ring individual students with maths a;t KS3, GCSE and A Level. My main experience has been teaching all subjects at KS2 (7-11) where I have developed a particular expertise at preparing children for their SATS in English (Grammar, Writing and Reading) and Maths. I am familiar and confident with the mathematics curriculum through to A-Level and am an excellent mathematician, having a First Class Masters Degree in the subject.
I am more than happy to tutor mathematics to any level and any ability, having experience teaching the whole range of the curricula to students of all stripes.
My Primary background means I can keep my students enga;ged by presenting to;pics in a; ra;nge o;f creative wa;ys a;nd by building their co;nfidence thro;ugh a; ra;nge o;f a;ctivities.

Feedback For John (4)
John has developed a good rapport with my son and immediately presented maths to him in an accessible and interesting way. He has focused on developing key skills, making things relevant to his interests. He has only done a few sessions but we have already seen an improvement in his understanding and enthusiasm for maths! We haven`t used a tutor before and so would recommend to anyone.
From the moment mr perry stepped in to our home he made my son feel very comfortable, he has undertaken to find out what he liked from the start and made teaching English fun buy using techniques that involves his passion (football) they are always laughing and although we have only had mr perry a short time his English is coming on fantastic. I have no doubt that my son will be where he needs to be by the time his sats come around. My son now looks forward to his English lessons every Monday. I can highly recommend him.
My son is very happy with John`s teaching. He feels comfortable and his confidence is improving.
My 9 year old son loves his Maths and English sessions with John and he really looks forward to them. He is fully engaged and his confidence has greatly increased, which is exactly what he needed. John provides exactly the right balance of fun and relevant activities. We are so pleased to see our son developing a "can do" attitude to his studies.
