Information about Will
My name is Will and I am a fully qualified Maths teacher via the School Direct graduate fast track teacher training programme.
Since qualifying, I have been assigned a wide variety of classes by my school throughout KS3 - KS5, which indicates leaders` confidence with me teaching a range of abilities. Furthermore, during 2014/2015, I was responsible for the only GCSE resit class in the town of Worksop. After moving to Essex in 2016, I continued to develop and hone my teaching skill at a high achieving state secondary school in Chelmsford, culminating in being successfully appointed as a Lead Practitioner with overall responsibility for Key Stage 4.
As a result of the changes to the A-Level specification, I have been one of a handful of members of staff who have consistently been entrusted to deliver this content.
My experience in education has enabled me to:
- spend 5 years working for both a high achieving Academy chain (with results that place them in the top 2% of state schools nationally and in the top 1% of schools for progress between Y7 and Y11) and one of the top non-selective schools in Essex
- work for a school ranked the #1 school in Essex by the Real Schools Guide 2018/2019
- achieve Progress 8 measures at GCSE considered `well above average` (>+0.3)
I have always considered that teaching/tutoring Maths is extremely different from simply being good at Maths. Students will benefit from new techniques and approaches that will help them develop their understanding and reasoning. I have high standards for all my students and my professionalism will help to ensure the best possible results for all. My recent lesson observation was graded as majority Outstanding according to Ofsted criteria.
My main aim has always been to make Maths accessible, relevant, fun, and interesting. I have been told throughout my 5 years of teaching that I am patient, understanding, and am able to break difficult concepts down into easier, smaller segments.
During this academic year, my fiancee and I have built, created and developed an educational consultancy named connectEDU. Our aim is to streamline the feedback process between schools and parents so that high-quality feedback is received more frequently. Moreover, this approach is something that I adopt for my tutoring clients. Detailed analysis and feedback is offered after each session which ensures that the full time allotted is spent on tuition.
I am a charismatic and personable tutor who bases a lot of emphasis on `real-life functional` Maths - showing students where Maths has application in the real world.
Maths is intrinsically a creative discipline, where students are required to deduce information in order to construct new knowledge. My experience of being a classroom teacher will ensure that this aspect of the subject is always developed.
I look forward to hearing from you all in the future, please don`t hesitate to get in touch with me either by phone or email.

Feedback For Will (12)
Will has built a very strong rapport with our son in a short space of time. We are very happy with his skills as a tutor and the way he has inspired our 14 year old. I would highly recommend him
Will has been a help and I would recommend him. My daughter is definitely benefiting from his help and advice.
Will is polite, professional, punctual, supportive and highly knowledgeable. He explains things in a clear and understandable way, very supportive. Nothing is too much trouble for him. He is always happy to help or advice. Would definitely recommend him and will continue to have him as my daughter tutor.
I have found Will to be very knowledgeable and highly professional. Our son has learned well from him in only a few sessions. Will has great teaching skills and makes the lessons interesting and interactive.
I definitely recommend him and I consider his time to be good value.
In year 12 I got 2 E`s and a U in my A-Level maths, not good. Began having tutoring sessions with Will during year 13. Got my A Level results today, and I got a B overall in maths. I can`t believe how much the tutoring sessions helped me increase my grade from an E to a B. Thank you so much.
My son was so thrilled with Will after his first tutoring he couldnt wait to have his next lesson!
Hes young, energetic and makes learning fun which is what counts!
Will is an excellent tutor, he has tutored my 16 year old son in the run up towards his GCSEs, he has been invaluable! He is an excellent teacher and developed a good working relationship with my son and has been extremely encouraging, and always happy to help with maths problems outside of tutor sessions . Highly recommendable
Will is a fantastic tutor! He is really friendly and extremely patient. He has tutored my daughter at GCSE level and she has found his lessons to be really helpful. Can`t recommend him highly enough!
Will is an excellent tutor. He came to us to help our son with his 11plus exam and after only a couple of sessions my son came top in his maths mock after previously scoring an average mark. Will has a relaxed, approachable manner about him and could clearly explain and communicate the methods needed to my son who commented that it was the first time he had ever enjoyed studying! I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend Will and we will be using him again for our second son`s 11plus. Thanks Will!
Will is very personable , has an enthusiastic and encouraging attitude and my son is very positive about his Maths lessons so far.
Will was a great maths tutor and my son achieved the results he needed. He made maths enjoyable for him and had a good approach to maths which was made easier to understand.
He was always on time,
Polite and gave him lots of valuable advice in his time up to his exams which in turn we got great results
Can completely recommend Will and will use definitely use him Again if needed.
I would not hesitate in recommending Will. He is exceptional in his level of dedication and we receive precise and detailed feedback of each aspect of our son`s progress. Our son finds Will very approachable and is benefitting immensely from teaching which broadens his understanding whilst still maintaining an exam focus.
