Information about Kirk
Friendly & hard working Maths tutor: GCSE, A-level & Further
My name is Kirk and I am passionate about teaching children of all ages and abilities the wonder and beauty of Maths (no, really, it is!)
I have helped a great many children down the years get to grips with the subject and, ultimately, prepare successfully for tests and those exams when they eventually arrive.
My students are right across the range - from early GCSE through to the Further Maths A-Level and then beyond into strange dimensions! Wherever they are on the journey, I am fully committed to helping them get that pass or attain the upper grades (if that`s their desire or potential).
I have a double honours degree in Mathematics, Statistics and Computing and have worked in the business consulting and financial services sectors for nearly 25 years; traveling the world and working on some great projects with terrific people from all walks of life. Along the way, I picked up a Masters degree in Business while working in the United States.
I have a son who recently completed his A-level studies and is now embarking on an engineering career. He was probably my most challenging student! We got there in the end and I am very proud of him.
I firmly believe the trick to becoming proficient at or good in Maths is in the teaching; it is not the child`s fault if the teaching is poor and/or doesn`t open the mind and help them "get it", enjoy it and become confident at it.
This is my aim - to help kids believe in themselves with Maths and sail through. To this end, I bring to each tutoring relationship a vast wealth of specific teaching materials and practice/exam questions (with model solutions). Steadily but surely, we work through it all and crack the code!
Few things please me more than when a child sees they can do it, their confidence flourishes and they push on to achieve their aims. If this sounds of interest I would be more than happy to help.
Best wishes, Kirk
Availability: I am available throughout the whole week (including weekends) and aim to find suitable teaching slots around other student commitments.

Experience: I have many years of experience tutoring through GCSE and up to A-Level/Further Maths/Degree level and adults too. It matters not to me, the age/ability, but a willingness to learn and do as well as an individual can :)Contact this Tutor

Has not taught. Tutor cancelled before the lessons began, hence cannot give a review
