Information about Gillian

I`m a qualified Maths teacher with a BSc (Hons)degree in Mathematics Education. I`m retired from full time teaching now, but I really enjoy one to one Maths tutoring, whether it`s Functional Maths, GCSE or A level Maths.

With one to one tutoring you get the chance to ask questions you might not want to ask in class, and I get the chance to see how you learn best. We will work on your weak areas and you will gain in confidence. To get your best grade in the exams you will then need lots of practice in answering exam questions; it really is all about practice, practice, practice, with expert guidance.

And I also hope you will enjoy your lessons, and enjoy your Maths more, too.

Availability: I can generally find a time to suit you, and I`m happy to do daytimes , evenings, and weekends

Willing to travel: 15 miles

Experience: I started out studying Physics at degree level and then worked in the Electricity Supply industry and gained an HNC in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. While bringing up a family, I studied Maths as a mature student with the Open University, and then qualified as a Maths teacher at the University of Exeter. I taught maths in Devon secondary schools and I have taught A level and GCSE Maths full time for twelve years at FE college. I`ve also taught Functional Maths to adults and teenagers.

I`ve been tutoring for five years and have an up to date knowledge of the latest GCSE and A level syllabuses. Over the last four years I`ve successfully tutored A level students in the new A level for OCR/MEI, AQA and Edexcel exam boards.

If you are a GCSE student, I have lots of resources, cunning tactics and exam practice questions to help you achieve your desired grade.

Gillian has been our 15 year olds tutor now for 4 months. In her most recent test she achieved a grade 8 and `outstanding` progress. She is predicted an 8 possibly even a 9 in her gcse now. I am in no doubt that this latest increase in grade is down to Gillian. Professional, reliable, supportive and fun. So glad we took this step - one very happy teenager!

I needed to find a tutor for my partner. He had less than 2 months until his maths exam and we wanted to seek extra help. We found this website and saw Gillian on here with excellent background of mathematics. She lived local which was a huge help too. Gillian came to our house one night each week and it made a huge difference to my partners maths. Jon began to feel confident and happy with his maths whereas before it was getting him down. Jon then passed his maths test in less that two months of having gilians help. We cant thank her enough she has been truly amazing and we would highly recommend her. Lucy and Jon
