Information about Alan

I am an appointed Advanced Level Mathematics Examiner for 2015-2024. I have successfully marked the 2023 Pure Maths EDEXCEL Paper One.( I have a certificate from EDEXCEL to confirm my successful marking of A Level Maths (MECHANICS ) from 2015 to 2018 )
My accuracy as an examiner has given me team leader status.

I am retired as a teacher, so I have plenty time to prepare excellent lessons.
I expect students to do extra work which I will mark and give feedback to student and parent.

I am an Enthusiastic teacher of Mathematics and Physics to Advanced Level-and beyond.
I enjoy sharing my knowledge and help students to fulfil their true potential. I keep up to date with Physics news.

I was a tutor at Wiltshire College for 14 years, then taught Mathematics and Science in the field of Military Science at MOD for another 14 years to 2012. This has given me a superb appreciation of the practical applications of my subjects in many situations. For example Doppler Radar and sensor circuits to identify speed and direction of enemy targets.
I have experience of being an Examiner and Moderator in A Level Physics too.
My DBS Certificate has been renewed from 6th August 2023
I use ZOOM Pro for ONLINE lessons :
I also use BITPAPER which keeps all the lessons taught in one place. It’s a really innovative resource sharing environment that will cost you nothing. The student gains possession of lessons that can be referred to for revision and reinforcement of concepts.

Availability: I prefer tutoring in Advanced Level Maths/Further Maths/Stats/Physics.
Any exam Board for Physics : Edexcel, AQA, OCR

Morning tutorials are really best for me but I realise students are at school .
I tutor all afternoons except Saturday
I tutor all weekday evenings up to a 7 pm start

I only teach for one hour intervals weekly not fortnightly.










Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: Hons Degree Physics Nottingham University (1974)
PGCE (Leeds University 1978) Qualified Teacher Status.

At St Aldates College, Oxford, I taught A Level Maths and Physics for 6 years at an international Independent school.

At Wiltshire College, I was responsible for setting up a Mathematics Study Centre. I have a vast experience of one-to-one tuition and the negotiation of learning programs with indiviual students.

I have taught on a wide range of courses at Advanced Level: Pure Maths, Mechanics, Further Maths, Statistics and Physics.

GCSE Maths and Physics, BTEC Computing, HND Engineering, BEd Education

At the Ministry of Defefence, I was a subject matter expert in the following fields:
RADAR, Thermal Imaging, Ballistics, Missile Dynamics. I taught Military Science and Mathematics to Army Officers for 14 years.

I taught the use of EXCEL, SHAREPOINT and POWERPOINT. I write IOS Apple Mac IPHONE APPS

I have many great feedback comments and I want to continue Tutoring because it is great fun,. All students have their own way of learning but I insist that they do extra work to consolidate their learning.

I have found that the students who succeed are the ones who consistently complete the work I recommend them to do.

My son has had about 5 lessons so far to help with A level Maths during the exam run up period. He reports the sessions to be very beneficial. He says he learns what he needs to do, but also why he needs to do it, which makes things much clearer. Everything is working smoothly re the online aspect and he is set work to complete before the next session. This is then marked prior to the next session and feedback / areas that need more attention are revisited at the start of the new session. Copies of what was worked on are accessible for my son to use when he does the homework. Topics are picked by discussion with Alan. We are very pleased with the progress so far and my son has just booked extra slots for the school holiday week. Alan seems easy to speak to and is eager to maximise my sons capabilities. I would say that you do need to do the homework in order to make best use of Alan`s sessions. Highly recommended.

Alan has been a great physics tutor and an enormous help in covering large amounts of revision in a very short period of time. I decided to re-sit my A-levels quite late in the year and had a limited amount of time to go through through the material (and had forgotten quite a bit of math). Despite this, Alan took me in and has helped me successfully cover the majority of the syllabus so far, managing to explain weeks worth of work within a lesson in a very concise and intelligible manner and sending me very valuable material. Resitting my physics A-level wouldn`t have been possible without his help and thus I wholeheartedly recommend studying with Alan.
