Information about Pat
I am a fully qualified and highly experienced Maths/11+ teacher and tutor and have been teaching/tutoring for 30 years with exceptional results. I am enthusiastic and passionate about teaching and at the same time am approachable and friendly in my relationship with my pupils.
I have a Masters degree in Coaching from Warwick University where I am also involved in tutoring Maths teachers in how to get the most out of the different levels of student. As a professional performance coach (who has worked in education and business) I have a unique insight into what facilitates success.
My approach is unique and recognises the need to align conceptual understanding with an ability to apply it in different situations. There is often a disconnect here which explains why pupils struggle in exam situations.
Willing to travel: 50 miles
Experience: 30 Years of teaching and tutoring Maths in Primary and Secondary schools.
Tutoring 11+ for the past ten years.
Professional coaching experience with teenagers and teachers in education
Senior school management for 18 years.
I am currently in the process of collaborating with Warwick University in writing a book that makes Maths more accessible and relevant to the students of today. The plan is to follow up with books at different levels which will support teachers, students and parents.
Feedback For Pat (4)
Pat has been an excellent Maths Tutor for my son, year 9. He is patient, positive and has built a great rapport with our family. He explains maths problems in a way that makes sense to my son, finally! Highly recommended. :-)
Pat has only been tutoring my daughter for a month and she has already made significant progress in maths and is now working at a level that is above her year group. Most importantly, Pat makes the lesson fun and she really looks forward to it every week.
Pat is a fantastic tutor. He really understands my son, has taken time to work with him and has accommodated his learning needs brilliantly. My son really enjoys these sessions and is already really feeling the benefits. Very positive.
We are extremely happy with Pat, his approach is perfect and progress is good working towards the exam period.
