Information about Brian
I am currently only providing online tuition, e.g. via skype, and i have a limited number of free spaces for students studying for GCSE or A level maths.
I am a professional, full-time Mathematics tutor. My aim is to improve students understanding of, and appreciation for, Mathematics and hence maximize their Mathematical abilities, achieve the best exam grades that they can, and provide skills that will last forever.
Availability: I am a full-time maths tutor and hence I am available weekday daytime, and weekday evenings.
Willing to travel: 12 miles
Experience: Whilst working as an IT professional I tutored my grandchildren and some of their friends in Level 3 (A Level) and Level 2 Maths qualifications (GCSE, and Functional Skills). In 2014 I decided to change career, go back to a subject that I enjoy, and to teach Mathematics full time. My range includes GCSE, A level, Functional Skills maths, 11+, and 13+.

Feedback For Brian (10)
Excellent tutor. Flexible, supportive and very knowledgeable. Brian took time to capture a 16 years old boy`s interest in Maths (not just simply teach a topic). Always kept the topics interesting and encouraging, and built my son`s lost self belief step by step. Within couple months, gaps in his knowledge were filled, and new, higher grade topics were successfully completed. During to the pandemic Brian carried on with online sessions, which was very welcomed in those days. Brian is a real traditional mentor and educator, not only a Maths tutor.
We have just started with Brian & already I can see a confidence in my daughters ability & what she is willing to tackle. Brian has an ability to navigate through her errors with patience, while encouraging her the whole time. We would highly recommend Brian.
Brian is very patient and calm. He explains everything clearly until its understood. His advice on exam technique has proved invaluable and helped our son achieve a Grade 8in his GCSE Maths. We would highly recommend.
I turned to Brian when I needed some serious help to pass my maths exam.
From my first lesson with Brian I felt at ease, he worked with me to find the best style of learning for me. He was patient and found new techniques and styles of learning which really helped me to understand. He marked work for me and sent me detailed responses explaining what I needed to work on. He was amazing!
Last week I found out I had passed my maths exam with flying colours, Brian you are a star and I am so grateful for all your help and support, thank you!
My son says that Brian is very calm and straightforward to work with. Brian has helped him from the very first session and my son`s confidence in Maths has improved in just a couple of weeks. We would strongly recommend Brian for `A` level Maths (Core 3 and 4) tuition.
Very helpful, friendly Maths tutor to have. Mr Brain really helped me understand Maths a lot better in a short period of time. I highly recommend Mr Brian as a Maths GCSE tutor to anyone.
Brian has been a fantastic help and confidence boost for our son ahead of his A level papers (C1, C2, C3, C4). Our son was delighted with his approach right from the first session and has gone into his exams with a different attitude thanks to Brian`s help and support. I highly recommend Brian.
Brian was very helpful in teaching my son and his friend for the upcoming exams for the first year of their a levels. They both learnt a lot from Brian and would be happy to have him again next year.
Brian is very patient and understanding the student needs. This few weeks tutoring has made good progress. Well done. Nicole
My son has had several sessions and we are already seeing a great improvement. Brian arrives promptly each week and has an excellent rapport with our son. He is patient and is really helping with his confidence and understanding of maths.
