Information about Edward
A qualified maths teacher, I have taught GCSE and A Level maths in both secondary and further education. With a degree in mathematics, I have expert subject knowledge.
More importantly, however, because I am focused on GCSE and A Level maths I know which topics students will have difficulty with and why. As an examiner, I see first-hand the mistakes students make so excellent exam technique is always a feature of my tuition. I also know the examination inside out and as an accredited Professional Development Lead for the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics I have delivered training to maths departments on the new exam specification, so you can be sure we`ll be concentrating on what matters.
Most important of all I can teach! Soon after I joined the Royal Navy my natural aptitude for getting things across was recognised and I was asked to become a Technical Trainer. I did that for ten years before qualifying as a maths teacher. But it`s what my students think that count and I`ll be happy to show you how highly they rate my teaching!
I`ll let you decide - my first lesson is free without any obligation and you can see for yourself!

Feedback For Edward (19)
Ed is a fantastic Maths teacher. We have seen a massive improvement in Luke`s understanding and also his confidence since he started working with Ed. I can`t recommend him highly enough. He works at a pace that your child is comfortable with but also pushes them slightly to establish their ability but encourage them to build on the foundations and stretch them too. Ed is a mine of information and has really established a good relationship with Luke in a short time period. Feel very happy with Luke`s progress. Thank you so much for your help and support we really appreciate it!
Fantastic tutor, Ed gave my daughter the confidence she needed that took her to a gcse grade 9 taken 6 months early than the normal May/June exams! His patience and teaching skills are excellent.
I Cannot rate Ed highly enough, if you are looking for a Maths tutor, don`t look any further! my boys actually look forward to their tutor time, they have become more confident in a very sort space of time
Ed is a really excellent tutor who has helped my daughter achieve a grade 6 in her Maths GCSE. He explained the topics clearly and helped to plug gaps in her knowledge and understanding. His teaching style and invaluable tips as an examiner helped to give her more confidence with her Maths and I have no hesitation in recommending him.
Edward is an excellent tutor and explains things very thoroughly and clearly. My daughter is progressing well and we are very pleased.
We have only seen Edward for a few weeks, he is organised, kind and listens to both you and your child, providing guidance and a thoughtful rounded view of the subject. My son is making steady progress and feels very comfortable in Edwards company. We would award five stars but it`s early days....
I have to say that Ed has been fantastic. My son who is at gcse level has been underperforming in Maths and really didn`t understand the subject. Ed has made it clearer for him so much that we can already see improvememts after only a few sessions. Highly recommended.
My daughter has been seeing Julie (Ed`s colleague) for around 12 months. Couldn`t praise them highly enough - she has moved up a set in maths and really enjoys her sessions! Tailors sessions to cover any areas of difficulty and ensures tests are throughly prepared for. Thank you...we feel that the tutoring is really helping and making the difference!
An excellent tutor !! not only did Ed help my son pass his exams ,due to the grounding and understanding he gave him, he has now gained the confidence to attempt a higher level. Always flexible and user friendly he ensured my son maintained focus by setting additional work outside the lessons, and was always available on the phone for minor queries. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ed ,and although slightly more expensive than others ,you certainly get quality teaching worth every penny .
We were really pleased with Ed`s work with our son. He improved his expected result to a grade 7 in Maths in the new format. He was always on time and had an excellent way of teaching. His background in engineering made the principles of the subject easier to understand. We would definitely recommend him
Ed has proven to be of great assistance to my son`s confidence and understanding in Maths. He finds the way that Ed explains Maths easy to follow and enjoys the weekly one to one sessions, Ed is also there to contact if he has any questions inbetween lessons. We are very happy with his progress and the way Ed is preparing him for the new GCSE exam next year.
Excellent tuition. Ed gives clear, understandable explanations. My daughter has learnt helpful techniques for solving problems. This has helped improve her grade. Would highly recommend.
Excellent tuition by Ed, my son has gone from hating maths and being afraid of it, to looking forward to his lessons with Ed and his grades are improving in school. The best investment I have made for my son, thank you Ed.
Ed, took on a difficult challenge with my son who was in denial about his A level maths. He has an excellent approach, first building up trust and we now feel he now has a platform to start taking things forward.
Friendly but professional. Approachable and flexible with times. Excellent hints n tips for maths. Daughter passed gcse highly recommended
Very happy with tutoring my daughter feels very comfortable with Julie and is happy to go.
Edward is excellent & is helping my son to successfully transition from GCSE to A level. I would recommend him to anyone.
we are really pleased with the progress that our daughter has made since she started with Edward. His style and approach clearly suit her requirements.
