Information about Alastair

I am an experienced maths teacher and full time tutor with a 1st class honours degree and PhD in Maths. I have a strong track record in teaching the new GCSE, A-Levels (Maths and Further Maths) and university level maths.

I have spent the last few years tutoring and teaching. I spent the last three years teaching the new A-Level and GCSE and have specialised in converting students with predictions of grade 6 or 7 into grades 8 or 9. Of the 29 students in my most recent GCSE class 11 achieved a grade 9, 14 achieved a grade 8 and 4 achieving a grade 7.

I have an excellent understanding of university level maths and the new A-Level (Maths and Further Maths) including Statistics, Mechanics and Decision maths. This knowledge is further enhanced by my PhD which was heavily maths based.

As part of any programme of tuition I also mark tutees work in order to identify possible mathematical misconceptions which are addressed during future tutorial sessions.

Experience: I have been a teacher for four years and a tutor for five years. Teaching in school has given me an excellent understanding of the entire syllabus which I have taught to multiple classes on a daily basis. As a teacher I have been responsible for marking exam papers for GCSE and A-Level classes on a regular basis. This has given me insight into all the different misconceptions that exist in GCSE/A-Level maths and is something I am able to address when running one-to-one sessions. This classroom experience, together with my deep understanding of the syllabus, is something that cannot be reproduced by tutoring alone.

Dr Alastair is an amazing, kind and enthusiastic teacher. When tackling mathematical problems, he makes sure I understand why it is we tackle it in the steps required, as opposed to just "how to tackle the problem". In addition to deepening my understanding of maths, I have learned new skills and techniques that have helped me take my exams with greater confidence - I highly recommend Dr Alastair.

Alastair is methodical and consistent in his teaching methods and has a positive and engaging communication style with his students. Our son has started to enjoy mathematics (GCSE higher) again and gaining confidence. If the progress continues, the plan is to take the advanced mathematics stand alone paper.
