I am a science graduate and qualified teacher but my early career was in industry, initially as a scientific instructor then subsequently managing large companies involved in chemicals and aerospace engineering; so I bring a wider perspective to tutoring than someone whose experience is limited to the educational sector.
Maths and science are personal interests as well as professional teaching skills for me. My real-world experience of using maths and science in business helps students understand and relate to the subjects as something more than just academic requirements.

Experience: Tutoring Experience
I have tutored and coached a wide range of pupils. My students range across schools in both the state and independent sectors. During my career I have designed and produced many teaching manuals and have published original educational research into programmed learning. I have a detailed and up to date knowledge of the exam specifications for all the main UK exam boards in the state sector and the IGCSE favoured by independent schools. I also tutored my own children, both of whom went on to obtain good university degrees.
I adapt my approach to the individual student depending upon their particular needs. My objective is always to develop their core skills and understanding so they can acquire effective problem solving strategies and exam techniques.
