Information about Robert
I believe building confidence and overcoming the "maths is hard mentality"is key to students progressing and exceeding their targets.
I left the RAF 2004 where I had been an Aircraft Electrical Engineer. During my service I studied with the Open University to gain my degree. I had spent a number years as an instructor in the RAF so becoming a teacher seemed an good choice for a new career when I left.
Confidence is key I believe in building on success.
Availability: Daytime on Monday, Tuesdays and Fridays plus weekday evenings and weekends.
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: I have been a Secondary School Maths Teacher for 9 years currently work in a department which has had an 80% A to C pass rate for the last 10 years well above the nation average. So I know how to help my students achieve that higher grade.
I have also worked with low ability and SEN students and have found most are capable of progress if the pace is correct and they are given the confidence to make mistakes.
Feedback For Robert (7)
Robbie tutored our son to help him gain a pass in his GCSE maths. We would highly recommend Robbie. He builds subject confidence and is extremely reliable. Our son is dyslexic and maths was his Achilles heel. However with Robbies help he passed his GCSE maths with much relief!
Fantastic would recommend to others
Robbie taught my son for 2 years when he went from Primary to Secondary to build his confidence and make him feel more comfortable with maths. Wholly reliable and using his experience and knowledge as a Secondary school teacher he brought on my son to the point we feel he no longer needs the extra tutition. We`ll be using Robbie`s services again when my son prepares for his GCSE. I would highly recommend him.
Robbie had his work cut out for him when I contacted him in February to ask him to give my daughter some extra support towards her GCSE Maths examination in May. She was predicted a C grade, but really wanted a B in Maths to enable her to meet the entry requirements for her preferred A-level subjects. With Robbie`s help, she comfortably achieved the B grade she wanted. We were delighted with her progress over the few weeks that she worked with him and would recommend his services to others looking for private tuition in Mathematics.
We found Robbie through Tutorhunt and all initial correspondence with him was through the site. We weren`t sure what to expect, but when Robbie arrived we were pleased to find that he was approachable, polite and had a good sense of humour which put my daughter at ease from the start.
Robbie`s teaching style was relaxed and friendly he had a no-nonsense approach to achieving goals, but was patient and realistic in his expectations at the same time. My daughter, who was just sixteen at the time, looked forward to the sessions spent with Robbie as she gained a little more confidence in her abilities each time.
Robbie was flexible with the sessions he delivered and made every effort to fit into our busy schedules to ensure that the sessions were regular. Communication was excellent (we spoke via email and text message) and Robbie was happy to discuss the topics covered and give details on progress etc whenever we asked.
My daughter who has has always struggled with Maths, passed her GCSE Maths only after having tuition from Robert. I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend him.
I Contacted rob 4 months before I went back to college to train as a gas engineer, I was worried my maths would let me down, Roberts methods of teaching were great for me and I didn`t feel any question I asked was a silly question. I would really recommend Robert to anyone that is looking for a maths tutor, he gave me the confidence I needed to use maths during my studies to become a qualified gas engineer. Thank you :)
On Robert`s first visit he came in with a structure, a plan and assessed my daughter so he knew exactly at what level she was working at, which is very professional. The organization and level of teaching has remained of high quality, he is constantly pushing and challenging my daughter. She has come on in leaps and bounds. I would recommend Robert to anyone who is looking for a Maths tutor!
