Information about Andrea
I am a passionate mathematician qualified up to degree level. I have worked as an IT project and programme and continuous improvement manager across the past 29 years using my maths skills in real life application. 3 years ago, I made a decision to change career and take up tutoring for Mathematics for all levels up to A-level after doing it for friends, relatives and other contacts over the previous 10 years. I want to make maths relevant and interesting to my pupils and I base my teaching style around the learning preferences i see during my lessons. I spice up the lessons with fun challenges and games for the younger age groups, to keep my pupils learning and to improve their confidence to try more and more challeging problems.
For my older pupils, i offer practical help to build confidence, to understand all the required topics thoroughly give them lots of practice examples to work through and I teach them to be able to spot topics and answer exam style questions at all levels of difficulty.
Availability: I have some slots available on most days in the week with the exception of Wednesdays.
Willing to travel: 3 miles
Experience: I have been using my maths skills throughout my career in the it industry and, having done a lot of informal teaching prior to 2018 for family, friends and other contacts, with a good deal of success and positive feedback; i decided to take it up professionally.

Feedback For Andrea (8)
Mary was really comfortable with Andrea and found all her lessons very concise, fun and beneficial towards her Stat`s GCSE.
Excellent approach and high degree of commitment in respect of my sons learning.
Andrea is patient and explains the GCSE maths concepts to my son in a way that he can grasp quickly. She is making a huge difference to my son`s achievement in maths and has helped him to understand so many areas that he was struggling with. He has increased in confidence in maths since working with Andrea, and I am very happy with his progress.
This is my granddaughters 2nd lesson & we can see Andrea will be of great benefit to our granddaughters maths, she is patient & explains the topics clearly & our granddaughter comes out with a clear understanding of what she is being taught, much more confident
My son has only been having maths lessons for a short period of time, however in this time his confidence and attitude towards Maths has grown. This is down to Andrea who is a very positive and encouraging teacher.
Informative, fun and encouraging method. Thank you
Excellent tutor, has increased my daughters confidence after 2 lessons!
Andrea is very professional but also kind and caring in nature, makes my daughter feel very relaxed and comfortable. She has also improved quickly after only a few lessons and has gained in confidence.
