Information about Claude

I am a qualified mathematics teacher/tutor. My qualifications include: Bachelor of Science (Hons), Post-Graduate Diploma in Education and Post-Graduate Diploma in Computing.

I specialize in A-level Pure (Core) Maths, Further Maths, Mechanics, Statistics, Decision Maths and Numerical Methods, covering Hertfordshire and North London (for face-to-face tuition).

I also provide online tuition via Skype, Zoom and Microsoft Teams, locally within the U.K. and internationally. My international assignments include students from Hong-Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Central Asia, the Middle East along with students from many countries on Continental Europe.

On the behalf of sixth form Colleges and National Course Providers, I run revision courses for A-level mathematics and further mathematics (years 12 and 13) and also for mathematics under the International Baccalaureate qualification. The courses take place in Oxford and South East England, including central London and run during the Christmas, Easter, term breaks as well as August each year, in the form of a summer school.

In conjunction with the revision courses, I also deliver one-day A-level refresher courses to local schools, known as ‘Intervention Days’, during term.

I have also taught AS/A2 Further Mathematics in schools throughout Hertfordshire and have also been involved in the training of teachers in A-level Mathematics.

My recent results for private tuition include: a student home-schooled for two years in A-level mathematics, achieving an A* grade overall (89% avg.), after initially obtaining an AS mathematics grade of ‘U’ (unclassified, 23% avg.) at his last school. Another student improved under tuition by increasing his mark from 64% (C) to 84% (A), receiving an award for “Outstanding Mathematical Achievement” from his school.

For non A-level mathematics, I have tutored the CIE IGCSE Additional Mathematics qualification and the level 2 Further Mathematics qualification from the AQA examination board. I have also tutored a student from Paris in their final year of the French Baccalaureate (mathematics).

I can also provide tuition for entrance exams (AEA, STEP, MAT, TMUA) to Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial, Warwick universities etc.

Small group tuition in AS/A2 maths (e.g. revision courses, exam preparation) can also be arranged, if required.

QTS (Qualified Teacher Status- England) and Enhanced Disclosure certificates can be supplied on request.

Contact details for referees and copies of testimonials can also be supplied on request.

Availability: I also provide online tuition via Skype, Zoom and Microsoft Teams locally within the U.K. and internationally. My international assignments include students from Hong-Kong, Malaysia, Thailand and Continental Europe.

Weekdays, afternoons and evenings.

If necessary, when approaching the summer examination period, morning and week-end sessions might be possible.

Please note that I do not tutor from my own home, all (face-to-face) tutorial sessions are conducted at the student`s home or at their preferred place of study.

Willing to travel: 30 miles

Experience: I have over 40 years experience in teaching and tutoring advanced mathematics, in both classroom and one-to-one environments.

I have a proven track record of teaching challenging and abstract mathematical concepts in a way which reduces complexity, deepens understanding and builds self-esteem and confidence in my students.

I engage with students through a supportive and individually tailored approach that ensures that their needs and goals are met. Substantial experience and deep interest in mathematics ensures that my students are in a safe pair of hands.

Claude is an outstanding tutor. He’s patient, diligent and goes over and above to make sure the student understands what’s being covered. He’s really helped my son who’s studying Maths A level to plug the gaps in learning that unfortunately materialised during the lockdown. Highly recommend.

I am a Further Math A-level student and I have been working with Claude for almost two months now. I really like working with him. He thoroughly understands the specifications of the different exam boards, and his way of teaching makes all the topics very easy to understand. He has helped me to gain more confidence and fluency in Further Math, and he is always prepared to answer any questions during the week (e.g. about homework). If you are looking for a tutor to bring your math to the next level I can really recommend Claude!

A fantastic confidence builder Claude is a friendly, calm, patient yet enthusiastic tutor. On our first contact he was happy to spend over an hour on the phone assessing my sons abilities and deciding on a structure most suited to his needs. Claude’s style of tutoring goes further than just showing how something is done and also explains why it is done as well. This makes a huge difference to remembering and understanding. Claude is also happy to show you many different ways to approach a question to find the one that works best for you. There is no doubt that Claude is a confidence builder and working with him outside the pressurised atmosphere of the classroom certainly makes learning more comfortable and effective. His lessons are enjoyable and my son’s progress and confidence grows by the lesson. Who can ask for more than that?

Claude kindly agreed to tutor my son Maths after his Year 12 exams didn’t go so well. Harry currently does 4 hours a week to revisit Year 12 work and start Year 13 work. Claude is enthusiastic and engaging with Harry and they have covered a lot of ground already. I would recommend Claude as a tutor especially as he has made time to accommodate and encourage Harry at his Maths.

My son (year 12) started tuition with Claude in April during lockdown. My son has found the remote tuition really helpful and likes Claude`s methods of teaching. He is very organised and reliable and has been extremely flexible with changing lesson times and adding extra lessons when needed which has been really helpful. We are really thankful to have found Claude and look forward to meeting him in person!

We have been so pleased with the tutoring from Claude. My son (year 12) says he explains things very well and is very patient. In the current lock down situation Claude is now doing remote tutoring with webcam which is great for my son to be able to continue with the lessons as further maths is not something that can just be spoken of. It needs to be seen. As I said we are so glad to have found Claude through tutorhunt. Thank you.

Our daughter recently started A Level Maths & Further Maths sessions with Claude. Claude links the learning to topics covered in class at School to reinforce learning and help bridge any gaps. Claude is very knowledgable, lessons are well prepared and structured and he is also willing to offer assistance by email between lessons if stuck on homework questions or class learning.

Claude is an experienced tutor with a very good teaching technique, giving us plenty of direction on how best to structure the lessons. He held a phone consultation first to identify teaching needs and could therefore deliver targeted tuition from the first lesson. He has a warm, easy manner which encourages good communication with the pupil.

Claude has been an excellent tutor, helping me mostly in areas of A-Level Further Pure, and some of A-Level Further Statistics and A-Level Pure Maths.

His organisation has been useful by helping him guide me specifically in weaker topics. I have been able to improve my knowledge and understanding in A-Level Maths and A-Level Further Maths efficiently, covering a wide range of topics over a short timespan.

I turned to Tutor Hunt to find a tutor for my son, who was becoming increasingly anxious in his Maths and Further Maths A-Levels. We are delighted and relieved to have found Claude, who is an exceptional Maths teacher, and is obviously passionate about his subject. My son is now feeling so much more confident, and under Claude`s guidance has a significantly better chance of achieving the grades that he needs.

Mr Claude is one of a kind ! He helped me tremendously is every single part of A level maths. He explains everything professionally and has the talent of getting the information smoothly into your head. Unlike all teachers, Mr Claude can explain not just pure maths but also mechanics and statistics! I recommend him to anyone needing help in maths or looking to improve their grade. I thank him very much for making me develop my confidence and making me understand maths for the first time !

Claude is always very punctual and organised. He makes notes on my sons school progress and makes sure any topics he is confused about are explained clearly and effectively before the end of the session so he can carry his new knowledge into his schoolwork.
