Ten years ago I decided on a career change from being a sucessful engineer to teaching maths. My Engineering skills were my greatest asset when understanding Maths. To me Maths is about solving problems, trying different ways and thinking outside the box. This enables me and my students to develop a deeper understanding of the Maths.
I think it is important for learners to check that there answers are sensible, I encourage learners to be independant learners, giving them interesting tasks, this will give them the confidence to become a good mathematician.

Jamie is tutoring my son with his GCSE Maths. Jamie is very punctual and has a lovely delivery and explains concepts well to my son. His confidence is growing and he is able now to tackle the more difficult maths questions that is vital for him to gain a B grade in his exams this summer. I can definitely recommend Jamie as a first class tutor. Thank you Jamie.
