About me

Maths isn’t hard. You probably think it is, but you can do it with the right approach.

The problem most students have with maths is that different people struggle with different areas of the subject. Teachers simply do not have the time to devote to individual students that they would like, which leaves the students feeling confused and disconnected from the material. I have around four years experience of face-to-face tutoring and so know the areas where students struggle most.

Finding what works for individual students is the key to success in any subject, and maths is no different. I offer a plan that allows students to learn and retain the material in a relaxed environment where the focus is entirely on their learning. There will be work to do, but this will bring its own rewards come exam time. I dare say you may even come to ‘like’ maths.


Studying Aeronautical Engineering, most of my subjects are maths based and I am required to take in a lot of information in a relatively sort time frame. This has taught me how to plan my study to get the best results and I will teach you how to do that too.


So what are you waiting for? Let’s get started!

About my sessions

Lessons will focus on the material that students need the most help with. Examples will be clear and easy to digest, allowing progress at a good pace.


It is pointless to sit for four or five hours at a time doing problems. This does not help students retain what they have learned. Little and often is a much more productive use of time and is a far more effective method of remembering how to do maths problems.

Learning will focus more on the process of completing maths...

Learning will focus more on the process of completing maths problems, rather than the theory behind it. I have found that, once students are able to do the problems, they understand the theory. This is a much less confusing approach than trying to understand the theory first, without really knowing how it applies to actual problems.


There will be homework set for each lesson. It will be focused and shouldn't take too long, which allows students time for their other school work.
