How can I help?

Having worked as a secondary school Maths teacher in both the state and private sector within Suffolk and Essex, I began tutoring Maths in early 2008. Since this time, I have worked supporting trainee teacher students at the Suffolk and Norfolk SKITT and also within a local primary school as a subject specialist support for SATs exam level boosting for high ability year 6 students (teaching for gifted and talented year 3, 4 and 5 students).


I thoroughly enjoy supporting students on a one-to-one basis, tailoring my teaching to suit the needs of the pupil and helping them to fully achieve their potential.  I can teach key study skills for exams as well as supporting and building confidence through careful guidance. I can offer diagnostic help and advice with special educational needs.

Expert one-to-one maths tuition from years 4 to 13. 

I have supported many students to achieve scholarships in their 13+ and common entrance exams.  I have taught all IGCSE and GCSEs examination boards with my students consistently far exceeding their predicted grades and some making the transition through multiple grades.  Since 2008 I have taught students to pass a variety of exams including Additional maths FSMQ (AS level), A level Maths, Further Maths, QTS teacher tests, functional skills tests... 

As well as this I have successfully coached many pupils taking 11+ scholarship tests, 11+ (for the Colchester Grammar School and local private schools), the Common Entrance exams and A' levels.

Covid-19 Update - I am now offering online lessons to support home learning, either helping with schoolwork set remotely or with key numeracy skills as needed.
