I teach a wide range of maths-related subjects – and even if the thing you need help with isn’t listed here, there’s a good chance I can help you figure it out.
I promise not to make you feel stupid!
I shouldn’t have favourite kinds of student, but I do: Anyone who decides “I need to know more maths for my job or my course and I’m damn well going to learn it” gets my immediate respect and support. I know how hard it is to overcome the (untrue) belief that you’re not a maths person, and I know how good you’ll feel once you get past your demons and start saying things like “Is that it? I can’t believe it’s so simple.”
I’ve not just helped dozens of adult students get their numeracy qualification or GCSE grade – I also wrote the book. I’ve got countless tips and tricks to make life easier and make sure you get the qualification you need.
Think like a mathematician
Up until GCSE, you can get away with learning “if they ask this, you do that.” At A-level, you have to start to think more like a mathematician. The bad news? That’s a bit harder. The good news? It’s more fun. The better news? I can help make it easier – whether you’re struggling with statistics, muddling through mechanics or dabbling with decision maths.
I’ve also got a load of A-level e-books for you to check out.
With a mix of memory-tricks, study tips and a lot of work on past papers, I can help you get on top of your A-level maths and get the grade you need for your university of choice.
Whatever maths course you’re studying for your IB, I’m happy to help you get to grips with the details and understand what you need to do to reach the standard you’re aiming for.
Don’t let a lack of maths hold you back
All science A-levels and university courses need you to be pretty good at maths. That includes the obvious ‘hard’ sciences like physics, biology and chemistry, as well as subjects such as psychology, medicine, engineering and economics that might not seem all that maths-y at first. If you’re doing social sciences, the odds are that you’ll need a decent grounding in statistics at some point. If you’re a designer, a little bit of trigonometry goes a long way.
Sadly, I only know bits and pieces about the details of proper science – but that doesn’t matter. The nice thing about maths is, it doesn’t change much from one area to the next, which means I can still help.
Whether you need help in the holidays, ongoing support through the year, or are panicking about your resits, I’m here to help you.
I love helping university maths students develop the skills they need to succeed. (Much of the time, I get to learn stuff, too – I don’t know everything, but I put on a good show of it.)
And if it’s something I really can’t help with, I’ll be glad to put you in touch with someone who can.
