Hi! I’m Colin – ex-rocket scientist, author of Basic Maths For Dummies (and other books in the series), and full-time tutor since 2008. I’ve helped hundreds of students from all over the world get to grips with their maths problems, overcome their fears and get the grades they need. I can help with anything from GCSE to university-level maths, and I’m especially keen to help trainee teachers and other adult learners acquire the skills they need to succeed.
Colin was how you expect your maths teacher to be: patient, confident and knowledgeable, and was able to put my son at ease within the first few minutes and helped him more than any other teacher. I wish he taught other subjects too!
There’s nothing so rewarding to me as a student saying “Oh! That’s actually quite easy!” I can see the lightbulb go on and I know that you understand what’s going on – and that’s the first step to getting your confidence back. Once you’ve got your confidence back, anything is possible!
After two weeks of tuition I was able to increase my maths exam result by 30% – and I can’t thank Colin enough!

I offer classes at my home in Weymouth or online using Skype. Prices start at £45 per hour and include email and phone support between classes.
Nothing’s ever a problem with Colin – he always manages to help you simplify and grasp methods and concepts which may seem difficult at first.
