I am a professional physicist who tutored in the evenings and at weekends for a number of years before moving into tutoring full-time in 2007. I am a specialist in access and educational software, and a regular contributor to parenting magazines on education issues. Since 2014 I have been employed by the health sector Skills Council as their online learning specialist.

My work ensures that I am fully conversant with the latest developments in teaching techniques and working with the visually and print impaired means you must be crisp and lucid in your explanations.

I offer a free initial meeting to allow us to get to know one another and to work through the issues with your studies you feel you might be having. We can then plan out lessons together or simply concentrate on those aspects that you feel most unhappy with. If you don`t understand something the first time around then I will try another way. There is always more than one way to explain a topic and I try to make flexibility the key to my approach.

Life's Experience...

Ian read physics at the University of Leeds School of Physics and Astronomy before embarking on a career in industrial research and development in the laboratories of Zortech International.

His work for Ceramaspeed Limited brought him to the attention of small local firm Parascan Techologies (now alfaQuest Techologies), producers of workflow and prepress solutions for the newspaper industry.

There he worked mainly for French daily Le Monde, as well as stints with L'équipe and a number of other European newspapers.

Then on to Lucent Technologies as a Bell Labs engineer developing voicemail systems at what is now Avaya UK's technology campus in Welwyn Garden City.

In 2001 Ian returned home to Worcestershire to work for Dolphin Computer Access, authors of specialist software for people with visual and print impairments. There he specialised in Internet accessibility for the visually impaired and educational aids for children with print impairments. In 2007 he branched out on his own to work as a full-time private tutor.
