I have been providing private tutoring in maths to GCSE and A Level students as an additional activity to my IT career for about ten years.

I have loved mathematics since my O Level studies, when a really good teacher took the trouble to explain the subject with care and to ensure the whole class was following it before he moved on to the next topic.

I have an honours degree in Mathematics from Durham University and an MSC in Computer Science from the University of Wales.

A number of students develop gaps in their understanding during their school career... Maybe there was the lesson here or there that did not quite make sense at the time or the topic that did not have enough time spent on it to sink in. These gaps become more and more important as the course progresses, since later topics depend on the earlier understanding. Then the student starts to struggle as the subject gets more advanced.

Often I find that my my job is to fill in those gaps in understanding, like repairing the foundations.

Other students are lacking confidence and have become wary of the subject. They need the opportunity to go through problem areas again to get a better understanding, so that their confidence can return. I often find that the student suddenly "gets it", sometimes just because they've been shown another way of looking at the problem.

I like to help the students get a deep understanding of what they are doing so that they can make the maths "their own".
