I am a "semi-retired" maths teacher who likes tutoring while not looking after my grand-children.

Many of my pupils are school students preparing for GCSE or A-level.

Others are adults who need maths for their University courses in Medicine, Chemistry, Engineering, Finance and Teacher Training.

I continually stress that having a tutor does not guarantee success - students who work hard and use me as an extra resource are the ones who do well.

I usually teach individuals, in their homes. Occasionally I teach small groups - this works well when the students know each other.


Teaching Further Maths

Since retiring in 2006 I have been teaching MEI Further Maths to small groups of students at The Charter School in Dulwich.

Sep 2006 - Jun 2008

Individual Tuition

I have been tutoring part-time for more than 10 years.

Many of my pupils have been school students who need help with GCSE or A-level maths.

Others have been adults who have needed maths for University courses in Medicine and Dentistry, Engineering, Chemistry, Finance and Teacher Training.

During this time I have become familiar with many of the A-level syllabuses: Pure Maths, Mechanics, Statistics and Further Maths. I also believe that I have acquired an understanding of the difficulties that students face in their mathematics.

General Teaching Experience

I taught maths in different types of secondary school, including a Government boarding school in Zambia and a Grammar School in Kent.

From 1997 to 2006 I taught Business Information Management at the University of Westminster.

This was very interesting and rewarding, but now that I am retired I am glad to get back to maths, which is my first love!

Aimed at: Intermediate and Advanced.


When meeting a new student I always have an informal meeting for both sides to get to know each other. If the pupil is of school age it's important that parent(s) or guardian(s) are present. This is when you decide whether you want to employ me.

Thereafter, if you have to cancel with less than 48 hours' notice, it's understood that the fee is payable, as it's time that I could have given to someone else.
