About me

I trained in mathematics at Sheffield Universtiy before learning to teach at Oxford University.  I have taught hundreds of students mathematics, in England (Wymondham High School) and Zambia (Mambwe High School), including private and public students.

My belief is that despite being a complex subject, a strong understanding of mathematics is possible for 99% of people.  In my experience, many people become alienated by mathematics early in life, through negative experiences with the subject.  This is very sad.  

The truth is that mathematics can be an enjoyable puzzle to be solved, rather than an onerous task to be completed.

I hope to help change students perception of mathematics so that they discover this, and in so doing help ensure that they will be able to complete any requirements they have, such as passing examinations or satisfying employers of their ability.

I will spend the first lesson diagnosing which areas of mathematics would benefit most from developing, and then we will work together to develop those areas.

With many areas of mathematics (e.g. algebra and geometry), there are different ways of approaching the same topic, some of which will help some students and some of which will help other students.  This is why 1-to-1 teaching can be useful, because careful diagnosis can help to tailor the teaching to ensure that the student is learning in the way that is most effective for them.
