About Me (photo file attached at bottom)

I first started teaching and tutoring in Cardiff and South Wales after obtaining a Maths Degree and then teacher training in Cardiff University. Since teaching I've moved in to private tuition where I feel I can make a real difference and have extensive experience in Cardiff and South Wales and more recently Portsmouth and Hampshire. 

I have worked in Portsmouth, Fareham and Portchester teaching in Neville Lovett Commuinty School, Portsmouth City Girls School,  St. Lukes School and Charter Academy as well as privately and have a number of endorsements from satisfied parents and pupils.

When in Wales I also worked in the Finance Industry for a company that provides outsource work for pension and endowments and also for a couple of Independent Financial Advisors. I hold quite a few professional qualifications in finance.  

After working in these areas I know how important maths is for students and appreciate the world of work in whatever career path students decide to take.  

I have worked one to one with a wide variety of ages and levels and believe it is important to build confidence in students adopting a friendly approach and often concentrating on basics such as fractions, percentages and decimals which is a crucial foundation.

The same is true for algebra at AS/A Level and it is very important to make a challenging subject accessible, regularly review progress and for brighter students provide motivation with challenging tasks and problems whilst keeping an eye on the basics and what’s needed for the exam.

One to one is the ultimate teaching in that it is very flexible, delivery and pace can be adjusted entirely on the learning speed of the student and every student is different!
