Maths Tuition from Numeracy to A-Level

I have twenty five years experience teaching mathematics at a range of levels, including five years teaching predominantly A-level (2007-2012). Since February 2013 I have offered full-time professional maths tuition in the West Midlands. I am a supportive maths tutor, working with you in the way that works best for you. I am experienced in teaching students with specific learning differences including autistic spectrum conditions as well as dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia. I am based in Quarry Bank in the West Midlands. I offer maths tuition at the student's home, or alternatively in a dedicated room in my house near Merry Hill Centre. I aim to make every lesson enjoyable as well as productive.

I offer maths tuition in Stourbridge, Halesowen, Brierley Hill, Hagley, Netherton, Cradley Heath, Edgbaston, Bearwood, Rowley Regis, South West Birmingham and surrounding areas of the West Midlands.

As well as individual tuition, I can offer workshops and a taught course preparing students to take the QTS Numeracy Skills Test (for people entering initial teacher training). See below or for further details.
