Advanced Higher preparation in view of ongoing covid19 — March 2020 onward

Are you in the position of having passed your Higher prelim, and hence your Higher, or of hoping to obtain a pass, and therefore needing to prepare to progress to Advanced Higher studies in the next academic year, but with school closures no lessons to attend? Then please consider, as an investment in your future, private tuition in order to help make this transition.

Similarly for the transition from N5 to Higher, or if you are in England and moving from GCSE or AS to A level in maths, again facing the prospect of not being able to attend classes to have the support of your teacher, please consider taking on the services of a private maths tutor.

Or, if you are a parent or guardian home schooling during the covid19 crisis and would like some advice and support with your son or daughter’s maths education then please do get in touch and I will do my best to help.

And consider this: I have had two Russian tutees in the recent past, and was told by the head of the Russian community in Edinburgh that even in Soviet Russia people would hire mathematics tutors — people simply wanted to get better at maths! I know! — unbelievable!

What I do

I offer online, or in home, tuition in mathematics for secondary pupils preparing to take:

  • SQA exams up to and including:
    • Advanced Higher Mathematics
    • Advanced Higher Statistics
  • A level — Edexcel
  • Numeracy exams for professional development e.g. AOSB

Private tuition in maths by an experienced maths tutor offers you the help and support you need to increase your understanding of this important school subject, and thence to improved grades. I have set up as a maths tutor in order to help more people to do better at maths.

I particulary welcome enquiries from potential tutees who are taking SQA National 5 maths with a view to obtaining an ‘A’ pass at both National 5, and Higher the following year. And also from Higher students aiming to get an ‘A’ at both Higher and Advanced Higher.

Some of my Advanced Higher tutees from previous years have gone on to study mathematics, music, engineering, economics, and medicine.

If you have an interest in pursuing a STEM subject at university it is advisable that you consciously work towards achieving your goal from an earlier rather than a later stage.

Please see my How to get an ‘A’ in SQA Higher Maths and a message to all aspiring mathematicians.

I am equally pleased to help anyone with improving their understanding of maths, or with improving their numeracy, whatever their level, and whatever their goal.

Edina Tuition is making car journeys carbon neutral by offsetting CO2e emitted in travelling to tutees’ places of residence. I don’t know how much this really helps the climate.

Online tuition however can obviously help in this regard, reducing emissions, so please do consider this option.
