Maths tuition offered

All levels offered

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

  • SQA exams up to and including:
    • Advanced Higher Mathematics
  • Edexcel
    • AS/A-level 
    • AS/A-level Further Mathematics
      • Core Pure Mathematics Papers 1 & 2
      • Further Core Pure Mathematics Papers 1 & 2
  • International Baccalaureate SL/HL AA & AI
    • takes the form of support and guidance using available preparatory materials. These exams require you to develop problem-solving skills that can only be acquired by doing problems.
    • Please see my STEP tuition page
      • if you would like to become  a mathematician then you should consider preparing for and sitting either STEP or MAT

    1-2-1 tuition in maths by an experienced maths tutor offers you the help, encouragement 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 people do better at maths.

    I particularly welcome enquiries from potential tutees who are taking SQA National 5, or GCSE  maths with a view to obtaining an  A or 9 pass at both National 5, GCSE and SQA Higher, AS/A-level the following year. And also from SQA Higher, AS/A-level  students aiming to get an ‘A/A*’ at both Higher and Advanced Higher, AS/A-level. Please see my page How to get an A in SQA Higher Maths

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

    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.

    If you want to become a mathematician then you need to enrich the maths you are doing at school with practice at problem-solving which is not typically available in state schools.

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

    • Tuition is given by online means only. By doing this my hope is that I am reducing carbon emissions overall.
      • Online can be as good as face-to-face tuition and has many advantages
    • Homework and bespoke notes on topics are included in the above fees
    • Cumulative results for previous years can be found at Results 2013 – 2021
