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
  • AS/A level
    • Edexcel, AQA
    • 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
    • And please see my Maclaurin Mathematical Olympiad page to get a flavour of mathematical problem solving

Additionally for anyone preparing to undertake:

  • Numeracy/maths exams for professional development e.g. AOSB, PGDE, Scottish Fire Service
  • HNC/HND/Cert of HE/OU STEM courses with substantial maths component
  • SAT and GRE tests
  • First year university level maths
  • Improving their problem solving skills

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 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. 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.

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 offered on a weekly basis, I don’t offer fortnightly sessions
  • One of the outcomes of the SARS-Cov-2 pandemic has been an acceptance of online tuition. As the Omicron variant shows, the pandemic is not over, and I am therefore continuing to offer tuition by online means only. Since there is concurrently a climate emergency, my hope is that I am thereby acting in a way that will reduce my carbon emissions, forbye reducing the spread of any variants of covid.
    • Online can be as good as face to face tuition and has many advantages
  • Cumulative results for previous years can be found at Results 2013 – 2021
  • For each individual tutee I use a probationary period to help me decide if my way of giving tuition will work for them.  Please see What I expect of tutees
  • Please read my Terms and Conditions
    • by accepting tuition from me you will be agreeing to the T&C in the above linked page
