What I do

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

  • SQA exams up to and including:
    • Advanced Higher Mathematics
    • Advanced Higher Statistics
    • Advanced Higher Mathematics of Mechanics
  • AS/A level — Edexcel

Additionally for anyone preparing to undertake:

  • Numeracy/maths exams for professional development e.g. AOSB, PGDE
  • HNC/HND/Cert of HE/OU STEM courses with substantial maths component
  • SAT and GRE tests
  • STEP
  • First year university level maths

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 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.

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!

Please see my page 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.
