More about my tuition service
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 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.
Some of my Advanced Higher and A-level tutees from previous years have gone on to study mathematics, medicine, engineering, economics, astrophysics, computer science, psychology, chemical engineering and music.
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 page How to get an ‘A’.
I am equally pleased to help anyone improve their understanding of maths, or to improve their numeracy, whatever their level, and whatever their goal.
Should you get an AI or a human tutor?
SUMMER SCHOOL 2024
In order to encourage the take-up of my summer school tutorials I am offering them at the special discounted rate of £30 per lesson.

- Progression to H
- Progression to AH
- Progression to AS
- Progression to A-level
- Tuition is offered on a weekly basis, I don’t offer fortnightly sessions
