I specialise in GCSE and A level maths, including A level further maths.
I can teach in almost any quiet corner, given an adequately lit table and room for two people to sit. Please make sure your child is properly equipped with pens, pencils, a ruler, compasses, a protractor and a school calculator. Note that A level students require an upgraded calculator – the basic GCSE model is not adequate. I can recommend textbooks and online resources to suit any student’s needs.
I usually visit students at home in north Cardiff, but in these Covid-19 days I will also be giving online lessons using a mixture of video calling (e.g. Skype), an online whiteboard and shared documents. As everybody’s technical skills and equipment vary, I will work with you to develop a system that suits your child.
Offering online lessons means that I can teach pupils outside my local area – in fact anywhere in the UK. So please get in touch to discuss your requirements, even if you are not Cardiff based.
I charge £25 per lesson, which will be an hour or a little more. This covers preparation, travel and marking, as well as the lesson itself, and is the same for all levels of ability. The ‘little more’ is important: if an extra few minutes will enable us to complete a topic, then I will run over the hour. For this reason, I ask parents to try not to schedule lessons so that we have to finish exactly on time.
I don’t charge for cancelled lessons, provided you give me reasonable notice. Similarly, if I need to change the day or time of a lesson, I will always discuss this with you in advance.
