I believe passionately in the importance of education and within that the key role that Maths plays. Not only are Maths qualifications vital but also the thinking skills that Maths develops are of great general value.
I have taught Mathematics for 32 years in a variety of Comprehensive Schools. 13 years as a Head of Department. I have taught children from a wide range of backgrounds and spread of abilities. I have prepared numerous students for their GCSE and A-levels, including the new 9 to 1 GCSE. I have always strived to enable students to reach their potential whatever their starting point and to help them value their education. I have a history of my students doing well in external exams.
As a school teacher I have been CRB and latterly DBS checked. I have attended several training sessions on the Safeguarding of Students.
Sean as a teacher is tenacious in ensuring students reach their potential grade. He particularly excels with students who are struggling with the demands of the higher GCSE Mathematics content, who are finding it challenging to achieve a good grade. He is innovative in the way he presents difficult concepts to students, breaking the required skills needed into manageable chunks. He is adept at developing resources to overcome student’s stumbling blocks enabling them to access the problem and find the solution. Students taught by him made excellent progress and attainment.
I worked with Sean for seven years and I have recommended him as a tutor to friends and colleagues seeking tuition both at GCSE and A Level.

Sean quickly pin-pointed what my son needed to focus on to improve, and shaped a work plan for several weeks. Sean helped polish my son’s Maths skills but even more importantly gave clear, straightforward and very practical advice helping increase his confidence and be much better prepared for the exam’.
