About David

I have been teaching in high school and college since 1997 although I have now retired from main stream education to concentrate on one to one and on-line tuition. My main subject is maths, which I teach to GCSE higher (or foundation) levels along with Functional Skills up to L2.
For the past three years I have taught students who have been excluded from main stream education. These sessions have been un their own home and mainly one to one. In this same time I have also worked as an intervention maths tutor for a number of high schools in the Wigan and Manchester areas.
My secondary subjects are maths and ICT, mainly Clait and ECDL although these account for less than 10% of my overall teaching.
I am very calm, approachable and easy to get along with.
I also have my own students that I tutor either in their home or on-line. These are via an on line agency and to date I have delivered over 650 hours of tuition and I have a 5 star rating from my students.
I have a Cert Ed, ECDL L2, functional skills maths and English L2, enhanced DBS (but not updated monthly) and safeguarding certificates.

David's Experience

I have been a qualified teach since 1997 and I've worked in main stream high schools and FE colleges. For 13 years I also worked in prison education in both a teaching role and a managerial post.
I have been tutoring for the past three years concentrating mainly on GCSE maths, both papers.

David's Approach

I always try to find out as much information about my student before I first see them. This includes school year, class set, the current grade they are working at, target grade, paper level, examination board.
On my first visit I spend a little time just chatting with my student, and their parents (depends on student age). I find it's good to know something about my students, just general stuff. I also ask how they like maths and what topics they are OK with and which ones they find challenging. usual ask my student to work through two standard assessment papers. From this point we agree to a working plan based on time and availability. I provide everything my student needs for each session.
I am very calm, very approachable and I've got all the patience in the world. I'm happy to answer every and any question and to change approach when needed.
The above seems to work very well, as my on line reviews testify to. But most of all, I really love what I do.
