My career started as a Physics teacher and I have 8 years full time teaching experience, in three different schools. One of these was abroad. After completing a higher degree in Physics, I switched to teaching Maths, and then subsequently moved into a scientific career, joining BT at their Research Centre at Martlesham, where I was an engineering manager for 27 years before taking earlier retirement.

But I always retained an interest and liking for teaching and have since then I have done a good deal of part-time teaching and private tuition

I can offer Maths and Physics at all levels up to A-level, and Chemistry and Science to GCSE.

I have 4 children myself, so am well used to the individual learning situation! And I think I have an appreciation of the things that youngsters find difficult.

Although I am familiar with current syllabuses and exam coaching, I like to emphasise the real-world practical relevance of topics, and common-sense ways at looking at questions students have difficulties with.

Among my private teaching assignments in the spring/summer of 2013 were some GCSE Maths students, a GCSE Science Student, a GCSE Chemistry student, and A-level physics student, as well as some year-8 Maths students
