UPDATE (2023-24): around 1/2 of my maths tutorials

are now Face-2-Face, and around 1/2 are Online. The choice is entirely yours!

FACE-TO-FACE MATHS TUTORIALS: perfect if you prefer pen &

paper to working from a screen, for hands-on maths with concrete objects, or if you just prefer the social aspect of meeting in person each week. Working with concrete objects such as cubes, dice, cards, blocks, masses etc can help to make maths less abstract.

ONLINE MATHS TUTORIALS: perfect if you live anywhere in the UK

and beyond, if you live in Bournemouth but want to save time travelling to and from tutorials, or if you just prefer the comfort and convenience of your own home. We'll use Zoom (or other video software) and online collaborative whiteboard; both are free for you to use. You’ll receive a pdf of each tutorial immediately afterwards + you can visit our work together at any time using a web link unique to you. A graphics tablet is recommended (especially for A-level) so we can both write on screen more easily – please ask for a recommendation.
