Do you “not get maths”? Do you often find the right answer to maths problems but without really understanding how or why? Or are you an already competent mathematician but looking to push your skills further? If so then Barney can help.

A Countdown champion, Barney Maunder-Taylor scored his win on the T.V. show in 2010, and his Countdown winner's teapot stands amongst his proudest possessions. But his love of the lighter side of mathematics is backed up by serious qualifications: he has a first in maths from Oxford University.

Both options have their advantages, so you can choose whether to meet in person or online.

Choose online one-to-one maths tutorials if you prefer the comfort and convenience of your own home, if you’re keen to save time travelling to and from tutorials, or if you live outside of Bournemouth UK.

Choose face-to-face maths tutorials if you prefer to collaborate with pen and paper, or for hands-on maths with concrete objects (e.g. properties of 3D shapes; metric measurements etc). Working with concrete objects can help to make maths less abstract.
