I am Rob, I have 34 years teaching experience, 27 of those in an outstanding school, and have a DBS check. I tutor Maths at both KS3 and KS4, with each session being upto 1 hour With respect to online sessions, I use Skype and a shared online whiteboard during the lesson,( and in terms of meeting face to face, when restrictions are lifted I prefer to tutor in your own home.) However, you are more than welcome to suggest any other place that is convenient to you. During (or before) the first session, I can perform a quick assessment and tailor a study plan based on your need. Feel free to contact me by email,(, to book a session to start the journey to greater confidence in Maths. Don't doubt your capabilities!

Tell us about your experience...

I have been teaching for 34 years, and in that time, i have taught the full range of abilities. I have also been an Examiner, and so acutely aware of what is expected in answers to a question. I have also been a Mentor to trainee teachers whichever route they take into teaching, which makes you reflect on your own teaching strategiesand adapt them accordingly. I have recently retired from Full time teaching and now have more time to devote to Private tutoring.

What locations do you tutor in?

Online at the moment. But for Face to face tutoring only within 10 miles of Rotherham

What is your personal message to students?

Believe in yourself, and always be the best version of yourself.Also, remember that some of us take longer to learn certain new skills than others, and don't put a limit on what you think you can achieve. Set your goals high, and really go for them.
