About the lesson

studied for and was awarded a BA (Hons), and a Certificate of Postgraduate Study at Cambridge University between 1988 and 1993 in "Natural Sciences," specializing in Chemistry and Maths. I obtained a PhD from Birmingham University in Mathematical Chemistry in 1996. I did a lot of undergraduate teaching during this time.

I then worked as a Research Fellow at the Universities of Oxford, Exeter, and Sussex. As an "added extra" I was awarded an MA from Cambridge University a few years after graduating, and from Oxford University when I worked there.

Between 1999 and 2011 I worked as a Senior Lecturer in Mathematics in Newcastle. I have carried out and published a considerable amount of research in mathematics and science, and I am currently an Honorary “SURF” Research Fellow at Swansea University.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My approach is to work alongside learners with the aim of facilitating them to discover and develop their own most suitable strategies and techniques for achieving their goals. These goals can be very diverse: to feel more confident, to boost grades, to improve general skills, to pass specific exams, to gain entry to Universities, to write better reports, or to master specific subjects or areas.

For me, good learning is not just about "passing the exam" but also about developing skills which are genuinely enriching to the individual, and useful throughout life. And, good learning does not have to be a hard slog – it can be fun whilst also achieving serious and lasting results.
My main drive is a huge personal curiosity and a desire to explore, develop, and express creativity; to expand my understanding and insight; and to help others to do the same and become full-rounded individuals who contribute to and enrich the lives of others and society in general.

I am very down-to-earth, friendly, open, and approachable. I always take into account the learner's age, experience, starting-level and needs, and am hard-working and adaptable in finding new and appropriate ways to get the required results for each individual.

I regularly ask for detailed feedback on my own performance as an educator, and on the students' experience as learners in order to fine-tune my activities to optimise outcomes.

I "do my homework" each week, too! I am also happy to be available (as appropriate) for brief telephone, e-mail, or e-conferencing consultations between face-to-face sessions to facilitate the learning experience.
