I have made it possible for several failing GCSE students to pass mathematics and for many A-level and IB students to gain higher grades than they were expecting. I have taught a wide range of students from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds. This is a small selection of my click here recent successes. I am interested in development issues in Southern Africa. I am a keen long-distance runner, recently completing a single-stage 100 km race in Northumbria.
