Highly recommend Ian. He tutored our son after Covid hit to help him get his grade back up to where he needed to be. Our son with the help of Ian achieved a GCSE maths grade 7.
My daughter has always found maths difficult but after Covid she really struggled. At her last assessment before her GCSE, she was predicted a 2. Absolutely delighted that she achieved a 5. Sue
Ian is a wonderful tutor. Patient and understanding. I suffer with anxiety and he knows how to cope with it. If you suffer anxiety with maths. CHOOSE HIM Lisa (adult student)
We have no doubt that Ian’s support has enabled our daughter to grow in confidence in her own ability in maths and we feel sure that this change would never have happened without Ian’s input. Ian helped Tia greatly with her A Level studies. Richard
Ian was fantastic with our daughter. Always reliable he brought a sense of fun to maths which is not always easy and made complex subjects easy to relate to. We were concerned about our daughter’s confidence and Ian managed to build hat up with his maturity, experience and exceptional communication Paul
Ian is a highly professional tutor and is really helpful and patient when it comes to tutoring my son. He has progressed several levels higher and is really confident in his application of Maths. He is now studying Higher Level Maths at GCSE and this is due to his increased proficiency with Ian. I would not hesitate in recommending him as a tutor. Suk
Our daughter had always found maths hard going but maths had begun to take on a life of its own and anxiety about maths was growing. We were delighted, therefore, to find Ian who has dissolved this fear of maths in a very short space of time. Ian’s straightforward, common sense way of tackling problems and his sensitive, patient delivery have proved to be the ideal combination for us.
Ian is able to draw on his varied and extensive teaching experience to provide a range of approaches to support understanding. Our daughter often says, “Ian just has lots of different ways of explaining something. If I say I don’t get it, he shows me another way. Why has no-one shown me that before?”. Ian uses a range of materials in the sessions: online materials and specialist websites are mixed with coloured pens, everyday examples and gentle humour. Ian is student centred and sets realistic and achievable targets.

Ian helped my daughter tremendously with her A level maths and we would definitely use him again should the need arise. John
After being locked out from the numeracy skills test, I was determined to pass and try again. I can proudly say that I have passed, this was not possible without Ian’s quick methods especially for the Mental Arithmetic section, where I struggled most. Ian was professional and his quick methods, tips and clarity in teaching made me understand the questions and this gave me confidence to try again. I would definitely recommend Ian. Zainab
Ian is extremely knowledgeable and seems able to convey the complex issues of A Level Maths in a really helpful manner. He is also very reliable and friendly. We wish we had found him sooner! Sue Whiles
Rhian achieved a B grade in her 13+ maths paper. Thank you so much for all your support. Her maths teacher has commented that her understanding is much improved. Beth
