About the lesson
Each student is taught in a way that suits their personality and learning style.
I have a huge amount of resources, well-developed and flexible tutoring techniques and use computers in an innovative way including mathematical and statistical software.
Sessions can be revision, covering current work or getting ahead of class.
Depending upon the student’s ability I can use a number of methods instead of the one shown in class, I can derive formulae instead of telling the student just to learn it, I can ask probing questions to determine how much the student actually understands and I teach students to find ways of answering a question as efficiently as possible so that time constraints in an exam are minimised.
All sessions are held in my studio in Bowral.
Alternatively, sessions can be via Skype or Zoom using the screenshare facility. I have the appropriate computer equipment to do this effectively.
Please note the first session is not free - I cannot change the settings on this website!

I can do no better than to quote a response from a 2019 HSC student:
‘Thankyou so much for all your help over the past two and a half years, with your guidance I’ve felt as though one hurdle that is maths has not been nearly as daunting. Over the past year I’ve found a new ‘love’ for maths which was greatly due to your influence and ability to help me understand each topic and question. For the first ever time I am actually excited to sit a maths exam and I’m looking forward to the challenges it has to offer!’
Secondly a response from a former student who sat the HSC in 2014:
‘I have recently finished my first degree and will be graduating from The Australian National University.
I just wanted to say thank you for all the help you gave me, in mathematics, during my high school years - you’re one of the best teachers I’ve ever had, and you remain in my thoughts after these many years! Being taught by you was such a great experience - some of the formulas and techniques you showed me still came in handy during some of my difficult finance/statistics exams! The love and passion you had for learning has been a true inspiration for me and will stay with me for a lifetime.’
