Tutor Information


My Qualifications & Tutoring Experience

John graduated from the University of Warwick in 2009 with a 1st Class Honours degree in Mathematics. During his time at Warwick University John was a Supervisor in the university’s Mathematics Department providing support to small groups of first-year Mathematics and Statistics students at the university with their work.

Since 2012 John has worked full-time as a private mathematics tutor in Leeds and has thousands of hours of experience tutoring at a range of levels including Key Stage 3, GCSE, A-Level and Undergraduate Mathematics. During his time as a tutor John has tutored students who have successfully gained places at some of the most prestigious universities in the UK including Oxford University, Warwick University and London School of Economics to study towards degrees in subjects such as Mathematics, Computer Science and Philosophy, Civil Engineering and Economics and Finance.

John sees mathematics from a mathematicians point of view. He is  not a physicist or chemist or biologist who does a bit of maths tuition – nor  a mathematician that does a bit of science tuition. John tutors solely in Mathematics. 

In 2019 John contributed to the writing of two A-Level Mathematics textbooks by one of the most popular textbook publishers in the country, CGP; one textbook on Pure Mathematics and a second on Statistics and Mechanics. In recent years he has also written three complete 120-page workbooks for a major UK-based tuition franchise on GCSE Mathematics and A-Level Mathematics.

John doesn’t ever compromise on the quality of tuition that he provides — his main priority is to make sure that his students have the confidence, knowledge and understanding that they need to achieve their full potential. John is passionate about his specialist subject — mathematics — and aims to pass on his enthusiasm to others.

John works full-time with Maths students who feel that they need a bit of extra support with their school work, homework or exam revision; you or your child receive quality, professional maths tuition from an experienced maths tutor who has experienced the difficulties and struggles first-hand of GCSE, A Level maths and Further Maths and University maths.

John provides one-to-one tuition for mathematics students from GCSE through to A-Level and university maths and can also tutor for QTS numeracy tests and various other mathematics and numeracy-based tests.

John is an active mathematician in the sense that he still learns about mathematics on an almost daily basis.  He takes the subject of Mathematics very seriously. John possesses, specialist mathematical knowledge which shows students, not only how to do the A Level stuff – but also discuss how it comes about in more detail. 

John tutors students to think about mathematics like mathematicians.

Teaching Style

"I live and breathe mathematics and I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to do what I love doing every day"

  • Enthusiastic about solving mathematical problems; passing on this enthusiasm to my students.

  • Tutors students to think about mathematics like mathematicians.

  • Promotes knowledge based learning to achieve exams success  & not the other way around.

  • Importance of mathematicians mind-set, when it comes to preparing for/sitting exams. 

  • Offers students the opportunity to raise any issues or difficulties that they may be having with their work and helps them to solve their own problems.
