About Colin


Bio

I am a mature and energetic teacher with much prior experience outside of teaching, which I use to bring relevance and insight to mathematics. I have also tutored one-to-one for nearly two decades, including both the most gifted of students and those who need help with the fundamentals.

I am a mature and energetic teacher with much prior experience outside of teaching, which I use to bring relevance and insight to mathematics. I have also tutored one-to-one for nearly two decades, including both the most gifted of students and those who need help with the fundamentals.

My aim is always to allow pupils to progress at the pace which best suits them - to move forward swiftly when possible but to slow down and consolidate when that is necessary. Continual assessment of knowledge and understanding is the key - derived from observation and questioning. My emphasis is always on achieving deeper understanding.

I graduated from the University of Cambridge in England - one of the world's premier engineering schools, where everything (including mathematics) is brought back to first principles. I have considerable experience of applying that knowledge in the real world prior to becoming a teacher and can relate the learning to real life examples. I have taught pupils aged 11-19 in all mathematical topics and have coached individual students for their entry into universities and colleges in USA, UK, Europe and Asia. Like all good teaching, my tutoring approach is student-centred - students are given time to think, encouraged to develop their analytical and logical skills and coached in the processes necessary for successful problem-solving.

Whatever your mathematical needs, I can help! Developing your mathematical talents will bring both of us great satisfaction.
