Lessons / Tutoring
Hello! I am the former Head of Mathematics at International School Brunei (ISB). After 20 years teaching Maths in UK and International schools, I am providing tuition in my new purpose-built centre in Gadong.
With extensive experience of teaching children of all abilities, including those with learning difficulties and Oxbridge entrants, my rapport with my classes has always been a strength.
All levels of Mathematics catered for, both exam courses and lower years.
Years 7-9 Key Stage 3;
Years 10-11 IGCSE Core, Extended and Additional;
Years 12-13 A-Level International Baccalaureate (HL/SL/Studies); A-Level.
Years 7-9 SPE;
Years 10-11 D and A Mathematics;
Years 12-13 A-Level.
A speciality is the IB Internal Assessment. Whereas teachers at school are permitted to give only give limited guidance, I am able to give much more structure and support on the content and drafting.
For entry into universities in the US, I also give tuition for the Levels 1 and 2 SATs in Mathematics. The SATs contain questions on topics not covered by the International curriculum - I can teach these so that candidates are fully prepared.
Whilst at ISB, I coordinated the UKMT Challenges (Junior, Intermediate and Senior levels) and took two teams to SEAMC (the South East Asian Maths Competition). Practice and coaching in preparation for these is available.
I am a fully registered teacher with the General Teaching Council in Scotland and as a tutor with Brunei’s Ministry of Education (Reg. no. KPE/DG/BPS/B/318(14)).
The price quoted is per pupil per hour. Guaranteed one-to-one tuition may be available for $40 per hour.
I have an excellent understanding of the local culture, customs and procedures as my wife is Bruneian and I emigrated here in 2011.
Please get in contact with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!
