My tutoring approach
Let me help you really understand A-level or GCSE maths. I can identify the topics you need help with and fill in the gaps in your knowledge.
I teach maths using a problem solving approach, using real life examples whenever possible. I am patient and experienced in breaking topics down into small steps so that learners can make progress in understanding maths. I use real exam questions at every opportunity to build up student's confidence in tackling exams. Please check my availability before requesting a trial session. I do NOT work at weekends and only the slots marked available are available on a regular basis.
Tutoring experience: 25+ years
I have enjoyed working as a private maths tutor for 28 years and have helped many young people improve their confidence in dealing with maths. My experience ranges from tutoring 11 year olds up to A- level students and also some adult learners, especially trainee teachers who need to pass the QTS numeracy test. Also I have experience of tutoring GCSE 9-1, OCR FSMQ, iGCSE and iGCSE Further Maths. I have also written and published a series of numeracy worksheets that are used in colleges and schools nationwide to help people who have found maths difficult.

Lindsay is my life support when it comes to mathematics. I need her like I need air. Things that seemed impossible are simply easy now with her help. I am shocked as to how far I have come. I just don't think I can put my gratitude in words. I will be using her again and again and again.
I worked with Linzi on AS and A2 maths to achieve the grade I needed to get into my first choice university (University of Leeds). Linzi assisted me with homework tasks and any specific topics I was struggling with. She used lots of different techniques to explain a topic and was always very patient. At school the maths department commented on my increased confidence and capability in maths. I'm not a natural mathematician so the support I received made all the difference in achieving my final grade. I would highly recommend Linzi to anyone looking for extra support with their maths studies!
Lindsay has tutored me through GCSE and A-Level Maths, where I subsequently achieved an A* at both levels. Her deep knowledge of the subject, vast library of past paper questions and methodological approach helped me attain such grades. I therefore highly recommend Lindsay and her quality of teaching.
I've had tutoring from Lindsay throughout my whole 2 year GCSE course, and she has helped me achieve the highest grades in the subject. Her teaching is simple but effective and both me and my brother used Lindsay for our GCSE's. My confidence has increased massively and I feel a lot more at ease with maths, and have even started to enjoy it - something which I would never have imagined when I was younger! I hope to carry on with Lindsay for A level maths as my brother found her equally as helpful throughout Sixth Form.I highly recommend Lindsay to anyone who needs to improve their confidence and/or overall understanding of maths. She's an excellent tutor!
