Maths A-level Easter Revision Classes – Online

These courses are designed to prepare students for the summer exams. The entire specification will be covered, enabling students to identify gaps in knowledge and weaknesses which will be addressed by the tutor. These courses will kick-start revision and give students the tools and motivation they need to continue revision up until their exams.
 
Learners are supported beyond the course through the provision of high-quality, comprehensive and original material. These resources have been specially designed and created to supplement the learning experience and support students beyond the course.
 
The topics taught are universal to all exam boards, so the courses are suitable for all students. Practice questions will be taken from Edexcel past papers. You can get an idea of how Edexcel questions are worded by looking through some papers here

Granville Sykes

Granville was Head of Mathematics and Deputy Head (Academic) at Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital, Bristol, taught at Clifton College and at Haydon Bridge High School in a career spanning over 40 years, teaching the subject at all levels to Oxbridge entrance. Still loving his subject and enjoying finding better ways of communicating it, he has become a private tutor and is much in demand. Granville graduated in maths from Newcastle University and qualified as a maths teacher at St John’s College, York. 

Jonathan Tolan

Jonathan has over 15 years experience working in a variety of educational settings. His first position was five years in a secondary school in Leeds teaching students aged 11-18, before specialising in teaching A-level Maths and Further Maths at an FE college in York. Most recently he worked as the  Lead Lecturer for Mathematics Education on Manchester University’s Teach First PGCE course. Prior to teacher training, Jonathan worked as a Social Therapist, facilitating group therapy sessions for people with Severe and Borderline Personality Disorder. 
 
Jonathan is now a full-time private maths tutor, something he has done part time since his university days. He prides himself on the flexibility of his approach and focuses on building students’ confidence in their abilities as mathematicians in a supportive learning environment.

Joanne McElroy

Jo has a degree in Maths and Sports Science and has been teaching maths for over 17 years in Cumbria.  She has many years experience in teaching A-Level Maths and Further Maths and prides herself on her clear explanations and breaking complex topics down into manageable steps.  Jo has recently set up a tuition business in the Lake District alongside working in the classroom.

Luke Greetham

Luke graduated from the University of York with an MPhys, having attained a First Class Honours degree (with distinction) and placing within the top three of his cohort. He tutored a range of students during his time at university. From GCSE maths students who were part of the ‘York Students in Schools’ programme to first year students. He’s now a full-time tutor, tutoring maths, further maths and physics.

Luke hopes to instil an appreciation of fundamental mathematical concepts to pave the way for understanding more advanced topics. He prefers to use a ‘ground up’ approach; by starting with the intuition of why an equation/concept is needed in the first place, the learner can see the whole picture right from the start without getting involved in the obscurity of the mathematics too early on. He hopes that he can assist in illuminating areas that the learner is struggling with, and challenge them on areas that they already understand. As a final note: he doesn’t believe there is such a thing as a silly question – the only silly thing is when you don’t ask something that you wish you had.

Luke
Aidin Poori

Aidin Poori
