My role is scaffolding and coaching students from any subject background to achieve their best when their studies involve the use of mathematical knowledge and skills. You can come to my sessions if you need to refresh, enhance, or strengthen your mathematical skills. We can work together to resolve a maths-related difficulty.  I am happy to provide advice when you are working out problem sets or revising towards a written exam or a presentation.

You can come along in any of my drop-in sessions or book your place in our maths workshops, or you can book a one to one appointment with me.
I am a theoretical physicist by training. In September 2019, I presented my thesis on Symmetries of Stochastic Differential Equations at the University of Essex, as a part of an MSc in mathematics.

I have been teaching for more than 25 years, mostly A level, Further Mathematics, and Engineering Mechanics at levels 3 to 6. My research is still in Differential equations and their symmetries. As an educator, I am interested in mathematical cognition, as well as the learning and thinking styles we exhibit when we study mathematics. I enjoy using technology to facilitate the understanding of complex mathematical concepts.

I am also a "Socratic learning" advocator, and I do believe in lifelong learning.
