I offer maths tuition up to GCSE and A level standard in the Ryedale area. Formerly head of maths at Lady Lumleys School, Pickering, then Deputy Headteacher at Malton School, and a maths teacher for over 33 years, this is my main field of teaching expertise.

Fees are £25 per hour.


I am willing to travel to students' homes in the neighbourhood of Thornton le Dale, up to a radius of approximately 10 miles. So Malton and Norton, Pickering, Kirkbymoorside are all within range.

I may be willing to travel a little further afield, subject to some discussion.
