Began tutoring in Richmond Upon Thames in 1997 where I tutored over 500 students over the period, before before emigrating to Vancouver, Canada in 2005, started tutoring Canadian students, along with iGCSE students and continued tutoring UK based students online.
(Recently told that I've now passed the 10,000 hours point, regarding private tuition sessions given, which according to Malcolm Gladwell in his book, "Outliers" apparently makes me some kind of expert! Maybe I should add that to my business cards....)
Now back in the UK and taking students on for the 2013/2014 exams.
My degree is in physics & maths, with astrology. Yep, you read that right! It's a long story....

“A sincere thank you for all your efforts with Bel, giving her the tools she needs. She has said that maths no longer scares her and she doesn't feel sick or like giving up in lessons which is high praise indeed coming from her. That is exactly how I used to feel in classes. There was only ever one teacher who made things crystal clear for me - thank you for doing this for Bel. I am sure it is the foundation for learning that was sadly lacking all these years. Its been a joy meeting you.” - D. Kusidali
