About

I am a Maths teacher with several years of tutoring experience. I am a PPE graduate from York University and have experience teaching both KS3 and GCSE, having completed the Teach First Programme. I am 24 and have already helped many students achieve their desired grades at GCSE and IGCSE.

I am approachable, relate to students and my aim is to make Maths enjoyable whilst allowing students to achieve what they`re capable of. Testimonial `We`d like to thank you George, our daughter loved working with you and ended up with a B, a big improvement from her predicted D.`
