My name is Kirk and I am passionate about teaching children of all ages and abilities the wonder and beauty of maths (no, really, it is!)
I have helped a great many children down the years get to grips with the subject and, ultimately, prepare successfully for tests and those exams when they eventually arrive.
I have a double honours degree in Mathematics, Statistics and Computing and have worked in the business consulting and financial services sectors for nearly 25 years; travelling the world and working on some great projects with terrific people.
I have a son who is in the depths of A-level studies and he was probably my most challenging student! We got there in the end and I am very proud of him.
I firmly believe the trick to becoming proficient at or good in maths is in the teaching; it is not the child's fault if the teaching is poor and/or doesn't open the mind and help them "get it", enjoy it and become confident at it. This is my aim - to help kids believe in themselves with maths and sail through. Few things please me more than when a child sees it and their confidence flourishes.
If this sounds of interest I would be more than happy to help. Best wishes, Kirk
Good at building confidence and explains things in way that you can develop and understand. Positive attitude and motivated to get things done. Very happy so far.
My Daughter has just had her first lesson with Kirk. At the end, she felt positive about how it went. Looking forward to future lessons.
Really understanding and patient would definitely recommend Kirk to anyone looking for a tutor
My daughter has only had a couple of lessons but so far very positive. Kirk has a lot of patience and will go at my daughters pace, he does not rush and makes sure she fully understands before moving on. Kirk is very understanding of additional needs and gives a lot of positive feedback, which helps build my daughter's confidence and self esteem. Would highly recommend.
