I offer tuition in maths and sciences to primary, and secondary school pupils, My pupils appreciate that I am always careful to explain the logical connections between mathematical and scientific topics, something which is not always done in schools.  Many of my ex-pupils have gained good University Places some at Oxford and Cambridge. One University Professor told me he was always glad to accept my pupils because they had a good grounding in mathematics and Physics.

My experience includes:  teaching maths to day-release apprentices, reading to slow learners, physics and chemistry in several comprehensive and private schools, and teaching a University Physics course. I was appointed as Head of Physics at Christ's Hospital, a girls' public school. I then became Head of Science, with a Department of five, in a comprehensive school in Hatfield, where the Headmaster hoped to start a sixth form.

I initially worked in the aero-space industry an later became Head of Mathematical Modelling for Dowty International.

I have recently published “Maths? Don’t Panic” a tutorial book for pupils in their pre-GCSE years and for parents who would like to help their children but are not sure of the best way to do it. Put “Alison Joiner” into Amazon, Facebook or Google and leaf through a few chapters. You’ll find these books are really helpful. Two volumes at £975 each, one on arithmetic and the other on Algebra and Geometry.

I am a member of the Institute of Physics, a Chartered Physicist, a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, and a Fellow of the Institute of Analysts and Programmers. I have a Post Graduate Certificate in Education and CRB clearance.

. Charges for Tuition:    £22.00 per hour for juniors,  £25.00 for GCSE,  £27.00 for A-levels,
