You're 'so bad at maths' and can't do the calculations
You understand everything but still can’t answer the exam questions

You have no idea how to study and you feel like giving up
…you have found the right tutor!
About meThis is me, Gemma Shearer
I’m a full time private tutor with 5 years experience.
I was not the best student at secondary school but after a break from education I returned to study and went on to get straight As at A level and an MSc and first class BSc honors degree.
I have also been awarded Post Graduate Certificate in Professional Studies in Science Education so I know the ins and outs of curriculm design, learning methodologies, teaching styles and barriers to learning.
You can read my full story here.
I’ve helped dozens of students fulfill their potential. You can read what they have to say about me on my testimonials page.
You can also read more about me on The Tutor Pages.

How does online tuition work?Online tuition probably isn't what you had in mind when you first considered having tuition. Let me show you why it isn't second best and why it can be even better than 'in person' tuition
Lessons take place in my online classroom using skype for audio.
You don’t need any special software and you can even have tuition on your iPad! Other than than you will need a skype account (I can help you set this up if you’re not sure), a mic (the in-built mic on laptops is usually fine) and a pair of earphones (I just use the ones that came with my phone.)
Before our first lesson I will arrange a quick trial session with you to say hello, get you all set up and give you a taste of what it’s like to have online tuition.
At first, some people find the idea of online tuition a little weird but once they try it they realise it’s a lot less hassle than in person tuition and just as good. Some of my students who previously had in person tuition have switched to online tuition because they prefer it.
If you’re still not convinced, read this.
