Richard Glascodine


I have taught mathematics and music in secondary schools for the past eight years, and I have been professionally tutoring full time for the past 5. I left teaching on a high, having been a member of a mathematics department belonging to an outstanding secondary school in Leeds. I am now a professional online tutor. I am also an examiner for Edexcel (which means marking real life exam scripts during the summer). This gives me a unique insight into the examination process, and in turn, gives me a greater awareness of what needs to happen for my students to successfully pass their exams. I tutor KS2 KS3, 11+ Maths, 13+ Maths, GCSE, iGCSE, and Functional Skills.

Professional background

Ba(Hons) , PGCE, Cert Ed. GCSE Exam Board Examiner

How I work

A confident learner is a successful learner and in maths that confidence is crucial. I will help build up my tutee’s confidence so that they will feel able to answer questions with ease! I will encourage, not humiliate, and I will ensure that topics are pitched perfectly so pupils can make progress straight away. Exam rubric (what the exam boards want to see and how they want to see it) will feature heavily and we will work together so weaknesses will be consolidated over time. As I have had lots of experience teaching in schools this gives me a unique insight into how teachers think, and what they would like to see from their pupils who are engaged in private tuition. Teaching is a two way process so expect questions – lots of them! If any stumbling blocks have been encountered I will use a range of questionning techniques to get to the bottom of the problem.
