About

Sam Grainger

Qualifications.

I have a BSc degree in Science and Technology having studied topics including Maths, Physics, Astronomy and Electronics and I hold a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from Huddersfield University. I am a full member of the Society for Education and Training (MSET) and I am registered as a qualified teacher (QTLS), with enhanced CRB.
Not that Teaching is just about paper qualifications. Subject knowledge is important but being able to adapt teaching style to suit the individual student is a crucial element.

Experience.

I didn't start out intending to be a teacher. I started my career in electronic engineering in the Royal Navy with an ambition to be an admiral by the time I was thirty. I never did scale the ranks that far, but I did learn a little about maths, physics and tying knots along the way. I also discovered that I had a talent for delivering training, which ultimately lead me back to university to qualify as a teacher. Having taught in the public sector for a number of years, towards the end of 2010, I took early retirement and started Grainger Tuition to capitalise on my skills in one-to-one tutoring.

Teaching approach

A good understanding of maths or science is built step by step. Each step rests firmly on the one beneath and allows the able student to climb to great heights. Unfortunately a couple of missed steps can severely limit any progress. This is a problem many students face in schools. They can't move up any further but the rest of the group has moved on. This is what I see as the major benefit of individual tuition. Being able to discuss a problem or point of confusion, face to face, with a personal tutor, not once but as many times as it takes to make up those missing steps.

Grainger Tuition is now in its sixth year and has built a solid reputation for providing quality tuition as evidenced by the comments of many satisfied clients. To read a sample follow the link button 'What clients say' below.
