During my MA in Education I focussed my studies on ‘Raising Girls’ Achievement and Confidence in Maths’. I strongly believe that all children need to gain confidence in maths, as well as a strong understanding of the key concepts (and not just the rules!). As a tutor, it is my aim to motivate the children I teach and allow them to become independent learners who can make their own mathematical discoveries. With 11 years teaching experience in the primary sector, I have spent the last four years specialising in maths and teaching children from Years 3-5.

“Cathal has proven to be a fantastic maths tutor for our daughter in Year 6. He engages well with her, is attuned to her needs and provides practical, simple methods and strategies that work for her and are repeatable.
He is patient, empathetic and enthusiastic, prepares well for each lesson and maintains a positive, energised approach throughout. At the end of each lesson, he takes the time to debrief us and to incorporate any feedback into the next lesson. Our daughter looks forward to her lessons with him and enjoys his teaching style. We would happily recommend him to anyone, as long as we can still keep him…”
“Cathal has totally transformed my daughter’s confidence and performance in maths. His calm, encouraging and diligent manner has allowed her to really understand and extend her mathematical ability which led to both her enjoyment rising and also her grades. Cathal is incredibly patient, detailed in his progress reports and was committed to identifying exactly what help my daughter needed in order to excel. Having got my daughter to a good place in her primary school maths, Cathal also helped her successfully transition to meet the demands of secondary school maths, ensuring that she got off to a flying start. If you are looking for a tutor who has the kindness and patience to meet your child where they are at and unlock their inner mathematician, he’s the tutor for you!”
