My name is Belle Cottingham. In addition to teaching maths to students of all ages and abilities,  I am an author who has written for the New Curriculum in Maths  textbooks. Among other qualifications I have a BSc & Masters in Mathematics & Learning.

I firmly believe that everyone has the ability to learn anything, if the
correct conditions and support are in place to give them the confidence to
develop their learning. The hardest thing about learning is removing the
negativity (both internal and external) that says you can't learn something.

Over the years, I have developed strategies to address the negativity
and general apathy that exists towards study. It is, however, important to
remember that merely attending a course will not significantly change
your grades...only people can do that. I work towards inspiring this sort of transformation.

My experience teaching all ages and levels have helped to formulate
targeted plans designed to reach agreed levels of performance. Prior to
accepting a student, I believe a consultation (by phone, email or in person) with the student and parent (where applicable) is essential.

During this consultation, we will explore what your expectations are ,
identify areas of perceived weakness and work through the study plans



I teach the following levels depending upon course,

Primary, 11 plus and Common Entry, Secondry,

GCSE, A Level, Equivalency and Numeracy.
