Who is Your Maths Tutor?

Ian Wild BSc(hons), CPhys, MInstP is a professional physicist who spent 15 years working in private industry, before finally specialising in the development of access software for computer users with visual impairments and educational aids to help children with print impairments. Ian has a passionate interest in educational methodology and alternatives in education. He is a regular contributor to parenting magazine Roundabout, having written numerous articles on education topics. Besides teaching, he loves anything mechanical and anything old. As well as being well-known as a tutor, Ian is very active in his local community. He has published a book on the history of Droitwich Spa Lido and was recently at the forefront of the ultimately successful national campaign to have the attraction reopened, regularly appearing in newspapers and on radio and TV. His interests are many and varied but he does particularly enjoy teaching maths, physics, chemistry and ICT. Ian strongly believes that one-to-one tuition can not only bring exam success in these subjects but also, helped by Ian's great enthusiasm for teaching and education generally, instil in students a lifelong drive to learn.

Ian read physics at the University of Leeds School of Physics and Astronomy before embarking on a career in industrial research and development in the laboratories of Zortech International.

Then on to Lucent Technologies as a Bell Labs engineer developing voicemail systems at what is now Avaya UK's technology campus in Welwyn Garden City.

In 2001 Ian returned home to Worcestershire to work for Dolphin Computer Access, authors of specialist software for people with visual and print impairments.
