Welcome to Your Maths Tutor!

Are you seeking support for National 4/5, IGCSE, GCSE, Higher, Advanced Higher, AS or A Level in maths, physics or chemistry? If so then you’ve come to the right place!

Welcome to the website of Ian Wild BSc(hons) CPhys MInstP MBCS, an experienced teacher and tutor operating out of his base in central Edinburgh. Ian tutors students of any age in National 4, 5, Higher, Advanced Higher, GCSE, IGCSE, AS/A Level and IB at their homes or at a location to suit. He also offers online/Skype tuition to any students worldwide. Please click on Contact from the main menu for further details, or About to learn more about Ian and his work.

I strongly believe that one-to-one tuition can not only bring exam success but also, if it’s done with passion and enthusiasm, instil in students a lifelong drive to learn. I am passionate in the psychology of learning and how we can help each other to learn and understand – particularly, of course, learning and understanding of mathematics and science. I don’t believe that there’s a maths or science concept beyond anyone’s understanding: I believe it’s a question of knowledge, experience and confidence. My passion is helping people gain all three.

Check out just some of the client feedback Ian has received on the Testimonials page. Students often come to him through personal recommendation.

Ian is passionate about helping our students build confidence and grow their abilities in maths, physics and chemistry. His teaching is tailored to each individual learner. Click here to learn more about Ian’s tutoring approach.
