A plug for my friend Chris Metcalfe ( email firstname.lastname@example.org tel: 07752 532811)
If anyone has children (or is a child!) wanting to do maths in Cambridge then they'll need to pass the ferocious STEP examination.
A friend of mine is setting up as a private tutor for these specific exams, and is in the process of making a website.
Chris is a brilliant teacher, and is familiar with STEP both through having been an examiner for it for many years, and from having been on the sharp end of it when we were eighteen years old.
I recommend him absolutely unreservedly.
The new website's here http://www.cambridgesteptuition.co.uk, although at the moment it's just a plain page with contact details.
Chris has taught maths to bright students aspiring to Cambridge at Villiers Park for many years, and while there he produced some short videos and activity sheets to be used while teaching bright teenagers that despite being completely impossible to find are the site's most popular pages:
I've resisted putting adverts on this blog for years, despite its rather surprising popularity, but I'm making an exception for this because Chris was clearly born to teach maths, and loves it, and I really hope that he makes a success of his new venture.
Please recommend him to all your friends. He really is as good as I'm trying to make him sound, and you really won't regret it!
