Making your maths results count

About Us

darrenHello, My Name is Darren I'm the lead tutor and owner of 121 Maths Tuition. I am a fully qualified Mathematics teacher with Qualified Teacher Status; I have been working as a personal Maths Tutor for over 8 years teaching GCSE, A-Level, QTS Numeracy and Functional Skills Levels 1 & 2 to many students in the Cheshire area. I have exceptional success rates and have a flexible style and teaching approach that develops student confidence.

I believe my success with the students comes from my own passion for the subject and my keen interest in the study of how we learn Maths. I adapt my teaching to each student’s individual way of learning focusing on developing a strong tutor/student relationship in an enriched learning environment.

From the start of when we work together, we concentrate on building the right skills, creating student confidence and developing an in-depth understanding of the subject – these key elements coupled with hard work and commitment ensure that we maximise the student’s potential to achieve the best results.

“I have been lucky enough to tutor a wider range of abilities from KS2 to KS5. I am certain with commitment and hard work my students will be successful which will be apparent in their exam results"

My Background

I graduated from Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh in 1995 with a Mathematics degree and from the University of Chester in 2011 with a PGCE in Secondary Mathematics.

Since graduating I have enjoyed tutoring small groups and individual pupils helping them develop, learn and apply new skills in Mathematics. During my PGCE I taught at 3 different schools in Cheshire, gaining considerable experience and knowledge in KS3, KS4 & KS5. I was also lucky enough to tutor small group classes for gifted and talented pupils pushing their limits and practising modern teaching techniques. I also gained experience teaching SEN pupils with varied learning difficulties such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and Dyscalculia.

  • Hi Darren. Thank you for your dedication & patience over last few days - I have no doubt Laura couldn't have done it without you.

    Joanne, Warrington, Cheshire.

    Excellent. Darren has really boosted my daughter's confidence. He explains things clearly, shows patience when needed and is motivating at the same time.

  • Darren doesn't teach his way, he finds out how you work and teaches you short cuts and methods to get the answer. I am pleased to say that only after four sessions with Darren I was successful in passing my Numeracy QTS professional skills test. Thank you again Darren, I would definitely recommend him for anyone that in the same situation in the future.


    I met Darren and found him to be an open minded, knowledgeable and patient tutor. I had a total of 6 hours of tuition for my QTS Numeracy skills. I am so thrilled I passed my numeracy test which was my third and final attempt.

    Happy Student, Warrington.
