Hi! I'm Trevor Mendham, a freelance tutor in Edinburgh. My students usually come via the StepAhead agency, by personal introduction from existing clients or you can email me directly.

I tutor both junior students and seniors. With juniors I often work to help them gain places at private schools such as George Heriot's, Erskine Stewart's Melville and Fettes College. With seniors I help preparation for the SQA exams. My speciality is Maths which I teach up to SQA Advanced Higher level. I also teach English to S2, Physics and Chemistry to Higher.

All tutoring takes place at my flat in Morningside (EH10) or online via Skype/Zoom. I'm a registered member of the Disclosure Scotland PVG scheme and have testimonials available.

Price is a non-negotiable £50 per hour, payable per session. My preference is for weekly 90 minute sessions, however I will do one hour lessons if needed. I would be happy to discuss any special student requirements.


I was born in the south of England in 196x. At school my favourite subject was Maths and I went on to Warwick University where I gained my BSc Hons in Mathematics.

After university I joined the computer industry where I had a variety of roles working for companies ranging from small startups to large multinationals. Much of my time was spent in support and training and I found that I really enjoyed teaching people on a personal, one-to-one basis.

After many years in London I decided I needed a change and moved up here to Edinburgh. I began working as a tutor in 2011 and have found it highly satisfying; nothing beats seeing the look on a student's face when they "get it"!
