Originally from Falmouth in Cornwall attending Cornwall College for A Levels, Peter went on to study Mathematics at the University of Southampton, graduating in 1978 after completing a PGCE. He is now Head of Mathematics at a school in Southampton. Peter also worked for Edexcel as a C4 marker for the June 08 and 09 examinations gaining "not only an insight into how papers are assessed but also to the misconceptions students have in mathematics at this level".

"I appreciate the freedom given to me as an author to write and present the material in the way I think fit after many years of teaching mathematics."

"I joined ZigZag originally to promote the International GCSE Mathematics Revision guide which was completed in 2006. At this time a resource for the International Examination in Mathematics did not exist and I wanted to use my expertise to help prepare students for this examination. I have subsequently written Higher and Foundation homework sheets."

"I received valuable advice from the support team and they were always willing to listen and offer guidance where necessary."

Peter is currently working on a set of Topic Tests for Edexcel FP1 - FP3.
