a reference from one of my students ( Simran) aged 16- with her permission. I struggled enormously with my Maths and English, however, with the guidance of Ann-Marie I soon caught up. Ann-Marie has helped me with my English and Maths, since I was 6 years old. After 10 years, I was the longest student she'd had. "I have just finished my GCSE's and I have got onto my chosen course- to be a social...

home-schooled pupils. When I meet a new student I devise an overall strategy, depending upon the student's needs, usually including the following: * Fill in any gaps in your son / daughter's maths or physics knowledge * Provide specific tutorials on topics they are struggling with * Make school lessons easier to understand and more productive by studying in parallel with their current classwork * Give advice and tips on examination techniques * Help with...

needs and requirements. The sessions are very informal, yet still structured and I prefer the tutee to see me as a friend who helps as opposed to a teacher- I find that this breaks down unnecessary barriers that may prevent learning. I also always aim to build a trusted relationship with the tutee where he/she feels comfortable. Please note- I am happy to show certificates of qualifications and also an Enhanced Disclosure check from my...

is very much tailored to the individuals needs. I encourage the children to understand the topics rather than memorising the material. This helps the students to apply the knowledge to many different problems. At the end of each session I set homework according to the topics taught in class. I also ensure the students are tested regularly to keep on top of their revision. This helps manage the stress levels closer to the exam period...

clued up on exam specifications and changes. I like to mind-map various themes and ideas in the students' first session, and always make sure that the ideas stem from the student's own work and thinking - so that they can remember it more fully and develop it in future (often students have more knowledge, ideas and insight than they realise). I can tutor BTEC assignments, written and practical as well as A level coursework and...

best! I find that a relaxed and informal setting works best for the student as they feel less pressure and it's not as nerve racking as being in a lesson at school can be. Some of the tutoring techniques I frequently use include working through question sheets with the student, and looking through past exam papers if they are a GCSE/A-level student. The topic the student struggles with most will be a priority. Please don't...

to provide as much support as I can. Most of my teaching experience so far has been centred around computer systems, but also some Sign Language. I now teach Mathematics at Post-16 in Leicester The beauty of 1:2:1 tutoring is that one can get to know the person learning the subject directly. What is their current strengths? Perhaps even in a separate subject, even. Utilising that to help maths make sense. And, I welcome lots...

progress at every session. I would, at times, test them on certain elements to see what has been learnt, but also reward them when they have achieved. I will also use the National Curriculum in England provided by the Department for Education as a guide to what the student will be assessed on, to ensure consistency with their exams and what is taught at their school. Furthermore, I hope this suggests that I will be...

full potential. Problem solving (wordy questions) and exam style questions are two common fears of mathematics. One-to-one lessons can be an opportunity to overcome these fears and to ensure that your child is on track and confident to undertake any future examination and/or coursework. I will happily discuss their progress and future targets after each lesson. And sometimes I will provide students with additional exercises to do independently at home to reinforce and consolidate what...

one to one tutoring. The subjects I have taught so far are Physics, Maths, and Mechanics. I am keen in giving my best knowledge and experience to the students, by going to their level.

I try to give students a vison beyond the books, so as they can take more interest with a vision all they study will be...
