PE / Sport Science
PARTICULARLY LOOKING FOR DAY TIME SLOTS AVAILABLE FOR A-LEVEL STUDENTS IN MATHEMATICS AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION.
I am a passionate teacher of Mathematics and Physical Education and have been a full-time tutor for 2 years after teaching at a grammar school in Southend, Essex and have a great deal of enthusiasm about education. I have a Masters qualification in Education from the University of East Anglia, completing it over 4 years alongside my job. Before this, I graduated from the University of Essex (2:1) in Sports and Exercise Science. I am also a Mathematics examiner for the Edexcel exam board. Over the last 5 years as a GCSE PE teacher, I have achieved around 90% A*/A and at A-level 50% A*-A. Over the 5 years I have tutored students, I have achieved excellent results in 11+ examinations, GCSE Mathematics/Physical Education and A-level PE; alongside some excellent feedback from previous tutees.
I have a real love for both the subjects I teach and have had many positive comments made from pupils and parents alike. Teaching at a grammar school I know exactly what is needed to gain entry into a selective school and have given many group tutoring sessions at School in Mathematics to prospective pupils.
I trained in 2010-11 at the University of East Anglia (UEA) completing a PGCE in Physical Education. Since then I have worked at Westcliff High School for Boys, teaching both Mathematics and Physical Education for 6 years. I was also a head of year at the School and this is alongside my teaching duties.
I have now tutored for 3 years, across a range of different age groups (10 up to 18 years old) across Mathematics and PE with great success
In Physical Education I have achieved very high results both at GCSE (approx 85% A*/A across two cohorts) and AS/A2 Physical Education (A2 - 80% A*/A and AS 75% A grade) and have taught both for many years.
Being a teacher I am acutely aware of how teachers can drastically affect the experiences of pupils. I am very passionate about my subjects and expect the very best from my pupils. I particularly like to use a range of resources and materials within my teaching/tutoring and will not simply just teach using pen and paper.
Once tutees are familiar and can work with fundamental elements of the subject, I look to incorporate practice papers (11+/GCSE) to try and further develop the tutees answering ability.
I also look to use technology where possible, by communicating with tutees through Skype/Facetime and emails to further enhance their learning experience. I am very keen to set H/W and expect the tutees to complete this punctually.

Always reliable and punctual we are so pleased.
A real pleasure working with Ben at the moment
As a parent, it is very important to us that we get a regular weekly / fortnightly brief update to enable us to assess Joshua's progress as we have such limited time before his exams.
Ben has really enjoyed his initial sessions with you. He has found your calm, patient, friendly approach very encouraging and he looks forward to his weekly sessions with you. He does not find this subject easy but is really enjoying the challenge which is quite a new concept for him when he would normally have given up by now! Thank you for your support and continued professionalism.
Adam is reliable and approachable and I'm extremely glad we found him in time to make a difference.
He was very well organised & had an approachable manner.
I would definitely highly recommend him.
