Personal Description:

I am friendly and approachable, I have experience of working with pupils with special educational needs and have tutored across all age ranges from ks3 to adult learners.

I am currently employed as a curriculum leader at a local school and specialise in raising attainment from Grade 3 to 4 and 4 to 5, however i tutor across all grades and have previous successes on the legacy curriculum at B to A conversions, raising attainment in KS2 and KS3. My current role also requires me to be very knowledgeable about the recent curriculum changes, as such, I am in an excellent position to tutor students following both old specification gcse courses and the new 9-1 course.
I am also employed as a GCSE exam marker with edexcel.

I have successfully tutored individuals in the past and have assissted students in obtaining Grade C`s at GCSE and improving grades from Grade 4 to Grade 6.

My current charge for tuition is £26-£28 per hour depending on location and key stage

Tutoring Experience:

I am a qualified and DBS checked teacher of GCSE mathematics. I currently tutor 4 GCSE students 2 following edexcel higher, 1 following foundation and 1 year 10 student.

In 2015/16 i tutored 4 GCSE students three target grade C (raising from E and D grade, all of whom obtained grade C in their final examinations) and 1 target grade B (raising from grade C who achieved a grade A in her final examination)

In 2016/17 exam series I tutored a mature student raising from D grade to C grade on the legacy AQA exam and a secondary student aiming to increase from grade 4 to 5 whom went on to obtain grade 6 on the new specification.

Tutoring Approach:

The new curriculum for GCSE mathematics requires a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts and a broader ability to apply mathematics, as such i tutor based on a developmental model following the stages of maths through fluency (AO1), to application and reasoning (AO2) and problem solving (AO3) across all levels.
