Solihull Tutor

I am a Cambridge graduate with a masters qualification who helps young people get GCSE maths qualifications. My Enhanced DBS is subscribed to the update service and available to view anytime.

Tutoring Experience

I've worked with children from the top mainstream schools in Solihull and inner city Birmingham. I qualified as a maths teacher in 2009. I've tutored maths to children and adults in a tuition centre as well. My maths specialism is aimed at raising achievement for GCSE. With my maths tuition, 2 students in top sets were helped to achieve a grade 7 and a grade 8 in August 2018. Their parents were delighted. I've recently attended a 2 day course at Bishop Challoner Catholic College in Kings Heath run by The Maths Hub to ensure my skills are up-to-date.

Tutoring Approach

I teach 60 minute lessons. If you have any information from the school, showing where your child needs help, this is useful. If not, don't worry as I start by assessing your child to find the gaps in their knowledge with a past paper if they are shy. Alternatively, if they are talkative, they can ask me for help with a topic and they will get resources on whatever they want. I use worksheets aligned to the new Maths GCSE 9 to 1 Curriculum and your child gets to keep copies of the ones he or she needs. All I need to know is the exam board (AQA / Edexcel / OCR) and whether they are taking Higher or Foundation GCSE. Happy to help with homework.
