Maths and Entrance Exams Teacher in Poole

Are you looking for a Maths Tutor? Based in Broadstone, Poole, Dorset, I provide expert tuition on an individual and group basis. All levels covered from prep/primary, 11+ through 13+/GCSE/IGCSE to A Level and University Entrance Tests. I also run intensive GCSE, AS and A level revision sessions for small groups.

I am a qualified, experienced teacher and examiner and Maths Tutor. This ensures I have an excellent understanding of the new GCSE and A level specifications. I can provide excellent references and testimonials and have an enhanced DBS check.

Tutoring Experience

After completing my Mathematics degree at Trinity College Cambridge, I gained a PGCE from Bristol. I have taught in both the selective and non selective independent and state sectors as well as holding Head of Department and Deputy Head positions. As a result I can cater for and bring on mathematically those of all abilities. I also prepare students for 11+, ISEB pre-test, 13+, GCSE/IGCSE and A level Maths and Further Maths from all boards as well as Maths specific entrance papers for university.

My 11+ courses are co taught by an English Specalist.

Tutoring Approach

I work with students to increase their confidence in Mathematics and support them in the work being covered at school.

Depending on the requirements of the student, I will follow up work covered in school to ensure mastery as well as introduce some topics in advance to ensure students cope well when they are covered in school. As a result, the majority of my KS3/KS4 students are moved up a set or more during their time with me.

For those wanting long term support for GCSE or A level subjects, I focus on examination questions once topics are mastered but take time to go through any misunderstandings carefully to ensure understanding.

I am also available for short term/one off revision sessions in the early summer but be aware that this will only be effective if your child has done a lot of personal revision but just wants help with a few questions they have had difficulty with.

I have good 1-1 availability in the day time, and a couple of slots available after school in the week. I also have spaces on the following groups.
