Information About Amy - West Byfleet tutor - (13 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Amy:
I have been teaching and tutoring for nearly 15 years with great success. I am passionate about Maths and Economics and love sharing that with students. In my first career I was a government economist and then moved into teaching after a few years. I have a 1st class degree in Economics and a PGCE teaching degree in Secondary Maths.
I currently only have availability during the school day between 9am and 3pm Monday to Friday.
I worked in a top performing school for nearly 10 years. I was Head of Maths for 4 years before becoming Assistant Headteacher for the last 2. I recently set up my own education **Contact Detail Removed** and am involved in training teachers, writing exam papers and tutoring students. I am also an examiner for Economics for OCR and Maths for Edexcel, OCR and AQA so am well practised in what exam boards are looking for. From this experience, I can really help students with exam technique and help them improve their exam grades.
I am personable, approachable and very successful. I have worked with students of all ages and abilities and apply a range of techniques and resources to suit each individual student. My vast experience ensures I am always using the latest techniques and the latest resources. I enjoy personalising each lesson to the student's needs.
I have access to the latest teaching strategies and resources and have a wealth of exam practice material.
Every session will start with a recap of prior learning and then move onto learning new content. I will move at a pace that suits the student, but will ensure they are sufficiently challenged at all times.

She has an experienced and calm approach.
Her focus on giving confidence back to students who are struggling has been very helpful.
My son is severely dyslexic and at times very lazy and disorganised.
Before meeting Amy, my son struggled to process some economical concepts and remember details.
Over the past year he has improved to the extent that other students in his class have asked him ‘why are you so sick’ at economics. I believe ‘sick’ means good! Also during class conversations, his teacher has commented on his range of knowledge.
One to one tutoring with Amy has improved his confidence, knowledge and organisational skills. I wholeheartedly recommend her.
Many thanks Amy, we look forward to working with you.
