I am a UK qualified teacher who has worked for 20 years in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. My specialisms are Maths, Science and PE to GCSE level as well as 11+/Kent Test preparation. I have also tutored adults who have occupational entry tests in Numeracy e.g. nursing. I offer weekly/fortnightly tutoring sessions as well as concentrated blocks of revision in the period leading up to tests/exams. I have tutored many resit Maths students. For sessions of more than one hour I adjust rates accordingly as I have only one return travel journey. Generally I travel to students' homes, though I am do tutor at home to adults and accompanied children. I supply workbooks and other materials as needed at my expense.
I have varied interests outside of work including distance running, cycling, travel and maintaining my classic VWs.
I have tutored school age students for many years and achieved much success in the UK, Europe and Middle East. I have tutored students visiting the UK who want to improve their English skills. I have tutored adults who have occupational Numeracy tests to pass so that they can pursue their career training.I have particular strengths in tutoring students with special educational needs, both in respect of learning difficulties and highly able students. I have taught many students with English as an additional language. I am up to date with the National Curriculum and I am tutoring students who will sit the new 9-1 Maths exam in May 2017.
1:1 tutoring allows the tutor to focus very specifically on the needs and goals of the student. Once their levels and learning style have been established progress can be very fast. With 100% of the tutor’s attention going to the student and skillful work towards targeted goals there should be excellent results. I have tutored students for extended periods of time, to bring them up to the expected levels for their age, as well for short periods of time to coach them for particular exams or tests. To me tutoring is about using enthusiasm and skill to extract the maximum learning from students. I provide feedback to parents after tutoring sessions or a short email, whichever is preferred. If required, I can set homework for students to bring back to their next session. Tutoring arrangements can be tailored according to need.
