Current Head of Department in a local school. Have 14 years experience of leading a department. Current department is rated 2nd for value added in Herefordshire and in the top 14% nationally. 2014 department achieved 86% A*-C. 2015 department achieved 80.3% A*-C and 100% further maths GCSE. In 2016 department achieves 77%, and is one of a few departments nationally to reverse the attainment gap between disadvantaged students.....every student counts.
My approach to tutoring works around the philosophy that confident students in Mathematics are more likely to make progress in the subject. If enjoyment is there students tend to do better. My aim is to build the confidence so that the student can develop their mathematical understanding with a solid base.In 2014 , 2015 and 2016 all tutees achieved higher than target grades.
