Carol

I am an experienced maths and science teacher and have taught these subjects for over 20 years.
I also worked as a school counsellor in Australia for a number of years helping students with personal issues as well as career and subject choice.
I have good communication skills and am able to relate to students of all ages. I have a good understanding of the individual needs of students. I like to use my sense of humour when relating to others.
In my spare time I love to play tennis and also dabble in art.
I am happy to come to your house for the tutoring. However, if it is more than a few miles away then I think it is fair to ask a small additional sum for petrol and travelling time (£5-£10 depending on the distance)

Tutoring Experience

I taught maths and science in secondary schools for over 20 years.
I have also been involved with running individual tutoring sessions with students/teenagers to help them improve their grades up in both maths and science.
I have worked at some of the local schools in Hampshire doing individual tutoring with children who needed extra support to improve their grades.

Tutoring Approach

I like to make learning as much fun as possible and use an interactive approach to tutoring with as much visual back up as possible as I believe children learn better this way.
I feel that it is important to check the individual needs of students and find out what learning style works best for them.
I like to form a warm relationship my students and get to know them on a personal level such as find out what their interests are etc.
I try to relate the subject we are studying to real life as much as possible as this makes it more relevant to them.
