Information About Carol - Winchester tutor - (5 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated 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)
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.
More recently I worked at one of the local schools in Hampshire for 16 weeks doing individual tutoring with children who needed extra support to improve their grades.
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.

We have seen a huge improvement in our son performance in Science since he has started to work with Carol. Carol is always punctual and is well prepared for his lessons. My son enjoys working with Carol and looks forward to his lessons which, as he is 14 and finds Science difficult is amazing. Carol always make sure that my son understands a subject fully before moving on to the next topic .
We are very pleased with how the tutoring is progressing.
I look forward to our future lessons.
