Abingdon Tutor

I am an experienced, qualified Maths teacher and private tutor with excellent qualifications (Maths M.A. Oxford University, Maths P.G.C.E. Cambridge University) specialising in GCSE and A Level exam preparation. I am committed to helping students improve their grades and I tailor classes to suit individuals by considering those topics that a student feels they are weak on and also doing my own assessments to ensure all areas are covered. I go through appropriate examples with students and then ask them to explain concepts back to me to check they have really understood. This helps students gain confidence which is often lacking in Maths.

Tutoring Experience

3 years secondary school teacher, 15 years private tuition. Most students come through personal recommendations from parents or students.

What students say:

"Thank you Mrs Richens for all the help over the past year. I wouldn't have been able to do it at all without you. I really do appreciate it."

"Thanks again for all your hard work, it certainly moved my daughter up a grade in Maths."

"This is just to let you know that Will got an A in maths. Thanks for all the help - I'm sure your lessons helped a lot."

Tutoring Approach

I have found that the key to success for any student is first to understand topics in an encouraging, relaxed environment and to practise these skills and exercises at home. This involves a commitment from the student to complete assignments so that we can progress and build on knowledge each week. I am happy to provide references from many happy parents or students.
