Christine

I am a qualified teacher and mother of two daughters. I have worked as a home tutor for over 25 years and offer tuition in my own home, where I have a study with a large desk, a pc and a printer and all resources to hand. I have a first degree, a masters degree and a PGCE qualification in Modern Languages but retrained to teach Mathematics. I am a Level 5 Maths Specialist with a recently updated Mathematics qualification from Southampton University. I offer this subject to GCSE level. I also offer Functional Skills Maths up to Level 2, Primary English, SATs and 11+ tuition and Adult Numeracy, Literacy and IT. I have more recently offered job application and interview skills support. Until recently I have been working as a Year 5 Primary School teacher, focusing on Maths, English, IT, French and German.

Tutoring Experience

I have worked as a home tutor for over 25 years, and have extensive experience in schools, colleges and adult learning. As a home tutor, I have taught Primary Maths and English, for SATs and 11+ entrance exams, lower secondary Maths, GCSE Maths, German and French and Adult Maths. I have taught ICT, English and Maths at college and to adult Learndirect learners and have also supported adults with specific learning needs, such as dyslexia and dyscalculia. I have worked in a number of different secondary schools as a teacher of German and French and also ran a successful German Department for 7 years. I am currently combining my home tuition work with my part-time job as a KS2/KS3 1:1 and small group Middle School Maths Tutor. I am also able to offer support to adults with job applications, associated IT skills, and interviews.

Tutoring Approach

Before I start to tutor, I will always find out what the parent and/or tutee hopes to achieve through the lessons with me, whether this is to pass an exam, improve in confidence, go up a set in school, understand a particular area of the subject, or all of these. I also find out what particular methods of learning the tutee prefers. For example, many students enjoy games and computer activities to aid their learning. For younger students I usually use reward charts for good effort and achievement.

My students and I enjoy the lessons and they invariably gain in confidence, and most often achieve their targets.
