I currently have a full schedule in the run-up to this year's GCSEs. However, I am now taking on booking for both the summer and the 2018-2019 academic year.
I am a Kings College university graduate with great feedback from dozens of tutees. I have passion for education and I have been working as a tutor for the past 8 years, tutoring over tutees. I have experience working with youngsters and teenagers both academically and in a sporting environment.
I have an outgoing and enthusiastic personality which helps to maintain the focus of the tutees and make the subject more interesting than it may otherwise be in a school environment. I take great care in providing first rate lessons and have a genuine love of teaching.
I now have over eight years of private tutoring experience. While studying I began tutoring History, Maths, Geography and the Sciences. This carried through from my A-Levels to my degree and to now. As a tutor, I have taught a wide range of ages and abilities. Ranging from those trying to turn that A into an A* and others trying to get a pass.
Feedback has always been positive and working with my students we've been able achieve better grades than they would have otherwise.

I think it is important to focus my tutoring around the specific requirements of the tutee. I find it is useful if they can pick out particular problem areas or topics they are struggling with so we can focus our sessions around them.
When teaching Maths I find it useful to initially go through the textbook and past-papers questions. I can then identify any particular problem areas and focus on them to fill in any gaps in their knowledge. With consistent problem areas being algebra, trigonometry, circle theorems and probability. The aim is make maths more enjoyable, instill confidence and achieve results.
However, the most important aspect of my approach tutoring is to make it fun. If the tutee is enjoying learning the material and enjoying the tutorial then they ultimately perform better in their exam.

And well as developing that also.
I'm sorry that you feel this way. From the limited brief, I was using the first lesson to understand what units your son was working on and the areas that he required help in. The more information I have initially then the more productive that first lesson can be.
Chris worked through past papers to identify areas where I was struggling. These areas were reviewed and then I was able to have another crack to ensure I had grasped the concept. Chris has also given me little, additional tips to help gain maximum marks. Overall very useful guidance.
