I am a fully qualified teacher with four years classroom experience and three years of tutoring experience. I am now a full time private tutor. I am able to tutor primary and secondary maths. I have experience tutoring adults doing functional skills maths and access courses for University.
I also work one-to-one in a school as a Maths tutor.
I taught in secondary school for four years and taught GCSE at both foundation and higher level, new curriculum. I also taught in a middle school, so have KS2 experience working towards SATs. Since tutoring I have worked with students of all ages from Year 1 through to Year 12. I always tailor the tutoring to your needs, be that supporting current classroom work, or teaching the whole syllabus from beginning through to exams, for students who are being home schooled. I can also offer online tutoring through skype and iPad apps.
I have a relaxed, calm manner, which I believe is important when teaching students a subject that people are under pressure to succeed in. Especially when it is not their favourite subject and they are doing it because they have to rather than want to. I have high expectations and will always push and challenge students to achieve more.
