Belfast Tutor

Hi! My name is Colette and I am a friendly, bubbly female maths tutor with a love for teaching. I'm a very patient person with a strong belief in making children feel good about their abilities through confidence building. This I believe is the core ingredient to successful teaching. Happy, confident students equals good results all round. I am a very cheery person who will make your child feel very relaxed, welcome and confident in themselves.

I tutor both One-On-One and also in small groups off 4-6 pupils. I tutor ALL LEVELS from Primary school up to Key Stage 3 Level Maths. I also specialise in Transfer test tuition for both AQE and GL.
Here is a breakdown of the tuition I can offer. If something is not covered here please just message me and I can let you know if I cover it.

Tutoring Experience

My qualifications include a BA Honours degree in Urban Planning, A level Maths and an A in Additional GCSE Maths. I also plan to complete my PGCE in the near future. Most of my experience in teaching is primary school level teaching in both Maths and English. A lot of my pupils are at the transfer test stage and I am tutoring them for their exam/s in November this year and next year. I also have experience in teaching Maths to all levels from primary school up to Key Stage 3 which is year 10 in secondary school.

Tutoring Approach

Tuition takes place in my home office in the Ravenhill Area of Belfast. We can work out together which day and time is most suitable for your family each week. The tuition classes tend to be 1-1.5 hour long sessions and occur at the same day and time each week for the agreed time period. I offer 1-2-1 tuition for £25 per hour or small group tuition for £17.50 per hour. The group tuition takes place on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 3.30pm and 4.30pm and lasts 1 hour. The one to one tuition times can be selected to suit your family.

I have access to the school curriculum and a wide range of excellent teaching resources. I work within the current curriculum so your child's tuition stays results-focused. I have access to all the past papers, test papers and marking schemes to ensure your child is exam ready. I use games and videos to make learning fun and to change mindsets from having a dislike for Maths to being a subject which is fun and interesting.

If your child is nervous and shy with new people or at the thought of being tutored one on one in my home please do not worry. We can all have a cuppa and a chat together until your child feels comfortable with me and is content in his or her surroundings. I am very good at making children feel at home, welcome and relaxed before the tuition formally begins.

I look forward to meeting you and your child :)
