Personal Description:

I enjoy the teaching process and am a friendly and relaxed, patient person.

Tutoring Experience:

I have over 18 years of teaching and tuition experience up to and including A level Maths, Further Maths and degree level Maths, and have an excellent track record of good or improved results. This includes classroom and private tuition
I have also taught Oxford entrance examination, Edexcel Advanced Extension Award
and Cambridge Step entrance exam preparation.

I am also a Cass Business School Tutor (a City University Faculty). Cass Business School is currently ranked 2nd in UK in the Businesss/Management undergraduate degree category.

Tutoring Approach:

Maths is best learned by 'doing' so one of my aims will be to support and encourage students to do problems themselves - so in the lesson we may for example study a topic and then do some problems. I will support, correct, explain, encourage or intervene if necessary. It's most important to make sure students are know each topic thoroughly, to be able to do questions on it. Sometimes the lesson may involve reinforcing or explaining a certain topic and practicing a variety of questions on that topic.

However I always try to respond to the requests or needs of the student themselves. For example if they want to practise exam questions then we will do that. I will always have in mind an overall long term stategy that will consider how to enhance their future exam prospects.

In addition I understand the difficulties which students frequently face in Maths, and I aim to identify weaknesses, reinforce strengths as well as provide support and motivation.My experience enables me to more quickly assess the abilities and knowledge of each individual student. Each lesson is an opportunity to observe and learn how a student is progressing and refine and develop an approach that works for that particular student. I try to provide a drive for students without them feeling pressured. I like students to develop the tools and confidence to approach problems by themselves, and to see links between different topics, and I also hope to inspire students to improve their skills and feel a sense of achievement as their abilities increase.

Success will of course depend on the application of the student - so I always encourage them to work by themselves between lessons. I may set or suggest questions if requested - or recommend they complete any relevant weekly homeworks.

I hope they will begin to enjoy the subject more too and see Maths as a useful skill that will enhance their Higher Education or Career prospects!
