I enjoy the creativity and challenge of the teaching process and though I am a friendly and relaxed, patient person, I also like to provide a constant focus and background drive for students to improve their skills, understanding and confidence, and to achieve the grades they need.
I have over 20 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 extensive experience of teaching A level Maths on different Examination boards.
Additionally I have taught Oxford entrance examination, Edexcel Advanced Extension Award
and Cambridge Step entrance exam preparation.
I have increasingly supported students taking Maths modules on Maths or
'Maths related' University degrees. I understand the transition from school to University Maths. If you wish to ask me about this, please state your University, the year you are in, with module titles and brief content description.
I am also a Cass Business School Tutor (a City University Faculty), teaching on Financial Maths and Business Statistics modules. Cass Business School is currently highly ranked in London in the Business/Management undergraduate degree category. This year (2017) I won a student nominated Learning Enhancement award in the Business School Faculty.
I am relaxed and friendly and my extensive teaching experience helps me to tune into "where a student is at" fairly quickly. I find it important to have a good connection with the student so that we are working on the project together - to achieve the desired result.
I aim to identify problems, 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 and 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.
I always encourage students to work by themselves between lessons. I can set or suggest questions if requested.
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!
