Personal Description:

Tutoring Experience:

I have 5+ years experience teaching Maths in the state and private schools in the North East. I work with a variety of abilities, including training for the maths challenge (olympiads) and raising confidence of those at risk of failier or resitting their exams.

-- Maths is my speciality, I teach it to 9-19+ year olds. I have MSc Mathematics, PGCE Secondary Mathematics. Importantly, I teach maths pedagogically, so, that you understand and remember!
-- Russian and Russian Literature - I proudly hold the top grades in the Russian own equivalent of GCSE.

Tutoring Approach:

My explanations are clear and memorable. I use all major examination boards' requirements and governmental guidelines. You will enjoy a variety of activities in my lessons. I get on with people well. I use various motivation and facilitation techniques helping you to strengthen your confidence.

Some of my GCSE students received confident level 9 in Maths and Further Maths, others need support with moving from Foundation to Higher, and yet there are some who gain confidence in the lower grades for some very practical, functional maths. A number of primary kids acquire fluency and understanding in numeracy and basic mathematical skills. They aim for SATs or 11+, but importantly form the basis for successful progress on the secondary school level.

I encourage to start tutoring as early as possible. When there is no time pressure I'll encourage my students' curiosity and help them to become efficient self-learners.

References from outside the site are available in addition. They say that I am supportive; flexible to adapt to learners needs; enthusiastic about maths; knowledgeable.
