Esther

Hove Tutor

My name is Esther and I have just graduated as a teacher of Maths at the University of Sussex. I am 27, Christian and I love going to fitness classes. I am also a bilingual speaker of English and Hungarian. I have lived and taught in a couple of European countries which has given me a unique take on education. I have a BA in Education and an MA in Bilingual Education from Bangor University and I also trained as an English language tutor 3 years ago. Since then I have been teaching continuously and as well as gaining substantial experience with age groups from 4-60+, I have grown to love teaching and giving my best who puts their trust in me.

Tutoring Experience

I am currently a secondary school Maths teacher specialising in transition years from primary to secondary and Key Stage 3 (secondary, up until GCSE-s). Previously, I was a teacher of English in European countries for 3 years and a former employee of the British Council. I have also volunteered at International British schools and taught children at forest schools, too.

Tutoring Approach

I believe that every child has a talent and nobody is hopeless at anything- therefore I put a lot of emphasis on creating a solid and relaxed relationship with my students which enables them to engage with the material and strengthens their self-confidence. I usually do 'needs analysis' by chatting to them initially and after identifying problems, I vary activities in order for them to get a greater picture. For instance, I never focus on one single skill (writing or drilling exercises) but I include games and logical questions in my lessons. I also put a lot of emphasis on oral explanation as sometimes we can do something but not really explain it.
