Information About George - Welling tutor - (2 reviews)
This is how 3 referees rated George:
I am a trained and qualified mathematics teacher in the UK.
I have taught Maths in various secondary schools in the UK for the past 2years, I am currently teaching maths in a comprehensive mixed gender school (11yrs to 16yrs) in London.
My approach varies depending on the student’s needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-life example wherever possible in order to create a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions including problem solving and unfamiliar problems.
I usually carry out initial assessment before start with any of my students. The assessment are based on year groups; KS3 & KS4 including GCSE grades (1-9). This will allow me to pin point any gaps or move students ahead of the school curriculum.
I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use various assessment for learning (AFL) skills to check the progress of my students.
I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practise and perfect the student’s understanding and techniques. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but vital skills such as functional maths questions and the effective use of numbers and graphs.
