Personal Description:

Hi there! I am a bubbly and enthusiastic individual who is passionate about maths. From a young age, mathematics has always fascinated me. This keen interest that I had in maths motivated me to do well in this subject and as a result, I attained A* in GCSE maths, A* in A-level maths and 77% overall in A-level further maths. Apart from studying hard to achieve these results, I also believed I did well because of the influential maths teachers I had. I believe that every student has the ability to do well in maths; they just need someone who is patient, energetic, compassionate and friendly.

One of the main barriers that I feel could prevent a student from reaching their full potential is self-confidence. Sadly, many people out there feel that they don't have the “intelligence” do well in maths. This negative mentality then has a detrimental effect on their progress. As well as being there to help the student with maths, I believe in helping them develop their confidence in learning this subject. This is because I genuinely care about my student’s performance and I know, with lots of encouragement, they can thrive.

For me, learning maths should be a positive and engaging experience, and not seem like a tedious chore. As the American mathematician William Paul Thurston said, "Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations or algorithms, it is about understanding."

Tutoring Experience:

During my time at City University London where I studied a Bachelors with Honours in mathematics and finance, I tutored GSCE level maths at a nearby secondary school, City of London Academy Islington. One particular child, who I was teaching GSCE foundation maths with a predicted grade of D, ended up achieving a grade C. As you can imagine, they were very pleased to pass and this also meant they were able to enrol at the college of their choice.

Now that I have graduated from university, I want to venture into full time tutoring as this is something I really enjoy. I am currently working as a part time maths and english tutor in a tuition centre in Sidcup. I work with many bright and eager pupils, ranging from primary school to secondary school.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring style is very interactive. Rather than just spending a whole session talking to the student, I believe in questioning them and getting them to share their ideas with me. I will use various resources such as mini whiteboards, mini quizzes, games, questions from past papers, as well as working from textbooks that I will provide.

I will also tailor my tutoring for each individual. For example, for children who are more visual, I will use more of the visual aids. However, for children who prefer to answer lots of questions, I will focus primarily on bookwork, whilst still making it a fun experience! I will also provide techniques that I used to help me do well in the exams. Organisation is very important so I will always plan the lessons in advance to prevent any delays.

Areas I have experience with:
11+ exams(verbal reasoning ,non-verbal reasoning, numerical reasoning)
KS3, KS4
GCSE/IGCSE
AS/A Levels
I am able to tutor different exam boards following the syllabus.

For prospective students, I provide a free consultation session, where I will meet up with the student and parents/guardian and discuss the student's needs.
