Information About Georgia - Chelsea tutor
This is how 3 referees rated Georgia:
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.
During my time at City University London, where I studied a bachelors in mathematics and finance, I tutored GSCE maths at a nearby secondary school. In addition, I spent more than three years working at a well known tuition centre, teaching English and Maths to pupils aged 3 to 16. I am currently working as a private tutor and I absolutely love it! I also have a PGCE in secondary mathematics from King's College London. This course enabled me to develop my understanding of the pedagogy of teaching maths.
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."
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 do not believe in rote learning i.e. students taught a method to memorise. To me, it is essential that students have a conceptual understanding of what they are learning. 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. I will also provide techniques that I used to help me do well in the exams. Organisation is very important so my lessons are planned in advance.
PLEASE NOTE: Lessons are for a minimum of 2 hours.
