I'm a friendly down-to-earth Mathematics graduate of Swansea University (Mathematics BSc, First Class Honours) and Imperial College, London (Applied Mathematics MSc, Merit). I have also completed a post graduate certificate in Business Performance Management at the University of Salford, Manchester (Merit).
I am currently working as a Mathematician on a variety of projects. I work full time hours however have flexible working so can generally fit in around my students requirements regarding session times. My preference is having sessions during evenings between 4-6pm roughly but very flexible!
I have tutored various ages and skills, from Primary education all the way through to A-level. I have had one year work experience in one of the top schools in the country, working as an assistant Mathematics teacher. This included general classroom assistance, teaching and mentoring small groups, as well as whole class teaching. I completed the Student Associate Scheme at a Bromley school, through Plymouth University. I can offer support to students currently attending school or full GCSE/A level teaching.
I am pleased to say my students all progress well, and often come top of their cohort, with a previous student coming top of his year in his GCSE exam. A lot of my students comment on my explaining skills and find it easier to understand my teaching methods than those taught at school. They like my flexibility as I work with them, and am happy to alter my methods if they already are comfortable with theirs, so that I can strengthen their understanding. I welcome questions and see improvements within weeks of teaching, particularly less confident students, as they find me easy to approach and are comfortable asking questions.
I work with the student to discover what their best way of working is. Some people like to do practice questions, in which case I have a number of text books which I can get these from. I have a very open mind when it comes to learning styles, and have completed an essay on this subject. I do however, provide direction when necessary, in order to fulfill the students capabilities. I also usually provide homework.
