Information About Helen - Walton-on-Thames tutor - (7 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Helen:
I am a highly qualified female teacher with over 20 years of teaching and tutoring experience.
I am a specialist in IGCSE & GCSE both linear and modular courses, foundation and higher. I have worked as a Head of Maths in a comprehensive school and Head of Year. As Head of Year 11 I was voted 'best teacher' by the students in the year group. I am currently working at a local independent school as a maths teacher and tutor.
I am fully up to date with examination questions, mark schemes and exam technique, including recent changes to the specifiactions.
I tutor at home in a quiet environment with access to the latest IT resources and past exam papers.
I am delighted that my most recent year 11 students all exceeded their school targets and achieved one A*, two A grades and two B grades.
I am a graduate from the University of Leicester BSc Hons (2:1), and have a PGCE from the same university
I started teaching in 2001. In my time teaching I have worked with top set students, SEN students and mature students.
My approach is friendly, patient and calm. I won't blind you with proofs and high brow algebra! I will put together a personal programme with the intention of getting you the best grade possible, be it a C or an A*.
I am a firm believer that it is not a teacher's academic qualifications which you should be looking at, but their manner and ability to get a point across in several different ways. The reason students perform well for people is because they like and respect them, and the feeling should be mutual!
At the moment I have very limited availability, in the evenings, but do have availability for longer 'booster' sessions during half term, or daytime availability.
I do not tutor several different subjects, this means I am fully focussed on getting students the very best GCSE grade possible.

Zara is a lovely girl to work with and makes my job a very pleasant one!
Helen sets homework every week and constantly checks that the topic has been thoroughly understood before moving on. My daughter actually enjoys her lessons with Helen, something we never thought we would hear her say about Maths.
