I graduated from the University of Bristol with an Honours Degree in Mathematics. I am now a Maths teacher in an outstanding school so maths remains a daily part of life (as it has been for the past 11 years). In school, I had a particular flair for mathematics and achieved A band 1's at both Higher and Advanced Higher levels.
I have been a tutor at University, I have tutored over 20 students ranging from 13-18 years old. I have always ensured that my tutees met their Maths' targets if not higher. Additionally, I have been a Maths teacher for four years which means I know many different techniques to ensure that you can grasp the all the topics with great understanding.
Understanding is always better than memorisation. True depth in understanding eliminates the need to remember facts/processes/tricks/examples as much, which makes an exam a whole lot less stressful! (I talk from experience!!!) My aim when tutoring is always to foster this depth in understanding and not simply to get a student through an exam on their capacity to retain information temporarily. I achieve this by breaking down topics into manageable chunks and comparing mathematical situations to real life scenarios using analogies that are intuitive and logical, and thus far easier to comprehend.
