Information About Ian - Barnsley tutor - (12 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Ian:
I am 56 years of age and work as a private tutor as I enjoy the flexibility this affords me, as well as relishing the opportunity to work with students who actually want to succeed, hence my decision eight years ago to cease classroom teaching.
I mark GCSE papers and have extensive experience of preparing students for GCSE examinations, as well as tutoring able students at KS3.
Lessons in your own home, and I am willing to travel up to 10 miles from Barnsley.
I taught maths in the classroom for six years across the full ability range, including the independent sector.
Working on a one to one basis, I can quickly assess a student's true grasp of topics, recognise weaknesses and address problems within the subject. Once this is done, and confidence improved, students should find that they grow to enjoy maths and look forward to demonstrating their new found confidence in lessons at school.
My approach to teaching is relaxed, friendly and caring, which helps to create an effective learning environment, since young people learn best when they are comfortable and yet stretched just beyond their comfort zone in a non-threatening way. Each tutor session is planned for the student's particular needs, and regular monitoring and questioning takes place to ensure progression is maximised and misconceptions and errors are explored and corrected, and I am able to adjust the delivery to suit the individual student.

As a parent Ian was easy to communicate with and gave me more information than I had been given from my own childs school.
It has been a pleasure to have been in contact with Ian and highly recommend Ian to improve your chils maths skills.
Ian has turned up on all of the scheduled lessons and has been very accommodating to our own timetable.
Tutoring Kal was a real pleasure and I wish you all well in the future
My daughter found him easy to get on with and said that she benefitted from the tuition received; she felt more confident for her approaching exams. I would recommend him as a tutor; I just wish we had found him sooner.
