Personal Description:

I am 53 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 seven years ago to cease classroom teaching.
I mark GCSE papers and have extensive experience of preparing students for both GCSE and A Level examinations. I tutor able students at KS 3 and tutor GCSE and Core Maths 1 and 2 at AS level.
Lessons in your own home, and I am willing to travel up to 10 miles from Barnsley.

Tutoring Experience:

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.

Tutoring Approach:

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.
