Information About Imogen - Derby tutor - (13 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Imogen:
I have a BSc from Durham University in Maths and a Phd from Derby in Control of Chaos. I have been teaching on and off for about seventeen years, and enjoy both working with younger children and the more challenging work for older ones.
I currently work free lance.
I started teaching in 1997, and have taught infants, juniors, secondary, GCSE, A-Level and University Level, including in primary schools, Derby University and the Open University.
I work free-lance, with venue negotiable, sometimes in the student's home, sometimes in my home, and sometimes in an appropriate public venue.
I mainly seek to fill in the gaps in students' knowledge, though I have also been the main Maths tutor for a home-schooled teenager.
For GCSE and A-Level students I very much focus on going through past papers so that they get the feel for what the exam will be like, and then we can also give extra attention to any area of difficulty.
For younger students, I use a combination of finding out what the student has been doing at school, offering further help in that if required, and working through topics that the student is weak on, or starting new topics. I have a range o**Contact Detail Removed**s that follow the National Curriculum.

As soon as the student arrived with her mother Kalajeeta, Kalajeeta raised the matter of the fees. My normal fee was £25 per hour for AS Level, but I had told Kalajeeta in the correspsondence before we accepted each other that they could have a two-hour slot for £45 (rather than £50). Kalajeeta asked for a two-hour slot on Tuesday, but as soon as they arrived Kalajeeta said that it was £45 for two hours or £19 for one hour, and that First Tutors had said it would be only £19 for the first hour. I had to correct her on this, which was uncomfortable, but she kept repeating that it was £19 if they only had one hour. I continued to maintain, politely, that it was £25 for one hour or £45 for the two. I do sometimes get clients who try to get a reduction, but usually they are not so persistent and do not claim inaccurately that First Tutors had said they could. In the end we had one hour, and Kalajeeta paid £25.
I am sorry but it is not altogether surprising that she then decided to apply for a refund from First Tutors by giving me negative feedback.
