I am offering tuition for all GCSE levels and any A - level mathematics material excluding statistics and decision and am available in Coventry until October. Currently, I tutor at the residence of the pupil (or at a place of their choosing).

I am a 22 year old student, studying for a Masters degree in Mathematics at the University of Southampton. My academic history in mathematics is strong ; I was awarded four A* grades in my A - levels (Double maths , Physics , Extended Project) and got over 85% in years 1 and 2 of my degree so far. I hope to become a postgraduate researcher and teach mathematics for a living.

Tutoring Experience

During the spring , summer terms of 2016 , I taught mathematics at a secondary school in groups of 1 - 6 pupils (GCSE and A level). I had to plan all my lessons to suit each individual , often setting my own questions to find their weaknesses. Since then , I have continued to teach individually alongside my studies. This experience is with both teenagers and adults.

Tutoring Approach

As all students of mathematics eventually learn , success in this subject is all about practice. I have a wide range of problems to supplement exam revision and offer realistic practice , as well as adapted problems intended to stretch any ambitious pupils. One of my best skills as a mathematics tutor is the ability to design questions promptly , that are relevant to any confusions the student has. No mathematician is a stranger to mistakes, but I believe our handling of mistakes plays a role in how good we are at mathematics. One to one tuition is a brilliant opportunity to have someone observe how you approach math problems , then suggest improvements that don't just correct your answers , but your way of solving problems in general.
