I am a specialist Mathematics tutor, and have taught for the last twelve years, having retrained as a Mathematics teacher, since gaining a First class Hons degree . I aim to increase a student's confidence in maths. I am lucky in that I have always thought of maths as just doing puzzles, and like to have a fun approach including many visuals. I am a strong believer that if you can 'see' the maths you will remember it.
I have taught in various types of schools, at all secondary year levels
I have a very practical yet sympathetic approach to tutoring, tailoring the speed and level to the individual.
I love maths and wish to pass my enthusiasm on - and believe that when people understand, then they are happy to do maths. I have had good feedback, quite a few 'lightbulb' moments, students saying 'oh - I really like algebra now !!', aswell as good exam results, and students regularly going from bottom to top of their class.
For exam preparation I use past papers from a huge resource of materials - from all exam boards. For GCSE, IGCSE and A level.
My teaching methods involve explaining simply with use of visuals the formulas and concepts needed for GCSE and A level mathematics.
