Personal Description:

I have a passion for Mathematics, having studied it up to University level where I gained a 1st Class Honours degree. I have tutored well over 40 students at both GCSE and A level since 2010 and thoroughly enjoy being able to help individuals improve their understanding of Maths and gain confidence.

Tutoring Experience:

During 2009/10 I was enrolled on a PGCE course at Nottingham University and gained experience of teaching in two large Secondary schools. I have also in the past undertaken voluntary work in a Primary school helping children with numeracy. Since 2010 I provided private tuition more than 40 students in both GCSE and A level Maths, helping them to increase their confidence in Maths and improve their results.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to work with the individual at their own pace, identifying and helping to ovecome any misconceptions or misunderstandings they may have, building a solid understanding in the subject, rather than simply trying to learn and follow rules. My lessons are interactive as I am always assessing whether they have understood the topic before moving on and I have access to many exam questions from various exam boards which I use to walk through with students and also if required provide as homework. I believe that self-belief together with a 'can-do' attitude goes a long way to helping children improve their results and helping to build confidence is an integral part of my approach. Although I do advertise, the majority of my students come via personal recommendation.
