Personal Description:

I studied Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Warwick, graduating in July 2015 with a 2.1 Integrated Master`s degree.

I am currently building a home tuition business and have so far worked with a customer base from Key Stage 1, right through to A-Level and Further Education. Alongside subject tuition, I have diversified to provide one off study and life skills mentoring sessions, along with university and careers sessions with several of my regular, older students.

- Mathematics (All levels)
(A-Level Modules: C1, C2, C3, C4, S1, S2, S3, S4, M1, D1, D2, FP1, FP2, FP3 - please contact me r.e. any other modules)
- Science (Up to Key Stage 3)
- English (Up to Key Stage 3)

- Mock exam seminars at Half Terms, Christmas and Easter.

Organised with another tutor, we ran these this academic year (2015/16) with a number of students attending. They are principally for GCSE and A Level students, but with custom made tests for younger students also.

I have tutored all of the subjects/levels above before and am completely familiar with syllabi. However, I would be happy to extend services beyond these
- I am familiar with large parts of GCSE Chemistry and Biology and have also tutored GCSE English so could support with these alongside Mathematics.
- At Key Stage 3 Level and below, I am happy to help with homework and provide general support across all subjects.
- I am happy to extend beyond academics with all students, to, depending on the age, for example, help choosing schools, help researching universities and help with school and university applications.

I really enjoy working with and helping others on an individual bases, which is what attracted me to tuition. Going through schooling myself, I saw first hand just how difficult it can often be, for the needs of every single one, out of often so many, students, to be met. I hence fully appreciate just how important extra one to one support can be for people of all levels and abilities. Whether it is just a couple of revision sessions to go over some harder topics, prior to that GCSE exam in depth help with a whole module or subject area or long-term support to slowly build up confidence with a subject over many weeks, months, or even several years, I embrace all parts of my work.

I still have a few places for new students for the next school year, and will be starting up again from the week beginning 15th August. With my increased experience, I do have new rates of £30 per hour (£40 for 1.5 hours, £50 for 2 hours) for students starting from August onwards. In the longer term however, I never up rates for ongoing students.

I fully appreciate the importance of finding a tutor suitable to you or your childs needs and will so be offering the first session half price. In addition, please feel free to contact me with as many questions and for any information you would like to ensure we are a good fit, before we make a commitment.

Tutoring Experience:

- Home tutoring since November 2015 (over 400 hours reached and over 25 students worked with as of end of July 2016).
- Two years mentoring younger students whilst at university.
- One year participating in and then two years leading a volunteering in schools project whilst at university (Reference can be provided). Project involved informal training sessions for working with the children in the classroom setting. During my time as project leader, I organised and delivered these sessions.

Tutoring Approach:

In the school environment, more often than not, a curricular is worked through, following often strict time guidelines, at a pace suitable for a group. The role of a tutor is, in my opinion, to help an individual maximise his or he potential and meet his or her goals in a way and and at a pace that is best for them. I am growing to use this as the pinnacle of my approach to tutoring.

Free from the bureacracy of the school environment, we will often have just an exam date to work towards, or the goal of improving competency over time. Unless you have immediate deadlines, I use the first sessions to get to know my student, ensure we are comfortable working with each other, and for assessment. I will then be in a better position to sit down with you, give my opinion and work with you to work out targets and to decide the best way to proceed.

I am very keen on learning by doing and get my students involved from the offset. Particularly in Mathematics - my speciality - having someone work through or supervise, particularly longer and harder questions, can do mountains for confidence. I put a particular emphasis on working and layout as this is something important that is often overlooked. For students of all levels, taking explanations beyond the syllabus can be extremely beneficial. It is easy for Mathematics (understandably in many ways!) to be turned in a monotonous stream of rules and techniques to be learned. I attempt to counter this by putting across my own passion for the subject with outside, real-life, explanations and examples. This can help with enjoyment, appreciation and recall. In addition, emphasising how topics relate to each other can be brilliant for further understanding and I do this where possible, combining it with a general, two steps forward, one step back approach, ensuring constant revision.

Particularly at GCSE and A-Level, past paper and course material use is essential and so I will use these with students, combining them with my own examples and questions (used with all students). Private practise combined with tutoring is brilliant for best result and I will happily set tailored homework.
