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 have since been building my own private tutoring business based in the North West London area.

As of July 2017, I have;
• Worked with over 60 clients, providing over 1500 hours of private tuition.
• Worked with students ranging in age from 5 – 19.
• Successfully prepared students for Mathematics GCSE and A-Level; English Language/Literature and Science GCSE’s; 13+ and Common Entrance; and SAT’s.
• Provided less subject-specific, but all-round academic support to several younger students.
• Diversified to provide study skills mentoring; along with university and careers advice.
• Successfully run GCSE revision and Mock Exam Days during the 2017 School Easter Holidays.
• Prepared numerous resources, including sample papers for the new Mathematics (9 – 1) GCSE.

In December 2016, I qualified as a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and am now offering this to people of all ages.

With my increased experience, I do have new rates of £35 per hour for new students starting from August 2017 onwards.

I fully appreciate the importance of finding a tutor suitable to you or your childs needs and am happy to talk in as much depth as you would like about how best I can help you before we make a commitment.

Tutoring Experience:

- Home tutoring since November 2015
- 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.
