Personal Description:

I am a specialist Maths teacher in a local independent school. I have two sons of secondary school age who keep me very busy. But when I escape from them, I enjoy cycling, running and socializing. I thoroughly enjoy teaching, always have. I especially enjoy teaching Maths.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught for the past 21 years, always at primary level. I have taught at various ages, ranging from 6 to 12 year-olds and I have taught most subjects. In the last five years I have worked as a Deputy Head, with a Maths teaching load. I also teach ICT and Science. Our school specializes in preparing students for the 11+ and entrance exams and we have achieved considerable success in this respect.

Tutoring Approach:

Of foremost importance is developing confidence, as tutees make the most progress when they believe that they are able to face the challenges before them. To achieve this, I do three things: I make sure I develop a relaxed rapport with my students, which makes it clear that it is fine to make mistakes as mistakes are a learning opportunity. I try to keep students engaged with fun and a variety of activities. Finally, I deliver a structured program based on the individual needs of the pupil. Such a program would include a balance of practice in arithmetic skills, attention to key Mathematical concepts and tutoring in problem solving skills. Each of these elements would be differentiated to the individual needs of the tutee.
