After teaching maths and science for six years, I conducted research into the learning of mathematical concepts and went on to teach prospective teachers how to teach maths.
This experience has given me a sound basis for tutoring individuals.
I have taught maths to pupils in primary and secondary school up to A level standard.
Recently I taught basic numeracy to young offenders for three years and I have just completed three years with a local secondary school funded by the Government One -To- One Tutoring scheme.
I travel to the home of the pupils for one hour sessions. Initially I would try to understand the pupil's present understanding of maths and in what way he or she needs help.
I would then draw on my experience, knowledge and maths equipment and materials to provide the appropriate guidance.
