When looking for a tutor for GCSE, A-level or MAT/Step, who better than someone who is currently teaching all four?
I am a current maths teacher and maths graduate with a first class Bachelor degree, an MPhil in mathematics and a PGCE in secondary mathematics.
Currently working as a maths teacher in an outstanding secondary school in Cheshire (5 years experience). Excellent working knowledge of the GCSE and AS/A-level syllabus and assessment requirements. Currently teach Edexcel at GCSE and taught AQA until last year. Currently teach Edexcel at A-level and taught OCR MEI until last year, and have good knowledge of all exam board requirements. Can also tutor Further Maths A Level and GCSE, and preparation for MAT and STEP exams for Oxbridge entry.
Outstanding teacher with proven results. I believe in absolute understanding and mastery of the key skills in maths and in scaffolding and building up to more difficult concepts at an appropriate pace. I believe in checking tutees' deep understanding at regular stages in the session. Deep understanding leads to better knowledge retention.
I will gradually get to know the tutee's strengths and weaknesses and build sessions entirely around their needs; either in response to work from school, in preparation for assessments and examinations or in tandem with their ongoing studies.
Sessions will often be based around either developing key skills or practising them through examination material. I have a very good knowledge of the exam requirements at GCSE and A Level and bring this to bear in sessions.
With maths it is too easy to get a false sense of security, to feel like you've 'got it', only to find it all comes unravelled when you're sat on your own in front of an unfamiliar question two weeks later. I will point students towards additional work they can do outside of sessions to ensure they can still apply the developed in sessions when working completely independently.
I tutor from my home in Northwich weekdays after 6.30pm
