Ripon Tutor

As a highly successful Maths teacher I provide personalised one-to-one tuition based on the strengths and weaknesses of the student.

Tutoring Experience

I’ve taught Maths for over 20 years to both GCSE and A Level students. From my teaching experience I know that the demands on the student are becoming increasingly challenging with the new GCSE and A Level specifications and it is often difficult for teachers to give individual students as much attention as they would like. This means that pupils do not always get the most out of the classroom experience and are sometimes left feeling unsure about new concepts and lack confidence about their true level of ability in Maths. Having a personal tutor allows students to overcome this and ask the questions that they wanted to ask in class.

Tutoring Approach

I explain difficult concepts to students in a variety of different ways and show them how seemingly different topics link together to help build their overall understanding of Maths.
The lessons can be adapted to accommodate any new ideas that the student is unsure about and extended so that they understand why particular topics are covered in the first place.
Above all I try to make learning a positive and rewarding experience to boost students' self-confidence and help them to achieve their potential.
