Personal Description:

****Now only weekend slots available****

Hi there I'm Jono, born and raised in New Zealand but with a background in English education. I offer a fun and engaging style of learning that aims not just to improve my students grades, but also their attitude to learning and organisational skills. I have been tutoring for five years, the last two in West London, and currently have nine students whom I tutor on a weekly basis, and more that I teach on a temporary basis prior to exams, so it is essential to enquire for availability.

My specialty areas include primary and early secondary level mathematics (including those notorious common entrance exams), GCSE and A Level English essay writing, and Geography at all levels.

Having been there myself, I've had particular success working with young students who are daunted by maths, low in confidence or simply lack motivation and organisation. Sometimes half of the task ahead is encouraging students so much as teaching them.

Now for the boring details!

Currently I am undertaking a Masters of Science in Environmental Policy and Regulation at the London School of Economics. Previously I attained a first class Bachelor of Science in Geography and Environmental Science from New Zealand's premier university, The University of Auckland.

During secondary school I completed Cambridge International A Levels studying Geography, English Literature and Biology attaining A*AA respectively. During this time I also studied toward New Zealand Scholarship Examinations, passed by only the top 5% of students in the country. I successfully attained both a Geography and English scholarship. This built on my International GCSEs, in which I gained an A average over six subjects including Biology (A*), Mathematics (A*) and English (A).

Tutoring Experience:

I teach a number of students in West London between primary and early secondary school level maths and EngIish for a variety of goals; common entrance exams for top London schools (8+, 11+ etc), confidence building, extension work or simply reinforcing school work. In addition I have over two years experience teaching up to fifty students at NumberWorks'nWords; one of the worlds largest and most successful after school tuition providers. Here I taught maths and English to students as young as five years old, right the way up to those in their final year of school. Many of these students I taught continuously year upon year and built some great relationships with; even those who were the most rebellious at the start!

I have also worked as an exam Invigilator and reader/writer assistant for three years at Rosmini College in New Zealand. In fact my very first private students were boys from this school who were assigned to the schools Learning Disabilities Role. I enjoyed creating fun and encouraging alliances with these boys, turning around their productivity and attitudes to school work. No learning disability is a blockade to personal improvement! With these students and their parents, I continue close relationships to this day.

Tutoring Approach:

Remembering how I felt as a boy, running off to the bathroom crying, at times simply overwhelmed in maths class, I realise the importance of a relaxed, friendly environment without any pressures or expectations.

The key to my teaching is being a presence of encouragement and working at the pace and level of my students. I have worked with students who get things right first time every time, and those who need several refreshers. Don't worry! I will help my students until they are comfortable with a new idea. One of the benefits of my tutoring experience is that I have many interesting methods up my sleeve that help me to get ideas across.

What you can expect from me:

- A tailored plan of attack outlining what we want to achieve and important upcoming assessments
- Working in line with the schools curriculum, focussing on certain topics, homework or exams as needed
- Record keeping of the students work progress after every week
- Regular friendly discussions and perhaps a cup of tea with parents to keep you up to date and involved
