Personal Description:

I am a parent and Secondary School maths Teacher. I enjoy Maths, and I love to share my own enthusiasm and help those who find it a little daunting. Maths can be fun, and how you find it often depends on your own fears, and even on your relationship with your teacher. I love to see the changes in students as we work together to bring about an enjoyment of Maths, and to see the fears begin to disappear. It is such a privilege to be involved in this transition.

Tutoring Experience:

A full time maths teacher for four years, I teach key stages 3 and 4, so I am familiar with the new 9_1 GCSE syllabus. I also teach CORE maths at level 3, a maths qualification with real life application to compliment A level subjects with a high maths content (physics etc) for students not studying A level maths. Over the years, I have privately tutored students throughout primary and secondary education right up to 'A' level and BTEC Engineering.
It is never too early to start building extra confidence in Maths, as a foundation for many other subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

After initial assessment, I like to work on one difficulty at a time to ensure a full understanding before we move on. I find this is very encouraging to the student as they begin to increase in sense of achievement.
I recognise that the relationship between teacher and student is important for good learning, and try to make the lessons as enjoyable as possible -so we can both look forward to the next meeting.
Encouragement is very important in learning, and I do all I can to increase confidence in my students as we work together.
