As a first class honours graduate student from the University of Manchester, I have the academic prowess required to be an excellent tutor. However my enthusiastic and empathetic teaching approach is what will stimulate productive learning. As a student who struggled at school in mathematics not too long ago, I can understand and conform to the hardship associated to Mathematics. I myself also turned my grade around, being predicted a D in A level Mathematics to leaving secondary school with an A*. This experience will help me, in implementing similar results to my students. Whether your one step away from an A* or a C grade, I will aim to push students to their fullest capacity.
I have taught as an assistant teacher at my primary school for 2 weeks where I was responsible for marking homework, serving fruit and milk, organising PE sessions, teaching elementary mathematics, and interacting with parents before and after school. However I took a liking to teaching maths and haven't looked back since. I have taught maths at KS2, KS3, GCSE, A-level and first year degree level. I additionally taught psychology at A-level but no longer provide this service. I have tons of experience and this means I can provide a tailored teaching style for my student.
Having tutored at differing levels (ranging from key stage 3 to degree level), I have seen similarities and differences in common mistakes and misconceptions associated with studying mathematics and have several ways of helping students overcome this. One example is in that, many people attempt to memorise maths and I aim to challenge this way of thinking whilst supplying resources to utilise without my presence. I am adaptable and very approachable, to the student and/or parents and guardians.
Rather simply: I aim to make my client an independent driven mathematician.
