Maths and Music Lessons in Oakham

Hi, I'm Lauren. I am both a Private Maths Tutor, and a Cello Teacher. I work with pupils or all ages, and offer an encouraging and enthusiastic approach, to reach high standard levels. I am approachable and friendly, helping pupils gain confidence in their mathematics or Cello playing.

I am also available to play for weddings and functions, having played a range of Popular chart music, Disney, Classical, and Celtic Folk music for ceremonies in the past.

Tutoring Experience

I have been teaching the Cello for 5 years now, both as a peripatetic instrument teacher in schools, and privately. I teach all ages, from Primary, and Secondary education, to adult pupils, and have experience teaching all abilities from complete beginners to Grade 8 standard.

I tutor Mathematics for pupils at KS2 through to GCSE level, and additionally adults wanting to better their basic mathematics skills or who need help preparing for certain entrance exams. I have experience volunteering as a Mathematics TA in several primary and secondary schools, but have been a private tutor for the last 4 years.

Tutoring Approach

I am a very approachable and enthusiastic tutor in both Music and Mathematics, and believe that both subjects are highly beneficial in life.

I teach both Guildhall Trinity and Associated Board music qualifications, and believe that it is imperative to teach not only the instrumental techniques needed to play scale sets and pieces, but also to ensure the pupil thoroughly understands all aspects of the aural tests and musical theory needed also. Regular performance opportunities (solo, duet, and ensemble) are also provided and encouraged, to develop the pupils' performance skills and allow them to build their confidence playing in front of an audience.

I endeavour to plan my Mathematics lessons with many different creative aspects, to catch the attention of the pupil, inspire, and encourage them to enjoy maths. I take a methodical approach, helping to show pupils how to set their work out as clearly as possible, and ensuring they show their working, and understand each and every step of obtaining the solution to the mathematical problem. I think it is also good for the pupil to learn several different methods for working out, so that they can explore and find which method works best for them, as not all people learn in the same way.
