Information About Leigh - Woking tutor - (5 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Leigh:
I really enjoy helping people to understand and enjoy mathematics, especially at 11+, GCSE and A level.
I have experience of computer programming and mathematical modelling in the private sector, and have also worked in government in a number of roles for over 25 years. In the latter my posts included working as a statistician, and recruiting and coaching high performing graduates and apprentices to perform well in their careers. I am now concentrating on tutoring, which uses a combination of the skills I have built over my career.
I tutor AS, A2 and GCSE Maths, and many of my tutees have had success in their exams and secured university places. For re-takes I tutor "legacy" modules C1, C2, S1 and D1, and A2 modules C3, C4 and S2. I also have experience with helping tutees pass 11+ tests, the numeracy test for prospective teachers, and undergraduate statistics. I am happy to consider other qualifications and modules - please just ask!
I also enjoy tutoring on a voluntary basis for a charity which specialises in providing Mathematics and English tuition to school students who are preparing for GCSEs.
I know that some people find Mathematics to be a challenging subject, and that this can cause them to lose confidence in their abilities. My own challenge is to find out how best to communicate mathematical concepts and find ways to improve the understanding, application of ideas and the confidence of the students. And to try to make it enjoyable!

AS level in particular requires the acquisition of a lot of different maths skills all at the same time. It was a great pleasure to work with your son and to see his skills and confidence grow.
Leigh is very easy to get on with and works at the student pace to make sure she gets exactly the right level of tuition.
We will be asking Leigh back for the A level second year.
I would recommend you to any individual who is needing a great tutor!
I have really enjoyed working with your sons this year, and look forward to continuing next year.
