My name is Leon and I provide tuition for maths and computer science to make these subjects easier to understand and fun to learn.
Using my experience in teaching and commercial application of these subjects, I am able to provide a thorough perspective that extends beyond the limitations of traditional classroom lessons. By presenting context for how maths and computer science concepts are used in the real world, I am able to make these subjects easier to understand with a complete explanation for how they are used to solve problems that everyone can relate to.
Self belief is the biggest obstacle preventing people from achieving their full potential. By using my learning techniques and support, I can help you to overcome difficulties created by learning anxiety, dyslexia and dyscalculia that lead to your potential being underestimated. By deconstructing the unnecessary jargon and written notation behind maths and computing, I help students to exceed expectations and achieve the highest grades in as little as 12 weeks.
I have taught maths and computing as a professional tutor and commercial trainer for over 10 years. My lessons can also be tailored to cover exam preparation for all major exam boards, including AQA, CEA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC.
The following are the subject levels that I have experience of teaching:
- Key Stage 3
- Functional Skills
- Key Stage 3
- Master's degree.
Whatever your reasons for considering tuition, my lessons can be custom designed to extend your potential to achieve the highest grade possible. I offer a combination of study support and 1:1 tuition that allows you to make better use of online learning to extend the outcomes you can achieve with your available time and budget. Whether you’re already a high performer or you find maths / computing a challenge to understand, my custom lesson plans allow you to learn at a pace that suits your individual requirements.
By avoiding the use of technical jargon and complicated notation, my lessons present concepts in a format that's easy to understand and practise. Each lesson is designed for you to achieve the following learning objectives:
Using custom digital learning tools, you will be exposed to a hands on approach to learning the concepts behind maths and computing. My lessons begin with a visual presentation explaining the focus topic, followed by interactive exercises that help you to experiment, express and reinforce your understanding. With my support and collaboration, each exercise challenges you to describe and refine your thinking process to solve a puzzle using the skills taught in the presentation.
Once you are confident in your ability, the lesson progresses to applying your understanding of the concepts to creating and understanding written notation and code. This stage of the lesson prepares you with the ability to work with exam questions and other assessments that you are preparing for.
The most important component of effective tuition is your ability to practise between lessons. To help you gain the most benefit from my tuition, the digital learning exercises are made available to you as a practise tool between lessons. My learning tools also allow you to receive feedback on your practise throughout the week or during the next lesson.
