I am currently studying part time at the University of Bristol for my MA in Logic and Philosophy of Mathematics, and have an undergraduate degree in Pure Mathematics from Brunel University. I thoroughly enjoy both studying and teaching Maths and find that my students pick up on my enthusiasm for the subject, and often change their own approach as a result. I am also an active person - in my spare time I enjoy rock climbing and yoga - and believe that academic excellence can be enhanced by a balanced and healthy lifestyle.
2014-16 - Freelance/private - I have been offering one-to-one Maths lessons for almost two years now, including extra home support to boost exam grades, lessons for SEN students in school, lessons for home-schooled students and support for adult learners retaking exams.
2013-14 - Horton House Tuition Centre - Provided Maths and English support and help with exam preparation for primary and secondary school pupils. The lessons were usually conducted with one teacher to around five pupils, although we did our best to cater to their individual requirements.
2012-13 - Northwood School - Voluntary teaching assistant in a year 12 class and a year 10 class. This mainly involved helping individuals with exercises and exam questions within a classroom environment.
GCSE/A-level - I like to teach in a relaxed and friendly environment, so that a good rapport may be established with the student. This is something I feel is essential if the lessons are to complement and extend what is learnt in school or college, rather than confusing the student with lots of new or irrelevant material. Although I informally assess students during the first session, I do expect students at this level to have some awareness of their strengths and weaknesses. Subsequent lessons will then focus on demystifying those areas of Maths which the student finds most difficult, by going through topic-specific practice exam questions and exercises.
A-level units covered: C1-4, M1-2, FP1 (No Statistics or Decision)
KS1-KS3 - Lessons will be taught with a clear structure, tailored to the individual pupil, highlighting learning outcomes at the beginning. I employ various creative teaching methods to engage the pupil, such as using cuisenaire rods, card matching games, and in general making the lessons as colourful as possible with some unusual problems to get the pupil interested in mathematical concepts. I also use exercise sheets and practice exam papers, and I set homework to monitor the progress of the pupil. My priority here is to reinforce the pupil's ability to access the National Curriculum at the appropriate level.
