Information About Lynne - Solihull tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Lynne:
A qualified teacher with over a decade's experience of teaching Maths in colleges and schools, I can help you to develop your confidence and skills in order to get the results you need in your GCSE, A-level or other Level 1/2/3 Maths qualification. I offer a FREE 20-minute initial consultation / sample lesson or, if you prefer, a £12 discount on your first hour-long lesson.
I'm afraid all my evening slots are currently full up, but I do still have availability during school hours for anyone who can get to me then.
I have been teaching Maths in a variety of schools and colleges since 2003, going up to A-level, including both class teaching and individual tuition at support workshops, and am now focusing on private tuition - though I'm also still doing occasional cover work, which helps me to keep up to date with the changing landscape of Maths education.
The majority of my experience is with the AQA A-level but I have also taught parts of the Edexcel specification at A-level, AQA A-level Use of Maths, the Maths element of the new Level 3 BTEC in Engineering, and Edexcel, AQA and OCR at GCSE, as well as a variety of other Level 2 qualifications (IGCSE, Functional Maths, Adult Numeracy, Edexcel Award in Number & Measure, QTS Skills Test).
Since 2010 I have also been working as an examiner for AQA, marking A-level module papers, and as of 2017 I now also have experience of marking the new GCSE. In addition I have marked Singapore A-level papers for the Cambridge International exam board. This all means that I have a very good understanding of how answers need to be presented to obtain maximum marks.
Are you finding Maths a struggle? Do you feel you have gaps in your learning that need to be filled in? When you have the right support, Maths is easier than you think. I can help you to develop your confidence and skills in order to get the results you need in your GCSE, A level or other Level 1/2/3 Maths qualification.
I find it very rewarding when I see a “penny drop” – when I am able to help a student who has been struggling with a particular concept to understand it and realise that, actually, it`s not as hard as they thought.
I teach at my home in Hall Green, Birmingham. Most of my teaching is on a 1-to-1 basis but if you have a group of 2-4 students who are all working at a similar level and would like a regular joint lesson then that can be arranged (rates available on request).
I offer a free initial 20-minute consultation / sample lesson, usually with both tutee and parent present, where we discuss the student`s particular needs and work on relevant skills, usually addressing one or two areas of difficulty. This knowledge enables me to better personalise the teaching at subsequent, paid, lessons. If you would prefer to go straight for a 1-hour lesson then I will discount the cost of that first session by £12.
After the initial session I ask for payment in advance at the beginning of each month by bank transfer or standing order. I also have a 48-hour cancellation policy.
For students making their first enquiry less than four months before their first public exam, I charge a little more: £35 for GCSE and £42 for A-level.
I prefer to tutor face to face, but can offer an online lesson (using Zoom and Bitpaper) if a student is occasionally unable to travel to me, for example due to an infectious illness or icy weather conditions.
