Personal Description:

I am a civil engineer turned maths tutor after completing teacher training (PGCE, QTS). I believe everyone can learn maths. I love one-to-one tutoring as it allows me to focus on an individual student's needs and potential.

I used to work in hydraulic engineering and flood defence and this helps me show how maths is used in many different ways in practice.

I am a mother of four boys and have been involved in maths education from primary school to university: the oldest is in his 2nd year at uni studying maths, the second has started his A levels (Maths and Further Maths) and the youngest two are in year 9 starting GCSE Maths and Further/Statistics. I am familiar with Common Entrance and Common Academic Scholarships exams.

Tutoring Experience:

During my PGCE (teacher training) I have worked in two secondary schools in Horsham and Crawley teaching whole classes (years 7 to 10, low, middle and high ability), assisting small groups and individuals and helping 6th formers doing GCSE resits. In preparation for my PGCE I also assisted in a school in Horsham and in two schools in Hastings.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly, calm and patient and a good listener. I will start by discussing individual progress and goals and quickly assess a student's current level. I believe it is important to understand why a method works and how it is linked to other areas of math so I focus on mastery of basics before building on that for more complex problems. I will try to explain in different ways and find what works for a student. I think the best way to learn maths is by doing maths. To make practice fun and interesting, I include puzzles, matching activities and games. I believe this approach will help students studying for the new GCSE Maths which has more emphasis on problem-solving and mathematical reasoning.
