Personal Description:

Ever since my own days at school I have had a real passion and enjoyment for mathematics. I regularly took part in the UK Mathematics Challenge and hold several 'Best in School' certificates to my name. I studied independently for additional qualifications in statistics and further mathematics at GCSE and A Level respectively. At degree level I achieved a 2:1 BSc Hons in Mathematical Sciences from Bath University, one of the very top universities in the country for this subject. Having completed my PGCE in Secondary Mathematics I went on to work at Ivybridge Community College, which has been rated an outstanding school in its last four Ofsted reports.

Tutoring Experience:

I trained for and completed my PGCE in 2008/09, gaining experience in Devonport High School for Boys and Tavistock College in the process. Following the completion of the course I began teaching at Ivybridge Community College across the full range of Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. I have a wide range of experience, from helping students towards their Entry Level qualifications to ensuring A* candidates achieve their full potential. I have provided individual tuition to students over the last two years and have good experience of working with learners with special educational needs.

Tutoring Approach:

My passion, experience and deep understanding of the subject allow students to make significant progress with their mathematics. I am friendly, enthusiastic and creative in my approach and offer a wide range of tailor made resources. I provide personalised learning plans, based around students' individual needs, and have an extensive **Contact Detail Removed** of subject-related material. I can provide tutoring at primary or secondary level, from Key Stage 1 all the way up to Key Stage 5. I use a range of different approaches in my teaching and believe that maths should be fun and engaging.
I offer a flexible service and can arrange times to fit around your commitments, at a location that is convenient for you. I am a qualified teacher and member of the GTC. I hold a current CRB and can provide references and qualifications upon request.
