Information About Melissa - Hamilton tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Melissa:
I am a hard-working Maths teacher in a Glasgow school trying to have the most positive impact I can to ensure young people achieve the qualifications they need for further education. I graduated with a BSc (Honours) degree in Maths & Statistics in 2013 and started my journey to return to schools. I am passionate about maths teaching and work in a department that is constantly re-evaluating it’s practice to lift the standards of attainment through up-to-date research.
I have been a maths teacher since August 2015 and as a teacher I am invaluable to helping young people through their school qualifications. A knowledge of the subject is important but living the detailed and ever-changing courses and assessments set by SQA is vital. In addition to the vast exposure and experience I have in marking exams.
I live the belief that the teacher makes all the difference. I take it upon myself to help build the necessary study skills by planning for the retrieval as well as the course content. Work is set for tutoring slot and retrieval practice of previous work is set for homework. It’s important that the tutee continues practicing skills and questions without immediate support. Support is offered after completion and detailed reflection informs future sessions.
