Information About Michael - Bourne tutor - (2 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Michael:
I am a qualified, young teacher with 5 years of classroom experience and 1 year as a GCSE examiner for AQA. I currently live in Bourne and teach Mathematics to all years and abilities in secondary education. I thoroughly enjoy Mathematics and I am always keen to create interesting puzzles or questions that are accessible and relevent to students.
I am currently in my 3rd year as a qualified teacher and my 5th overall in the education sector. I have taught each year group from year 7 up to 13 and a broad range of ability levels. I have fully taught the new GCSE AQA specification and I have been an AQA examiner for the 2016/17 Higher exam. This experience has been invaluable in providing insight into the exam techniques students need to pass this new, more rigourous exam course. In A level, I have taught the following Edexcel modules: C1, C2, C3, C4, M1 and S1 and I will be teaching the new OCR A level specification this year.
My approach to tutoring is simply to act as an additional source of explanation and information. I aim to identify and provide support on weaker topics and target the core skills which underpin Mathematics. Students should be ready during tutor sessions with questions and examples from their lessons to ask about, things they struggled with or did not understand during lessons.
For students approaching exams, their normal teacher will have past papers that they will be using for assessments and practice. I can go through these papers once they have been completed, discussing the best strategies for individual questions which there is often not enough time to do properly in class.
One thing I must insist upon throughout any tuition is a good level of politeness and a willingness to listen and follow instructions.
