Information About Michael - Loughborough tutor - (7 reviews)
This is how 3 referees rated Michael:
I am a qualified Maths teacher, currently working at a school in Leicestershire.
I have a PGCE through Leicester University and a degree in Mathematics with Mathematics Education from Loughborough University. I have also been tutoring students privately for several years.
I am patient, always willing to adapt to the pupil's needs and have a calm and easy going manner. All of my previous students have commented on my friendly and patient approach and my willingness to adapt any material to that which suits the student best.
As mentioned above, I am a qualified Maths teacher and I have been tutoring for many years while studying at university.
I have worked in high schools as a Learning Support Assistant which has given me a lot of experience working with students who have learning difficulties, and the experience has also allowed me to refine a broad range of teaching methods. I have found that as every student is different, no two ever learn the same way. My aim is find out how the student learns and then boost their performance whether it is passing a class test or getting an A* at A-Level.
I am happy to pass on recommendations from previous tutees if required.
I like to encourage students to learn from basic principles and find that my students respond best from practical experience and learning how the difficult subjects such as Maths and Physics can have real world applications.
I tutor predominantly Mathematics and Physics at a secondary level (ages 11-18), and specialise in Maths at GCSE and A-Level. I find the key to tutoring effectively is to put abstract concepts into real life applications and scenarios that the student is familiar with.

Her confidence in her own abilities has really soared and in turn her maths lessons have become more enjoyable.
Mike has a great way of helping to learn in a fun way using tricks, hints, praise and methods which help her to remember the things she was struggling with. All in all a great tutor!
