I qualified with a 1st class honours degree with distinction in Chemical Engineering. One of my specialist subjects that I took was advanced Mathematics over a 2 year period. In 2001 I joined an educational company which specialises in delivering workshops in schools to raise attainment and achievement by building the students confidence, motivation and positive attitude towards their academic subjects. I was part of the design team which created new materials to deliver to students and tailor making content for specialist schools. One of my other roles included delivering the workshops to schools all over the UK.
I have been teaching Maths successfully for the last 17 years on a one to one basis. My experience working with primary children to high school students is huge. Every year I have prepared some of the students who were taking their entrance exams in private schools therefore my knowledge in that sector is huge. Many of my students are already attending private schools too. During this period I have also been delivering workshops to schools up and down the country to raise confidence, self belief, self esteem and motivation in young people. Giving them the tools (life skills) that are necessary to not only be successful in school but also in their personal life too. I have been instrumental in increasing schools overall results and hence why some schools will bring me in as a consultant to help achieve their goals. I have a huge passion working with students to help them get the best grades possible in their exams.
I truly believe patience and perseverance is the key to successfully teach students. Not everyone will learn in the same way therefore you will need to be very creative in the way that you teach. If a student does not understand a technique that I have shown them I will teach them using another technique. If they still do not understand that I will show them another way to solve the question. You need to have a number of techniques up our sleeve to solve the same question! My previous students have commented that I am very pleasant and friendly to work with and I do not come across like their typical teacher at school!
