Information About Peter - St. Albans tutor - (17 reviews)
This is how 3 referees rated Peter:
I am a passionate teacher with over 17 years experience including 7 as Head of Department. I have a proven track record and pride myself in enabling students to reach their potential. School observations including Ofsted have judged my lessons to be outstanding, where students make better than expected progress! I have an extensive knowledge of exam specifications and mark schemes and keep up-to-date with any new developments within the Curriculum. I have tutored many students over the years with great success
I have extensive experience at teaching key stage 3,4 and AS and A Level. My Maths Degree was attained at University College London where I specialised in Pure Mathematics. I have complete knowledge of the New Curriculum and Level structure. My teaching methods support these changes so that students are able to understand the different style of questioning.
I have a calming and encouraging approach to teaching and believe a student will best learn when they feel at ease. Initially I will establish the strengths and weaknesses of the student and then take a scaffolding approach to learning which is building on the prior knowledge of the student. It is imperative the students master the fundamentals so that progress can be made from a secure knowledge base. When students begin to overcome their difficulties, their confidence grows and with that, the belief they can achieve! Students approaching exams should target past paper questions and focus on exam technique. I am always fully prepared for my lessons and consider what resources may be required to support the learning of the student. At the end of the lesson, I am always happy to give any feedback to parents. Presently I'm offering a free consultation which is a chance to informally chat with the student and is useful in planning subsequent lessons.

Thank you. Alex has settled down well, is enthusiastic and looks forward to the tutor session.
