Personal Description:

I am an experienced tutor specialising in A Level Maths & Further Maths plus IB (Higher & Standard). I am an enthusiastic Maths graduate who inspires confidence in students whilst appreciating the challenges that the subject brings.
I am flexible in the tutoring offered, for example:
~ Ongoing support to supplement school learning
~ Capable students wanting to maximise the chances of hitting an A grade
~ Intensive revision in the pre-exam period
~ Last-minute ‘emergency grade-raising’ after a disappointing mock exam

Tutoring Experience:

I have successfully tutored well over 100 students in the West Kent area, as well as many family and friends over the years.
My experience as a management coach brings a professional approach to learning. I tutored my own children (straight As at GCSE and A Level) and have been involved in the education sector as a governor at two primary schools. I specialise in tutororing sixth formers A Level Maths & Further Maths plus I specialise in support for Higher IB - a superb maths qualification but one that places great demands on the student who wants to do well!

Tutoring Approach:

Learning Maths needs a tailored approach. Some students readily grasp the concepts, but need tips to make certain of the extra marks or to reduce silly errors. Others struggle to understand the basics so an imaginative approach with new ways of tackling the difficult topics is needed. Most are in between and just need plenty of practice with a wide variety of questions! It's all about tailoring the learning to the student and focusing on exam technique.

I have a few after school spaces but am fully booked after school and at the weekends. I will always try to squeeze in IBH and Further Maths students! I can also accommodate students who have free periods during the day which most schools allow for sixth formers. I am available throughout the school holidays. Please enquire if interested in late cancellations.

I prefer to work at the student`s home but they are welcome at my home in Hildenborough. Sessions are billed by the hour but 90 minutes is more usual for A Level / IB students. Travel is free in the Sevenoaks / Tonbridge / Wrotham triangle. Further afield may incur a travel charge.
