Information About Radhika - Tower Hamlets tutor
This is how 3 referees rated Radhika:
I am a lover of maths, music, philosophy and spend my time as a professional actress. I keep interested in maths education and work regularly with secondary schools in Hackney, Islington and Tower Hamlets. The highlight of teaching maths, for me, is witnessing the moment when something has 'clicked' for the student.
7 years experience class teaching in UK secondary schools. In recent years, whilst focussing on acting, I have been drafted in to help with numerous OFSTEDs at schools. I have also mentored new teachers and set up intervention programmes to boost pass rates. Apart from class teaching, I have been involved with the UKMT (they organise the maths challenge), taking groups to compete and question setting. I have a PGCE in maths education and a MA(hons) from Oxford University.
I believe every student is different and that everyone can achieve in Maths. But perhaps more than other subjects, people build up walls against it and tell themselves they can't do it. I am very patient and will always try and find a new way to help make it make sense. I love incorporating puzzles, analogies and good old fashioned practice. 'Clicking' and understanding is only the first step- it is practice that then cements this.
I also believe in always learning, so I know how it feels to being on the receiving end of tuition- what works and what does not.
