Inspiring confidence and raising standards in Mathematics is my passion! As a highly skilled Secondary school teacher with four years teaching experience, I strongly believe all children can succeed in Mathematics given the right encouragement and support. A 'can-do' attitude with a growth mindset towards their learning is often the key.
Having qualified in 1995, I took a career break after one academic year in order to raise my three children all of whom have sat Common Entrance or Scholarship exams.
Encouraging and patient, I have a range of excellent resources and teaching strategies to engage all students. However, in my experience as a classroom teacher I found it much more rewarding teaching students on a one-to-one basis and providing individualized support. My main focus is to develop a solid grounding on basic Mathematical skills and then to work on exam technique and ensure students know how to answer exam questions in order to maximise marks.
I am currently working at an independent girls school as a one-to-one tutor which I find highly rewarding.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries.
With over seven years teaching experience including three years as a one-to-one Mathematics Tutor, I have gained invaluable experience of teaching across the curriculum and to all abilities within Key Stages 3 and 4. I am familiar with the new GCSE 9-1 grading system and the challenges it presents.
I have an excellent rapport with students, am quick to identify areas of weakness and able to explain complex Mathematical concepts in an easily understandable manner. All of my students have exceeded their target grades and have developed into confident, well-rounded, independent thinkers.
I have extensive experience of tutoring for Pretests, 11 plus, Common Entrance, Scholarship exams and GCSE D-C borders. All students I have tutored have gained entry into their first choice schools including Tiffin Girls School, Harrow, Kingston Grammar, Reeds, RGS, Claremont and St. Georges.
I assess my students strengths and weaknesses in the first instance to ensure that their basic Numerical skills are secure.
Only then can I fully support them at a pace which suits them tailoring sessions to meet their unique needs. I employ a variety of teaching and learning strategies ensuring rapid progress and success.
