Information About Raphael - Ladbroke Grove tutor
I am a first-turning-second year Undergraduate Mathematics student at Kings College London. I enjoy the challenge of clearly explaining different levels of mathematics to fellow students at my university, and pupils in the past.
I have taught; 2 students from year 9, 3 from year 10, 1 from year 11, and 4 from year 12. Each student had a very different level of ability in Mathematics for their age - which forced me to learn how to adapt to different abilities within the same age group, and what targets to set.
Before the first lesson, I will obtain the pupils syllabus, textbook, and exam reference. This information helps me understand what the pupil is required to learn to step up a gear in their course.
I then create a balance of keeping the pupil interested and focused - by, for example, telling him/her the application/theory behind the questions he/she is answering - and challenging the student with example questions, tests, and home-works - created by myself as to not let the pupil repeat questions when at school.
Once the course has been taught and the pupil is comfortable with the material, the student will then start to be prepared for the end of year examination. Apart from lessons on the mathematics, during this period I will also give the student advice on how to tackle the exam and advice for the day.
