I am a recently graduated, qualified Maths teacher, with experience working with young learners in a one to one situation.
I believe that tutoring learners one to one significantly benefits their education, and the likelihood of them receiving grades that they deserve.
I have worked within several schools in the North West, mainly working as a teacher, but also taking time to help out in other classes with specific pupils that the teacher has requested I work with.
I also tutored a GCSE student in late 2012, helping him to earn a B on one of his Mathematics modules.
When tutoring a pupil it is important to focus on their requirements, and this often depends on the way they are taught in school. Some pupils are mainly taught content in school, and need practice looking at exam questions. Others are constantly tested and handed papers to go through, but need help on the content.
Generally when I am tutoring, the first question I ask is "What do you need help with?". Not only so that I can tailor my lesson to the pupil, but so that the pupil can acknowledge that they need help. I bring my own equipment (although I do insist that pupil uses their own calculator when needed), I write lots of notes (all of which I give to the pupil afterwards), and I try to work as an advisor of the pupil, watching them work first and stepping in when needed.
