I have many years of experience in IT and very passionate about Science especially Astrophysics. I'm currently studying towards the BSc in Life Sciences and Diploma in Physical Sciences with the Open University. I'm also about to complete a course in Modern Cosmology with Liverpool John Moores University.
I started out as private tutor teaching Mathematics 6+ years ago and IT skills 10+ years ago and I've never looked back since.
My pupils ages range from 12+ to 80+ years of age and their needs are varied. Six years and several 11+, KS2, KS3, GCSE and IGCSE pupils later, guiding my pupils through their learning in Mathematics, and ultimately seeing that they achieved very good marks (up to A-Star of course!) has brought me a sense of joy and job satisfaction on numerous occasions. My goal is to fill a vacuum that traditional classroom learning may cause, by providing my learners with the necessary skills to confidently apply complex mathematical skills. The application of knowledge, alongside a good dose of confidence, is often the key to a successful and pleasant journey into learning.
My general approach to teaching Maths & Science, especially Mathematics, is to understand the element of worry and fear that is often associated with these subjects. Therefore I ensure that my pupils see learning as a 'game' and something that they 'can do'! Also, I help my pupils in understanding how to play their strengths and strategically make use of useful techniques to pass exams.
