Information About Rosie - Northampton tutor - (11 reviews)
This is how 3 referees rated Rosie:
I am passionate about maths, and hope to inspire confidence in all my students in their abilities.
I take education seriously and believe learning should be fun and engaging. My main interest is in mathematics, however I am also able to teach both piano and flute, having achieved grade 8 in both (please see my FirstTutorsMusic profile).
I have five years research experience at a high academic level into low carbon energy solutions, with additional experience working on EU level projects. This has given me a first hand experience of academic life and what it has to offer. Although a career in academia is not for everyone, achieving the desired grades at the desired level is definitely doable!
I have two years experience working at the local college, and from this a Preparing to Teach in the Life Long Learning Sector (PTLLS) qualification. I have also privately tutored students in mathematics on and off for ten years, having recently taught students through the 2018 exam period in Edexcel and AQA maths and physics exams. I am up to date with the syllabus', and have a large collection of resources. I currently work on a one-one basis at Bosworth College and have an enhanced and updated DBS certificate.
My approach to tutoring is to create a calm environment where I can give students the confidence to figure out solutions to problems using their own logic. My methods are transferable to other subjects, with the key to learning being a strong grasp of the basics underlying the subject to give the tools to tackle any problem, and of course, enjoyment!
I am a keen advocate of practice makes perfect, i.e. the more you do something, the easier it becomes. So, I will be setting homework tasks, but ultimately it is all about finding some enjoyment from what you are learning (which I hope my enthusiasm will provide!).

Many thanks Rosie for all of your help, just hoping for good results in August.
Even though we have not had her results yet, our daughter feels that she could not have coped with the higher paper without her help.
We would welcome Rosie back to our home anytime, and we thank her for all her help.
All the very best in the future Rosie.
Dawn & Graham.
We found Rosie very easy to get on with and she bonded well with our son. They had fun in the sessions which was so important. Won't have any problems recommending her to anyone and would definately use her again.
Thank you so much Rosie for your hard work and help it really is appreciated.
Rosie is young and relatable with great people skills. She's easy to talk to and we always had a laugh. I look forward to every lesson. Don't hesitate to contact Rosie, you won't be disappointed! :)
