Tutoring Experience

Mathematics has always been my subject, and people tell me that I have the knack for explaining things well and clearly, with the ability to connect with people at all levels.
I've been tutoring for over five years. I'm able to work with children during their secondary school years - approx age 11 - 18, but I am specialising in GCSE years.
I'm happy tutoring individually or in small groups of up to four people. I am also available to tutor adults. Whether it's embedding foundation mathematics, passing GSCEs or help with A-levels (including further maths) then get in contact for an introductory chat.

Tutoring Approach

Delivering what is important for you - this is what is important for me. For example, if your child is struggling with maths at age 11, then maybe what is needed is good one-to-one embedding of basic principles to give them the confidence to succeed at maths during the rest of their school years. No more "I'm no good at maths!". With my extensive experience of business and finance, I can help bring maths to life - and show why it's important in the world.
If you want focussed help to pass GCSE maths with an excellent grade, then no problem - I have access to masses of materials and tools, and coupled with my access to the latest university research, tempered with real world experience in schools, I can deliver for you. Get in contact today for an introductory chat so that I can understand your needs and make it work for you.
In my experience, the two best areas where secondary school students need help is: basic confidence, understanding 'why' things work, which improves memory and remembering, and getting peoples basic arithmetic and algebra straight. If you want geometry too, then no problem. Bright children can struggle with maths just because they can't conceptually understand some of the basics, but with the right interventions sometimes they can then start to fly.
