This is how 3 referees rated Sarah:
I am a recent graduate from Tring Park School For The Performing Arts, where I studied Maths, Further Maths and Film for A Level (along side Musical Theatre Training). I achieved an A in Maths, a C in Further Maths and a B in Film. I have a passion for maths being accessible to all. I am 18 years of age, and currently based in North Kilworth. I am happy to travel within reason if given reasonable notice.
I believe my age is a key factor in making maths 'cool' and relatable; many young people find it easy to just 'switch off' when they walk into a maths class. I strive to break this trend!
I am currently working in the arts, so my time is nearly always flexible!
My previous teaching experience has focused manly in the Performing Arts working with ages of 8-15. I used to unofficially tutor many of my peers during my A Level and GCSE courses, helping to break down the work and make it more translatable and understandable. I now have four pupils, ranging from year 9 to 11 and am thoroughly enjoying it!
My approach to tutoring is to break down the maths specifically to suit the pupils needs. My preferred method is to be told in advance of any problem areas, then I can look over them the preceeding week and prepare work and make sure my knowledge is solid; Alternatively if there has been a problem area in class we can work through work/questions that we're not initially understood etc. I studied the AQA syllabus (GCSE and A Level), and studied Statistics (1&2), Mechanics (1&2), Decision (1&2) and Further Pure (1&3) in Further Maths.
