I have a master's degree in International Marketing and I have a 2.1 BA (Hons) in Business Studies. I am a very experienced personal tutor who specialises in 1 to 1 tuition and well versed in the new maths specification for GCSE. I have an excellent record of students achieving grades C to A* throughout the new level grading system.

Tutoring Experience

Prior to joining First tutors, I am a very experienced personal tutor in maths from levels KS2 to GCSE. In many cases, many of my students reach their predicted grade months before their final exams and go on to excel beyond their original targeted grade. My experience ranges from students who are behind in the syllabus and in need of steady support and confidence building, to the more able students looking to achieve the higher grades.

Tutoring Approach

My teaching philosophy is to be patient, to understand the students' need and learning capability. This helps not only maximise the potential of the student, but to also help them understand how the maths works on a fundamental level as I believe this can be encouraging and help build confidence in the subject overall. Over the last few years I have created and annually modify worksheets (for the student to keep) to suit the new and more demanding maths specification in schools. These worksheets are specifically tailored to introduce students to different exam style questions. They have been structured for hourly sessions and also a fantastic resource for revision outside of lessons. Alongside these I have also written concise help guides to many topics which the student will also be able to keep.

Alongside Maths, I also teach Business Studies up to A-level. My approach in lessons is to cover the area of business discussing key concepts and models. The emphasis of lessons is to be effective in writing strong answers especially case studies where I encourage the student to analyse, evaluate and apply effective business terminology to create high mark answers.
