I have taught mathematics at various secondary schools for over three years now, and have in my previous and current school been the deputy head of the maths department. I am a graduate of Mathematics from the University of St Andrews, receiving a first class MA there. Every year (4 in total) at university I was on the Deans' List for achieving a GPA of 16.5 or more. My A levels and GCSE results in topics which I would tutor are equally academically sound - an A* in GCSE Maths, and an A in A level Maths, and Further Maths.
I have taught in three schools in East and South East London, meeting students from a variety of backgrounds. I have taught in whole-class settings, as well as smaller intervention settings too. My teaching has covered KS3 and KS4, and I have tutored students including up to KS5.
Having worked with students in formal and less formal environments I have learnt that every individual must be tutored in their own way. Some students require assistance in understanding "why" questions in order to grasp abstract concepts, others need reassurance that the methods they are applying are appropriate. Some students relish in deep conversations about more challenging topics, while others prefer the basics to be covered in more detail. Ultimately, tutoring needs to be adapted to the individual.
