I am a qualified, experienced, full-time maths tutor. I’ve been teaching students in and around Stevenage for 4 years. I am punctual, professional, reliable and flexible too. Lessons can be 60, 90 or 120 minutes, ad-hoc or weekly. I offer 1-to-1 tuition locally, in your home or mine, as well as online tuition and the first lesson is free.
I specialise in teaching maths at key stage 3 or GCSE, foundation or higher levels, years 7 to 11. I help students rebuild confidence, plug knowledge gaps, improve their grades, move to a higher set and prepare for tests and exams.
Friendly, kind and patient, I consider the needs of the student and coach them to enjoy the subject and achieve their potential. I encouraging independent learning and a sense of accomplishment with maths by increasing their understanding of the subject. I help them to succeed and achieve their goals and target grades.
I studied maths to degree level at Brunel University where I graduated with a BSc in engineering. Of the final year exams, I scored higher than 90% in my maths paper. After University I worked in engineering for many decades as a training instructor for different companies, including Cable & Wireless, so developing my teaching skills.
I have worked as a private maths tutor for 4 years, helping students at key stage 3 and GCSE in and around Stevenage. I am familiar with the National Curriculum. I have good communications skills and I can explain complex or difficult topics in a clear and easy to understand way. I am a good listener, organised and thorough.
I am DBS checked and the certificate is available for inspection. I can teach in your home or mine. If I travel to your home I charge an additional £5 to cover my costs.
My teaching style is demonstration through worked examples and explaining difficult concepts in an easy to understand way. I make sure they understand and can apply the curriculum topics by answering lots of different maths questions. I set homework to ensure the student has understood the lesson and mark it the following week. I prepare students for exams by working through past papers and test questions.
