This is how a referee rated Verity:
Currently on maternity leave. Taking on new clients in the summer break.
I am a dedicated and enthusiastic maths teacher with 7 years senior school experience. Having studied Economics at Cambridge University, I worked in London for 4 years as a financial analyst in an Investment Bank, before deciding to become a teacher. I subsequently gained a PGCE in Mathematics at Oxford University. I have taught for 2 years at an independent co-educational boarding school in Bristol, where in addition to teaching mathematics I was an assistant house-mistress and a hockey coach. Both of these roles helped to develop my ability to form a good rapport with my students and to better understand their individual needs. I subsequently taught at an independent day school in Surrey for 4 years, and I am currently teaching at a top independent day school in Hampton.
I have 7 years experience of teaching GCSE, IGCSE, AS and A2 level maths (C1, C2, C3, C4, M1, S1, S2 and FP1). I also have experience of tutoring the AP calculus course. My students have consistently exceeded performance expectations in their examinations, with many wishing to continue to study maths to a higher level. I have been doing private tutoring for 2 years, and prior to this offered individual out of hours tuition in the above modules during 2 years of teaching at a boarding school. Whilst I teach the Edexcel exam board syllabus, I am happy to tutor other syllabi.
I tailor my tutoring towards the needs of the individual and the targets that they have set themselves for their performance. I aim to improve a students understanding using a variety of techniques (ICT, worked examples, textbooks, diagrams, ‘back to basics’), and raise their confidence in their ability to tackle more and more complex material. I always try to look for new ideas and resources to develop my classroom teaching, and often adapt these for tutoring. I prepare each session with the individual in mind, and set additional work to consolidate the session’s learning. I look to foster a productive, and enjoyable working environment capable of achieving the highest personal expectations.
