Information about Luke
Friendly and young but experienced tutor
All ages and abilities welcome well discuss both short-term and long-term goals during our opening session
Sessions can take place either at my house in Longlevens, Gloucester or I can travel throughout Gloucestershire - in light of the recent events I have also started to do online sessions using Skype
I am a fully qualified maths teacher but have decided to focus on one-to-one tuition as I enjoy engaging with students on a more personal level, where Im better able to tailor my approach to each individual learner. The rest of my time is devoted to my young family and playing live music around the country and beyond.
I don`t ask my students for testimonials but here are a few examples of happy clients:
`Hi Luke, would just like to thank you for all your help with J*** for his GCSE maths. He has said that your tuition has really helped and given him confidence.`
`Hi Luke, just thought I`d let you know J***`s maths teacher told him he was only 2 marks away from an 8, so they are having it remarked! Amazing he has done so well, just goes to show what one- one help can do`
`Just wanted to say a big thank you for the work you have put in with T** so far. His self confidence within maths seems to haveimproved and he tells me he`s understanding is getting better. Thanks a lot, whatever you are doing it`s working!`
Availability: My availability has rocketed in light of recent events so please don`t hesitate to get in touch
Willing to travel: 20 miles
Experience: I have now been tutoring full-time for 2 years. Additionally, on top of completing the PCET PGCE (dedicated to teaching maths at college), I have over 6 years experience working as a teaching assistant at secondary school and 6th Form much of this was spent guiding a variety of different learners (including many SEN students) through their GCSE maths.
In terms of qualifications, I have B at GCSE, A at A-level and a 1st class degree with honours with much of the content devoted to pure maths. The B at GCSE was as a result of not feeling engaged at school I developed an interest in maths as a mature learner as a result, I understand how many students feel in a classroom and I work hard to create a more comfortable and personable environment.
Feedback For Luke (1)
Luke was brilliant with our daughter. She is autistic and therefore needed a lot of patience which Luke had. She was laughing and chatting with him and really looked forward to the sessions with him. She passed her GCSE this summer. Fantastic. Thank you so much Luke.
Luke has been tutoring my daughter for A level Maths. She has found this to be extremely helpful and has given her a clearer understanding of, and confidence in areas where she was previously struggling. Luke has always been punctual and pleasant and I would recommend him as a tutor.
Luke is an excellent maths tutor with encyclopaedic knowledge of maths. He has a pleasant and engaging manner, and with both patience and kindness he has taught my son Alevel maths.
