Information about Sarah
I have a PGCE from Loughborough University after having worked previously as a Chemical Engineer and a Business Analyst. I have been tutoring for 4 years now and it has been very rewarding.
I am passionate about Maths and try to find real life examples to make the lesson more fun and exciting.
I have been teaching KS3, KS4 (Higher and Foundation) to A-level (exam boards AQA, Edexcel and OCR MEI).
I take great pride in my tutees` work - last year`s results blew me away - my A Level tutees exceeded expectations- One of them expected a B and got an A on first attempt. My other one came to me after 2 attempts to secure an A and kept getting a B, and we got an A*!
Two years ago, I also took on some interesting cases. One of my Year 9 tutees struggled with dyscalculia and I did my research on the subject and we worked together to get her more confident at school. She even secured an A in her second term exams. I also taught Foundation GCSE and so proud my tutee passed this year after I helped her since her 2 failed attempts.
Overall, I am extremely patient and never give up on my pupils, no matter how hard they find Maths.
Availability: Weekday afternoons and Saturdays for now. During exam preparation period, I also tutor on Sundays if required.
Willing to travel: 3 miles
Experience: I worked at 2 schools in Loughborough, teaching all levels from Year 7 to Year 13.
I have successfully been tutoring Years 9 to Year 13, including one pupil who has been struggling with dyscalculia.
I prefer to tutor from home - I live very near Loughborough College but I will also travel a few miles to the student`s location.
Feedback For Sarah (2)
Sarah is very patient and is very diligent about setting homework. The only reason I haven`t given her five stars (yet) is because I want to wait and see the results of her work!
Sarah has been absolutely brilliant in tutoring our granddaughter in maths. She went above and beyond our expectations and our granddaughter felt really comfortable and supported going to her sessions - she learnt so much from Sarah in a very short period. We cannot recommend Sarah enough - she deserves more than five stars!!!
