Information about Yvonne
I am a qualified and very experienced secondary school Maths teacher. My whole working life has centered around teaching and training others. After obtaining my degree in Pure Mathematics I worked in the fledgling computer industry training customers in early CAD systems. I stayed at home when my children were very young and then started to work as a private Maths tutor. I trained as a classroom teacher in 2001 and worked in Surrey schools until recently.
I have always loved actually doing mathematics and hope to share with my students the satisfaction of getting the right answer!
Success in mathematics depends on having solid basic skills from which to build. Working one on one with students allows me to find any gaps in their knowledge and uncover any misconceptions. Of course, having worked with hundreds of students in school, I have a very good idea of what those misconceptions might be!
The other key ingredient for success is confidence. I am able to build confidence in my students and develop a positive attitude to keep trying, keep practising and always believing that you can improve.
Availability: Weekdays and weekends.
I offer tutoring at my home for GCSE and A level students only.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I have taught every year group and ability level within the secondary school, from entering the school at age 11 all the way through to A level exams. I used to teach classes of up to 32 students and work with smaller groups for revision and extra help. I have also tutored students of every age group.
I assisted in managing the Maths department in two local school coordinating Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. I have written several schemes of work which are the long term plans for how to deliver the curriculum over the course of the year. I am familiar with the new GCSE and A level courses.
I work as an A level examiner every summer which is very useful when guiding students in how to maximise their marks in the exams.
