Information about Alida

My name is Alida, I am currently working as a maths teacher and assistant Head of maths in a school in south east London.

I am a trustworthy, reliable and honest person.
I care about children and I was a nurse assistant before I became a maths teacher.
I have expectations and set clear boundaries because I believe they are really important for success.
I also set homework and mark them frequently when tutoring.

Availability: I am available everyday.

Willing to travel: 5 miles


I have great experience teaching and tutoring Maths and French in the UK and abroad.
I am able to teach mathematics up to GCSE level.
I have been teaching maths to GCSE standard for five years now. I know exactly what is included in the new GCSE specifications. My role as an assistant Head of maths department has definitely given me the opportunity to write schemes of learning for year 11. As a result, I know how to break down topics in order to help your child to meet or exceed their targets.

Some success stories

Student A
This is a young girl that had grade 2 before I started tutoring her. I helped her building her confidence, showed her exam tips, how to revise and more importantly how marks are allocated for every questions. She was really happy when she opened her GCSE letter and realised that she got 4.

Student B
This lovely year 11 boy was a grade 5 student in maths, after working really hard with him, doing exam papers every week, giving him challenged questions he did extremely well and achieved a grade 7 maths. His grade then allowed him to confirm his place in a Grammar school in Kent.
I am also trained to teach/tutor mathematics using mathematics mastery. This is a program designed to help students conceptualise and understand the reason why we are studying mathematics. This program follows a CPA approach (Concrete Pictorial Abstract). For every topic that I teach/tutor, I always bring maths alive by taking real life examples. These help students understand the concept. For instance: Calculating with negative numbers is a topic that most student find difficult in maths. even those that get it might not be able to explain the reason why -4 + 8 = 4.
when teaching this topic, I like using oyster cards, bank account or the weather as an example. `if I have -4 pound in my oyster card what does it mean? ` Now I top up 8 pounds what will my new balance be? This was just an example of how to link mathematics to real life situations.

I can teach/tutor students with different abilities this include higher, middle and lower set.
It is never too late to start, if you are looking for someone that can help your child achieve or exceed their target grade do not hesitate to get in contact with me.

Thank you

Mrs Alida is a good, dedicated maths tutor she comes prepared to teach and sets follow up work to consolidate our daughter`s understanding. Mrs Alida is perceptive as to our daughters needs in mathematics and she explains concepts very clearly. We pleased with the work Mrs Alida is doing with our daughter.

My daughter struggled in the past with Maths and was a bit behind in lessons at school. My daughter`s comments after her first session with Alida `mum, this is the first time I am excited about maths lessons and look forward to the next session`. Alida, in my opinion has gone beyond the call of duty and provides homework, and access to her watsapp if my daughter has any questions during the week. This is Rachel`s 3rd week with Alida and is looking forward to her 2 sessions this week. Alida also stays past the hour until my daughters figures out the task at hand. Thank you Alida.
