Information about Sara
I have worked full time as a tutor for many years and have a huge wealth of experience. I draw on my knowledge and experience to help my students fulfil their potentials. I offer a very positive approach that helps builds up my students confidence and their enthusiasm for the subject. I have helped students with a wide range of ability. I help build back up the confidence of those who lack self belief and showing them they are able to tackle the subject. I also have the knowledge and enthusiasm that will help push those students who are very able and are aiming at getting those top grades.
I believe I have a logical mind that helps me explains things in a clear, logical and structured manner. I enjoy helping people understand things and finding ways to explain things. I am very personable and I think children of all ages find me approachable. I find tutoring very rewarding and love watching pupils grow in confidence and ability.
Availability: I have excellent availability for sixth form students during the day time which may be suitable if there are days where they go into college late / finish early. I have weekends and some weekday evening slots. More slots available over the holiday periods.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I feel privileged to have had the pleasure of working with over 150 pupils and now have over 3500 hours of tutoring experience. I have tutored AQA A level Biology and Edexcel A Level Maths. With maths this includes core maths, mechanics and statistics within the maths A level course.
I have also done a large amount of tutoring working with students preparing for GCSE and iGCSE examinations in maths and all three sciences. I know the syllabuses thoroughly. I use this and my knowledge and understanding of what is expected, to support my students with their studies. In particular I have had a very large number of students studying for the AQA GCSEexams and Edexcel iGCSE exams, but I am of course also very familiar in the OCR board and Edexcel GCSE exams.
My 13+ common entrance pupils have all got their required grades for their choice of school. Often I have not only boosted their understanding and confidence, but also helped them develop a greater love of the subjects which I hope encourages them to study these further.
I am very familiar with the requirements for 11+ for various schools and some of my students have won scholarships / awards.
I have undergone specialist training in Dyscalculia and am able to use the British Dyslexia Societys advanced, multi-sensory maths development programme for the remediation of dyscalculia to offer extra support to Dyscalculic approach. I am accredited to Level 2 by the British Dyslexic Society and have undergone their Practical Solutions for Dyslexia, Dealing with Dyscalculia and Dyscalculia Plus Course.

Feedback For Sara (8)
Despite the fact that under the current circumstances we have not been able to meet Sara in person, and all the tutoring has been online, she has managed to develop a really good teaching relationship with our daughter. We are extremely satisfied with Sara and would unhesitatingly recommend her services.
Sara has been tutoring my daughter in A level Biology using Skype, for the past month. It is important to have some sort of normality, even though there are no formal exams in June 2020. Anyone wanting to go to university still needs to complete and understand the content of their subjects. Sara quickly adapted to the new situation and is very upbeat and enthusiastic. My daughter`s confidence in Biology is continuing to increase thanks to Sara.
Sara has come to us twice so far, has been punctual and professional and established an immediate friendly relationship with my daughter. She has been encouraging and guiding her through homework and giving clear instruction in areas for support. I am extremely happy with this promising start and look forward to seeing my daughters confidence in Maths improving.
Sara is great. My son really enjoys the sessions and it has not only massively improved his maths skills but stopped him feeling like he cant do it.
Sara has tutored my son who is on the autistic spectrum and finds it difficult to process the language maths questions. Over the period Sara has tutored him he went from a getting a 6 in maths and being luke warm about the subject to getting a 9 in his mock and choosing to do maths at university. Sara managed to imbue a love of the subject in my son which is a miracle in itself and the real progress in his marks is incredible . We have been through many maths tutors in the past and I can categorically say that Sara is by far the best.
I am so pleased I went with Sara, she is so knowledgeable has such a great approach and a lovely friendly personality, very encouraging too! She has helped me no end!
Sara is great at explaining and also gives you a situation to work through which helps put everything into practice!
I was so nervous (and a bit embarrassed) about getting support on my maths (started a new job and was worried my maths wasn`t up to scratch)! Really pleased I have met Sara! She has helped me no end! Very happy! HUGE THANK YOU!
Sara has tutored my daughter who has mild dyslexia, her confidence in maths has grown enormously due to the encouraging and engaging way that Sara teaches. My daughters teachers at school have noticed an improvement and this is due to the tutoring she has had. Sara has a very calm nature, she is reliable and punctual, she makes children feel at ease and is happy to discuss my daughters progress at any time. Sara is very knowledgeable of the current curriculum and provides a very comfortable learning environment.
I was new to Tutor hunt and was looking for a Maths tutor for my son in Year 9. I found the process straight forward and after a little bit of a search we found Sara. My son has never been fond of Maths but now in only 5 weeks he has confidence and an understanding of Maths I never thought I would see. Through Sara, he has excelled quickly and now is actually putting his hand up in class to give a correct answer and wants to be challenged. I am so pleased we have found Sara and wont be letting her go until he has done his GSCEs now!!! I would recommend her to anyone. Kerry
