I am currently a Year 13 student taking up Further Mathematics. I have finished all my A-Levels last year but due to circumstances beyond my control, I have to take up extra A-Levels for Year 13.
I am a proficient mathematician with an enthusiasm for helping and teaching others. I used to do some Maths support when I was in high school back in the Philippines. Now, I am taking some time to help out in lower-year classes. I am a competent tutor, able to effectively teach 1-on-1 or small groups. I am very patient and very encouraging towards my tutees. I am also friendly and an effective communicator which is an important skill to have in order to establish connections and bring across ideas efficiently in order to maximise learning.
I have quite the attention to detail to ensure all important points are covered. I am flexible as well when it comes to time. Most importantly, I am open, supportive, available to any of my tutees for any kind of help or advice.
Availability: I am fairly flexible with time. I prefer doing weekdays afternoon or the weekend.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: Back in the Philippines, I have provided support in Maths for younger students as part of an outreach scheme in my school. This include in-campus, one-to-one or group support, and off-campus, volunteering programs supporting indigenous and street children with the Mathematics subject. Moving here in the UK, I was able to grab opportunities volunteering in lower year classes in A-level, GCSE and secondary school, providing assistance with their Maths subject.Contact this Tutor
I always highlight the importance of understanding the basic concepts of topics in Maths. I don`t believe in learning something that you don`t understand why you`re doing it and how it`s got into a specific point. With this principle, a student will be given insight to what he/she is actually being taught and he/she will be able to appreciate more the idea of the topic rather than just being discussed a series of steps and memorizing it until the final exam. I always start off tutoring with letting the student do a question alone and see how he/she got it wrong, go through the question again then answer a similar question. As we go through a topic, I challenge the student with harder exam questions and, if we can, expand the borders with higher level questions in order to get a deeper understanding of the topic and develop the skills necessary in preparation for the exam.
