Information about Niamh
Hi, my name is Niamh and I am a fully qualified Maths teacher. I am currently teaching full time in a local secondary school. I graduated 7 years ago after studying Maths and Education in Galway, Ireland. I am a young teacher who is very passionate and enthusiastic about my subject.
I am a patient, friendly and approachable person. My students are always happy to ask me for help during class and after school. I can cater for different learners of any ability. I am confident I can help students improve their subject knowledge as well as their confidence in maths. I am very willing to repeat myself and go over a topic as often as the pupil needs, as I appreciate that maths doesn`t come easy to everyone. My philosophy is to make sure my students fully understand the basic concepts of the subject first. I believe this is vital to their success in maths. I use past GCSE exam papers and questions to consolidate learning and show students what is expected of them in a test/exam.
Availability: I am available weekdays (in the evenings)
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: This is my seventh year teaching every year group from year 7 up to year 11. I have taught every ability in maths - from top set classes who are working towards grades 7/8/9 to lower ability classes who are working towards a grade 4 in order to pass the subject. I have had great success with pupils and every student I have tutored has made progress.Contact this Tutor
