Information about Clare
I have 10 years teaching experience, teaching Maths and Business at KS3 and GCSE. I gave up full time teaching to look after my little boy and for the past five years I have been working as a Maths Tutor. I have a lot of experience tutoring pupils for the new Maths 9-1 GCSE exams, as well as tutoring KS3 pupils. I believe that Maths skills are a fundamental skill not only in Maths lessons but in other school subjects and within everyday life. I think that it is important that the fear of Maths is removed and that pupils understand the real life uses of the Maths skills they are learning.
I believe lessons should be both educational and enjoyable. I will tailor my teaching to meet your child`s needs and will use a variety of teaching techniques and activities to engage and facilitate their learning style. I will adjust my teaching to meet your child`s individual goals and adapt my resources to meet their needs.
I am friendly and approachable and will do my best to develop your child`s confidence. When teaching I like to break down Maths concepts into small, simple steps to make the learning as easy as possible. I will provide revision materials and am happy to provide extra work to be completed outside of the tutor session.
When working with GCSE pupils I like to spend time preparing for their exams by developing exam and revision techniques and working through past papers.
Please note: the first session (approx. 30 mins) is free, to establish your child`s needs and to create an action plan.

Feedback For Clare (16)
Clare has been a dream to have help our daughter with her studies. She has helped our 15yr old complete her Math`s GCSE from start to finish within 4 months! My daughter is home educated and does not attend school so we enlisted the help of Clare for maths lessons. I can honestly say she has gone out of her way to help and has been proffessional throughout. We have done a mixture of face to face lessons and more recently since the covid outbreak these lessons have been online. Clare is always on time to start lessons and provides homework and marking, she tailors the lessons to suit our daughters needs and learning style. We cant thank her enough for what she has done.
Clare has been absolutely fantastic with our son who was so insecure about Maths. His confidence has grown and grown.
Clare is very professional but at the same time makes my son feel very relaxed while being tutored. My sons confidence and improvement in maths has come on no end since Clare has been coming once a week his grades have gone up and now looks forward to his maths lessons at school, as well as his tutor session. Thank you Clare !!
Clare tutored my daughter for her GCSE maths this Summer. Clare is very professional, friendly and my daughter gained so much confidence from Clares tutoring. She prepared my daughter well to go in to her exams. I would definitely recommend Clare. Thank you
My daughter was really struggling with math, she had no confidence and really was struggling.Because she is in her final year at school and with GCSEs looming I wanted to give her a boost. After only a few weeks tutoring with Clare there was a huge improvement. My daughter is really enjoying math now and her confidence has grown so much.....so much so that Ive just returned from parents evening and her math teacher could not be more pleased with her work, shes exceeded her grade target with the potential of going higher! Thank you Clare you have really been an amazing tutor.

Clare has been helping my daughter (currently Year 8) with Maths for the last 7 months. In that time her confidence and progression have both improved hugely. Clare makes the sessions fun and interesting and tailors them to my daughters learning style. She is friendly and reliable and I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend her.
Clare has been absolutely fantastic since she started working with my son over the last few months in preparation for his GCSE maths. Extremely reliable, always on time and has a lovely manner that instantly puts my son at ease. His confidence and knowledge have increased hugely since working with Clare and he now approaches his work with a sense of confidence and enjoyment. I would highly recommend Clare to anyone looking for a tutor.
