Information about Rachel
I have twenty four years experience teaching mathematics at a range of levels, including five years teaching predominantly A-level (2007-2012).
As well as teaching classes I have spent many years teaching individuals, either one-to-one or in maths workshop situations. Much of my work has been with adults and young people who struggle with maths.
Since February 2013 I have been self-employed as a freelance maths teacher doing mostly private tuition. I have also run workshops and a taught course for QTS Numeracy Test students.
I offer Maths tuition from Numeracy to A-Level.
I tutor students of all ages, from KS2 to adults.
I am a supportive teacher, working with you in the way that works best for you.
I am a qualified primary teacher (ages 7-12), main subject mathematics.
I have extensive experience teaching students with specific learning differences.
This includes autistic spectrum conditions as well as dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia, with students at all levels of ability.
I offer maths tuition at the student`s home or in a dedicated room in my house. I aim to make every lesson enjoyable as well as productive.
Tuition is tailored to the needs of the student, adapting teaching strategies to suit the individual:
building on strengths
empowering independent learning
With younger students, the first session will include a consultation with both the student and a parent/carer to identify priorities for tuition and preferred ways of working.
Where appropriate, lessons may include the use of mathematical games and activities as well as more formal teaching methods.
Records of work may be made accessible to students and their parents/carers via a shared online folder.
I will always look at the way the student learns best as the more closely tuition is matched to your learning style, the easier it will be for you to learn. This may be a brief conversation or an ongoing process. If you are an experienced learner and already know the best ways for you to learn - just tell me!
Please contact me to discuss your tuition needs.
