I am a qualified teacher of Mathematics Cambridge University (PGCE), experienced at working in both comprehensive secondary schools and more recently, a highly selective grammar school. I have proven track record of high performance and a reputation for achieving excellent results for my students.
I graduated from Royal Holloway, University of London, in July 2010, where I earned a First Class degree in Mathematics (BSc). In July 2012 I graduated from Cambridge University and obtained a Masters degree in Advanced Study (MASt) in Mathematics. As my ultimate goal was to become a mathematics teacher, I subsequently commenced my PGCE course at Cambridge University specialising in Secondary Mathematics, graduating in 2014. As a tutor, I am interested in working in secondary level of education as I feel this is the level where my mathematical knowledge and experience would be most useful to students.
I have gained an understanding of child behaviour as a result of being a live-in Nanny for a variety of families from different countries and cultural backgrounds.
Availability: I am both available on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the afternoon and possibly Saturdays in the morning.
Willing to travel: 8 miles
Experience: I love my job! As a mathematics tutor, I am privileged to be able to inspire young people and ensure they have access to the most up-to-date methods of mathematic teaching techniques to help with their understanding of the subject.
As an example, when preparing a group of low attaining Y11 pupils with a range of special educational needs, I managed to utilise my teaching techniques to accommodate their learning needs. I also focused on increasing the students confidence, working closely with teaching assistants to provide extra one-to-one teaching during break times. All of my students achieved grades far beyond their predicted grades.
Overall, I have 13 years of teaching/tutoring experience. As a qualified teacher, I have worked in a comprehensive secondary school in Cambridgeshire where I taught Edexcel syllabus to a wide range of students abilities. For the past 3 years I have worked as a teacher of mathematics in a highly selective grammar school located in Orpington teaching AQA at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 and MEI OCR syllabus for A-level students. I have now moved away from full-time teaching to concentrate on tutoring while providing part-time cover. Since 2012, I have also collaborated with the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust (UKMT) where I have functioned as a marker of Mathematics Olympiads. This collaboration advanced my skills in helping students in their preparation for Mathematics Olympiads and Challenges.

review(s) for Magdalena.
Very structured and methodological in her approach. Able to identify both the strengths and weaknesses after a few lessons. Spends extra time if needed and ensures the topic under review is fully understood. This is then reinforced by specific questions covering those topics. Detailed feedback is provided after each lesson. Cant fault Magdelena. Highly recommended!
