You cannot beat experience! I retired (early!) from being a maths teacher with 32 years experience, I am also a professional magician!
I am regularly told that I help increase confidence in students who previously under-achieved or felt they needed more support. Students appear to like me and most actively look forward to their sessions! I was both Head of Year and Head of House in previous schools so have significant pastoral experience.
As a tutor:
I teach all aspects of 11 plus and entrance exams (not just the maths),
I prepare children in Key Stage 2 for their year 6 Maths SATs,
I help boost confidence in maths at Key Stage 2 or Key Stage 3 (ages 9 to 14)
I give full teaching, preparation, gap filling and increasing of understanding of Maths in readiness for GCSE at both Foundation and Higher level,
I teach adult learners numeracy and "functional" maths,
I can provide the full maths curriculum for home-schooled children and teenagers.
I travel to you and tutor in your home or your preferred location.
Availability: This is my full-time living and I am available weekdays during the day (so can support home-schooled children and adult learners) as well as weekdays after school 3.30pm to 7.30pm. I have some limited availability on Saturdays too.
The 11-plus test is taken in September at the beginning of year 6. This year I am offering intensive 11-plus preparation throughout August for those about to go into year 6. This includes fully analysed full-length practice papers.
Willing to travel: 8 miles
Experience: + 32 years experience of teaching maths including 25 years in what was the country`s most over-subscribed comprehensive school!
+ I have conducted entrance exams for many years, have supported all abilities from Gifted and Talented pupils to those with learning difficulties and taught to secondary standard at all levels.
+ The school in which I taught for the longest was an ASD specialist school so I have received training and have experience in dealing with children on the autism spectrum.
+ I was Head of Year and/or Head of House in this school for the majority of the 25 years I taught there so have extensive pastoral experience.
