Information about Geraint Rhys
Hello there! My name is Geraint and I am a Mathematics tutor, focusing on tutoring both KS3 and GCSE Mathematics. I tutor from my home within a custom made Mathematics area and I have a first class degree in Mathematics, a PGCE and a enhanced DBS certificate.
I am an enthusiastic and dedicated Mathematics graduate and newly qualified teacher with a strong work ethic, who strives for perfection in every endeavour. I am also a previous head boy at Comprehensive School, with exemplary communication skills and an approachable attitude that encompasses all ages and personalities.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have or if you require any further information! Thank you very much for taking the time to visit my profile, please feel free to browse all of the information and I hope to hear from you soon!
Availability: I aim to provide a friendly, committed service that benefits students Mathematics education and will do everything I can to help you. I am an approachable tutor who communicates complex concepts and ideas with clarity, meeting the needs of the target audience effectively, while also a competent and nuanced listener. My goal is to provide students with confidence and the view point that they can and will achieve.
All it takes to get started is one introductory meeting (free of charge!) in order to allow you to visit the tutoring area, provide you with all the relevant information, arrange a schedule of / individual tutoring lessons, sign a contract and mainly discuss exactly what you would like from tuition. Students who are under 18 will be required to attend to the introductory meeting with a parent / guardian.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I undertook work experience within schools during Year 10 of school, final year of undergraduate course, postgraduate course and as a volunteer in personal time. As a trainee teacher, learning support and general support, my motivation springs from both the desire to further pupils` achievement and to advance my own proficiency. I acquired initial teacher training experience via the PGCE course, in which I developed an insight into the demands of the curriculum and assessment, and the pedagogical skills they require.
As for subject knowledge, I have always had a great interest in Mathematics and particularly enjoy the problem solving aspects, this lead me to undertake a degree in the subject which culminated in receiving a first class honours.

Geraint has been an exceptional tutor in every aspect. From our initial correspondence to our final lesson Geraint has provided an in-depth, insightful programme of sessions that were uniquely adapted to our daughters individual needs. His preparation is meticulous along with his ability to quickly adjust learning styles to achieve the very best possible outcome. Since starting with Geraint our daughter has gained in confidence and ability to tackle even the most challenging maths tasks. After each session she has had many light-bulb moments that she has been able to consolidate and re-use in her recent maths GCSE.
Our daughter has taken higher level, AQA, GCSE Maths and finished her last exam this week. With Geraints help she has confidently addressed each paper departing her knowledge in a methodical, prepared way ensuring maximum marks wherever possible.
Geraint has been a shining light in the somewhat dark art of GCSE Maths and we are forever grateful to him for making this experience a positive one for our daughter.
For his professionalism and courtesy, his abundant mindfulness and consideration and his complete mastery of his subject, thank you from us all. Whatever the results outcome August, we know it will be significantly better having had you to guide us.
With our warmest regards .
