Information about Sophie
A friendly, reliable tutor with transferrable enthusiasm for mathematics! 1st Class Maths degree from Leeds University and a strong academic record across the board.
I have experience working towards GCSE, A Level and Key Skills Tests for University with students of varying ability. Experience both of consolidating C grades or studying higher level work to move up a grade boundary.
By offering new ways of looking at mathematics and allowing for creativity I enjoy watching enthusiasm for mathematics grow with my students. A strong foundation in arithmetic is key to developing exam skills and I dedicate time to slowly building confidence before tackling more complex exam problems.
I would describe my teaching style as relaxed and cheery. I set work between sessions and expect students to work hard, but aim to avoid frustration by encouraging students to leave work they don`t understand for us to work through together. I find this improves the amount of work they do independently.
I can come to you, or tutor from my home.
Happy to meet up to informally discuss requirements and to see if there can be a good fit.

Excellent tutor. Very thorough and professional. Lovely friendly person too. Daughter very happy!
Sophie was very professional and polite, she spent time with my daughter explaining everything to her until she understood. Sophie was well prepared and gave excellent guidance and offered help and support at a very crucial time and my daughter passed her exams.
