I am an experienced teacher and home tutor who has taught maths to children at Primary and Secondary (to GCSE) level. I have also taught maths to adult learners.
I specialise in working with children and young people who lack confidence in maths either because of previous experience at school or because of SEN.
I have a proven record of increasing SATs and GCSE exam grades and of enabling children to pass the maths part of the 11+ exam.

Experience: * I have over 15 years experience of teaching and home tutoring maths - I have taught maths in primary school, secondary school and 6th Form College.
* I aim to build up confidence and self esteem to make children and young people believe that they can succeed and achieve in maths.
* I am trained in techniques such as TEACCH which helps young people with ASD and ADHD to concentrate and learn.
* I am very patient and listen to, and watch, the young people that I teach to see where they experience difficulties so I can find alternative explanations to increase their understanding. I understand that people have different learning styles and tailor my lessons accordingly using a range of resources.
* I believe that when I am teaching I am in partnership with parents/carers who are welcome to sit in lessons if they wish to do so. I provide verbal and written feedback after each lesson.
*I give learners timed tests and exam questions to give them practice answering within a limited time and under pressure so they become used to this ready for their exams.
*I set and mark homework if it is required by parents.
*I have an Enhanced Disclosure & Barring Services Certificate.
