Information about Frances
I am a Maths graduate with several years experience of maths tuition.
Usually the lesson is held at the student`s house.
Sometimes the building blocks of maths are not in place and the student has lost confidence in their abilities as a mathematician. In this case I feel it is important to fill in the gaps and gradually build up the students ability, helping them gain confidence.
Other times the student may just need some extra tuition for a particular exam, an entrance exam or GCSE mathematics. In these cases lots of exam paper practise is important.
Availability: I can be available during the day, in the evening or at weekends, depending on what I am already doing.
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: My students have been a mixture of levels up to GSCE. The lessons may be for the purpose of passing an entrance exam, or a SAT or a GCSE.
Sometimes students will have no confidence in their abilities in maths. In these cases I have returned to basics and gradually built up their skills so they can attend to their school work with confidence.
If they are studying for particular exam we go through past papers and revise the parts of the syllabus that they are not so sure about. When they then do the exam they go into it feeling able to be the best they can be.

Brilliant! if you`re struggling, best help I`ve ever had!
Frances is the ideal tutor for a child who has lost confidence in their ability to succeed in Maths. Her calm, patient and understanding approach to tutoring enabled my son to achieve a good pass in his GCSE this year. I have no doubt that Frances provided him with the extra confidence he needed to succeed.
Punctuality and reliability not great. Pleasant woman, but my son needed someone a bit more dynamic.
Frances is a very pleasant tutor. She has a patient approach and is understanding of the pupil`s needs.
Frances is an extremely good tutor, she really helped me while I was studying for my numeracy skills test (QTS) by writing out her own examples for me and helping me with any question I did not understand. She has an easy way of explaining hard problems and she really encourages you to do well.
