The above represents my credentials and qualifications to be here on Tutor Hunt right now. However, I`m sure you will agree, that these only tell a small part of the story.
To me, the things that best describe me are qualities such as motivational, friendly, flexible, patient, (un)funny, genuine, inspiring. I`m also human, meaning that last paragraph was difficult to write, as I`m not comfortable `bigging myself up`. I`m not perfect, but I have a deep and real passion to bring out the best in young people, and, I do have a track record for achieving this, both in school and privately.
I also must state that I`m a huge music fan, and like most things, but mainly guitar led rock/metal (don`t worry though, I`m very housetrained). I`m also a big dog fan, and have 4 of my own (greyhound, cairn terrier and two cairn/border crosses).
Availability: Potentially any time school is not on, subject to current bookings. Get in touch and let`s see if we can sort something out.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: 10 years primary, working to support and develop maths. music and ICT in the various schools.
3 years supply teaching, working in long and short term posts covering all ages from nursery to year 6.
11 years and counting teaching maths from Year 7 low ability up to GCSE Grade 9 (and beyond, with Core Maths).
Feedback For Jon (3)
Fabulous tutor, very helpful and knowledgable and a great Maths teacher. Really has helped out 14 year old no end. Highly recommended
Great tutor, very patient with excellent teaching style. Maths no longer a chore.
Jon has been working with our daughter for a few weeks and her confidence has already increased massively. Jon can make learning fun and she looks forward to his sessions. He is always on time and his feedback emails after each session are a great way of seeing how our Daughter is progressing.
