Information about Georgia
Hi there! I am a bubbly and enthusiastic individual who is passionate about maths. Over the years, I have taught Key Stage 3, GCSE, IGCSE, A-Level and IB students. I have also had experience teaching from all exam boards. I believe that every student has the ability to do well in maths; they just need someone who is patient, energetic, compassionate and friendly.
Availability: I am available six days a week (excluding Saturdays) in the morning, afternoon and evening.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: During my time at City University London, where I studied a bachelors in mathematics and finance, I tutored GSCE maths at a nearby secondary school. In addition, I spent more than three years working at a well known tuition centre, teaching English and Maths to pupils aged 3 to 16. I am currently working as a private tutor and I absolutely love it! I also have a PGCE in secondary mathematics from King`s College London. This course enabled me to develop my understanding of the pedagogy of teaching maths.
My tutoring style is very interactive. Rather than just spending a whole session talking to the student, I believe in questioning them and getting them to share their ideas with me. I do not believe in rote learning i.e. students taught a method to memorise. To me, it is essential that students have a conceptual understanding of what they are learning. I will also tailor my tutoring for each individual. I will also provide techniques that I used to help me do well in the exams. Organisation is very important so my lessons are planned in advanced.
Over the years, I have tutored students from a variety of schools including Dartford Grammar, Farringtons School, St Olave`s, Hayes School, Ravenswood School, Bromley College, Cobham Hall, The Rochester Grammar School and King`s Rochester. My A-Level students achieved outstanding grades in their A-Level maths and have secured places to King`s College London, University College London and London School of Economics.
For me, learning maths should be a positive and engaging experience, and not seem like a tedious chore. As the American mathematician William Paul Thurston said, "Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations or algorithms, it is about understanding."
