I am a trained and an experienced Seondary Maths teacher/tutor. My approach varies depending on the studentís needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-life example wherever possible in order to create a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions including problem solving and unfamiliar problems.
I usually carry out initial assessment before start with any of my students. The assessment are based on year groups KS3 & KS4 including GCSE grades (1-9). This will allow me to pin point any gaps or move students ahead of the school curriculum.
I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use various assessment for learning (AFL) skills to check the progress of my students.
I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practise and perfect the studentís understanding and techniques. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but vital skills such as functional maths questions and the effective use of numbers and graphs.
