General Teaching Assistant
Information about Gin
I am DBS cleared professional tutor with BSc (Hons) in Mathematics. I predominantly teach online with great success and my students report higher levels of satisfaction with lessons.
I have had great success tutoring students through the new A level format as well as the new 9-1 GCSE style, helping students achieve the grades they wanted as well as giving them more overall confidence with mathematics.
I tend to support students with the work they are currently going through in school, aiding them with anything they are having a particular issue with and providing deeper insight into the subject to help their understanding.
Going through the set curriculum and passing examination is part of the process but my goal is to ensure that the student truly understands the subject matter and is capable to independently solve new problems as they come across them.
I am always conscious that everyone learns at their own pace and adjust my teaching method to suit individual students. As an example, I try and use real life and relatable examples to explain certain mathematical problems, not only helping the student understand a complex subject but also making it more interesting for them.
Mathematics can truly be fun, but can also seem incomprehensible until someone helps you understand it. I try to bring a little bit of fun to my lessons to give students a more positive approach to this useful subject.
Please don`t hesitate to contact me for any details.
Availability: I am flexible with my availability. Please contact me to see about specific times. I am sure we can find a suitable time for both of us.
I am happy to work with you if your timetable is ever changing or if you`d prefer to have the same set time every week.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: Hold a BSc (Hons) Mathematics from Plymouth University.
I have been doing private tutoring for around 4 years now, my students ranging from KS3 to A Level, including home schooled pupils. Not only have my students achieved their desired grades but they feel more confident with their understanding of the subject and more capable of independently solving various problems when taking their exams.
I also have 2 years university level tutoring experience where I worked with students from the mathematics and engineering disciplines.
Feedback For Gin (10)
Gin made my daughter feel comfortable with the format of the lesson and efficiently went through the online resources they are going to use, which are very user friendly. Gin asked lots of questions to guage where she is in her learning and was approachable and friendly . She used the time very effectively and my daughter is keen to continue as she knows she can ask for help with exactly what she needs. She was please with her learning from the first lesson.
Gin has been fantastic at explaining algebra in a way that I can easily understand. She is super patient and has definitely helped with the anxiety I have been feeling with the subject. I look forward to my ongoing study sessions with her, up to sitting my exams.
Lovely teacher. Remote lessons working really well. Considering my 14year old son moaned about having tutoring he logs into the lessons willingly and seems to enjoy them.
So far so good. My son is much more upbeat about his Maths A level now and has been recognised at college for his improvements since having Gin tutor him.
Gin has now tutored our daughter for a few lessons and she has been brilliant so far. Really patient with her and my daughter already feels like she is improving with her GCSE Maths.
Gin has been tutoring maths to my daughter and after not knowing what to expect we are both very happy. Gin is punctual, friendly, patient,and has a very good way of making my daughter understand the maths topics she is struggling with. Would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs help getting through GCSE`s.
We have had Gin come to help my daughter with Maths & even though its only been about a month, her level at the start of term to the results from her end of term test have increased. So very pleased. We find Gin very reliable & pleasant.
Gin was so nice. She made my daughter feel very at ease. She was good at explaining and she tried to give my daughter confidence before an important test. I would definitely recommend Gin. Thank you
Gin has been teaching my year 8 daughter for a couple of months and we are really pleased with her progress. At parents evening this week my daughter`s maths teacher said that she has noticed that she has gained confidence, is volunteering answers and her understanding has improved. I am happy to recommend Gin.
