Now fully booked up for the current academic year BUT TAKING STUDENTS FOR SEPTEMBER 2020
I am a fully qualified, friendly and enthusiastic Mathematics tutor with 25 years of teaching experience. I specialise in teaching A-Level Mathematics, covering Pure Maths, Mechanics and Statistics. I am passionate about Mathematics and have a wide range of experience, having taught students from the ages of 11 to 75!
Availability: Monday-Friday, 09:00-20:00.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I obtained my degree in 1992 and then completed a PGCE in 1993, specialising in Mathematics. Since then, I have gained a wide range of experience teaching in Secondary Schools, Colleges of Further Education and Private Tutoring. I have taught GCSE and `A` level Mathematics, Mathematics for BTEC Electrical Engineering and Mathematics for BSc Mechanical Engineering. I worked for many years as an Open College Lecturer working with adults returning to Mathematics after a significant break.Contact this Tutor
My approach to teaching is to focus on the individual learning needs of the student. I aim to find an approach which works for them, building up confidence in a tailored way. Some students may just need guidance and support within specific areas while others may need a more structured programme addressing a wider range of skills. I like to work in partnership with students - establishing their skill set and then defining learning goals so we can work towards the desired outcomes. I am very approachable and have always aimed to build up the confidence of students - this is particularly important as Mathematics is often a subject in which students may have had a bad experience previously. I believe this approach has been of great value to the many successful students I have taught.
I don`t do tutoring as an additional source of income - this is my full-time job. What you will get from me is a committed, experienced teacher who is focused on helping each student achieve the best results they are capable of, while hopefully adding a little fun into the learning process!
