Information about Fiona
My fees are currently reduced to £12.50 per half hour at the moment.
I am a qualified Maths Teacher (PGCE) and have taught in schools in Harrogate, Knaresborough and Tadcaster. I have worked with pupils who have many different needs, and understand each one is an individual with their own style of learning. I strive to find the best way to help the pupil understand and enjoy learning Maths, and gain more confidence, so they can achieve the best possible results.
I have taught mainly KS3 and KS4 (GCSE) for over 10 years, working with pupils with a range of abilities, including Gifted & Talented and also many different SEN pupils.
I believe strongly in the individual approach, and provide lessons accordingly. I have a range of different resources depending on what suits the pupil best. Near exam times I can go through past papers with pupils and help them with exam technique, which can be half the battle! I am also available through the holidays to give the pupils extra confidence to start the new term.
Availability: I am currently tutoring via Skype/FaceTime only, around my two year old toddlers nap times. I can tutor midweek lunchtimes and late afternoon/evenings, or anytime at the weekend.
Willing to travel: Home Only

Feedback For Fiona (13)
Fiona is excellent has a very easy style of conversation and teaching My son was put at ease instantly and is already making progress
Fantastic tutor. Really helpful and knowledgeable. Daughter works really well with Fiona. Skype sessions are great too. Highly recommended.
Fiona is an excellent tutor I would highly recommended her
Excellent tutor who has inspired a very reluctant student! Fiona is very friendly and patient and finds teaching methods which suit the individual. At the top end of the price range but worth it.
Fantastic - Fiona has given my daughter confidence that she can pass her GCSEs next year.
We moved into the area, with our son disliking maths and not wanting to bother with GCSEs at all. He had a number of lessons over the holidays with Fiona and enjoyed them from the start. He has continued with lessons and is gaining confidence all the time, he is now talking about taking maths at A level!! Thank you Fiona for your friendly and supportive approach which has had such a big impact on our son`s confidence and re-engaged his love of learning.
Fiona is currently tutoring my son for his upcoming maths GCSE. She had been excellent with him, helping him with subjects he has long struggled with and has bolstered his confidence massively. I`ve never seen him excited about maths before! After every session he is very positive and enthusiastic. I just wish we had started with Fiona sooner!
Having initially used another tutor with limited success for maths I contacted Fiona in the hope of finding a more experienced tutor who could work with my Year 9 daughter who lacks confidence in maths.
I have been bowled over by Fiona`s enthusiasm, professionalism and ability to connect on my daughter`s level. The result is no more tears and whilst maths is never going to be something that is enjoyed, it now looks realistic a good grade can be achieved. More importantly, confidence has been built.
Fiona may not be the cheapest but I`d be surprised if there was a better option out there and I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her.
Excellent friendly support.Our daughter got an A Fiona was a great help...
