Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school. A Einstein
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach Maths (KS2, 11+ Entry, KS3, GCSE Foundation and Higher Tiers, IBGCSE, A level in Core 1-4, Free standing Matematics Qualification, Basic Skills, Functional Skills), Statistics (S1 and 2), IB (Year 12 and 13), Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I graduated in Applied Maths (former USSR) in1979 and gained a PGCE in Secondary Maths Ed (Hons) in the UK (University of North London) in 2003.
- How much do you charge?
My fee is £30-35per hour. I teach on a one-to one basis only. My experience proved it to be more successful as it gives me flexibility to reflect students' needs. I don't see consultation lessons as a necessity as I discuss all particularities with parents on the phone/email and usually start straight away.
- Where do you teach?
I teach the majority of my lessons at home or on-line.
- When are you available?
I am available from 8:00 to 21:00 weekdays and from 9:00 to 21:00 during weekends and holiday periods.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
My students are from 9 to 32 years of age.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I'm contactable from 8:00 till midnight and can book individual sessions if necessary. Usually between these hours I also provide full support to my students helping them with their work at home and emailing to parents on their requests.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
All hard work is rewarding. Maths is fun after you've learnt the basics.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have 11 years of experience in a space research project overseas at which time I tutored students at the university level. I taught in a state secondary school from 2003 and worked part time as a private tutor. Eight years ago I became a lecturer in Maths at Southgate College, still working part-time as a private tutor. My former students are studying a variety of degrees in UCL, Oxford, Bath, Bristol, Queen Mary Universities as well as students of selective schools (Latymer, City London, Henrietta Barnet, Winchmore School, Haberdashers' Aske's Estree). decided to retire at the end of this academic year but will contunue private tutoring, including an on-line tutoring.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes, it is valid.
- Do you belong to any professional organisations?
- Tell me about some of your current students.
One thing I am very proud of is that I tutor two or three children from the same family or related families; I also continuously teaching students through 11+ Entry Exams and KS3, or through GCSE to A levels.
