Attiya - South Woodford - Maths

Methodology

Learning is fun if presented in the right way.
I provide personalised study programmes tailored just for your child's needs. I use latest research in Child Education, Child Psychology and Teaching Methods as my guidelines.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I prepare kids for 10+, 11+, 13+ exams for grammar and independent schools.
I prepare kids for CEM tests. CSSE. GL assessments. SAT'S.
I teach KS3 Maths
Research methods was my favourite subject in my own Masters, so I am continuously looking for new methods and logical ways to teach verbal and non verbal reasoning instead of just filling in test papers after test papers getting stuck at the same score.
I try to vary resources, and use technology where needed. I don't want to make learning time taxing, children learn better when relaxed.
Treating exams and tests as problem solving exercises or puzzles helps them score better.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Masters in Applied Linguistics with Distinction from University of London.
Masters in English Language and Literature B.Z.U
B.Ed Maths
BA English and Economics
Physics and Maths were my favourite subjects as a student and I still like working in these subjects.
I have been an honour student throughout and have secured all academic scholarships and awards available during my school, college times.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Skype

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Learning is fun, I make it an interesting activity rather than a burden.
I carry out assessment of your child's education needs and style of learning.
I look at the gaps in child's education/learning and make an individualised plan to fill those gaps to build a solid base for future learning.
I use National curriculum as a guideline but am not limited by it.
Our ethos is that every child is unique and learns in his/her own way. If a child is not making progress in a subject, then the teacher needs to find a way that is better suited to that child's learning style.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have experience in Mentoring young children.
Career Guidance for secondary school children.
I have been helping children prepare for 10+, 11+ , 13 + for both Grammar and independent school entry tests and interviews.
Experience with City of London school for girls, City of London school for boys, Colet court, Bancrofts, Forest, Chigwell, Latymer , Ilford County, Woodford County, Chelmsford, King Edward school entry tests.
I have helped children improve their skills in Maths and English in order to improve their SAT scores or just do better.
I Help children fulfil their potential.
Being the mother of 3 children under the age of 16 also gives me a better understanding of primary age children and their working behaviour.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

I am a University of London graduate with special interest in Gifted education and accelerated learning.

Mrs Thanvi is the personal tutor to my son. My son enjoys coming to his study sessions with her. She is very caring and accommodating of my son. She is also kind and flexible with her time and teaching approach. Her assistance towards my son does not stop at the lesson. She has advised me on several extra-curricular activities to enable my son achieve the best academically.

My son would always come out of the lessons having worked very hard telling me of all the fun interesting conversations they had had about current affairs and anything they had seen or done.I completely trusted my son in her very capable hands and are very grateful for all her wonderful work and would definitely recommend her.

He felt totally prepared on exam day and came out saying it was not as hard as he thought it would be.

I have known Mrs Thanvi since October 2013 when she started 'tutoring' my daughter (aged 10) ahead of 11+ Exams.

Since then, she has worked closely with not just my daughter, but also with us as parents as part of the exam preparation.

She took time at the outset to understand what our objectives were, what areas of strength or weakness we though there may be, and to understand how we anticipated that learning process would develop.
