Conscientious retired teacher of Maths, based in Nottingham, B Ed Degree in Maths and Physics, 27 years experience, 1:1 tutoring. OND and HND Engineering qualifications in addition to experience of te

Methodology

My name is Mark Bertolaso and I currently give lessons to GCSE Maths students in Year 11 and also to Functional Skills students who require a Maths qualification in order to successfully pass apprenticeships.
I can also teach A-Level Statistics to S1 Level.
I endeavour to teach a 3-part lesson comprising a starter, a main subject and then a plenary, depending on the topic being taught.
I prefer 1:1 tuition where the student and I approach questions together and I guide them through it questioning and assessing understanding regularly. Additional or alternative methods are suggested and explored.
I am not judgemental but try to encourage the use of thinking skills and build a students confidence with gradual stages of success. I try to encourage the students to put into writing whatever they think in linguistic and mathematical terms and instil in them the correct mathematical methods and structure when answering a question or formulating a solution to a problem.

Experience

I have been tutoring for one year since retirement, as I felt my knowledge and experience could be invaluable to others, but I have also been employed in the capacity of a tutor at a learning centre, where 3 to 5 students may be present.
I have taught 2 GCSE students recently and 3 apprentices requiring Functional Skills level 2 in order to pass their courses.
I have yet to discover this year the fruits of my labour.

Rates

Rate for a 1-hour lesson. : £25/h

Details

If a student was in Years 7 to 9 requiring tuition, I would only charge £20 per lesson, however, if the student was studying for A-Level Statistics, I would charge £30 per hour.
If I had to travel in excess of 10 miles, I would add an additional £1 per mile.
