Dynamic maths graduate with over 12 years experience of private tutoring gaining great results at all ages.

Methodology

I approach each topic of the syllabus clearly setting out the theory and then bring in questions of different types related to the topic, increasing in difficulty. At GCSE I also focus a lot on past paper questions relating to each topic which increases confidence and gets the students used to interpreting what the examiner actually wants. I find this approach works incredibly well and have been told on numerous occasions I have a flair of clearly explaining topics like no one else and the way I teach helps the student to retain this knowledge as I teach “why” something works, not “just do it like this”!

Background

I am a mathematics graduate who has had a career in finance, but most recently set up my own business tutoring maths to all ages up to GCSE with great success which is so rewarding. I have also recently been teaching in a local secondary school two mornings per week as an intervention tutor to help their Year 11s achieve much higher grades which has been very successful.

Claire is a wonder, kind hearted person and quite possibly the most cleaver and enthusiastic soul I have ever met!
When my sons are old enough she will be tutoring them! :)

P
Paul

Really lovely lady, highly recommended if your child is behind or having problems. Even after a few sessions we noticed the difference

Micaela

I have known Claire for many years and she is reliable and trustworthy, she is a wonderful mum and an incredible tutor especially in Maths, the kids love her style of teaching and really benefit from her simple way of teaching complex formulas and maths solving problems. I wouldn’t go anywhere else if my child needed extra tutoring.

C
Cindy

Determined and positive with the knowledge she shares.
Thoughtful and kind, encouraging and thoughtful of
those who need that extra positive and gentle push.
While giving great enthusiasm for even the smallest step forward for those needing to believe in themselves
which encourages positive steps forward.

Brenda

M
Max

I was a student of Claire’s in the lead up to my GCSE examinations, and she was really helpful in building my confidence in maths, and helping me with any problems or difficulties that I struggled with. Claire is extremely friendly and nurturing and I would highly recommend her tutoring.

J
Jane

Claire is a fabulous tutor and spent time with both of my children during a very stressful build up to GCSEs. They both gained confidence and their ability and knowledge of maths seemed to increase overnight. I can honestly say they looked forward to every session and came home animated and enthusiastic after every lesson.

Claire’s lessons are always thoroughly prepped and she puts the children at ease immediately and tutors in a way that is tailored to their individual abilities.

Highly recommended - I just wish we had discovered you sooner! ️ ️️️️

L
Louise

Claire is not only a very professional Maths teacher but lovely with her approach too. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed her Maths tuition in preparation for her GCSES. She was very confident walking into her exams. I would certainly recommend Claire, and already have, to others.

J
Joanna

My daughter had always struggled with understanding maths until Claire started to tutor her. She has an incredibly calm and approachable way with children of all ages and has always been spot on with her explanations with my daughter. My daughter went from loathing and fearing maths to understanding the subject and really looking forward to her lessons with Claire. She is extremely professional and was always on time. She was so dedicated and I have to give her full credit for her tutoring skills which lead to my daughter’s success in feeling confident with the subject. Claire somehow managed to make maths enjoyable! I can’t recommend her highly enough. Thank you, Claire.
