I am looking to teaching mathematics to students in secondary school and GCSE level
(I am also open to AS Level and A Level students, depending on my schedule.)
My take on learning maths is that "practise makes perfect" therefore my lessons include a lot of work sheets and problem solving and learning through mistakes.
I used to work as a maths teaching assistant in Holycross Catholic Girls School, New Malden for a year where i worked with students between year 7 - year 13.
I used to also tutor students who were studying in year 9 and those studying for AS Level. The students studying AS Level achieved As and Bs.

Paba is a very patient and kind tutor going over solutions as many times as I wanted her to. She spoke slowly and checked that I understood what she was saying. She let me set the pace and I never felt like she was going too fast that I could not comprehend what she was teaching. Paba is also very encouraging and supportive. During my tuition with Paba, I felt that she believed in me and wanted me to succeed. Paba acted professionally at all times during the duration of our lessons. Paba was very flexible with timing, so I could pick the times that worked best for me.
