Experienced Masters student teaches personalised maths courses with specialisation in GCSE and A level modules.

Methodology

Lessons are built around the student's personal strengths and weaknesses with a focus on supporting weaker areas to gain those vital extra marks. After a discussion on what the student finds difficult and would like help with, we start from first principles and build confidence and knowledge from examples we work through together. I will be acting as a guide as the student gains experience and confidence solving problems they were previously unable to do.

Exercises include everything from visual proofs done by the pupil to show why formulae are used, real world examples to help with the implementation of mathematical methods and even to more classical book work/past papers. Lessons taking over an hour normally include a short 5 minute break to help with the quality of work and productivity.

Experience

I have been tutoring for the past 3 years working one to one with pupils of all skill levels. Alongside this I have worked in multiple schools and academies to provide extra help in lessons. With a 2 hour session every Saturday we were able to improve one girls grade from an E to a C in just under 12 weeks.

This past year I have been working in Crown Woods Academy in London supporting their maths department with year 10 and 11 students who were below a grade 4. By the end of the winter term the work ethic had vastly improved in my group of 8 with one student going so far as to say "can't I have you every lesson". Their most recent mocks have come back with 5 grade 4s and 3 grade 3s ahead of their exams this year.
