Experienced maths tutor up to GCSE, Bury St Edmunds. Science graduate with first year degree level maths

Methodology

I believe that patience is the most important quality of a maths tutor. Maths can be frustrating when you don't understand something, and I believe patience and encouragement, as well as the ability to look at a problem from a different angle is the key to overcoming this. Confidence in your ability to solve a maths problem is a great asset and I like to work to instil this in my students, especially the ones that have always been led to believe they are simply 'not good at maths'. I think in these cases they have simply not been taught properly, and with the right help can excel.

Experience

I am a part time tutor with many years of experience tutoring maths up to GCSE level. I have a degree in Human Biology (and also work part time in teenage and young adult cancer research) and maths up to first year degree level. I have had students from the bottom set get moved up to the top set and awarded a maths challenge prize after a few months of tutoring.

Lara's CV

I have the confidence to teach maths to those that struggle with the subject, and have seen the children I tutor moved up to a higher set over time. I have patience and understanding that sometimes students need to be shown a new approach to a problem when stuck. I also believe that self-confidence plays an important part in the maths abilities. I have been educated in a scientific field, but also have experience of working in the arts and my experience thus far has made me well rounded and able to adapt to new environments quickly and successfully.
