Experienced online tutor with a special focus in boosting confidence in maths

Methodology

Hello!

I’m Daisy, and I study Maths at the University of Nottingham. This year I'm taking a break from my studies and will be focussing my attention on tutoring.

I love maths and the most rewarding thing for me is to see someone who has struggled with the subject find enjoyment in it. I know the notation and logical way of thinking can be very different from other things we learn in school and that can be scary! But I really think that anyone can be good at maths and have fun learning it!!

Above all, I want to teach flexibly to how you would like to learn! Every person has their own individual way of thinking and I think that the challenge of teaching is to be able to relate with different students and present information in a way that is approachable. I'm super enthusiastic about my subject so I'm confident that we can find a way of learning that inspires you.

I always introduce new concepts by building on things you already understand, or by relating to something familiar. I don't want to put you on the spot, but once you are comfortable I put a high importance on asking you to explain your thinking to me so that we can spot misconceptions and learn from mistakes. I like to talk through and explain an example, then give you a chance to try a similar problem and explain back to me.

If you're studying for an exam then generally our first lesson will be a relaxed assessment to highlight problem areas which we can work on in later lessons. Then we can have another go at some exam questions after learning the topic so that you can consistently see your progress.

Experience

I always enjoyed helping others to learn; in school and sixth form I took on various roles supporting younger students, then I took a year out where I worked in a childcare and homework-support centre with children age 5-13.

During my first year of University I worked with Physics outreach to give planetarium shows and introduction astronomy workshops in primary schools. Now over the past year I have delivered over 250 hours of online 1-1 maths tutoring.

I tutor GCSE (currently most familiar with Edexcel, but I will always put in the time to get to know the syllabuses my students are working from), and since the schools closures I have also been working lots with KS2 and KS3 students. My priority here is to provide a structured and engaging lesson during the lockdown and to help support any home learning you might have from school.

It is very important to me as a tutor to be inclusive and make the content I teach accessible for everyone. I consider it a part of the role to keep reading & attend online training events to continually improve my tutoring skills.

If you think I could be a good match for you, please feel free to get in contact as I am offering a free 30 minutes trial lesson where we can get to know each other and discuss what you're hoping to get from tutoring.
