I design the lessons so that they are enjoyable and not too stressful because I believe that it is important that children at this stage of their education should not be put off learning. FOR MATHS: I explain new concepts to the students using pictures and stories, and sometimes models. I encourage the students to ask questions and play around with the new ideas. I then help students to work through relevant problems, which helps to reinforce their understanding and increase their confidence . FOR ENGLISH: There are a variety of approaches used. I help the child improve their grammar, spelling, comprehension and other skills through workbooks and games. We also spend time reading books and other material that is of a slightly higher difficulty than they normally read.
I am an Imperial College graduate with Maths BSc and Maths MSc. I have 17 years teaching experience, and 5 years experience as an examiner. I have taught Maths and English to younger students for many years, on a one-to-one basis as well as in small groups.

At first I was having trouble with maths and found it to be my hardest subject. However, after I finished my A2 exams, my highest grade was in maths, and it helped me get into university. She was a very kind and helpful teacher, and I found the teaching very useful and detailed!
I was very happy with the way Miriam taught me. She demonstrated extraordinary patience in explaining and re-explaining concepts I found hard to grasp. Her kindness and pleasant demeanour meant I always felt comfortable and relaxed around her no matter how stressed I was about my studies. She effectively guided me throught the theoretical side of each unit, and also covered their practical applications in exam questions. I am very glad I found her when I did.
Miriam has been a very good and patient tutor. She has improved my mathematics knowledge and grades. I think she is very adaptable and can fit her knowledge to any challenge. She understands many ways of giving information. I believe to teach a foreigner Mathematics is very difficult but she never gave up. She would be a very good tutor for anybody.
Miriam was unfailingly positive, patient and encouraging with my often difficult teenager, who was very much helped by her.
Miriam has greatly helped me in A level maths, where I got 88 in C1, 95 in C2, 78 in C3, 96 in C4, 81 in S2 and 100 in S1. In have been taught by Miriam from AS level up until the end of A2. I feel she has allowed me to grasp difficult maths concepts, topics and exam questions. She was always patient, polite and respectful, allowing me to enjoy the lessons. I would highly reccommend Miriam to anyone who is looking for maths tuition, and cannot thank her enough!
Miriam has helped me understand better concepts and ideas I was struggling with in maths. As a result I achieved a B in C1 and S1, which looked out of my reach before getting Miriam's help. She interacted well with me to understand what was holding me back so I could improve. Miriam has been a pleasure to work with and I look forward to further tuition from her in the future.
I havd had Miriam as my maths tutor for over 3 years now and I love working with her. I have recommended her to friends as I believe she is a great mathematician as well as being very inspriring. The methods she uses are great and easy to understand and what's more is, they are exactly what is required by the exam boards.The one on one sessions are great for catch up on the exact areas I do not feel confident on, and you can always choose the pace at which the lessons go.
My son was tutored in A level maths by Miriam for approximately 6 months. During this short period. Miriam made a huge difference to my son's final grade and I would certainly recommend Miriam to any parent or student who needs to improve their maths standard. Without a doubt, Miriam has the ability to teach/tutor to a very high standard.
Miriam helped me immensely to achieve an A grade in the OCR Additional Maths Qualification. I was feeling quite despondent prior to her teaching but she really helped to build up my confidence and knowledge. I really enjoyed Miriam's hands-on approach to tackling problems and understanding concepts. Overally, I found her teaching extremely useful and would definitely recommend her to a friend!
