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.
