I am a friendly and reliable maths tutor. I cover anything from primary school up to and including GCSEs. This includes both Maths and Further Maths.
I am available to tutor in the way that will make the student feel most comfortable, whether that be at their own home or online.
My general structure for lessons is as follows:
• recap the previous lessons and ensure everything is understood
• go over anything they are still not confident with
• introduce the next topic
• lots of practice exercises
• a short of review of the lesson
I begin by understanding where the student is having problems. I like to personalise my teaching methods, ensuring the specific needs of each student is met. I know multiple ways of approaching various problems meaning there will always be a way they can understand. I like to ensure they understand how to do everything, not just know how to do it. I will make sure lots of practice questions are covered in the lessons, I believe this is one of the best ways to learn and understand the content.
I like to keep good structure and stay organised.
Kimberley is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
I have a First Class Degree in Mathematics. I graduated this year, meaning all of the materials from GCSE and A-Level are still fresh in my mind. I studied both maths and further maths at A-Level, along with physics.
I now want to use my knowledge to help others. During my second year at university I did PALS (Peer Assisted Learning Scheme), this was where I helped first year students with any of the content they didn’t understand. This included both group and individual sessions. With my tutoring, students were able to increase their marks by an average of 10%.
I love seeing my students succeed and gain confidence as they learn. I have done over 50 hours of tutoring, and still have ongoing students currently.
I am also able to help with the UKMT Maths Challenge.

Self- motivated, with education and experience in problem solving and programming.
• Teamwork - as a PALS leader (see below) I motivated other people and supported their ideas. I worked well within teams of different sizes.
• Problem solving - I solved many complex problems throughout my maths degree. These require logic and imagination at each step of the problem to come to the best solution.
• Independence - at Tesco during busy periods I was required to work independently, this also required quick thinking.
• Hard working - PALS sessions required me to be very committed to the task.
• Communication - during my work experience I communicated clearly to ensure understanding.
• Organisation - to be a PALS leader, organisation was key. Having structure leads to clear thinking
and better time management.
• Computational skills - I can program in both R and Maple, and use Microsoft Office (Excel, Word &
PALS Leader - University of Plymouth, Plymouth (September 2018 – May 2019)
PALS is a peer assisted learning scheme where I managed first year university students ensuring they understood all the content for their exams. Throughout this I improved students marks by an average of 10% by producing clear revision plans and providing additional work, while effectively time managing the sessions.
Shop Assistant, Tesco, Midsomer Norton (November 2016 – April 2019)
I was taught a range of roles, to be able to do a variety of different jobs within the store, including checkouts, non-food, and groceries. I cut down large queues at checkouts during busy periods by swiftly and effectively dealing with customers problems. I was responsible for ensuring all the money and coupons from the tills made it to the cash office.

I planned out lessons within half the time through proficient time management. I found solutions to any problems the pupils encountered and ensured they were understood. Being able to work with the other teachers really benefited me and improved my communication skills.
