« Perfect! Jack is really good at building confidence in Maths skills. My son, Charlie, who is studying in his first year for A level Maths has really benefited from Jack's help. Jack is very considerate and leads the tutorial at Charlie's pace whilst ensuring Charlie is able to problem solve and actually understand the topic. With Jack's help, Charlie is now beginning to catch up with his class and his marks are improving. Jack is very professional and arrives promptly and has always returned any phone calls promptly. I would recommend Jack to any student struggling with Maths A level. »

Fully-qualified maths teacher, Nottingham. Experienced teaching from primary to degree level. Prepared for all levels and learning speeds.

Methodology

When approaching a new subject, I like to first assess (conversationally) the student's understanding of the topic in order to pick an appropriate starting point. I will stay with a topic for as long as the student takes to show understanding and I am very patient in this approach.
I believe that no student is aided by being rushed since it is far better to take the time to consolidate progress (and assure those vital marks) than to worry about how long it has taken to get there.
I approach every subject conversationally and will talk through solutions and methods at the pace the student is most comfortable.

Experience

I'm a former secondary school and college maths teacher/lecturer with experience teaching students one-to-one and classes of up to 40.
In my time teaching in Sixth Form college, I mostly taught resitting students aiming to achieve a 4 at GCSE (formerly C-grade).
I was also tasked with helping international students achieving the best British qualifications available to them, often helping with translation and interpretation of our wordier maths exams.

Work History:

Weston College ● Mathematics Lecturer ● August 2016 – August 2017
I taught functional skills and GCSE Mathematics to predominantly 16 – 19-year olds alongside their vocational qualifications as an integral part of their programme of study. From a given scheme of learning, I developed lessons and resources to motivate and encourage learners from a variety of backgrounds to engage with mathematics. As part of a department of sixteen, I was actively involved in the development of the team, both attending and leading meetings for continued professional development.
From this, I gained considerable experience of teaching students with barriers and challenges to learning, as most of the learners that I taught did not have positive experiences of mathematics, having failed the exam at least once before. I developed resources relevant to the vocational courses of each of my classes and compartmentalised lessons to suit the format of 3-hour weekly lessons.

Teaching Personnel ● Teaching Assistant (Agency work) ● January 2015 – July 2015

I worked at a variety of schools in the Bristol area in different capacities, including one-to-one support for learners with specific learning needs, scribing for a student in GCSE exams, examination invigilation and classroom support.
This helped me to adapt quickly to new roles within unfamiliar environments. This role helped me realise how much I enjoyed working with young people and encouraged me to train to become a teacher.

Perfect! Jack is really good at building confidence in Maths skills. My son, Charlie, who is studying in his first year for A level Maths has really benefited from Jack's help. Jack is very considerate and leads the tutorial at Charlie's pace whilst ensuring Charlie is able to problem solve and actually understand the topic. With Jack's help, Charlie is now beginning to catch up with his class and his marks are improving. Jack is very professional and arrives promptly and has always returned any phone calls promptly. I would recommend Jack to any student struggling with Maths A level.

Jack's response

Charlie's mathematical skills are strong, picking up advanced concepts quickly, particularly in geometry. He would benefit most from work on his algebraic manipulation and familiarising himself with exam-style questions.

During my bioinformatics degree, Jack really helped me understand how to multiply matrices, how to convert to binary form and a variety of statistical tests, relevant to my course. As someone who studied up until university in the medium of Welsh, Jack was invaluable in aiding my understanding of English terminology. Really friendly, patient and positive guy. Would totally recommend!
