About the lesson

Tutoring Approach
Science and Maths is everywhere, I like to prove this to students by giving them questions in a real life context. I also teach students to be resilient and work through questions logically, developing their problem solving skills. This is a new skill being brought into I am a fully qualified teacher and a friendly, compassionate tutor with a passion for science and mathematics. I enjoy helping students increase their confidence in the subject, using a variety of teaching strategies.

I have a unique background, having worked in a number of secondary schools around the West Midlands, delivering KS3 lessons up to GCSE in both mathematics and science. I have also worked closely with local primary schools, to deliver booster sessions to years 5 and 6 in mathematics and increase overall engagement in the subject. In addition, I have taught SEN (Special Educational Needs) classes.

Currently I teach mathematics in a leading independent school, with a unique age range covering year 4 all the way up to GCSE. I have had the opportunity to teach classes of each year, therefore I am multi skilled in both primary and secondary, despite my original specialism being in secondary education. I thoroughly enjoy the variety that this brings and feel it is highly advantageous to my tuition, as I have a very large skill set that I can tailor to any student age range and ability.

I have tutored for over 7 years (in mathematics and science) and being a current teacher with GCSE classes, I I have a wealth of school experience with proven results. I can explain topics in many different ways, therefore can adapt my teaching to the students’ preferred learning style. In addition, I use variety of questioning styles to ensure that the student fully understands. i’m equipped with a variety of engaging, teaching strategies, to bring mathematics to real life. I focus on depth of understanding and developing students problem solving skills, this not only makes the maths fun but means students can apply their knowledge to any exam question!

Finally, I like to familiarise students with the types of question they will experience in the exam. Therefore, my lessons usually build up to an exam-style question at the end. This builds confidence and is just one of my unique, proven ways to achieving success and conveying my enthusiasm for these subject areas.

**Qualifications** Degree: Medical Science (Hons)
Obtaining a science degree has allowed me to see the direct application of mathematics to other fields. Seeing the wide applications of the subject first hand, is why I am so passionate about the subject. am fully up to date with all curricular changes and all major exam boards. the revised national curriculum. Therefore will set students up for success in their exams.

I also focus on developing exam technique, helping students to gain all the marks they deserve.

I enjoy working with numbers and have a sound understanding of the subject, achieving grade A* in my A-levels. Mathematics also contributes in many ways to the study of life sciences, which is why it made up an important component of my Medical Science degree. Many concepts and formulas in mathematics are used to obtain quantitative data. For example, probability has a major role in the study of genetics. I carried out statistics modules as this has a major application in data analysis, to identify trends and look at data quality. In addition, mathematics has a major role in day-to-day laboratory work. Experiencing first-hand the wide application of mathematics, is why I am so enthusiastic about the subject of mathematics and life sciences.

During my lessons, I always show students the ‘big idea’ and how what they are learning can be applied in ‘real life’. This helps develop a deeper understanding of the subject and also makes my lessons more engaging and relevant.
