My approach centres around engagement; through tuning into a pupils interests and weaving real world application of topics into lessons to give a full understanding. I will tailor lessons specifically to a pupil, to suit their needs and maintain engagement.
I believe that foundational knowledge is pivotal for maths. Through a first free lesson, I will assess where a pupil is working at and identify any gaps in their understanding . For students aiming for top grades, I will help them tackle the hardest questions in a paper, but also nurture their interest in maths, challenging them with trickier concepts that will be useful if they continue to study maths after GCSE.
One of the benefits of 1-on-1 tutoring is verbalisation. I take full advantage of this through questioning students and encouraging questions from them, ensuring that they have a complete understanding before moving on. Moreover, I will maintain a dialogue with parents to monitor progress.
I find that learning maths through visualisation can often be the secret to overcoming hurdles in learning. This will be incorporated into lessons with resources that I am equipped with.
Hi, I'm Alfie. I am a keen mathematician, who is about to start a degree at Edinburgh University. I have an A* in A-Level Maths and a 9 in G.C.S.E Maths and would like to use my skills to help other students in need.
I use my age as an advantage. Having recently gone through the ‘9-1’ system, I know the ins-and-outs of the curriculum. I will be able to identify easily with pupils that are close to my age, through being relatable and approachable.
I have experience in tutoring, partly during my GCSEs, where I was involved in a tutoring scheme every day before school. More recently, I have worked with other GCSE students and have helped them achieved their goals. I am equipped with the e-learning resources to make online lessons as effective as those face-to-face.
I take great joy from teaching as it enables me to help someone overcome difficulties that they may have initially found impossible. I suit tutoring as I am knowledgable and prepare rigorously. I am dedicated to my work and put the time in for each every pupil. My enthusiasm fosters learning and achievement.
Alfie tutored my 15 year old son who had become disengaged with his learning. He was fantastic; knowledgeable, flexible, prepared, clear and very professional. I would definitely recommend him.
