All people are more relaxed an open to learn when they are having fun, so I make my lessons as fun and engaging as possible. The lessons also have to be challenging and specifically designed to meet the student's current needs though, so I am always striving to find this perfect balance.
I am a qualified UK Solicitor that re-trained as a Teacher, progressing to Head of Maths in a very successful prep school, where students achieve excellent results at 11+ and 13+, enabling students to move on to all of the top senior schools in London and beyond. I changed career because I really enjoying helping people and I have a passion for Mathematics, problem solving and logic puzzles. I feel that this is the main reason behind the success of the students that I teach.
