Kumar - Withdean - School English

Methodology

I enjoy Maths and love teaching.I am married with 2 kids who are learning Maths early. I was the Mathematics head teacher in a private school for 9 years and have been tutoring for 15 years. I am a fully qualified Maths teacher and Kumon instructor.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Maths,English,Science and Geography, and AS and A level Maths.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a degree in Education, Major in TESOL, and a diploma in Electronics Engineering.I am now a newly qualified Kumon Maths and English instructor.
My strength is my ability to give clear explanations even in the hardest areas (including exam technique), to spot logical patterns to make learning easier and to give memorable examples to help understanding.
My Maths explanations are also very clear and I use very understandable words and methods.
Another strong point of mine is that I can identify where the student began to struggle and to then put it right from that point forward.

- How much do you charge?

My basic rate is £55/month using the Kumon method or £20/hr for individual one to one lessons. If I have to go to the student, a small transport fee may be added depending on where you live.

- Where do you teach?

I teach both at home or at tutees' homes.

- When are you available?

All times of the week.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages and levels.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE and A level Maths and Science.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Confidence or the lack of it is the problem I encounter most in students. If you miss things, get behind or just can't follow your schoolteacher it becomes hard to enjoy Maths. Once you start to dislike a subject it gets harder and if you don't do well, it seems difficult to regain confidence. Start getting help as soon as possible.I love building confidence in students and watching them grow to like Maths in just 2 or 3 lessons.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching Maths since 1996 and have taught one to one as well as in classrooms. I have been the head of the Maths department in a prestigious private school.I now run a Maths and English study centre in Brighton and teach at home in Lancing.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes. Updated Feb 2013.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Kumon Instructor

- Tell me about some of your current students.

From Tania Obeji, Worthing: (A-Level Maths) :
My son is currently being tutored by Suresh. He has expressed greater understanding in the area of mathemaics he had trouble with, thanks to Suresh's excellent teaching skills. My son gets along fine with Suresh therefore making teaching and understanding easy. I am therefore very pleased.

From Sally Eastland, Worthing: (A-Level Maths):
Suresh is an excellent, patient and dedicated teacher. My daughter had gained a grade A at GCSE, but two months into A level studies had dropped to a forecasted grade U. Struggling to keep ahead of her maths A level, her other subjects quickly began to suffer and she was fast losing confidence in her abilities. Although highly professional in this field, Suresh's calm and supportive approach to teaching has enabled my daugther to quickly regain confidence in the subject; she is quickly catching up with the rest of the class and will soon be ahead of the syllabus, thus alleviating the pressure. Suresh has made the forumla's much easier to understand, using different methods of teaching until he finds one that fits with my daugther's understanding. Hence, there is every possibility that my daughter could achieve a Grade A or A* in this subject because of Suresh's support.

From Shirley Clarke, Worthing: (GCSE Maths):
Suresh made this an easy choice of a tutor as he is very positve and has quickly formed a bond with my son. I would recommend him as feel confident in his abilities to tutor . My son feels well supported and already more confident for his GCSE's next year.

Jim Dolby, Lancing:
Suresh helped my son alot in AS Maths and I would definitely reccommend him.
