I first ask my student what their weaker topics are and explain these. We go through example questions, gradually making them do more of the work to understand and remember the process. We’ll repeat these topics at later sessions to recap.
My teaching approach involves asking students how much they know about their topic first so I know what to cover and what not to cover, thus saving time and spending more time on struggling topics. I also tell students to read their book and explain to me what they learnt which also tells me what to fully cover.
I see each complex section in science and mathematics as a composition of relatively simple questions whose solutions often involve the application of rudimentary mathematical and scientific axioms. As such, I seek to impress upon my students the importance of decomposing problems by rewriting the questions posed in a generally longer but more comprehensible form.
I base my teaching depending on each student's learning needs so I do not have a fixed teaching methodology. However, whichever way, in the end, I apply more for demonstration, examples, tests, exam among others. Most importantly, I make sure I cement a very good relationship with my students and then take it from there thereby ensuring they get the best out of the tutoring relationship we have.
I am a qualified teacher and have an MA in Leadership. I focus on the individual I am working with and ensure any gaps in mathematical knowledge are identified. Starters will include questions involving key calculator and non calculator skills.
Undergraduate student seeking to tutor GCSE'S and AS level maths aswell as adults studying access course to HE maths. My teaching is based on your level of understanding so therefore I try to explain the part of maths that you may find challenging i.e. algebra , equations , factors , graphs expression and formulae and trigonometry. These is through many examples and past exam like questions .
Practise is the best way to learn maths so when teaching it, I begin by explaining a new concept to the student, then going through a few problems with them, then letting them go through some problems alone to highlight any problems so I can then explain and fix the problem.
I tend to vary my teaching method depending on the needs and learning style of the student. I like to teach by a direct approach, encouraging the use of past papers to perfect exam technique and practice. I also tailor my teaching to follow the exact syllabus taught to the student, to ensure their exact learning needs are met.
My method of teaching is entirely dependent on the student. I will adapt my teaching style to meet their individual needs. I am also not ran by the clock, meaning I will go to whichever lengths it takes to ensure the student meets their goals.
I have experience of teaching university students during my degree and believe I have a friendly and effective approach to learning. I prefer a more relaxed style because I feel the most successful learning occurs when students are engaged and feel comfortable asking questions. However, I am very flexible and can also accommodate for students that would like a more formal, classroom-style approach.
My teaching method is systematic, in the respect that both you and I will set goals to achieve and I will create lesson plans to ensure they are completed efficiency and effectively. My lessons are not only a time for specialised learning, but I will incorporate games and fun to ensure the retention of attention and the willingness to learn more.
I am a physics and mathematics graduate with experience tutoring primary and secondary students.
I have a natural talent for numeracy, and systems thinking. I have been an IT and engineering professional for the past 12 years. I enjoy teaching aspiring students and helping them cultivate and recognise their own innate gifts. I pride myself in being able to listen, truly listen, before setting those that I tutor on a path of self discovery.
I have tutored a range of students from all backgrounds and can offer students methods of teaching that suits them! I have a lot of experience with students on the Autistic spectrum and am willing to try different ways in which to enrich your knowledge of mathematics. We will assess your strengths and weaknesses and work from there.

I'm a Mathematics student at the University of Leeds, currently on track for a 1st and in my 3rd year. I'm from Wakefield and so am able to continue with lessons based in West Yorkshire (or anywhere in Britain via Skype) when away from University.
I am a 26 year old Mathematics teacher based in the UK but Australian born. I have many years of tutoring experience and teaching experience. I pride myself on finding the right explanation for you, there is always another way to explain something! I also specialise in exam preparation and revision tactics.
My method of teaching is based on what the tutee is struggling with the most and then when they feel confident with that I will then move on to everything else that needs covering within the national curriculum just to help them achieve the best overall grade they can.
My experience tutoring to classes of students in impoverished areas has reinforced my ability to form conceptual understanding of topics to a wide variety of people.
I am calm and patient, with a knack for explaining mathematical concepts. I tailor lessons to individual and group needs and pupils have always commented on my ability to pitch lessons at exactly the right level. I am available evenings throughout the week.
My methods of teaching include lecturing, demonstrations, collaboration and debriefing. My lessons are fun and interesting and I am great at breaking things down in a way that helps retain the information. I will teach good exam preparation and techniques.
My teaching method is to work through example questions with the student then allow a chance for the individual to attempt a question alone.
I believe in an all-round teaching method based on individual needs. I prefer to give a solid foundation needed for the course before moving on to difficult concepts. Since I am an aerospace engineer, I can help students doing mechanical engineering, aero engineering, aviation course and chemical engineering. I can also teach basic mathematics to all levels.
I approach each pupil dependant upon their needs, build on concepts that they are familiar with and use methods that are best for each student. For example some pupils might prefer visual aids whereas others may prefer descriptive examples. Everyone is unique and everyone learns their own way, I will attempt to find what that is and nurture it to the best of their ability.
Each session I introduce a new structure in code i.e. reading from a file or algorithm and encourage each student to apply this within their project. An individual's project is encouraged to be on a theme of their choosing e.g. a money manager tool would still need a database of sorts as would a holiday planner. Both might need form validation.
To be a great tutor, I believe you must have patience and respectful tone. It is essential to make sure the student doesn't feel belittled and to try to see where the problem lies in the understanding. I have always been good at Math from my GSEC honours and College degree and even in College my lecturer tried to persuade me into continuing the subject but I couldn't, because of my career path.
First- year medical student from Leeds. Provide online help with Chemistry up to A-level standard. Past papers are the best way forward! Will mark your attempted papers, provide advice where you have gone wrong and model answers for big mark questions.
I am a patient individual who is set to improve a child's efficiency in mathematics. My credentials are the proof of my mathematical knowledge. I have secured 99% in high school and 95% in secondary education and top grades throughout university.
I studied the O levels in Singapore and A levels in the UK. However, I only recently graduated so I can very much understand the frustrations of a student when you do not understand certain concepts and principles. As a previous maths geek I'm sure I'll be able to help you cope better with your work in school and your preparation for the upcoming examinations.
I believe students become productive when they learn through real live scenarios. I try to relate all the concepts of Mathematics to the real world examples and try to explain the real practical need and use of these concepts.
