I give lessons to GCSE and A-Level students in Maths, Further Maths and Physics, both in person (in Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge) and online. Having completed my GCSEs and A-Levels myself rather recently, I can relate and see problems from a student's perspective.
I think that the most useful and effective way to teach someone maths is by breaking it down into simple terms, and building this knowledge up again into more sophisticated understanding.
I do not teach processes, in order to be successful in mathematics you must understand why things work the way they do. This enables students to approach unfamiliar problems with a strong understanding and ability to link areas of mathematics together. I take pride in the relationships I have my students and getting to know their individual needs really well.
I like to make my lessons personal to the student I teach. We will work together to uncover your weaknesses and then I will base my lesson plans on this information. I am able to teach course content and also exam technique. As a student taking public exams for the last four years I have valuable first hand knowledge on how to answer exam questions.
The current A levels are incredibly content heavy and rely on so much more than just knowledge. My approach to exam preparation consists of teaching proper exam technique and utilising both the Feynman and Pomodoro techniques in an attempt to remove rote learning whilst increasing the students ability to concentrate for prolonged periods of time.
Statistics and financial techniques can be some of the more difficult for undergraduate and postgraduate students to grasp. However, many of these knowledge gaps can be filled by simple and timely, 1-on-1 support.
I will first test to see what level they are at then teach them appropriately at their pace and level
First, I would ask the student to do a practice paper to see wheree his strengths and weaknesses in that subject are. Then i would focus on those weaknesses until the student is strong enough in that topic to answer questions on it confidently.
For maths tuition i find it best to go over past exam questions, finding issues that arise to work out where knowledge is laking or needs improving. Then from there we can focus on making sure that area is fully understood so that similar questions, and those using the same theory become a breeze.
My teaching methodology is looking at the individual topics within the GCSE/Module, assessing strengths based upon verbal communication as well as past paper questions. I like to then get to the bottom of what the student does not understand and explain it from the ground up, so people know why they do things as opposed to remembering simple rules for everything.
I achieved an A in physics and an A* in maths at GCSE and hope to help those younger achieve the same, or better, grades. I'd do this by focusing on developing their understanding of the topic before giving them a set practice.
I teach using direct instruction, which involves worked examples, often requiring students to then answer questions on mini whiteboards. This is followed by independent work where I am there to help with any questions the student may have. I expect students to complete work outside of tutorials and regularly set exam questions or homework for this.
I approach each topic, in the way I was taught. Examples and being attentive to the key areas in which students are struggling. Through repetition and associating the problems with the interests of the student, it is possible to learn and keep focused throughout the lesson.
I am in year 12 at Judd and study mathematics, chemistry, biology and geography and achieved 8A*s and 3As at GCSE
I base my classes on the topics primarily on the exam board specification or beyond as necessary to suit the student's needs. I make sure to adjust the way I explain a topic to suit the student's learning style, being able to adapt my approach to teaching any topic. I utilise topic related past paper questions where appropriate to ensure a thorough understanding.
I try to base my lessons around the individual student, how they learn and what their interests are. In order to enhance their education I focus on trying to improving understanding rather than just absorbing content and aim to keep classes fluid in order to maximise engagement throughout.
I studied General Engineering at Oxford University and am currently still a student working on a Computer Science degree from home. I have been tutoring Maths and Physics for 2 years now around Tunbridge Wells and East Grinstead.
I can teach anything up to A-level/IB level maths. I am happy to take whatever approach, whether that be going through past papers, explaining more difficult concepts, going through examples etc. I am a lively and friendly person and I always aim for my lessons to be both as enjoyable and productive as possible.
Fun enthusiastic - and I would like to think helpful. Very hands, informal method of tutoring in addition to organised helpful notes and validity. I can tutor up to GCSE level and Ad maths as I am currently completing my A levels.
My teaching method is to approach each subject in a creative manner, in order to make my lessons more memorable and accessible to all. I have several specific techniques for every subject including important and useful resources available for all.
I am a Masters Engineering student at the University of Exeter with a background in Mathematics and Physical Sciences. I teach students anywhere from primary education through to A-levels at school and college.
An enthusiastic and hard working physics teacher who is able to teach students across all ages and range. Vasilakis can help pupils make sense of science and get them fired up about the subject. He takes his job very seriously and he is planning science lessons that involve demonstrations, lectures, discussions and hands on experiments.
I teach all aspects of Maths, including algebra, fractions, decimals, percentages, ratio, geometry, trigonometry, arithmetic, statistics, averages, graphs etc. I can tutor anyone from 5 to 50, but I mostly help teenagers with their GCSEs, A Levels, SATs and ACTs. I tutor the three main subjects that people seem to want tutoring in; Maths, Science and English.
Find the real underlying problem of understanding and sort that out. Often comes down to missing definitions of words and symbols. Students say I'm very good at explaining things they haven't understood. Patient and friendly with a light touch..
I am a part qualified actuary who also has a teaching qualification and experience. My lessons will include listening to my students needs and assessing their weak areas with guidance and pratice in answering exam level questions. My approach will be friendly and encouraging.
I am currently studying maths at a level and can help anybody studying and preparing for GCSE maths. I took the new exam for edexcel last year and achieved a grade 9, and so have knowledge of the subject content and am confident with the mathematical methods used. I can help by talking through methods and explaining concepts to students. I also am able to provide practice questions and answers.
I like to tailor my classes to suit the student’s needs. I start by assessing the goal/objective of the student and then plan the best method/route to achieve this goal. I am approachable and patient - my students feel they are able to ask as many questions as they like.
I am currently studying maths with the Open University. I'm very passionate about maths and believe it should be fun for everybody! For younger students, I would include lots of educational games and challenges to make sure they enjoy learning.
I'll give lessons to secondary school mathematics students (up to year 12 level). I'll take a topic a student is struggling with and begin by explaining the theory behind each concept, running through a few examples to get started. From then on, the student can go through questions of increasing difficulty with me there to support them.
My teaching method is what I believe to be the best way to learn; which is the intuitive method. I believe that making the student understand the subject matter will not only help achieve the better grade but will also help the student retain the subject material for longer.
