Lesson subject matter is usually student-led, but always encompasses brain warm-ups and an infusion of history to give the subject more relevance. I bring along a whiteboard and pens for both of us to use, to promote conversation and the flow of ideas. I try as far as possible to promote mental calculation, pending my students' interest and ability.
Mathematics is a skill that needs to be trained, as much as it is material that needs to be memorised. My philosophy is that everyone can be great at maths. I consider it part of my job to make my students want to be great.
I've moved a GCSE student from C to A, had an A-Level student achieving at least B's in her core modules and helped a colleague pass her PGCE maths test.
I graduated Durham writing a dissertation on Measure Theory and Fractal Geometry, and completed 13 modules at A-level with a focus on the core modules. My interests are pretty varied, however, and consider my time on stage a great indicator of my general enthusiasm and presentation skills.

Sam tutored me for the teacher training numeracy skills test. He was very patient and enthusiastic. If I didn't understand a concept he would find several ways of explaining it until we found one that was right for me and that I understood. I would thoroughly reccommend Sam as a tutor.
Samuel was my tutor during my study of A level maths. He is very friendly and comfortable to be around. If there was a concept I didn’t understand, Samuel would explain it in many different ways until I understood, and would patiently work along side through the problem so each step could be explained if needed. He also offered support outside of our sessions and was just a quick email away. Ultimately I achieved a grade higher than I was predicted, which I believe is due to his help and support, and so would highly recommend Samuel as a tutor!
