During sessions, I would first ask how the student feels with different maths topics so that I can get an idea for the topics that need to be covered in depth. Then progress through the topics with example questions in which I go through them step by step. Moving on to the student going through the questions with my supervision and help. Until it becomes natural and easy for them to do it by themselves. I find this approach works very well as the "practice make perfect" saying is very relevant to maths, it being an applied subject. I will measure the progress of the students through weekly independent tests and set homework's, which I will subsequently walk through the following week.
I am a Maths student in my second year of studying at Durham University who has been tutoring at GCSE and A level standards for 3 years now. I have tutored long term for 4 students who have all experienced great growth in their mathematical ability, all achieving their aims which varied from achieving a 5 at GCSE from originally studying at a grade of 1 and achieving an 7 when aiming for a pass.
Durham University BSc Mathematics 2018-2021
St Cuthbert’s High School and Sixth Form A level and GCSE 2011-2018
A level: A*AA(Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics)
GCSE: 8xA*, 2xA, 2xB including Mathematics and English
I achieved A* in maths and Physics at GCSE, and an A* with distinction in Further maths. At A level I achieved an A* in Maths with an average UMS of 95/100 over 6 modules. Which I believe represents how my understanding of mathematics at this level is both broad and deep. I also achieved solid As in both physics and Further Maths. I am now a student in my first year of studying maths at Durham University.
People often come to me for help with understanding different mathematical concepts as I have a knack for making them easier to grasp for people struggling to understand them. This can be seen by the family friends I have helped out for their GCSE maths exams. Both times, the students have been grateful for the help and still ask for my tutoring regularly.
