My teaching method is practice focused. I cover the theory of the topic first, go through some examples - pointing out common mistakes. And then lead the student through answering their own questions and allowing them to fully understand the topic and process of answering the problem in full.
I am an ex Maths teacher currently working in marketing. I worked as a trainee teacher for 6 months and have worked as a tutor for 2 years prior to this. Outside of the classroom I have tutored 3 times, all of them exceeding their own expectations in their summer exams.
