Maths tuition up to A level, Advanced Higher in Edinburgh and beyond

Methodology

uition is one-to-one and given online or in person in the tutees own home.

I ask all tutees to aim high and consider obtaining an A grade. My method is:

*at all levels we will work on a review of previous maths. For most this will involve looking at:
number
place value
adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing — written and mental methods of calculation and estimation
fractions
shape
triangles quadrilaterals, and circles

* encouraging you to develop your number skills

*looking at making more of your scientific calculator

* working at mastery of ‘C’ level skills (for those in Scotland and doing Higher the SQA state that 65% of marks in Higher Maths are available at this level). ‘C’ level skills are those that can be practised and hence improved.

* promoting the spirit of mathematics eg looking at some puzzles which are away from the usual maths curriculum

* encouraging the use of common sense

* developing flexible thinking

*putting maths into context — why is maths important to our society?

*bespoke notes developed with you to help you get the maths you struggle with

*help with revision and exam preparation

Ideally I am looking for tutees who feel that they could improve with some input, and who are willing to commit to steady work on their skills. Everybody can improve their maths skills, and thence their grades, with good tuition and personal effort.

I am a professionally qualified teacher, and experienced tutor, offering tuition in mathematics. My method is to instill a positive attitude in my tutees towards their maths studies. This combined with hard work on basics should see them through.
