Maths Tutor Solihull and Malvern

Methodology

Whether you are sitting your Maths exam for the first time, preparing for a resit or just feel you're being held back by a difficult class in school/college, the Maths Surgery is here to help. Visit our site and get in touch!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Maths.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I'm an experienced and qualified teacher of Maths for 12 years, examiner for Edexcel and OCR and recently Head of Maths in a busy High School for 6 years. My role as Head of Maths was primarily to structure provision of Maths to make sure all students enjoyed and excelled in Maths whatever their level but I was also responsible for training Maths teachers, coaching qualified Maths teachers and developing the curriculum to give the best possible opportunities to our students.

- How much do you charge?

Lessons are 1.5 hours and are £38 for GCSE, £43 for A level. One to one online tuition is more expensive - please enquire.

- Where do you teach?

The Regency Hotel in Solihull and also in Malvern

- When are you available?

I am available on Saturdays for group tuition in Solihull
I also have groups running every day Mon to Thurs 5-6.30 in Malvern
Support and coaching is available throughout the week by arrangement.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

14-18.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE Maths and Further Maths
A level Maths

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I run effective and successful online sessions through Skype. Please ensure you have a good connection and hard wire in for these sessions. These sessions are more expensive than my small group tuition - please enquire

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Problems with Maths, mental blocks and low Maths esteem are unique to the student and small class sizes are vital to kicking obstacles out of the way in order to thrive in the beautiful subject!
Maybe you are doing well in Maths but need a small group environment to relax and grow your potential?
Maths is personal and whether you need to develop your potential or overcome a problem, you need an experienced coach to help you through.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

My expertise is in intervention; structuring classes for the individual. It's really great to spend time in smaller groups and get down to the nitty gritty!! I've worked with students experiencing difficulties in Maths for many years - there's no one formula that works for everyone. The key is to work out what you're good at, what's bothering you (and why) then fix it! Easy!

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Full and Current CRB for Birmingham and Malvern

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am an examiner for OCR and Edexcel

My teachers told me I couldn't get more than an E grade. I saw Lou for 2 years once a week and got a B grade. It was hard work but we had a laugh and got it done. I recommend Lou to anyone

Lou's an awesome tutor. She's really fun and makes it interesting and memorable. She tutored me for a year once a week and I moved from a D to a B grade. Thanks Lou

B

Lou provided a very friendly and flexible service that fitted around my work life. Her tuition improved my Maths score significantly. I would definitely recommend her to others sitting their UKCAT or other Maths exam.
