- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I do not tutor online, sorry.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I strongly believe that a good grade for A level maths is within most people's reach, so long as you get a good grasp of the concepts, and practice enough relevant questions, especially exam-type questions. In my lessons, a student has no option but to get involved, thinking, and solving problems. I find this very effective in getting the student to gain understanding relatively quickly and comfortably. By obtaining regular feedback from my students, I ensure that the student is learning. I try to adapt my teaching style to the student's learning style.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have 16 years teaching experience, as well as several years experience as an A level examiner for OCR. I have a high success rate (many students achieving As and A*s). My experience as an examiner helps me to advise students on exam technique. Having taught a wide variety of students, I am able to find suitable explanations of difficult concepts that the student can understand. I have taught small groups as well as one-to-one. I have worked for various tutoring agencies, and saturday schools, in the past.

At first I was having trouble with maths and found it to be my hardest subject. However, after I finished my A2 exams, my highest grade was in maths, and it helped me get into university. She was a very kind and helpful teacher, and I found the teaching very useful and detailed!
I was very happy with the way Miriam taught me. She demonstrated extraordinary patience in explaining and re-explaining concepts I found hard to grasp. Her kindness and pleasant demeanour meant I always felt comfortable and relaxed around her no matter how stressed I was about my studies. She effectively guided me throught the theoretical side of each unit, and also covered their practical applications in exam questions. I am very glad I found her when I did.
Miriam has been a very good and patient tutor. She has improved my mathematics knowledge and grades. I think she is very adaptable and can fit her knowledge to any challenge. She understands many ways of giving information. I believe to teach a foreigner Mathematics is very difficult but she never gave up. She would be a very good tutor for anybody.
