- 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.

Background

- 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.

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

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

ARCS (associate membership of Royal College of Science)

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I tailor my teaching style to each student's learning style. This helps to maximise the quality of each lesson for the student.

Many of my past students have achieved A/A* in their maths exams, and many have gone on to study at leading universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, Leeds, UCL, members of the Russell Group and various medical schools.

I have taught students from many local schools and colleges, including Latymer School, Ashmole Academy, Alexandra Park School, Fortismere School, Southgate College, Woodhouse 6th form College, St Michael's Catholic School, The Mount and Westminster School. I have helped many students get the grades they need to go on to study Medicine at university.

I helped an International Baccalaureate student improve her grade and she gained entrance to the university of her choice.

I helped a Birkbeck, University of London, student with their "Quantitative Techniques for Financial Engineering course

I helped a student with the maths elements of the first year of their degree in Economics at University College, London

I helped a Russell Group university student with their Third Year Group Theory course.

I have helped several students with their Open University degrees in mathematics.

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.
