MIRIAM - London - 11+ School Exam Preparation

Methodology

Imperial college Maths graduate with 17 years teaching experience. A-level examiner. High success rate. I am an Imperial College graduate with a BSc and MSc in Pure Mathematics. I help students perepare for the 11 plus and 13 plus entrance exams. (I also helps older students prepare for the university entrance exams: CSAT, MAT, STEP and AEA. Please look at my advert for A level tuition for more information, if interested). I have helped many students with the entrance exams for local schools, such as Latymer, Queen Elizabeth's School and St Michael's Catholic Grammar School. The fees are

AT MY HOME........:£30 an hour
AT YOUR HOME ......£45 an hour

I normally tutor at my home between Wood Green and Palmers Green. I am available 9am to 9pm, all days, including weekends and holidays, but availability will depend on other students. I have experience of teaching students with learning challenges, such Dyslexia and students with Autism.

Entrance exams can be daunting for young children, so I aim to try to build up their confidence, and to help them to fell more comfortable with the challenge. I try to adapt my teaching style to the student's learning style. The first lesson will often be an assessment of the student. Then we may commence working through the Bond books or other recommended books, practising the questions which will appear in the tests.

Background

I have 17 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.

I have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate/

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.
