I adapt my teaching style to the personal needs of the person I work with. Everybody is different, and therefore the teaching style needs to be adapted appropriately as well.
I particularly like working with students who struggle with Maths and see them grow in confidence and ability over the period of time. I find it extremely rewarding. I focus on building up my students' confidence. I use the Growth Mindset principles to assist them in overcoming fear of making mistakes and self-limiting beliefs. In this respect my approach could be described as wholistic and person centred. I believe everyone can make progress in Maths, provided he/she gets some support, has a growth mindset and is ready to make effort :-)
I was pleasantly surprised when I started offering online tuition in 2017. I think it's a legitimate and efficient way of learning Maths. In order to work online you'll need a good wi-fi connection, install the Zoom software/app (it's free) and preferably have a headset available. I use an equipment that allows me to share what I'm writing on the screen. I often ask students to send me the photos of their work. This allows me to share it on the screen and identify the mistakes, annotate the work etc. I always tell me students that they need to work with someone they feel comfortable and OK with, so I encourage you to try a taster session with me before you make up your mind.
I started helping friends with Maths when I was still in the Primary School. I always found it easy to make Maths simple and accessible for people. I have a Maths degree from the University of Technology in Gliwice, Poland and I have 10+ years of experience of teaching Maths individually and in the school setting.
Jacek very quickly formed a very good teacher/pupil relationship with my son who warmed to him immediately and respected him straight away. Jacek in turn respectfully engaged with my son and encouraged him to seek the answers himself. My son hugely lacked confidence in Maths and Jacek helped him to believe he could do it- and he could! I am very grateful to Jacek for his patience and straight-forward approach. He is very calm and has great integrity and sincerity. I could not recommend Jacek more highly.
