I begin by finding the areas where a student needs more thorough understanding, either by asking directly what topics they would like to unpick, or starting from the (question-solving) problems they bring me where they need help. This allows me to go back the necessary number of steps to ground them thoroughly in the basics of that topic; then work through some examples at that day's level (and set some for the student to take away and tackle alone) before working up through subsequent levels of that topic. Repeat for as many topics as necessary!
I'm a former teacher at a leading girls' public school, where I taught for 13 years, with pupils ranging from 12 years, well pre-GCSE, up to some brilliant Further Maths A Level and Special Paper students. I have also given private tuition. I now write travel books, give travel talks - and breed and compete rare horses! But I am missing my maths...
