Geared towards Primary and Secondary school students (any level) who are looking to improve their day-to-day skills, prepare for exams or prepare for the next steps after school.
I would want the student to be in charge of what they want to learn - it's pointless for me to teach them things they already know, or don't need to know. We can go through an entire syllabus and highlight areas that need even the smallest amount of work, up to topics that are a complete red flag.
One by one, we can work through these, creating notes, covering worked examples and then ultimately looking at exam papers. By the time you reach an exam paper you should feel confident.
As a student, I always did better when I wasn't made to feel silly for not understanding and was sometimes scared to speak up and ask for help so I'd rather a student was honest and felt comfortable to say when they don't get it.
I'm currently a Maths, Statistics and Finance student who has studied at both St Andrews' University and Strathclyde University in a wide range of subjects. I studied maths at school (Intermediate 2/Higher/Advanced Higher) and tutored 13-14 year olds (Scottish 3rd Years) throughout my final year in preparation for exams!
I understand a student's willingness to take control of their studies can be difficult to deal with, and it can be hard to find the balance between a knowledgable, skilled teacher that they can trust and someone they'll be able to listen to, connect with and communicate well with. As much as I can pass on my knowledge and tips, I can also connect well with students to meet their needs!
£20 per hour to drive or travel to your home or meeting place, and £15 per hour for webcam lessons! Also happy to discuss paired or group sessions if all kids in one family would like tutored/neighbours/friends prefer to not be on their own!
Also happy to discuss rates :)
I focus on primary and secondary school teaching but am happy to stretch to university years.
Regardless of what level a student is at, I'd appreciate a list of what a student is struggling with in particular - whether that be one topic or an entire course.
We then go back to basics and start from the very beginning to work out where it is they're getting lost.
I'd then like to focus the attention on creating clear and concise notes together, that make sense to the student (i.e. not a copy of notes I've taken from a textbook and handed to them) on each topic one by one that can be referred to when needed, followed by a lot of practice. The best way to succeed in maths is to see an example and then do your own worked examples until you're confident with the processes.
When feeling comfortable with these topics, we can then move on to an exam setting and look at past papers.
