Primary school math support and focussed, private lessons from a qualified teacher

Methodology

I ask my learners and their guardians how lessons should be arranged. With Primary Maths, it is not possible to cover every part of the curriculum and it would be a poor use of time to try. Instead, I like to base my teaching around the needs of the learner and find which topics they lack confidence in. After detailed lessons and advice, I like to allow students to use their new knowledge and cement their understanding.

Experience

I am a qualified teacher based in Worcestershire. I have been teaching in Primary schools in my local area and conducting online learning support since 2019 and have been running online, focussed support throughout 2020 and 2021. I have a PGCE, enhanced DBS and plenty of references.

John tutored my daughter in preparation for her auditions to drama and dance school. He was very helpful and worked with her for about 2 months, helping her pick a suitable monologue and talking her through the process of auditions. She was very anxious about the process and John noticeably helped keep her calm.

John has worked with my primary school class (year 4), helping them with some kid friendly Shakespeare plays, and they had a blast. We managed to do some acting, reading and even a little writing.
