In recent years, my tutoring has mainly been to students who are concerned about achieving the GCSE grades that they require. So I always ensure that I am sympathetic and responsive. I find new and engaging ways to explain what is going on with a set of concepts, how they fit together and why they make sense. I provide examples and work through them at the pupil's own speed, giving encouragement and sharing the pupil's joy when everything finally makes sense. I always expect the student to work through several problems, so that I can see how the student is thinking and correct any misunderstandings. For this reason I emphasise ways to "show the working" so that an examiner can see what process is being followed, and of course so that the student can easily identify and correct any slips.
I am a researcher with a degree in Mathematics and experience as a classroom teacher and as a tutor. In the classroom I taught groups of students who were very varied in ability, knowledge of English and previous educational background. This taught me to develop different strategies in response to the needs of different pupils -- after all, every child is unique and learns in different ways. Since then I have regularly tutored in maths to friends and families. I have taught other subjects (Business and Social Studies) in higher education, both at undergraduate and masters level.
I will add on the cost of travel by public transport when necessary, but normally travel by bicycle (no charge). I will only charge for travel time if the journey takes more than 30 minutes.
