Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

Tahmina has taught both in primary and secondary schools in Brighton, and Kent as well as tuition centres including 'Extra Tuition Centre' and 'Tuitions for you' based in North West Kent. She is very familiar with the 11+ structure and has very high pass rates of students who secured their places in Grammar Schools.

She is currently working as a fully qualified mathematics teacher in an inner city secondary school in the London Borough of Harringay. Tahmina has experienced an OFSTED inspection and was judged overall as an "outstanding teacher" under the new OFSTED framework 2016.

Tahmina teaches SEN pupils on a day-to-day basis including those who suffer from discalculia (difficulties with arithmetic), dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, and autism. She uses engaging and innovative methods to teach diffiicult concepts in mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

In the initial lesson, Tahmina assesses her student's current level and aims to build upon their current knowledge and understanding. She works with pupils on an individual basis and personalises lessons to cater for their learning needs. Tahmina uses engaging and innovative methods to teach difficult concepts in mathematics. Using ICT is essential, PowerPoint's, e-learning such as mymaths and mathswatch are all used to engage learners and consolidate their learning. She often addresses difficult areas of the mathematics curriculum by making links to real life contexts and personal interests. For example teaching negative numbers links are made to shopping and overdrafts to engage pupils to something they would want to buy themselves. This has been proven to be an effective method within classrooms in outstanding schools and is therefore replicated within a one-to-one scenario.

Tahmina is an inspiring and enthusiastic tutor, who is committed to teaching and helping your child achieve their full potential.
