A friendly approach and careful assessment helps me identify pupil misconceptions. I then ensure clear understanding of basic skills using a range of strategies. This approach leads to new self confidence enabling students to make rapid progress.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I don't worry about how much you DON'T know!! In fact, I actively encourage ALL my students to give me a blank look it they "don't get it"!! I can't help you to improve unless you tell me when you don't get it. This then gives me the opportunity to go back to basics to find out WHY you don't get it...then you can start your learning!!
Teresa is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been in the teaching profession for over 11 years - 8 years as a KS2 teacher and 3 years as a Teaching Assistant. I have been tutoring in the local area for the past 15 months, helping students prepare for SATs, 11+, GCSEs (and iGCSEs) and retakes. I have now left f/t teaching to further my tutoring commitments as I love helping children who want to learn, achieve their full (sometimes unrecognised) potential!

Teresa worked with my daughter for her maths GCSE. She greatly improved her confidence and understanding. After only four one hour sessions M achieved 98/99 in her mod 5 Maths Exam. We were amazed! We have also used Teresa to help with Science which has been just as effective. I would highly recommend Teresa she is extremely knowledgeable, excellent value for money and has a way of building confidence where others have failed. I am more than happy to speak to anyone personally if you wish.
Teresa helped my daughter to gain her confidence with maths. She was able to quickly identify her strengths and weaknesses and plan teaching sessions accordingly. This enabled my daughter to achieve a realistic goal set by Teresa and my daughter, a B grade for her module 9 maths. This was achieved, gaining a mark close to an A grade. She is now working towards module 10 and the higher terminal paper with Teresa.
I am a year 11 student who needed a lot of help with my module 9 maths work due to poor teaching. Teresa helped me with the work i did not understand and worked at my pace until I was confident with my work. I have recently had my results and have been very happy with my mark, which was achieved by the encouragement and excellent teaching that I received
Teresa worked with my daughter for her maths GCSE, greatly improved her confidence in the subject matter and helped her to have a greater understanding of maths which she does not find easy. Very professional, knowledgeable and definitely value for money. Will be using her services again in maths as well as science
