I personally believe that no two students are able to learn the exact same way. For the most part, however, mathematics exams in the British school system rely on the ability of students to learn methods of solving problems, become proficient at the use of these methods, and then recognise these problems when they emerge on exam papers. The first step would involve a detailed explanation and step by step walkthrough of the methods which are used for solving equations. The second step then requires the student to practice with a set of these questions, where the primary focus is to become comfortable with application. Finally, the last step is to go through a number of past papers where the student is initially given assistance in the form of prompting to help recognise questions. Once the student has a level of experience with this, they will attempt previous exam papers on their own, which can be used to find the specific topics thenstudent has difficulty with. These topics will then be focused on in more depth so as to reduce the amount of time required for the student to improve their marks. Primarily, the main issue facing students in the modern day is the volume of work required, and as such I believe that one of the most important skills that I can teach is effective use of time, which can allow for both better marks on examinations, and increased time for other activities which can reduce stress and improve well being.
I am a current Undergraduate at University College London, sudying history, but I have studied maths at a very high level as well. I come from a family of teachers, and look to be one in the future. Having lived in three different countries, and having attended a variety of different schools, I have experience in a range of teaching styles and am able to adapt to the needs of different students.
