My name is Angus Bolton, offering maths tutoring to primary and secondary school pupils.
I focus on specific aspects that the pupil requires explanation of, starting with the basic rules, and ensuring they understand them with a mixture of demonstrations and giving them the chance as well.
I have experience in helping children with maths, assisting a junior team of pupils to finish second place in their maths challenge, by focusing on how pupils approach questions and challenges.
I have been giving lessons for about a year, with all pupils delighted at my teaching style and their exam grades.
