Thank you for visiting! Sorry! I am no longer offering a tutoring service whilst I concentrate on other projects.
I am a qualified secondary school teacher of Maths and Science with over 20 years experience of teaching Maths and Science to all abilities.
I have spent the last 5 years in school working exclusively with GCSE students who were not achieving their potential in Mathematics.
Based on my success with this work I am now offering study sessions to support learning out of school.
Pupils in whole class situations can withdraw from the learning activity if they fail to understand the work being studied. It is common for them to not ask for help which in turn leads to a lack of understanding, loss of confidence and inhibits progress.
Working with pupils in a 1-1 setting allows for the following:
- Confidence building
- Removes the worry of getting things wrong
- Ability to ask questions in a supportive environment
- Opportunity to unravel individual misconceptions
- Develop a concrete understanding
The sessions are aimed at providing support for Year 9, 10 and 11 pupils. The sessions would also benefit Year 12 pupils preparing for a GCSE resit.
Each session is 45minutes long and learning activities (homework!) will be provided to support each session.
Do not hesitate to contact me to discuss any aspect of the tutoring services being offered and to check availability.
