Subjects I teach
Maths up to A Level
I have 6 years of full-time teaching experience at comprehensive secondary schools in London, with a proven track record of raising the attainment of students across the age and ability range. This means the lowest attaining year 7s right up to the highest attaining year 13s.
I began privately tutoring in my 3rd year as a full-time teacher and quickly noticed that I could be even more effective tutoring individuals by adopting a bespoke approach. Private tutoring has enabled me to become familiar with the major examination boards, including Edexcel, AQA, OCR and WJEC. I also have marking experience for Edexcel which gives me an insiders knowledge of their requirements. Demand for my services has also extended to the 11+, where I have experience of successfully preparing students for the entrance test at schools of the caliber of Wilsons, Wallington Grammar and Whitgift in the county of Surrey.
In addition to 1-to-1 tuition, I have undertaken group tutorials since April 2016 with the largest provider of small group tuition in the UK. I have become one of their go-to tutors as a result of my outstanding reviews. Increasing demand for my services means that I am highly likely to become a full-time private/small group tutor in 2017.

My Approach to Private Tuition
Maths is a confidence subject, so an early priority of mine is to increase a students confidence in the subject. This is partly a function of having strong relationships with students. Diagnostic assessment is also an integral part of my approach as many students have gaps in their learning which prevent them from going past a particular point.
Lessons that I teach also seek to engage students in a way that isnt always possible in a classroom. For instance, having greater scope for discussion of what is being taught. Engaging resources that I have amassed over the last 6 years from various schools that I have taught at in addition to various conferences and seminars result in my students enjoying the journey as well as the end result.
