My Experience

I have worked with Frome College, Clarendon Academy and Ralph Allen School in tutoring students in KS3 and GCSE Maths. I tutored in collaboration with teachers to help students with topics they found difficult, especially in the lead-up to exams. I am familiar with Edexcel and OCR exam boards.

My Approach to Private Tuition

My approach to private tuition involves identifying the needs of each individual student, highlighting any problem areas and then coming up with a plan to tackle these problems. I do this by making maths as relevant as possible, drawing on examples of why maths is useful in real life and not just something to learn for exams. Working through a range of problems will improve confidence in each topic and having both interest and confidence in a subject will inevitably lead to better results. Those results will then instil further confidence in a student and the cycle continues. My job as a tutor is not to spoon feed students the answers, but to help them realise that they can do it themselves.

Fun fact

When I was young, I got the chance to play violin in front of the Queen. However, I very nearly missed out on this opportunity by forgetting my bow on the day of the performance. Luckily, I managed to borrow one from somebody else!
