Fun, Warm and Engaging Maths Tutor

My specialist subject is Maths (up to and including GCSE level).

I am new to tutorfair having spent the last four years tutoring for another tuition company. In this time I have provided over 500 hours of tuition and have tutored a wide range of ages and abilities.

I studied Architecture at the University of Cambridge. Studying at an Oxbridge university provided me with a very high level of education which I find extremely useful when providing maths tuition.

Maths is a great subject to teach and I am particularly interested in the various ways it can be interpreted by students. So far I have found that students have varied ways of understanding and approaching mathematical problems. Because of this I tailor each lesson to meet the students’ understanding and approach. I have found one particularly effective method of teaching is to get the student to pretend to be the teacher. This gives the students an opportunity to explain back to me the concept which reinforces their own learning in a way that is fun.

It can be difficult to keep younger students engaged, to combat this I like to keep the lessons fun by using other resources online or by using physical objects such as lego.

My experience to date has given me good knowledge of the various exam boards. I also have a solid understanding of the preparation needed for 11+ and 13+ exams.

I enjoy being a private tutor and working with young people. I believe the one to one relationship has huge impact for the student's learning. Working with students is a fun and dynamic process that I plan to continue with in the future.
