Mathematics is a creative discipline and I believe that it should be primarily taught for understanding rather than just remembering rules. I am an enthusiastic, dedicated and imaginative teacher who wants to see his students achieve their potential. I am a specialist Mathematics teacher and specialise in engaging and challenging students with learning difficulties.
Every child is different and therefore I use numerous strategies to develop their confidence in order to be creative with mathematics. When students are creative with mathematics they are developing crucial skills such as problem solving and the ability to deal with abstract concepts. When teaching I ensure my students are able to justify their responses rather than just giving answers. I can cater for low ability students who struggle with mathematics as well as challenge the high ability students. I have high expectations of my students and I don’t believe they should be pigeon holed by their target grades.
NB: I have been DBS certified, and am also willing to help with my other specialist subjects.
