Very experienced maths teacher at top London 11+ school
With 11 years of experience at both high performing state and independent schools, I am excellently positioned to support boys and girls to widen their understanding of mathematics and English, think more systematically and apply their skills to more advanced problems.
I have a long history of raising standards in many schools including being rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted three times. I currently work as a specialist maths teacher in a prestigious London independent school so have a wide experience of 7+ and 11+ preparations.
My tutoring approach is to ensure core understanding and address gaps in knowledge before introducing new concepts. I do not believe it is appropriate to work on high-level skills if they are being learnt on top of misconceptions or poor core skills. I find that this leads to accelerated progress and better understanding and fluency.
