12 Years of full time tutoring experience.
In person or online tutoring (on the Zoom App). GCSE/IGCSE/AS/A Levels/National 5/Highers/Advanced Highers and lower levels. A Master of Mathematics graduate from UEA (2011). Half of my students tend to be preparing for exams, using the techniques I've perfected to help guide them through their exam periods. Most students will tend to require confidence boosting and I've had the most satisfaction being able to change opinions and beliefs about the subject, helping to show the student that they're capable of anything they set their mind to.

Since university I've enjoyed tutoring part time and full time and was also contracted for a few years by Honiton Community College to provide individual and group tutoring sessions to underachieving students, during and after school.

Tutoring Experience

I started tutoring GCSE maths part time in Year 13 (S6), providing a very structured tutoring by my school. The students engaged well and it helped to have people of a similar age that the students could relate to, enabling a more relaxed learning atmosphere. I also informally helped peers of various levels whilst at university, maths students but also engineering and foundation levels. When my services were required in a particular area, then they asked for help on short notice.

I've been tutoring full time over the past 12 years, working 7 days a week from the new academic year onward. Peak hours ranged in excess of 40hrs weekly. I've therefore assessed the likely weaknesses of a student and have already provided and perfected the best methods of explanation.

Tutoring Approach

Casual tutoring of areas of difficulty, or a more structured learning of a curriculum. Either intense learning (several school years of maths into months) or weekly troubleshooting. I've established good quality material for any level. Plenty of students just require good material and direction for their efforts, with positive reinforcement to really shine. Many long term students will tend to then appreciate and enjoy study, visibly moving towards their goals.

The first meeting will be free with the aim of getting to know one another, and establishing their strengths, weaknesses, and the pace at which the student requires. At which point a structured plan of action can be drawn up. In some cases the tutee may lack the confidence in certain areas, and even a casual troubleshooting session every now and then can set their worries at rest.

Should extracurricular material be required or wanted then I'll be happy to provide. This material might not be hard for the tutee, but will help link in various areas of mathematics and will require a little thought about the patterns seen. It's never compulsory, but with a little encouragement a little extra goes a long way.
