An experienced and qualified maths teacher, passionate about enjoyable learning.
Having taught mathematics in local schools for 13 years I have loved helping young people to build their confidence and realise their potential. As an examiner for AQA I understand exactly what students require in order to meet the challenges of the new exam and bring this experience to my teaching. Classes of a maximum of four students enable teaching to focus on individual student needs while encouraging interactive and enjoyable learning.
Initially I teach students one to one as this gives them an opportunity to build their confidence and get to know me, and for me to get to know them and how they like to work. After some time, and if I consider it suitable for individual students, they may pair up or form small groups in order that they may benefit from the mathematical interaction that this will allow. When arguing a mathematical point, eradicating misconceptions, or explaining the mathematics to another student it helps students to fine-tune their own reasoning and enhance their understanding.
Where do I teach?
When tutoring I teach from my home classroom in Burley in Wharfedale.
