About me

From a young age I have always enjoyed Maths. I particularly liked how I could tackle a question, get an answer and then immediately check to see whether my answer was either right or wrong. If my answer was correct, then that was great! However, if my answer was wrong then I could go through my working out and find the exact point where it went wrong and learn from my mistakes!

From a young age I have always enjoyed Maths. I particularly liked how I could tackle a question, get an answer and then immediately check to see whether my answer was either right or wrong. If my answer was correct, then that was great! However, if my answer was wrong then I could go through my working out and find the exact point where it went wrong and learn from my mistakes! I have recently graduated from University and I am currently working in school providing 1-1 Maths tuition for pupils of all abilities. I think I am quite a fun; confident and sociable person and I am truly passionate about the subject I tutor and hope to pass this on to all my pupils I tutor!

About my sessions

I believe that there isn’t one type of session that fits all pupils – to maximise the time I have with the pupils I tailor my sessions to the pupils needs and learning style. My sessions are completely pupil led and no two sessions will be the same! If there is a particular topic or subject area a pupil is struggling with then I will spend as much time as the pupil needs to help them feel confident on their topic. I prefer to use a mixture of simpler textbook questions and harder past exam qu...

I believe that there isn’t one type of session that fits all pupils – to maximise the time I have with the pupils I tailor my sessions to the pupils needs and learning style. My sessions are completely pupil led and no two sessions will be the same! If there is a particular topic or subject area a pupil is struggling with then I will spend as much time as the pupil needs to help them feel confident on their topic. I prefer to use a mixture of simpler textbook questions and harder past exam questions in my sessions depending on how confident the pupil is with the topic. For instance, I wouldn’t give a pupil struggling with a topic a super hard question because that wouldn’t be productive use of time. Instead I we would work through questions of ascending difficulty until we both feel that they are confident enough to tackle the harder questions. Likewise, if the pupil has a good understanding of a topic but wants to be extended more then I wouldn’t start with the easier questions but instead match the difficulty to the pupil’s capability. I have access to a wide range of KS3, GCSE and A Level questions, both textbook and past paper, from a range of exam boards which provide lots of practise for my pupils!
