About my sessions

I always start by ensuring you comprehend concepts entirely, so you have the foundational understanding needed for exam questions. I will happily go over concepts in various ways, using different explanations and methods until you are confident you understand them properly, so we can build on them. Then we’ll go through exam-style questions together so you have some guidance, and I see what areas you’re particularly strugglin...

I always start by ensuring you comprehend concepts entirely, so you have the foundational understanding needed for exam questions. I will happily go over concepts in various ways, using different explanations and methods until you are confident you understand them properly, so we can build on them. Then we’ll go through exam-style questions together so you have some guidance, and I see what areas you’re particularly struggling with, or where you could be losing vital marks. I also write down all essential formulae and methods so if you miss anything through the tutorial, or want the key points summarised, it’s all there for you in an easily digestible format. I want to push you to be the best you can be, with our sessions helping you to gain confidence as well as knowledge.

What experience do I have in being a good tutor?

In sixth form I ran a maths homework help club for GCSE and A-Level students, tutored A-Level students while at university, and at school I tutored primary school children. This means I've tutored almost every single age group and so I know when a student needs me to simplify concepts to strengthen their core knowledge, and when students can handle more complex topics.
