About me

Hi I'm Emma and I am currently studying Mathematics at the University of Southampton and plan on training to become a teacher at some point in the future. I have been tutoring GCSE Maths and Physics since 2015 and have also worked for a tutoring company specialising in Maths, English and the 11+ for almost two years. As a result, I have tutored many different ability levels and have learnt how to adapt my teaching style accordingly. I love tutoring because I once struggled with Maths and having a tutor gave me the confidence that I needed to succeed, so, being able to help other people achieve their potential is really rewarding. I aim to create a really positive learning environment for my students because I believe that it's incredibly beneficial for their learning and also makes it so much more enjoyable! One of my top session aims is to show my students the joy of learning and the power that being enthuastic towards learning can have over their success!

About my sessions

My initial session will focus on gauging areas for improvement through practice exam style questions and chatting about topics that the student wants to focus on. My sessions will be very interactive with lots of practice questions as well as worked examples to provide students with a better understanding of how to set up answers in a logical and easy to follow fashion. I will also recap key information and techniques from the previous session in the first 5-10 minutes of every session to monitor progress and ensure that students have a good understanding of topics that we have covered. Where possible I will also provide some questions for students to practice with on their own between sessions in order to further solidify their understanding.

Just got my results back. Emma helped me get from a grade 6 in my mocks to a grade 9 in the real exam. Definitely worth choosing her as your tutor :)

I started physics tuition with her in Jan for my GCSEs in July. Although it would've been better to start earlier, Emma made sure to cover every topic thoroughly with me before my exams. She's very helpful and friendly, and I would definitely recommend her :)

Questions Emma has answered

2476 people are at a football match. The ratio of men to women is 3 : 1. How many more men than women are at the match?

Ratios are a way of comparing the amount of two things in a whole. In this case we are comparing the number of men and women in a football match, so, the total number of people at the match is equal to the sum of men and women. Using the ratio, we can add the 'parts' together to get 4. So in order to find out how many people, out of the 2476 people at the match, create one 'part' of the ratio we would divide 2476 by 4 to get 619. Now, we can find out how many men and women there are. Only one 'part' of the ratio consists of women, so we know immediately that there will be 619 women. We have 3 'parts' for the men so we can calculate the number of men by multiplying 619 by 3 to get 1857. To check this we can add the number of men to the number of women and see if it comes to 2479 (619 + 1857 = 2476, so we are correct so far). Finally, to find the difference we simply take 619 away from 1857 to get 1,238 as our final answer. Ratios are a way of comparing the amount of two things in a whole.
