Hi I'm Sian and I am an ex secondary school Maths teacher, turned full time tutor. I have a PGCE with Qualified Teaching Status from Newman University, and a BSc (First class) in Medical Studies from the University of Birmingham. I tutor Biology and Maths at GCSE level,  although I am looking forward to adding Maths at A Level in the near future

My whole academic life has felt like a series of exams, so I can understand that you may be stressed and you may even be doubting your own ability. However, I believe that with hard work, a sense of humour and a friendly teaching style, success can be achieved minus the frustration and exhaustion. I'd like to show you the exciting side of learning and get you passionate about your subject in order to help you get your top grades!

I have a wide range of experience with different pupils of varied abilities through my teaching career, MyTutor, private tuition, Explore Learning Centres, and teaching abroad. You can feel at ease knowing you are in capable hands. I want to help you think and work smart, so if you are interested in being tutored by me, please drop me an email and we can arrange a free meet the tutor session.

About my sessions

How do I prepare, structure, and deliver sessions? We will look at examples/concepts to build up a good base knowledge, however you learn best is how I will teach it (think about your learning style). After this we can work on practice questions - real life problems are increasingly common in the new 9-1 GCSE, so focusing on these is excellent practice. Nearer exam time we will focus on exam papers. I compile resources, questions, exam papers (I have a very big bank of resour...

How do I prepare, structure, and deliver sessions? We will look at examples/concepts to build up a good base knowledge, however you learn best is how I will teach it (think about your learning style). After this we can work on practice questions - real life problems are increasingly common in the new 9-1 GCSE, so focusing on these is excellent practice. Nearer exam time we will focus on exam papers. I compile resources, questions, exam papers (I have a very big bank of resources from my tutoring/teaching career) so that our sessions are as useful and varied as possible. I have a lot of experience in explaining difficult concepts simply, and my preparation focuses on ensuring you leave a session feeling much more confident than when you came in.

How do I measure your progress so that you can achieve your goals? First I need to know what your goals are; what grade are you aiming for? Once I know that, I can tailor my preparation, resources, and delivery of the session itself to you. As your tutor I feel it is important to stress that you are my priority, and that your achievement is paramount - I want to boost your confidence, reassure you when you mess a question up, and give you a reality check if you get lazy on me! I will use a variety of mini tests before each main topic, and again for after; this will help us visualise your progress and pick up on any areas for improvement.
