Tutoring description:
Tutoring experience: I am currently privately tutoring students for their upcoming GCSE examinations, while I have previous experience in tutoring AS-level, A-level and undergraduate degree level maths. I have always received excellent feedback from my students. I am constantly learning from my experiences and adapting my methods of explanation. Everybody thinks differently, and that is one of the joys of tutoring - being able to see and understand how each of my students approach various questions. I relish the opportunity to take on a new student and the challenges and satisfaction that come with it.
Tutor's approach: I am friendly and approachable. I want my students to be able to freely ask me questions so that we can work together to identify gaps in understanding, and focus on consolidating a broader knowledge of the subject. The main aim of the sessions will be to help you improve on the material you are studying in school with an emphasis on excelling in the exams, but hopefully we can deepen your appreciation and interest in the subject along the way. I care about each one of my students and will take the time to provide personalised homework questions and revision sheets on request.
Personal description: I am a recent maths graduate from Durham University. I am passionate about maths, but get great satisfaction from my many other hobbies, particularly surfing and football. I am personable and easy going and thoroughly enjoy tutoring maths.
