Build confidence, achieve, be successful
GCSE Maths is a stressful time with a large number of topics and methods to learn and understand. I can work with you to become more confident through practice, explanation and confidence building. Having extra time on a one to one basis allows for time to revisit and review topics.
I work with the syllabus of all the main exam boards and with both foundation and higher level papers.
Sessions are usually weekly for one hour, however if you have different needs then please contact me.
GCSE tuition costs £25 per hour
I have worked for 14 years as a teacher and have taught age ranges from 11 to 18 in Computer Science and ICT covering GCSE and A-level courses as well as being a Key Stage 3 and delivered GCSE Maths .
I have had excellent results and in Computer Science I have delivered in the top 10% in the country for value added for the students in my classes.
Private tuition students that I have worked with have frequently achieved results at least 1 grade higher than their school prediction.
As a tutor I can come to you or you can also come to me. I provide all the resources and exercise books for each meeting so you just need to turn up. I use a mixture of videos, presentations, text books, printed text and verbal resources to instruct and offer guidance and support with students who with different learning styles and preferences.
My approach to tutoring is friendly and patient. I can provide a scheme of topics that we are going to cover, however this can be tailored to your needs. The scheme is not set in stone, so if there is something pressing that you want to cover then I will cater for this and focus on where you feel there is a need for further study. I am a believer in the student being tutored leading the sessions meaning I will focus on what you need and what your ability is, differentiating tasks to suit. The student is also encouraged to be curious and to try, not worrying if they make a mistake and get things wrong. My view is that this develops strong problem-solving skills and resilience as well as building confidence in their own ability.
Tuition sessions can be on a one-to-one basis or in small groups. Prices are provided for one-to-one, please contact me for group costs.
Information on the different subjects, costs and courses supported are outlined below. The first hour of tuition is always 100% free.
