Individual lessons allow students to develop their self-confidence, and give them the time and space to develop understanding and ask questions in a relaxed and unthreatening environment. It may be that you struggle with a particular aspect of Maths, or you have missed a topic because of illness; or perhaps you need ongoing support to develop the confidence which comes from having someone experienced and knowledgeable teaching and encouraging you on a regular basis.
As a qualified Maths teacher with over 20 years' experience, I have helped students to prepare for the following exams (among others):
- A-level Maths and Further Maths
- IB HL, IB SL, IB Maths Studies
- Additional Maths, Further Maths GCSE
- GCSE and IGCSE
- Entrance scholarships to a variety of independent schools
- Common Entrance 11+ and 13+
I can offer ...
- advice and feedback on your UCAS personal statement
- training and practice for MAT (Oxford) or STEP (Cambridge and Warwick)
- university interview practice and guidance
For those already at university and struggling, for example with the Statistics needed for subjects like Psychology, Biology and Geography, I can provide help and support.
My hourly rate is £120, which is comparable to that of private tutors with similar experience and background. While you will find tutors who charge less, for example Oxford University students, with an experienced teacher you are assured of someone who is able to explain complex concepts in a clear and straightforward way, who has the insight to anticipate what a student might find difficult, who has relevant professional teaching qualifications and years of classroom and one-to-one practice, an in-depth knowledge of the course specification, and an examiner's knowledge of exam technique. All these factors will give a determined and hard-working student a distinct advantage.
Maths lessons online
Using web-based applications like Scribblar and Skype, students across the world are able to take lessons without leaving home. Many people these days prefer this option, for convenience and ease. My hourly rate for online lessons is £120. A graphics tablet is recommended, e.g. the Trust Flex tablet.
