Through my calm and patient approach, students` confidence in their abilities increases and their understanding deepens. I have enjoyed helping students through difficulties with their subjects while endeavouring to find and solve the problems students have in their understanding to give them a firmer grasp of the topic.
Both students and parents have offered positive feedback from the great improvement in their grade as a result of my tuition. For example, a student`s grade in A Level Physics improved from originally an E to an A after my tuition, while others attend their preferred schools after taking entrance exams.
Availability: I teach at both my and students` homes. Based in North London, I am particularly happy to serve Barnet, Enfield, Haringey, Harrow, Camden, Hertfordshire and beyond. I do require repayment for the cost of travelling. Both individuals and groups of students are welcome. Available day and evening, I usually tutor 6 days a week.
Willing to travel: 50 miles
After various school placements, such as teaching classes at St Aidan`s (ranked amongst the highest achieving comprehensive schools in the country), for over five years I have helped a multitude of pupils ranging from as young as six through to mature students. Having experienced rigorous training, I am an Examiner for a major board and have relished the challenges of marking candidates` papers. I feel this gives me an invaluable perspective when preparing my students for their own tests.
I am familiar with the different examination boards, particularly AQA, Edexcel, OCR, CIE and ISEB. Covering English and Reasoning where desired, I have prepared students for 7+, 8+, 11+ and 13+ entrance examinations as well as the STEP and PAT tests required for the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. With my tuition, students have gained entrance to the schools of Aldenham, Fulham Prep, Harrogate Ladies, Sedbergh, Charterhouse and Latymer. After my tuition, candidates attained the necessary grades for their university offers, including from Oxbridge, to study courses relevant to our preparation. I also have experience aiding with IB and professional skills tests together with Pre-U and IGCSE.
I am happy to offer tuition for all other syllabuses as well, for example WJEC and for free-standing maths qualifications. I also offer tuition to adults wanting to improve their own maths understanding and skills, for example to help with their career or to pass graduate skills tests such as Kenexa, SHL and numeracy for QTS etc.
I have helped several with Asperger Syndrome, those with dyslexia and students who are home schooled or have had to change school due to behavioural difficulties or conditions including severe physical handicaps or speech and language difficulties. These pupils were often rather behind in their studies. Furthermore, I have been trained for and have taught looked after children and also have experience of helping those for whom English is an additional language.
