I am a professional tutor. I have provided one to one support successfully to clients in and around Bristol since 2004.
Availability: I tend to be available all of the time but being busy it's best to call me as far in advance as you can manage.
Willing to travel: 50 miles
I taught KS3 and GCSE Maths at a number of schools in the Bristol area and a school for the deaf in Newbury, but I soon realised that I was better suited to one to one tuition. Classroom teachers are not allowed to spend more than a few minutes each lesson with an individual student, since this would imply neglecting the needs of the group. The skills required for one to one tuition are also very different. Many accomplished teachers find it difficult. My experience in delivering tuition has taught me that establishing a strong working relationship requires patience and a sense of humour. The level and depth of focus on the students needs is intense but the student should be unaware of this and experience an informal, enjoyable exploration of their subject.
