Excellent exam preparation and references. I have countless success stories of students that I tutored. I have the ability to explain any level of maths in a very simple way. My students often say I make maths easy. I am organised and patient, and my friendly approachable character makes students feel welcome. As someone with a positive attitude towards Maths, I can transfer this positive attitude to the student. Recently I got this message from a parent: M wrote about you as his most inspirational teacher in his UCAS personal statement!

I am well experienced teaching all ages from children to adults. I have taught students with a wide range of abilities, from those who are preparing for entrance exams right through to students studying A-levels and those trying to achieve an A or A*. I am familiar with all exam boards. I have an endless supply of worksheets and past papers and practice papers. I can, therefore, provide lots of practice on every topic. I successfully worked with students with various learning disabilities, which included dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, Asperger syndrome, slow processing and ADHD. I taught students from most schools and colleges in my area and some from around the world (online). During my time as maths tutor, I learnt how to apply different teaching methods to suit individual students’ learning needs. I have been successful in building students’ confidence, enjoyment and motivation to achieve the highest possible marks in all Maths exams. For some, it was a pass and for others, it was an A or A*. (One of my students achieved 99% in his final IGCSE exam). I am a well experienced QTS Numeracy Skills Tutor with countless success stories of students, from all over England and Ireland, that I helped to pass this challenging test. I believe that most students have a good mathematical ability but often struggle with their confidence in Maths. I help students feel much more confident and motivated, which increases their ability. During the lessons, I always check that the student can do the work covered in school since I last saw them. We focus on problem areas, helping the student to deal with misconceptions, practice examination techniques and recent exam questions, working at each student’s pace.

I'm sure Lauren has told you that she passed her tests. She was quietly confident going into the numeracy having got some very good marks in the online practice tests and I think that also helped her in the literacy tests too.
We were very fortunate to find you and that you were kind enough to fit Lauren's lessons into her free periods at such short notice. QTS Numeracy Skills

As an adult who never grasped maths as a child, Janet has been superb in improving my confidence and showing me I did understand more than I thought. When Janet stated we were going right back to basics my heart sank. She was however, absolutely correct and as noted above this is given me the confidence to believe I can do it, if I think about it for more than 2 seconds.
