I have always had a keen interest in mathematics. I have had a diverse work background, spending many years in the construction industry as a carpenter before moving into education. I am patient and like to believe I have a good skill in teasing out how someone learns. I believe that no two people learn the same way. This comes across in my planning, where I leave scope for a lesson to be dynamic and ultimately student led. Building of independence in learning is important for development. My tutoring approach is to firstly identify any gaps, address these, build a strong mathematical foundation, then build on this. With the new strong focus on problem solving in the new curriculum it is of utmost importance for students to build strong problem solving skills. I bring in problem solving to my planning

I have been tutoring mathematics for 8 years. I began in 2010 when I returned to education to pursue a degree in mathematical sciences. In 2014 I graduated with a 1st. Since then I have worked various roles in universities for three years. I have been a mathematics tutor for undergraduate students, I have worked in learning development, I have worked as a disability support tutor, I have worked as a study skills tutor. I have also worked in research in the area of cryptography. In September 2017 I began my PGCE. I chose a schools direct route which have given me invaluable classroom experience. I have developed a deep understanding of the national curriculum across key stage 3, 4 and 5.
