About Richard

*** Bath University, first class with honours- Master of Mathematics (MMath) *** Oxford University, PGCE in secondary Mathematics *** Fully qualified teacher working at an Outstanding school About: Using the combination of a deep understanding of mathematics gained from Bath University, and exposure to key ideas in conveying mathematical concepts from Oxford University, I teach maths everyday in a secondary school to students from key stage 3 through to GCSE and A Level. 

Throughout my tutoring sessions, my approach will be focused towards exam success. Over the past 6 years I have taught a variety of students: from teaching at Bath University to teaching English as a foreign language in another country to teaching A Levels and secondary school students. 

This experience has helped me develop an empathy with the learners, which fosters a freer dialogue between tutor and tutee. Previous students have described me as a patient, friendly and approachable teacher/tutor. I hope you would find the same :) Method: From experience with the latest ideas in mathematics education, I identify what the student understands and where their misconceptions in mathematics lie. 

Once this is established, I can call on a range of techniques and methods to convey key mathematical concepts, best suited to the student. This could involve anything from using abstract diagrams, to applying different "exam smart" methods to solve difficult problems. Once the misconception can be identified that is inhibiting a student, and is corrected, a deeper understanding of the course material is developed, which ultimately leads to exam success.
