15 years experience of teaching maths key stage 3, GCSE and A level
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
Passionate about maths teaching and learning. I am an avid follower of maths on twitter and read widely about the current issues in education. Having worked in the independent sector for 14 years I have had the opportunity to not only teach at all levels but also be involved in teacher training and mentoring of new staff.
GCSE and A level maths teaching. My pass rate for both is 100% and my students achieve on average one grade higher than their predicted grade. I use retrieval practice, spacing and interleaving of topics to ensure that learning is transferred to long term memory.
My lessons start with a recap of prior learning, new learning using 'I do, we do, you do' assessment for learning before independent practice and problem solving. An exam question will be included in the lesson followed by an exit ticket which will consist of multiple choice questions. Students have to explain not only the correct answer but also the misconceptions that led to the wrong answer. I feel it is important to have depth of knowledge questions to master the topic
I have done personal face to face tutoring for 14 years. 5 years ago I started online tuition and was tutoring students in Doha using skype and whiteboard fox. As soon as lockdown happened I was teaching remotely using ipad apps, after a few months I was teaching via Microsoft Teams and a digital pen.
I have taught IGCSE and GCSE maths for Pearson, level 2 further maths for AQA, additional maths, Edexcel core maths and A level maths for AQA and Edexcel.
