For most of the last three academic years, I have been working in the Maths Department of a local ‘outstanding’ secondary school. My role has been to provide specialist support for those requiring additional help with their Maths in Years 7 through to 13.
Earlier in my teaching career, I qualified as a Teacher of Economics and Maths, teaching A-level Economics and Business Studies at a top Sixth Form College.
I’ve also successfully applied these subjects in the workplace during a long career in the Financial Services Industry including senior managerial positions.
My approach to tutoring is to spend time fully understanding the exact nature of support needed, then exploring practical methods for improving performance and results. Recognising that each student is unique, the key to success is to ensure that the individual fully understands and is confident in using the agreed methods.
“I just wanted to say thank you very much for helping me with my maths over the last year … you have been very helpful and without you, I would not be where I am today.
My family and I appreciate your efforts in driving all the way from Harrogate just to help me with my maths for an hour. You have been more than great and hopefully, we will see you again.”
