As a qualified Maths teacher, I have taught Key Stage 3 , GCSE and A Level Maths to a large number of students of varying abilities over the past 24 years. I have high expectations of my students and ensure that as well as enjoying the sessions they are making good progress. I encourage my students to ask questions, especially those they didn’t feel happy asking in class, and then give them clear and precise answers. As a result, my students gain confidence and belief in their own ability and consequently, their grades improve.
My previous teaching experience allows me to ascertain very quickly the students' strengths and weaknesses and I am fully aware of the common misconceptions that students have. Having set and assessed exam papers throughout my time as a teacher I can help students to improve their exam technique and give them strategies to
approach even the most challenging questions. I have built up a large number of highly effective techniques and resources to enable the students that I work with to achieve the best grades possible.
Jon has been helping my daughter with her A level AQA maths prep for the last 4 months - he has seen her for an hour each week. She has really enjoyed these lessons and her results are much improved, and her confidence too!
He is always very organised and has tailored the sessions around her needs! He has printed off many questions for her to practice (which have been hard to find as new spec). He has even seen her for extra practice the night before each maths exam to ensure she was well prepared! No hesitation in recommending Jon!
