I have been teaching maths for six years in good and outstanding secondary schools. I have experience teaching key stages 3 to 5 including the new GCSE (2015) and the new A Level (2017), both Maths and Further Maths. Having taught 14 different year 7 classes during my time in schools I feel I have a good understanding of the key stage 2 SATS. I have also taught in a grammar school and an independent school so feel I can help with the 11+ and common entrance exams.
My teaching style is one of calmness and support. I really enjoy maths and I don’t think it’s my job to make you do maths, rather it’s my job to make you want to do maths. I try to break topics down into smaller chunks, explain each part one by one with practice questions in between. I always set homework, not to test you, not to continue doing the same things, but to find out what you need to work on so that I can plan lessons around your needs and not follow a regimented scheme of work.
