I am a positive, empathetic, enthusiastic and very passionate about the sciences. I have high expectations of my students and ensure I build their confidence through meeting their learning needs. I am committed to supporting my students raise their achievements beyond their expectations in a relaxed and safe environment to enable them enjoy learning and succeed.
I teach using a learner-led, confidence building approach using plenty of examples and breaking down concepts into their simplest forms. I also encourage students to practise their weak areas, as well as honing skills already learnt. My learners soon find out through constant practise that they understand the subject. My main aim is to enable all my learners to `get` it. I prefer to give homework for every lesson and ensure they are marked in a timely manner. I also take my learners through exam techniques, revision schedules and past papers as well as provide detailed feedback on areas to improve and work on.
I have a degree in Mathematics from the University of Warwick in the UK, in addition to secondary level qualifications (GCSE and A-level) in Physics.
I tutored students in secondary school-level Mathematics and Physics in the UK for several years, helping my students to get to grips with the topics and to pass their exams. I received excellent feedback from both students and their parents. I currently work as a Transport Consultant in the CBD, which includes exercising my mathematical skills by analysing data and my teaching skills by mentoring junior colleagues.
I enjoy reading, walking and have been learning to play the guitar for 10 years. Apparently musical and mathematical ability often go together - not in my case.
A lot of my free time is spent with my three children, keeping them entertained and (generally) out of mischief.
