I have been a maths and science teacher for over 20 years. My colleagues and I also operate an academic coaching school after our day school teaching. Over the years we have learnt a great deal more as to what constitutes successful learning in maths and science and the most effective ways for all students to achieve at a higher level. As a professional maths and science teacher with over 20 years’ experience in teaching, I am confident in my ability to provide the support and encouragement for students to achieve their success. (please refer to my students' feedback above).
My teaching methods incorporate building a student's understanding of a particular topic to increase their confidence, enjoyment and interest in the subject as a whole. This is a self-reinforcing cycle that results in stronger improvements as evidenced by previous tutoring. Each lesson is designed to focus on students' unique needs, whether through helping struggling students become high achievers or extending the ability of already capable students.
My focus (more than just tutoring!): * focusing on smart time-saving finesse, * pressure management, * multi-way double-checking techniques, * recovery learning from mistakes and errors, * confidence gaining, * formulated problem-solving strategies, * exam oriented tactics & tips * thoughtful and logical approach rather than cramming, * learning procedure in simple steps from examples via formulas to summary; are some of the teaching and learning experiences.
