I have been a maths and science teacher and tutor for over 15 years. Over the years I myself have learnt a great deal more as to what constitutes successful learning in mathematics and the most effective ways for all students to achieve at a higher level. I have specialist experience in teaching at all year levels including year 11 and 12 maths (SACE and IB). As a professional maths teacher with several years’ experience in tutoring and teaching, I am confident in my ability to provide the support and encouragement students need to achieve 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 classes. The level of work is designed to improve the particular student, whether through helping struggling students become high achievers or extending the ability of already capable students. Sessions start with an introductory quiz to determine their level of knowledge which is marked and discussed. I always prepare a lesson plan and worksheet which includes a range of questions that relate to students' tests or exams each lesson. All year 11 and 12 students will participate in at least five SACE or IB practice tests before their school assessments to ensure they are well prepared.
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.
Maths is fun. I will let you know how to 'Play with MATHS'...
