After working for 15 years in the computer industry to General Manager level, I decided upon a change of career to spend more time with my daughter. For three years I volunteered at my daughter’s primary school whilst working towards a BSc Mathematics and its Learning degree with the Open University where I successfully passed in June 2017.
I have been tutoring since 2013 and using knowledge gained from my degree, PGCE in Secondary Mathematics course and experience in business as well as school, I devised a comprehensive maths programme for Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 that will ensure your child gains the highest level possible as well as enjoying mathematics as a subject.
I adore teaching maths and I see that same passion coming through the students that I teach when they are able to discover concepts for themselves or when they finally understand topics that they struggled with beforehand. In most cases, students struggle through lack of confidence and understanding and it is my aim to raise their self-esteem with each and every session so that are able to meet and surpass their targets.
I have devised activities to cater for the new curriculum and will adapt to suit your child’s individual learning style. We all learn in different ways and each lesson will be adapted so that your child fully understands the topics being taught as well as strategies to help your child to remember. It is not necessarily the quantity of exercises they can carry out, but more to do with how your child can apply their knowledge to discover new concepts. Your child’s understanding is the vital element that will ensure their success and therefore will be the main focus of every session.
I am based in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire and DBS checked.
