At your first session, we'll discuss where you are now with your maths and where you want to get to. Whether your goal is to pass or to achieve the highest grade, to be successful in an exam first time or to resit, I can help.
From the information you provide I'll design a programme of study aimed specifically at helping you achieve your goals. I'll discuss and agree this programme with you before your tuition starts, and we'll keep it under review together, monitoring and updating the programme as you progress. Working 1:1 we'll be able to immediately address any concerns you may have.
I can support you to succeed whether you want to improve your grasp of maths basics, focus on particularly troublesome topics, get extra practice in material you're covering in school/college or revise in preparation for exams.
Each hour-long session will be tailored to meet your individual needs. I usually cover two different topics per session to keep the momentum going. I also like to link topics to ensure things you learnt earlier are not forgotten.
As a genuinely enthusiastic maths tutor, I like to use a variety of materials - for example to help you understand conditional probability I may use playing cards, and to help you understand volume and visualise 3D trigonometry problems I may use nets. My teaching approach will be specifically designed with you in mind and I'll draw on your interests to make maths relevant for you.
I'll provide homework to consolidate your learning, and guidance on good exam techniques - with tips on how to get the extra marks that'll help you achieve a higher grade. I'll also recommend the revision guides that will be most effective for you.
During each session I'll provide feedback and encouragement to build your confidence and improve your skills.
I'll help you celebrate your successes and identify further opportunities that will help you move to the next level.
I'll provide opportunities for you to give feedback to me - what worked well, what less well for you?
My aim is to ensure you are completely satisfied with your maths tuition, that you can see the positive impact on your confidence and skill levels - and that you recommend me to your friends as a great Harrogate maths tutor!
