How I tutor

Tutes are one-on-one, and are one hour long.

Tutes are highly tailored to individual needs, taking account of upcoming assessments.

One aim is to work closely with the school – topics covered are those from recent classes.

Students bring questions, and we work together using a straight forward highly engaged approach to finding and resolving sticking points.

Tutes are relaxed but are none-the-less intellectually intense, where the working-method of the student is watched very closely to identify troubling issues.

Students gain confidence by developing deep understanding and competence in manipulation; from these emphases, students will find that memory load is reduced.

Topics taught start from the known and advance carefully and surely at a pace which suits the student. This is accompanied by appeals to common sense often via the use of concrete materials.

I make discriminating use of digital learning technology; the free program GeoGebra® is used for some instruction and exploration.

I keep close contact with parents or guardians. This has been valuable in helping students to keep focus, not only on maths, but also more generally, say, on reading skills.
