I am a fully qualified maths teacher with an outstanding track record of success, the modal progress of my weekly students has been 3 grades. I am a professional, patient and friendly tutor with a fantastic subject knowledge of the 1-9 GCSE/IGCSE, A-Level and Primary Maths curricula that I use to tailor learning to your child's needs.
I hold degrees in both Economics and Politics and have tutored these subjects up to A-Level.
I am comfortable teaching a wide range of ages and abilities and have experience working with an award winning SEND and Inclusion department at my last school.
I was raised in a military family moving schools regularly throughout my childhood being taught in both public and private schools. Changing schools so regularly I have seen first-hand, the massive effect both outstanding and inadequate teaching can have on someone’s future. This drives me to try to provide a world-class education to my pupils.
After graduating from the University of Manchester with a degree in Economics. I joined Teach First, one of the countries most prestigious teacher training programmes. There I Qualified as a Mathematics Teacher working in the Yorkshire and Humber region. I have since gone on to teach in an OFSTED rated Outstanding School in the Manchester area while gaining a Masters Degree in Philosophy and Political Theory and then taught at an award winning International School in the Middle East.
As a mastery based tutor I create an individualized program for each of my students based on their specific needs. I ensure regular assessments and a personalised tracking program filled out on a regular basis at the end of each session so that parents can see the progress that has been made.
If you've lost your confidence, if you need help with exam technique, if you feel you have gaps in your knowledge or if you are just looking to reach that next grade I am here to help.
What I do when I am not tutoring
I love travelling and have just returned to the UK from teaching in a British International School in Jordan. There I enjoyed scuba diving, exploring accident ruins and hiking the Jordan Trail.
