My teaching style includes understanding the student’s curriculum and helping them understand the fundamentals of maths and offering general maths support. I would also identify the student’s weaker areas in order to overcome them as well as introducing exam style questions to help them prepare for their exams.
I have provided tutoring in person to GCSE students while studying at sixth form and more recently have been tutoring a student online since April 2020.
During the first lesson I would understand the students experience with studying Maths, what they feel their weak areas are or what they think they need my help with the most. I would also understand their curriculum if they’re studying at school and the teaching style as well as the exam board they will be using, so that I can structure my teaching in a way that will seem familiar to them. I would focus my lessons on a certain topic that the student may be struggling with, starting with basic questions before introducing more exam style questions. I would also assess the student on each topic before moving on to the next topic and occasionally I would assess the student using past exam papers to identify further weak areas.
