Approach to Teaching"I am a (male) private tutor with a degree in mathematics and many years of experience of providing excellent tuition services. I provide students with lessons tailored to their individual learning styles and to suit their specific needs, whether that be a thorough understanding of background knowledge, help with subject areas and topics they find particularly difficult, or last-minute exam tips. I will discuss with each student their personal learning goals and preferred approach, and adapt my teaching to suit, thus ensuring that each student gets quality teaching focused on their particular requirements and preferences. I am passionate about mathematics. I love to teach and I do so with energy and enthusiasm - we work hard in lessons, but we have fun as well. I have also been trained in counselling skills, so students can be confident of an understanding and sympathetic teacher. I am conversant with the syllabuses of all the major exam boards I teach at all levels, from Primary to A-level to first-year degree or adult numeracy. All are welcome. I prefer to teach in the dedicated area in my own home as we can then be sure of a quiet and comfortable working environment, with a wealth of resources readily to hand. I have been a private tutor for over 10 years, and have coached many students of all ages, through exams at various levels, from primary school to degree level, with especial focus on Maths and Further Maths A-level. Feedback has been enthusiastic, and I am very happy to have been of help to so many students. I have worked in high school and for the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust; I currently work part-time in Student Support Services at the University of Leeds. I strive to provide a friendly and welcoming environment where you can feel confident that you will receive sympathetic and understanding guidance, whatever your ability level."

|John is an excellent tutor. He has a very friendly and relaxed personality and is fantastic at explaining concepts in multiple ways. He knows exactly what he is talking about and always prepares great content for each session. He has also been very accomodating for when I have had trouble making it to the session and has been willing and able to do sessions effectively over skype/scribblar when required. From teaching me new content that I have never covered to helping me go through past papers, John excelled in all areas. In particular he introduced me to reading examiners comments on the past papers so you can see what the common mistakes people tend to make are. It also gives you an impression as to how easy a paper should have been overall. I would very much recommend John to anyone looking for a tutor. Eddie, 27/06/2017|
