I completed my PGCE in Secondary Maths in June 2017 as an outstanding trainee teacher and have continued engaging in my own teaching development since. Before that I was a SEN specialised Teaching Assistant. I demonstrate a strong work ethic to my students by currently undertaking a Masters Degree in Professional Development in Education through the University of Exeter. I have been teaching year 7 to 11 mathematics for the past 3 academic years, with informal experience before that through outreach programmes at my university. I enjoy adapting and refining my teaching to the needs of the student, whether that be due to gaps in knowledge, low self confidence, teacher absence, or learning needs. I have experience teaching students with Asperges Syndrome on a one to one basis, along with dyslexic, dyspraxia, echolalia, cerebral palsy and ADHD. I truly believe that everyone is able to be successful with mathematics. I design my lessons to build on previous knowledge, increase confidence and head for success. This is tailored to each individual student by analysing past work and mock exams. I am familiar with the Edexcel, OCR and AQA curriculum and the recent changes to the GCSE syllabus. I have recently been an Examiner for both Edexcel and OCR, affording me a robust knowledge into expectations and outcomes for GCSE examinations.
I have over 15 years of teaching and tutoring experience and an enhanced DBS. I teach Mathematics at a Secondary school and I pride myself in enabling students to make progress through interactive, fun and challenging lessons. A free 30 minute consultation means that I can tailor lessons to the individual learner.
I specialise in Mathematics at Key Stage 2, 3 and 4. I can also prepare students for 11 plus and Grammer school entry exams.

I am a fully qualified teacher of mathematics with many years' experience in both teaching and private tutoring.
My tutoring style is enthusiastic and responsive, placing emphasis on students feeling safe to practice their mathematics in a supportive environment. Students are encouraged to engage in problem solving with the concepts they have learned to actively develop their understanding.
I believe the key to a good learning environment is to build the confidence of the student by reinforcing their understanding and boosting their self esteem. My tutoring is tailored to the individual student which ensures that each session is as useful as possible and is always a positive learning experience.
Outside of tutoring, I enjoy running and improvised theatre. In the last few years I have run the Brighton Marathon and performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
I studied for degrees in Mathematics at Keele University and Oxford University and have over 35 years teaching experience in Private Schools, Grammar Schools and Colleges.
I am also a tutor for Oxford Home Schooling and for The Open University, and am an approved tutor for tutorsandexams.
I have had articles published in "Mathematics in Schools" and several worksheets on teachitmaths.
I have provided private tuition also for about 35 years now, and have had literally hundreds of successful students credited to my record over that time.
I provide a very professional service and tutor not only those at school, but also to adults.
I pride myself in providing first class tuition through my years of experience and excellent subject knowledge. Having set many exams over the years I teach students precisely how to answer exam questions to maximise their marks.
I cater for all levels and all ages: Basic Maths, Grammar School Entrance Exams, 11+, 13+, SATs, GCSE, AS/A Level, Further Maths, etc.
There are times when young people need some extra help; maybe they have a learning difficulty that makes mass education too traumatic for them, maybe homelife or pressure from school or peers has become too chaotic to cope.
Whatever the reason they may have for losing confidence or interest in education; Innovate wants to help.
At Innovate Dorset, we believe it's vital to help young people regain their momentum and enjoyment of learning, so they can quickly re-join their classmates, but sometimes a more extended, more planned out approach is necessary.
Our Tutors are patient and supportive and follow the same practice as our Mentors to build a solid professional friendship based on mutual trust and respect.
Aiming to support the learner reintegrate back into education or those who intend to complete English and Math Fundamentals level 1 and 2 and planning to proceed on into further college education.
Innovate Tutors can also help if a “Managed Move” for a student is taking place, by keeping the young person engaged with education until the move is complete and the student is settled in.
