I have two PGCE’s, (a British Postgraduate teaching qualification), one in Maths and one in Music, so I am qualified to teach both in schools. I have taught Mathematics and Music in secondary schools for over 12 years, and have always tutored along side my teaching job. Now I Tutor Mathematics exclusively.
As you can imagine, with maths being such an important subject worldwide, there are a myriad of examinations that can be taken. Because of this, I have experience tutoring a variety of Maths Qualifications – a lot of these being the courses that are taught in UK and International Schools. I have tutored KS2, KS3, GCSE, iGCSE, A Level, Functional Skills and the Further Maths Qualifications from OCR and AQA. I have also taught Foundation Year Engineering Students and helped prepare adult learners for distance learning exams and professional entrance exams, for example QTS Skills Tests and Armed Forces Entrance Exams.
I also work closely with Apprenticeship providers and businesses to teach Engineering Maths and Functional Skills to City and Guilds Apprentices.
In terms of School Based teaching, I left on a high, having been a member of a Mathematics department belonging to an OFSTED Outstanding secondary school in the North of England. In my last year, we were ranked in the top 10% of Maths Departments in England. I am also an expert examiner for Pearson. This gives me a unique insight into the examination process, and in turn, a greater awareness of what needs to happen for exams to be successfully passed.
