Experienced primary maths teacher offering maths lessons using a Maths Mastery approach in London

**In light of recent developments, I am now available for daytime lessons in person and online via Skype, Zoom or Google Hangouts**

I have availability immediately and throughout the summer.

I specialise in tutoring maths for primary mainstream and SEN children.

I use a Maths Mastery Method which begins with using concrete materials to model problems. Next, I represent these materials with pictures and diagrams. Finally, I move to the abstract where numbers and symbols are used to make a number sentence to represent a problem.

I break down concepts into small steps and provide repetition with variety so that students can apply and generalise their knowledge to a range of contexts to gain procedural fluency and a holistic understanding.

I spend significant time developing a strong knowledge of the foundations of maths and key ideas that are needed to underpin future learning. Connections within maths are emphasised so that students develop deep learning. Students are encouraged to look for patterns and relationships, think mathematically and talk about their findings.

In order to reduce the demand on students' memory to free up more space for the learning of new concepts, we also focus on learning to automaticity key facts such as times tables, number bonds and addition facts.

I review progress with children and parents and give advice on practical strategies in order to support learners in the home.

About Me

I am a creative tutor who is always thinking of the best, most concrete, most engaging, and most motivating ways to deliver a lesson. It is my job to find each child's 'key' to learning each concept taught.

My sessions always start with the learner and his/her strengths in order to build confidence and self-esteem. I discuss goals with the learner and parents, assess to check for any missing gaps, and then carefully plan and design activities that build upon knowledge.

I employ a range of teaching strategies including multi-sensory learning and practical based sessions that are fun and engaging. This allows children to really understand what they are learning and why, and the relationships between new facts and previous learning. Concepts that are deemed ‘too difficult’ at school are broken down into small manageable steps in order for students to gain a sense of achievement.

I encourage children to generate their own information, organize that information, make sense of what they have collected, and communicate their understanding (for example by making a rule or telling me a pattern). This fosters independence, retention, and is the most powerful way for children to learn things for themselves.

Education

I hold a Bachelor of Education, RMIT (Australia) 2003
I hold a Master of Arts- Literacy Learning and Literacy Difficulties, UCL, London, UK, 2019
I have Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)

Experience / Qualifications

I have 16 years of teaching experience and have taught in mainstream and SEN schools. I have been tutoring after school for 8 years and specialize in maths mastery and literacy development including phonics, reading, and writing.

I have worked with a range of special needs including cerebral palsy, dyspraxia, speech and language difficulties, sensory processing disorder, organization and planning difficulties, medical and self-care needs, and children with PMLD, SLD, and MLD. I have experience with writing bespoke, holistic learner specific curriculums, and have written curriculums for SEN schools and home schools.

I have developed and implemented curricula including schemes of work and policies that accommodate learning, physical, sensory, and communication needs developed individualized materials and resources, researched and implemented SEN interventions and programs, devised and written targets and Individual Educational Plans (IEPs) and assessed, monitored and reported on progress.
I support students with learning and development difficulties. I specialise in supporting students with neurological disorders and complex communication needs such as Cerebral Palsy and neurodiverse students with dyscalculia, dyspraxia, ADHD, speech, language and communication needs, and sensory processing needs. My sessions always start with the learner and his/her strengths in order to build confidence and self-esteem. I discuss goals with the learner and parents, assess to check for any missing gaps and then carefully plan and design activities that build upon knowledge. My sessions are stimulating and tailored to your child's specific needs. I carefully monitor students' attention and arousal lessons. If I notice that a student's attention is waning I will typically swap to a physical activity to allow the student to gain the sensory feedback they require and help the student to refocus. My sessions typically incorporate multisensory experiences including kinesthetic learning and multiple changes of activity. I can design programs that are accessible for verbal or non-verbal children, children with complex needs, AAC users, high tech eye gaze or low tech communication system users or learners that just need a little bit of extra support and encouragement away from the mainstream or SEN school setting. I can program AAC devices such as Proloquo2go and MyTobii.
**In light of recent developments, I am now available for daytime lessons in person and online via Skype, Zoom or Google Hangouts** I have availability immediately and throughout the summer. I use the systematic and comprehensive phonics program Read, Write, Inc (RWI). RWI is taught in over 5000 schools in the U.K. to great effect. I also adapt this program to meet the needs of non-verbal learners. I embed phonics teaching within broad literacy approach that encompasses automatic word recognition, comprehension strategies, work on fluency and vocabulary learning and emphasises reading for meaning. Students are then given time and support to apply their new skills to independent reading and writing.

Ismail
Maths, Science, Computer Science, Geography, Economics - Cover all of these subjects upto GCSE level, can do whichever student wants
I specialise in tutoring Maths, Science(triple science as well as combined) as well as many other common GCSE subjects. I will excel at this job as not only do I have an extensive knowledge in maths and science, I also feel that I have an approachable and kind persona that the students will feel at ease with and build a strong relationship. In my experience of mosque tuition I found that in teaching there are two main and important qualities that a student/teacher relationship should have: the ability for the student to feel comfortable to ask the teacher for help and the ability for the teacher to help the student in the way they think will benefit the student most. I can confidently say that my experience in mosque teaching has allowed me to expand in my teaching skills and the way in which it is appropriate to teach students of different ages and abilities. My teaching methodology is dependent on my student and there willingness to learn. If I see a student is happy to individually study, I would allow them to work through a book and come to me for support when encountering areas of difficulty. If not, I would work with them through the book, ensuring they understand each individual topic before moving to the next. I have taught students one year above me as well as many younger kids. I have taught from the age range of 7-15.

Han
Mathematics tutoring from secondary school up to Master by French Master
I am offering my help in tutoring you for all level and age, up to the level Master. I am giving several kind of classes: -classes on a regular basis, to keep up with a certain level -intense classes (over several days/weeks) where the goal is to get ready for an exam or finish up a project. -classes to smooth the integration to higher education (university etc...). My main goal is to guide the student by offering theoretical classes but also practical exercises. I like to emphasize on concrete example since, for many people, mathematics is very abstract and too much about theory. I can also provide help for PHD/Master students having data analysis to perform for their thesis. I can give help for any domain in mathematics: algebra, analysis, statistics, algorithm, logic etc... Please do not hesitate to contact me for further detail.

Private lessons in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry
These courses are intended for those who want to improve their understanding in science subjects. The content of the course allows students to be independent and to supplement the knowledge acquired during the course. The goal is to fill the gaps of the pupil and to improve his school results.

Serdane
Private lessons in mathematics (first to fourth)
My name is Serdane and I offer mathematics classes to students in grades 1 to 4 who are struggling to find a way of working that suits them. Extrovert and bubbly ... and above all, a lot of humor! Everyone learns in his own way. This is why I do not have a rigid method but adapt to the contrary to the specificities of each student. I evaluate its level, its strengths, its possible weaknesses or delays, and I develop my course accordingly. My priority: to restore the student's confidence: maths are within everyone's reach when they are well explained! I believe in active teaching methods: I try to involve the student as much as possible, to make him discover what works for him, so that he can continue his career independently. Finally, I bring specific help when preparing questions or exams in a more difficult subject. My rate includes full tuition (private lessons, the ability to ask questions outside of class time, writing and correcting questions, etc.). Looking forward to reading you !

Sobia
Private tutoring Math for all education levels (GCSE,O/A-level, IB MYP/DP, etc)
I offer lessons in Maths and since 2018 I have been tutoring 20 students on a weekly base. Since 2019 I am teaching maths at the International School of The Hague as well. I've spent a large amount of time teaching/assisting my fellow students and children (up to Graduate level) basic and advanced mathematics as well as physics. I have great experience in tutoring several students of the International of The Hague and the British school (both primary and secondary) following the IB, EB, British curriculum (GCSE, O-level, A-level). I have completed my Bsc degree in double maths and physics and hold a Msc in Mathematics (with a CGPA of 3.91 out of 4.0) . After completing my studies I have held a tutoring academy for short period after which I moved to The Netherlands. I don’t use standard programs or lessons. Instead, I create lessons based on the student's needs and interests. If needed I will hand out exercises to be done at home and some notes on the lesson. The main thing the students have to see is that they are capable of solving a problem and that they can have fun whilst doing so.

Raef
Private lessons in Math, Physics, Chemistry and SVT
The courses of Mathematics - Analysis - Matrices - Statistics - Algebra - Geometry - Physics - Mechanics - Electricity - Chemistry - Organic Chemistry - Biology, Geology of secondary or university levels (French, Belgian, European or international programs) are given by explanations either in-depth either by a quick course and summary of essential need depending on the case of each student supported by exercises from the book or assessments and exams from other high schools. My experience is too long and for years I have learned methods for each case and for each student to fill in their gaps with the best results of Excellent, Very Good and Good as a mention of my students. As well as I can help students to better prepare courses and support to better prepare the duties of CNED in science subjects.

I am a very passionate person and I will try my best to drive you through the science world. My goal is not just reinforcement of the topics, but to apply the acquired knowledge in a more daily basis. I like very much children and I would love also to be able to show them the wonders of science. So if you have doubts, or you want to deep your knowledge just give it a try. For all types of students and all levels.

Christiane
Private math lessons in French by shared interactive whiteboard
I give remote math lessons, in French, by shared interactive board for high school and high school students. I am an architect civil engineer and I have been teaching for 8 years. The most important thing for me is to personalize the lessons, to guide the student so that he understands the subject by himself, so that he manages to organize his work, to structure his reasoning, to manage his time, to manage his stress and finally to gain confidence in him. All this is done by adapting the course to its type of learning, putting all our energy to target and overcome blockages, and finally achieve autonomy. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to write me, I will be happy to answer you as soon as possible.

Benoit
Private Maths Lessons - Limoges or Online - Qualified and Experienced Mathematics Teacher
I am a qualified and experienced private math teacher. Graduated from the Free University of Brussels in 2011, I started my career giving remedial courses in different schools in Brussels. I then specialized in individual tutoring by following a pedagogical training from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I have been giving private math lessons daily for almost 10 years. Pleasantly surprised by the impact of my lessons on the school career of my students, in 2018 I created Math Coaching, an online tutoring platform. The platform provides students around the world with quality educational content focused on making math learning easier. The students who follow my private lessons benefit from personalized support. The first session is devoted to an in-depth assessment of the student's mathematical knowledge. The objective is to detect its weak points and understand their origin in order to adapt my courses to its needs. I develop a tailor-made remediation program for each of my students aimed at filling each of their gaps. Over the course of the sessions, the student builds a solid foundation for learning and regains self-confidence. At the same time, I help him acquire a work methodology that allows him to gradually become autonomous in his studies. I have a perfect knowledge of the mathematics program of the College and the High School (from the Sixth to the Terminale). During my formative years, I studied and developed many techniques that make it easier to learn math. The strength of my pedagogical approach lies in my ability to explain in a simple way everything that the student finds complicated. I am passionate about this job because it gives me the opportunity to guide dropout students on the path to success. It is a real pleasure to see them evolve and come to terms with the fantastic world of mathematics. I give my private lessons in Limoges (at the student's home) or remotely (by internet). My distance learning courses take place on an interactive online whiteboard. This table is specially designed to promote student / teacher interaction on the internet. Thanks to this educational tool, my online courses are as effective as home courses. The student only needs an internet connection and a computer, a tablet, or a smartphone to use it.
