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.

Daniel

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.

REVIEW + SPECIAL COURSES IN PHYSICAL MATHEMATICS ELECTRONICS CHEMISTRY (courses, exercises, exams corrected)
Professor in mathematics, computer science at HEFF in Brussels and before a professor of electronics at the IEPSCF, ENGINEER in electronics ECAMIEN graduated in mathematics-physics and I propose an individualized pedagogy, an aid in the preparation of the interrogations or exams. My goal is to advance the student without overloading him. I give homework after each lesson and periodically provide progress reports. I strongly encourage the student because the state of mind and morale have a direct influence on school results. I am someone understandable and I always try to take each one in his own way. I always start by clarifying the course after giving an example then give an example to the student more to do a complete exercise and finally correct a review together generally it's that methodology but it can change from one case to another review the courses studied in class. give remarks that makes the job easier. give the tips and tricks you need to get a good rating. try to make the student fast in these calculations and these demonstrations and give the way with which he has to manage his duty.

Benoit
Private Maths Lessons - Limoges or Online - Qualified and Experienced Mathematics Teacher
I am a young, qualified and experienced mathematics tutor. While each child encounters unique learning difficulties, the ever increasing number of students per class is forcing teachers to standardize their teaching method. Faced with this observation, I decided to specialize in individual tutoring in order to guide each student on the path to success. 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 whiteboard. This educational tool considerably improves the student / teacher interaction. The student only needs a computer, a tablet, or a smartphone to use it. The first session is devoted to an in-depth assessment of his knowledge in mathematics. The goal is to identify its weak points and understand their origin. I then adapt the content of my courses to their specific needs. I make it a tailor-made remediation program aimed at gradually filling each of its shortcomings. At the same time, I support the student in learning new subjects by making sure that he masters the mathematical notions necessary for the validation of his school year. I also do substantive work teaching the most effective learning methods. Finally, thanks to modern means of communication, the pupil benefits from emergency assistance accessible remotely 7 days a week (help with homework, explanation the day before an assessment, etc.).

I provide personal and individual guidance for a wide range of subject areas. I contact the teachers for each subject the student has, to ensure that the material that is being covered in the tutoring session is the exact same as that of the class. My students immediately see a noticeable improvement in their grades as the I help them to focus on time management skills as well. I focus on enhancing study skills and encourage the students to become autonomous learners that strive for academic excellence.

Dr S Iyer
Highly experienced 1-on-1 Math tutor : IB Diploma, IGCSE, Cambridge AS-level, A-levels, AP Calculus, SAT, ACT, GRE,GMAT, MAT, TMUA, STEP
I am Dr S Iyer- a tutor with over 16 years of teaching experience as of 2020 and several hundreds of students from all parts of the globe. I teach one-on-one online over Zoom/ Skype/ Google Meet/ Teams using a pen tablet and the screen-share feature. My teaching adopts a great deal of "Learn by Doing" methodology that leverages the power of web based interactive tools. I have helped several students to do remarkably well in areas like Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus, Statistics. I have experience with various syllabi and therefore, a good sense of what is emphasised by each of them. These include: IB Diploma, Cambridge AS and A levels, Cambridge IGCSE, AP Calculus, ICSE, CBSE Oxford MAT, TMUA, STEP etc. I also prepare students for competitive tests like the ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT. More than anything, I trust that if I can replace the "fear" of a subject with "love" for it, then I would have truly made a difference to the student.

Romaric
Private lessons in Maths Physics Chemistry and Biology
The support I give you in Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics is very practical and is based on the explanation of the courses followed by in-depth exercises on the chapters covered in class. Free to ask all questions relating to the chapter and the concepts covered, tests are available to prepare you for class assignments and exams. I am patient and tolerant so whatever your nature, we will get along perfectly. Always available to follow you and I do whatever it takes to help you enjoy chemistry, physics and math. All my students who at the beginning had difficulties in Chemistry, physics or mathematics, end up excelling in these subjects with very good marks. Roland, whom I particularly thank, was one of my students who initially had enough gaps in chemistry. But from the first lessons, he started by better understanding the concepts and even finished his baccalaureate with very good grades in physics and chemistry.

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) .

Sara
Physics, Maths, Natural Science, Biology, Chemistry, Italian and Spanish
My name is Sara, I'm an italian student with a Bachelor Degree in Physics. Currently, I'm doing a Master in Astrophysics in Berlin. I offer private lessons of Physics and Mathematics for students of different ages. I have accumulated a lot of experience with many different students, having worked also as a Tutor in my University in different support courses. My native language is Italian (so it could be also a chance, if you're interested, to learn in another language), but I speak fluent English and Spanish. I propose adaptive study strategies according to the needs of the student, possibly offering support material such as notes, diagrams and forms. During the lessons, it is possible to face and consolidate together the theoretical part and, gradually, put it into practice with various types of exercises.
