Conceptual Math for Struggling Young Learners Years K-5

This class is designed for students from kindergarten through year 5 who find the fundamentals of math difficult to understand. Around year two, students begin to make the jump from learning to count to actually making numbers. This course will help students navigate this jump as we will understand how numbers are composed and how they grow. We will identify patterns, breaking numbers apart and reassembling them in new configurations. This course is designed to slow down the learning process and use play to understand the inner-workings of math. Conceptual math moves away from memorization and instead engages the ideas behind addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division so that the student can forge and deeper and longer lasting connection to arithmetic.

About Me

I am a graduating masters student completing the Human Geography and Urban Studies program at the London School of Economics. As a published writer I have a background in journalism, academic, investigative, and creative writing. With an academic background in human geography as well as anthropology I am well equipped to support students in english, geography, and history. I also have an undergraduate degree in French Studies and spent a semester interning at the non-profit organization SOS Racisme in Paris, France.

One on one tutoring and teacher attention has been an essential component of my academic journey. My own struggles have inspired my approach to tutoring as I use a scaffolding approach to distill larger concepts into more manageable pieces. I am particularly influenced by my high school's pedagogy to support students to "learn how to think"; to support students in finding their own unique ways of approaching a subject and to foster critical thinking skills.

Education

I received distinction from the London School of Economics's Msc Human Geography and Urban studies program. Before that I attended Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT USA where I earned an honors degree in Anthropology & French Studies (GPA: 3.54).

Science and Maths tuition made easy (life’s difficult so why over complicate things?)
Maths and science are among the most useful topics in the world today. And yet, rather frustratingly, these topics remain rather incomprehensible for many students (with a good majority finding them extremely difficult) With my sessions I do my best to make both maths and science as engaging and enjoyable as possible. The main goal is not just to overload students with information but also to try to gain some insight into the both topics - hopefully students will come out of lessons much better at science and with an appreciation for how weird and wonderful the world truly is

Oliver
Every child is a math genius | British tutor
When I was a young child, I believed I was not a mathematical person. It wasn't until I met an amazing teacher at age 15 that I discovered my mathematical genius and my life was changed forever. I'm eternally grateful to that teacher. My teacher knew that self-image and self-belief is the key to unlocking your child's mathematical abilities. Everyone is good at maths, but we all have different styles of thinking. Bad teachers teach every child the same way. My job is to find your child's style of mathematics and allow him to discover that for himself. When he discovers that, he will begin to enjoy the beauty and power of mathematics...and then you will see as the grades begin to soar. 👉Click the blue "Contact Oliver" button above and let's discuss how we can unlock your child's mathematical talents! 😊

Private Science Lessons - Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics
Dear student, I am a chemist who has graduated from EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology). I have always been fascinated by science, and I now hold a doctorate in solid-state physics from the University of Geneva. Science subjects can greatly assist you in passing your exams. I have been teaching these disciplines for many years, conducting exercise sessions both at the university and in private lessons as an independent tutor. For this reason, you will have the opportunity to request explanations on any subject. It is indeed beneficial for you to make progress based on your existing knowledge. You can choose to receive remedial lessons to review or explore entire chapters. Before the first lesson commences, I will invite you to freely and openly share your situation, enabling us to work effectively from the very first session. All scientific subjects share a common method known as "scientific logic." Whenever possible, I will provide you with elements of this method, as it will enable you to gain a lasting understanding and solve exercises rigorously. Your studies are of utmost importance, and it is crucial that you are taken seriously. Best regards, Julien

Mathematics Tutoring Lessons - 11+/KS3/GCSE/A-Level
I am able to teach Maths at all levels, from KS3 to A-Level. During my schooling career, I achieved 7x 9s and 2x 8s in my GCSEs, and 4 A*s in A-Levels in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Chemistry, and Physics. I have mentored students through online platforms such as Zero Gravity and co-founded a university mentoring business called PersonalPath. Here, I have taught students at an A-Level capability and helped them with their university applications, with 40% of our students receiving offers from top UK universities, including Oxbridge. As someone who understands how daunting exams can be, I am looking forward to helping students boost their mathematical capability and confidence.

Tamara
Biology, Chemistry, and general tuition for children and teens
Primary and Secondary Education is very important for the development of children and teenagers. Learning should also be about finding out what you enjoy to study, finding areas of strength, and tackling areas of weakness. I aim to make learning an enjoyable process for student, having recently just finished my secondary education. I am flexible in what I teach, ranging from most subjects at a primary school level, but also going as far as to GCSE content in Biology and Chemistry. Classes will include teaching specific, requested content, ranging from content for primary, 11+, and GCSE in specific subjects (eg Biology, Chemistry).

Science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology). SCIENCE IN EASY AND UNDERSTANDING WAY.
Science is vital for understanding and improving the world we live in. A good science education will excite the imagination and inspire, develop valuable skills for life and work, and enable people to make informed choices and help shape the future. Physics helps us to organize the universe. It deals with fundamentals, and helps us to see the connections between seemly disparate phenomena. Physics gives us powerful tools to help us to express our creativity, to see the world in new ways and then to change it. Physics is useful.
