What I Offer?
Providing them guided understanding
It is important for children to have the particular understanding of a topic from an early age. A poor understanding at an early age can be difficult to correct and I will ensure that a good understanding is provided.
Giving them problems to solve and examples
In essence, improving your understanding is down to practice. I will provide your child with many questions to help further their understanding
Focusing on your child’s exam techniques
Exams technique is a different aspect to understanding. Your child will have timed papers in order to simulate exam conditions.
A friendly and enjoyable atmosphere
It is important for your child to enjoy his experience. Children do not have a tendency to ask questions in class due to low self-confidence and low-self esteem. However, due to smaller groups, children are more confident and are able to express themselves.
I have tutored for over seven years from ages ranged from ten to eighteen in both Maths and Sciences, achieving successful grades for both national exams to university and entry requirements to new schools. I have been able to ensure that the full syllabus of the subject is covered so that the child is fully prepared for any exams.
