I am a second year undergraduate studying Natural Sciences. I have a strong background in maths and enjoy teaching it. Since the beginning of my A-levels I began tutoring 11+ (mainly Maths and English). For the past 4 years have extended my experience, tutoring a range of children, helping them prepare for their 11+, GCSE, and A-level maths exams. I also tutor Chemistry and Physics at various levels, as I have mentored GCSE groups in these subjects. I am flexible with timings of lessons, and always make my lessons both fun and engaging for my students, allowing them to understand the material and be motivated for self-study and improve their work ethic. In my experience, these have been the strongest skills needed to excel in such subjects, therefore I ensure they are developed in my students too.
I am a fully qualified Maths teacher. I have 22 years experience as a private Maths tutor, teaching all ages from Primary to adult, with the major focus on GCSEs. All of the students I taught passed their GCSEs successfully. I have also taught for 10 years in a large Pupil Referral Unit in Lewisham. For the first 3 years, I worked exclusively with SEN students, which I loved. It is so satisfying being able to instil a love of Maths into previously disengaged students. These students had a wide range of needs ( complex social and emotional needs, ADHD, Asperger's and Autism). For the next 3 years, I taught Maths to Years 7-9 students. These students had a wide range of abilities. After this, I taught GCSE students (Years 9-12) and I had a very highly successful pass rate. Throughout my teaching career, I had 1-1 sessions with students who either needed extra help or who were preparing for exam deadlines. I am passionate about making Maths understandable and fun, so that students who came to me with disinterest and dislike of the subject were able to come to the point where they understood the subject and felt able to succeed. I have taught the full spectrum of ability, from those who could barely succeed in the most basic functions, to those who needed to be challenged to higher accomplishments. I am very familiar with the new Foundation Curriculum and would prefer to teach this as opposed to the Higher Curriculum. I retired from full-time teaching 3 years ago and since then have taught as a supply teacher in a London primary school, having two groups (one of top achievers, who were ahead of most of their classmates ) and one of students who were considered to have behavioural difficulties and were low achievers. I have also taught GCSE Foundation Maths privately in this time (both Edexcel and AQA exam boards). For me, my key to teaching successfully is to build a relationship with the student based on mutual trust and respect and a high level of communication. I also like to ensure that each student is given the time to fully understand a subject before moving to the next. Lastly, I like the students to enjoy themselves!
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Brunel University. I specialise in Maths, English, Psychology and special educational needs. I have high expectations of my pupils with regards to them trying their personal best. I have a calm yet firm nature and believe in boosting the self confidence of my pupils as well as their academic knowledge so that they can thrive in their fields of study. I have taught in OFSTED Outstanding primary schools as well as Private SEN secondary schools covering pupils in primary, secondary and A level psychology pupils with outstanding results. I have specialist certification related to children with Autism and attention deficit disorder. My students on average are able to improve their grade in a very short amount of time. For example, I had an A level Psychology student who was able to improve his grade from a E grade to a C after 8 sessions with me. My teaching method is highly interactive. I believe in using different learning styles to enhance the experience of learning. This leads to effective teaching as well as a deeper understanding and enjoyment of learning from my students. I am very passionate about teaching and most parents and students say that what makes me stand out as a tutor is that they can see that I actually care for my students. I have high expectations of my students and I support my students with self confidence in believing that they can also thrive to the best of their ability. I believe that I can make a positive difference in my pupils lives and I take pride in doing so. Should you wish for your child to work with me, I am sure that you will not be disappointed with the results.
My degree a B.Sc. in Maths, with Psychology as a subsidiary (Leicester University). I have a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (University of London Institute of Education). After graduating, I worked part-time at Barnet College of Technology teaching various classes from numeracy to A-Level. My main experience is in teaching one-to-one, which I have been doing since I was an undergraduate in the 1980s, and so I have had many years to hone a style which must be adapted to suit the many different students. I am always wary of trying to push students too hard and l would rather do a limited amount that they understand properly than overwhelm them trying to cover the whole syllabus. Of course they want to do well in the exam and so we may need to talk about things like the grade they are likely to achieve, how much they are willing/able to do and whether it is worth the effort. I was with another agency until they recently folded and it was through them that I attended a course in July 2016 (14 GBAM01): Getting Ready to Teach Pearson's new GCSE (9-1) Mathematics specification from 2015. When I joined the agency in 2013, they sent a form to my referee, Dr Iqbal, which he kindly completed and sent to me to be used as a testimonial: From Dr Annum Iqbal-12 April 2013 Re: Reference for Mr Nick FENTON (Maths) The above named person has applied to this agency to work as a private tutor, at the pupil's home or at the tutor's home, and has given your name as a referee. Please could you answer the following questions in confidence and send back this e-mail. 1. Do you consider the applicant suitable to work as a private tutor? Yes, we can confidently recommend Nick as a very good maths tutor. He started with our eldest son about 2009 tutoring him for GCSE (grade A*) and subsequently A level (grade A). Then Nick tutored our middle son who also achieved GCSE grade A* and A level grade A. Finally, our youngest son was coached for GCSE maths and achieved A* and at A level maths grade A. Nick is punctual and always very courteous. On many occasions, he spends longer than the scheduled time. Kind Regards Dr Annum Iqbal Below is a testimonial from the mother of a son and daughter whom I taught from 2007 to 2012: My two children have been tutored by Nick since year 10 till the end of A-Level Both of them achieved A* in maths and further maths. Also, they like his teaching style. Mrs Pang Finally, my hobbies at present include tennis, Modern Greek and old cars.

Since my A-level's and bachelor degree, I have already gained a lot of experience in private tutoring, teaching GCSE students in Economics, Mathematics and Mandarin. I've worked with a number of GCSE and A-level students this academic year, all of them have shown great progress. I have been an associate in culture and history in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and have developed very comprehensive curriculum and content of a teaching and learning project with the latest interactive AR technology. With my specialised knowledge in art history and other social science subjects, I always tailor the teaching materials according to the strengths of different students. The first student I had was an undergraduate who was going to apply for a master programme in performing arts research. Since the aim was at a postgraduate course, I customised more investigative topics for in-depth discussions accompanied by more philosophical critical texts. At the moment, I am helping a dyslexic student for an A-Level exam of art history. As the subject is quite literature-based but the student has severe problem in comprehending textual materials, I provided her with more audiovisual/multimedia materials in order to let her memorise the key concepts and artworks more efficiently.
I am currently a biomedical science undergraduate student, I did A level biology, mathematics and chemistry. I was a prefect and mathematics leader in sixth form which required me to teach KS2 and KS3 mathematics to younger students. I am currently a student mentor at my university. I did private tutoring for 1 and a half years in sixth form, teaching GCSE mathematics to a year 11 student.
I've taught and tutored mathematics for 23 years now. In my career I have been mathematics teacher, subject leader and consultant so I have an in-depth knowledge of the school curriculum, the requirements of each of the exam boards and have a range of teaching strategies to meet the needs of all learners. I tutor students from all school year groups as well as adults. In particular I support students with 11 plus, end of Key Stage 2, entrance exams, GCSE, Functional Skills and A Level. I am familiar with the content of all exam boards. I am also happy to teach work related exam content as long as I am given the relevant information beforehand. Before working with a student I like to know about their aims, relevant learning needs and prior learning information. How I teach is decided by how my student learns. The topic to be taught is chosen by the student beforehand or by my assessing them. Typically I ask the student to explain what they know in the topic so far and help them to learn any gaps or misconceptions in learning. I then model the next step before giving them questions on the topic which become progressively harder bringing in reasoning and problem solving to ensure mastery. I like then to quiz at them end or the beginning of the next session to check understanding. I welcome questions at all times and will adapt what I am doing at any time to ensure learning is taking place. When preparing students for exams I use exam papers from the relevant exam board.
