Maths with Jonathan H

Enthusiatic and Patient Maths Tutor

I am a Masters student at KCL, achieving First Class grades. Previously, I have tutored and supported children as a Learning Support Assistant at KS2, having completed an induction course for Primary Teaching assistance. This coupled with my previous role as an Outdoor Education Instructor has resulted in developing my innate ability to build friendly and professional rapports with children, which I have found to conducive to both encouraging confidence and enthusiasm towards learning.

Whilst working as an LSA I oversaw the tutoring of a small group of children struggling with timetables, which through patience and positive reinforcement saw their success rate rocket. I also planned and held 1:1 sessions with children who were struggling generally at school. Through the use of engaging, hands-on resources outside of the classroom, I was able to create a fun and motivated environment in which the children were able to move forward in areas of learning that they had found difficult within the pressures of a classroom. This was both rewarding for the children and myself. This was aided by my role as an Outdoor Education Instructor, where I was able to develop skills to motivate children in alternative ways.

In my spare time I enjoy hiking, cycling and playing badminton, and generally being outdoors. I also read extensively, non-fiction and fiction alike. I also attend weekly 'Practical Philosophy' classes, where we discuss philosophies from East to West and learn practices and wisdom to create more mindfulness, awareness and empathy in our daily life. In my time as an LSA I found short, mindful exercises to be greatly beneficial to the children I worked with, settling and focusing them on the present activity and helping to calm any anxieties about learning.
