Meet some of our experienced maths tutors

I love teaching maths to kids.  When you see them glimmer with understanding and you hear ‘I get it!’  It can be the most rewarding.  That’s what teaching is all about.

It is amazing to see each child make positive relationships with the subject and build upon their skills to complete tricky questions they never thought they could.  I bring my own passion for maths into tutoring by engaging children and making sure they are having fun too!

How to help your child with maths

Support their self-belief 

First comes confidence, then comes success.  Encourage your child to overcome challenges and to see them as an opportunity to learn something new!

Understand the curriculum 

Becoming an expert in understanding the curriculum and what your child needs to master at each age can support their progress.

Encourage independent learning 

Support your child to revise and go over newly learnt skills solo, then ask them to show you their work after.  This method encourages children to take control over their own learning.

Promote applied maths 

Once your child has the basics mastered, focus on working on applied skills, putting their core knowledge to use in real life scenarios such as baking or reading bus timetables.
