My tutoring approach

I specialize in teaching Mathematics from key stage 2 to 5. I possess a mature and constructive eclectic teaching approach with excellent ability to communicate and have effective working relationships between staff, students and parents. I am a confident and hard working individual. I enjoy using my own and the team initiative in all aspects of academic work, but above all, what inspires me the most, is the satisfaction of getting positive results from my students.

I am aware that students and parents are crucial to a responsive student attitude and therefore I am very passionate about building a successful learning environment and meeting the needs of children and school mandates. I am determined to continue my significant contribution to suitable students.
