Hi! My name is Chris and I'm a fully qualified maths teacher with experience teaching and tutoring a wide range of ages and abilities. I always tailor my sessions specifically for the individuals requirements, but I always have understanding of the "why" and not just the "how" as a top priority. Whatever your needs are, be it confidence boosting and practice, being pushed beyond what is encountered in the classroom, or specific exam preparation, I am confident I can help and that we'll enjoy the process!

How would you describe your teaching style?

I always require students to think! I believe all of maths makes perfect sense if one can see where the results have come from. I build up to the key ideas progressively, taking the students along with me whilst asking questions along the way to see if they can derive the results themselves. I ask students to justify their answers to explore and understand their thinking process to make sure any misconceptions are identified and removed. I believe in a balance of building fluency and confidence with "skill based" questions that can be answered quickly, then developing the students thinking with more involved "problem solving" questions. I am always upbeat, positive and patient whilst teaching. I love the subject and I love enabling learning to take place!

What qualifications do you have?

I have an integrated master's degree in Mathematics, and a PGCE in Secondary Mathematics with Qualified Teacher Statues achieved.

Tell us about your experience...

What locations do you tutor in?
