If your goal is to (i) get a better GCSE maths grade and (ii) to enjoy getting it, then I'm the tutor for you. My students typically improve by one or two grades; some make even better progress. You will learn (i) how to give perfect answers to GCSE questions from past papers and (ii) how to consolidate that learning to prepare yourself to get the top grades in the actual exam. My method is to teach you a "Think, Do, Think" approach. The first Think is to prepare yourself to do an excellent job. The second Think is to learn how to do it even better next time.

How would you describe your teaching style?

It's all about learning how to think like a mathematician. You see, mathematicians think in a very clear way. You'll learn (i) how to understand the questions, (ii) plan the answer, (iii) write a perfect answer to get all the available marks and (iv) learn from it so you can do it even better and faster next time. There are two clear aspects to being a mathematician: firstly, you know the basic mathematical facts and secondly, you have the mathematical tools and skills to use the facts to provide perfect answers. You will learn these in tutorials with me.
