How would you describe your teaching style?

I have a easy and direct approach to teaching, engaging with the pupil and tailoring the programme to the needs of the individual. I have a passion for mathematics and for education, and I aim to foster a strong sense of inquiry and ambition in my pupils. I have a 'can do' approach to education, and instill in my pupils a strong sense of purpose, coupled with a healthy and realistic ambition. I offer clear and precise explanations of topics and techniques, and where required ensure that subject knowledge is underpinned by a secure understanding of examination technique and requirements.
