Over 5 Years Experience as a Teacher
I understand that Mathematics is an intimidating and hugely daunting subject to tackle for most students not least because reading a Maths question that you don’t understand can be like trying to read a foreign language that you can’t speak. However by teaching students to break problems down into smaller chunks we can turn a daunting mountain of a question into a series of manageable mole hills.
I have over 5 years of experience as a teacher. I believe that learning is a long life journey and I always instill my students with an excitement for that journey.
I have excellent communication skills and am very approachable. Students are always comfortable in asking me as many questions as they need to in order to understand the subject. I always remind them that “There is no such thing as a silly question! The more questions you ask the quicker you will learn”.
Each child is different which means that I tailor each of my lessons to suit each student. I have different teaching techniques to ensure that I am able to explain, what may seem like a complex topic, in a simple and effective manner.
I make sure to equip them with tools and the confidence they need to build and expand their knowledge, also acting as a guide and allowing their curiosity to direct learning.
My primary objective is to help students reach their fullest potential in all areas by providing an environment safe enough and support risk-taking.

I was the Head of the Business Studies Department. I taught Economics, Accounts and Business Studies to students in Year 10-12. I taught with the aid of a detailed lesson plan which was structured in accordance with the British Curriculum for IGCSE. I ensured tests and assignments were issued to students at the end of each topic to make sure the students grasped the topic. I also made use of past questions to familiarize the students with the format of questions that are asked in the IGCSE examinations. I also taught A level students in preparation for their examinations.
