Hello, I'm Lisa, and I'm in my eleventh year of teaching and private tuition of Maths and the sciences. Please note that all tuition is online until at least May 2021.
I have an excellent track record of boosting student grades. After gaining my BSc in 1995 I worked in industry, gaining my MSc on the way, until retraining to be a teacher in 2009 and going on to complete the two-year Diploma in Teaching and Learning in the Lifelong Learning Sector (DTLLS) at the University of Warwick in 2014.
The first four years of my teaching career were spent teaching Maths at Key Stage 3, GCSE, AS/A2, Functional Skills and university access level at an international school. I then spent three years teaching Maths part-time at the local Further Education College while starting to privately tutor students in Maths and the Sciences.
Over the last seven years I have successfully tutored over sixty students from 11+ and Common Pre-Test through to A-level, and university entrance examinations such as STEP, MAT and TMAU. Since September 2017 I have provided intervention groups, intensive revision courses and one-to-one tuition for local schools and colleges at GCSE and A-level alongside my private tuition work.
I offer tailored, one-to-one tuition in Maths and the Sciences. I aim to develop enjoyment and confidence in the subject by using a problem-solving approach to exam questions in which I provide a supportive environment for students to work things out for themselves as much as possible. This is the best way to encourage deep learning. If working towards an exam we will work closely with the syllabus and past exam papers to target revision in the most effective way, paying particular attention to what is needed to jump over the next grade boundary.
